Ensuring your deck is in tip top shape is relatively easy, with affordable and easy-to-use products from Cabot’s. Cabot’s Aquadeck is a durable, low odour decking oil designed to provide exceptional durability to all exterior surfaces. Its formula allows oils to penetrate and nourish timber, and create a durable barrier for additional protection. Cabot’s shopping list comprises: Cabot’s Deck Clean; Cabot’s Deck Scrub Broom; Cabot’s Aquadeck; & Cabot’s Lambswool Applicator.
Step 1: Deck Prep 9:00 – 10:30am: Firstly, prepare a mix of Cabot’s Deck Clean and water, and scrub it into the timber with a Cabot’s Deck Scrub Broom. This will help remove any surface contaminants that could affect the coating.
Step 2: Coat your deck 11:30 – 12:30pm: On your clean and dry deck, apply Aquadeck using a lambswool applicator. Apply liberally along the entire length of the board and coat about 2-3 boards at a time. For colour uniformity, be sure to stir Cabot’s Aquadeck thoroughly with a broad, flat paddle before and during use. To avoid making application marks in the finish, never stop coating a board mid-way along the board. Always work up to the end of a board or find natural breaks such as joins or corners. Allow two hours between coats.
Step 3: Recoat your deck 2:30 – 3:30pm: Once your first coat is dry, apply a second coat of Aquadeck, following the same process as before. When you’re done wash your tools in water. Allow two hours before replacing furniture back on your deck.
