New Timber Prep imitates the exact effects of weathering, by drawing out the timber’s tannins and oils.
After 15 minutes, rinse away the residue with a hose, leaving the surface ready for coating.
Once the deck is dry, it is ready for coating.
Stir the Cabot’s Aquadeck to ensure that the colour is well mixed and even.Start by carefully cutting in around the edges of the deck with a paintbrush. Apply oil to three or four boards at a time using the Cabot’s Deck Coat Applicator.
Always work along the whole length of a board to a natural break to prevent patchy results.
Allow 1 hour to dry for the first coat and then reapply.
