What products we are using for the timber decks?

We always prefer to use paint whenever possible. Oil-based stains are known for their durability and ability to provide long-lasting protection to wood. They are designed to penetrate deeply into the wood fibers, which helps to protect the wood from water, UV rays, and other environmental factors.

Compared to water-based stains, oil-based stains are generally more resistant to wear and tear, and they tend to hold up better over time. This is because they form a stronger bond with the wood, which makes them less likely to peel or flake.

However, it’s important to note that the durability of an oil-based stain can be influenced by a number of factors, including the quality of the product, the type of wood being stained, and the conditions in which the stain is applied. For example, if the wood is not properly prepared before the stain is applied, or if the stain is applied in hot or humid conditions, the durability of the stain may be compromised. To ensure the best possible results and maximum durability, it’s important to carefully follow the manufacturer’s instructions for applying the stain and to properly prepare the wood surface beforehand. Additionally, regular maintenance and upkeep, such as cleaning and reapplication of the stain as needed, can help to prolong the life of the finish and keep it looking great for years to come.

Benefits of oil-based stain.

Oil-based stains are often preferred for decks because they offer several benefits over water-based stains. Here are some reasons why:

  1. Durability: Oil-based stains penetrate deeper into the wood fibers than water-based stains, providing better protection against the elements. This makes them more durable and long-lasting.
  2. Water resistance: Oil-based stains are naturally water-resistant, making them ideal for outdoor use. They help to repel water, preventing it from penetrating the wood and causing damage.
  3. Richer color: Oil-based stains have a richer and more natural-looking color than water-based stains. This is because they penetrate deeper into the wood and bring out the natural beauty of the wood grain.
  4. Easier to apply: Oil-based stains are easier to apply than water-based stains because they have a longer drying time, giving you more time to work with the product before it dries.
  5. Easier to maintain: Oil-based stains are easier to maintain than water-based stains because they don’t peel or flake as easily. This means you won’t have to reapply the stain as often, saving you time and money in the long run.

It’s worth noting, however, that oil-based stains do have some drawbacks. They can emit more fumes than water-based stains, and they take longer to dry. They also require mineral spirits or other solvents for cleanup, which can be more difficult and less eco-friendly than water-based stain cleanup.
