About Decking Oil and Decking Stain

Decorative Oils & Stains for Protecting your Decking

Decking oils and stains have increased in popularity recently, as more and more people are turning to wooden decking as a way of enhancing their gardens. Those with old decking are looking to bring their weathered decks back to life too, and one way to do this is with a quality decking stain or oil.

Because wood is a natural substance, it will expand and contract (depending on the varying amounts of moisture it absorbs). The expansion can cause cracks and damage to the decking, which of course nobody wants. Water isn’t the only thing that can damage your decking, however. UV rays from natural sun exposure can also have an enormous impact on the appearance of your decking.

With weather having such a big effect on exterior wood, the importance of finding a quality treatment is high.
