easy to use,make sure to mix it well
i cleaned my deck with a napisan solution before oiling,the first coat was dry in 2 days i recoated making sure not to apply too much.the 2nd coat was dry in 2-3days and i was happy with the result iwaited approx 5months and applied another coat and am still happy with the results.
Simply Does The Job
I chose this after much research. I used "natural" colour to enhance grain of timber decking. It went on easily with a roller after cutting in edges with a brush. I wiped of excess with a cloth ten minutes after each coat. So far, it has impressed producing a lovely dull sheen and enhancing the natural grain. It's cheaper than most other decking oils, but from my experience and others, appears to be better. Happy oiling.
Exact finish I’d hoped for!
I read the mixed reviews on this forum before committing to try this product. So glad I went with my gut feeling and bought it. The jetty now looks like the day it was built. Very happy with British Paints natural colour decking oil. Will definitely be buying this product for the next application.
Found the BP oil base decking oil easy and quick to apply. It needed to be as I have over 160 square meters of decking at various levels. Makes decking on the place look great. Unfortunately, to maintain this I have been recoating it annually; at some point the timber will become nicely saturated and this may turn into a biannual event.Just hope BP continue to make the stuff; and leave the recipe as is.
Surprisingly good and excellent value for money
Used it on our 2 year old deck, which had been oiled with a MUCH more expensive product. It went on easily, covered well, and made the deck look brand new again. Thee only downside is that it remained a bit sticky for a few days. It is a great product at a wonderful price. I will be using it exclusively from now on!
Good value ,excellent depth of colour and coverage
Decking is 20 square metres under cover and 5 years old. Gave a good scrub down with decking cleaner over very faded original cheap stain over pine decking..
I was looking at water -based products but reviews were very inconsistent so decided to go for oil-based Merbau colour. Had mind set on Cabot's but was not happy with sample colours then spotted British Paints colour which appeared very good in samples. I ended up buying 12 litres which was applied with brush for edges and along walls then a lambswool applicator. First coat got soaked into the old timber quickly but on the second coat the colour was superb with just the right amount of low sheen-not glossy.I probably applied the second coat a little too heavily but after 12 hours of drying in mild weather it was settled down smoothly. It obviously smells during the drying process but it was outside. Decking now looks better than when originally done. 'Onya British Paints. First time I've ever used this brand
best product for our decking
Excellent product at an excellent price. Have just used 12 litres, would not buy anything else for our decked verandah
Easy to use, needed very little mixing. The oil held well on the brush and dld not splash on the walls.
Have tried other products in the past but this has been the easiest to use with best results. Love the 6 litre can, great value
wow just used this for the first time today special 6 liters for about 55 dollars at Bunnings wont use another product ever again . Fantastic oil based goes on decking like butter . I was a bit worried about using a oil based oil but I would recommend this product to anyone
Trust British Paints? - Sure can
After reading the various reviews, I went for the oil based and it was a good choice. After ensuring it was shaken/mixed properly. I had prepped the deck prior by removing old stain. It went on easily. It has brought the deck back to life and it looks a treat.
I wouldn't use anything else
I have tried Cabots, Intergrain and Feast Watson brands in the Natural Decking Oil finish and found that these would leave my decking much darker than desired, and any excess is clearly visible if allowed to dry.
The British Paints Natural Decking Oil an Oil based product, unlike some of the others, and it is quite thin. I found that it can be easily and effectively applied using a 230 mm roller, with minimal roller head flex when working the oil into the deck.
Any excess does not leave the unsightly yellow marks that that I have found with other brands. It does enhance the deck without significantly changing the hue of the deck stain. It is available at a fraction of the price of the other big name brands.
No sediment or pigments were found in the bottom of the can, and only needed minimal stirring.
Inexpensive, a true oil unlike other water based products, readily available
Nothing that I could find
