Does your deck need oiling? Test to find out!

To test your deck, simply sprinkle some water on the timber. If the water droplets sit up or bead for more than several minutes, then your timber is seeled and does not need oiling. If the water droplets are absorbed quickly into the timber, then it needs oiling.

 

The photo shows Warnett's Eucalyptus Hardwood decking oil and fence oil on Merbau timber. The recently oiled timber is resisting water and causing water to bead - the timber is seeled!
