    Deck Oil

    It's time for my least favorite semi annual ritual. I need to strip and stain my deck.

    I would like to stain it with some type of deck oil. I'm looking for a product that can be reapplied without stripping.

    The closest thing I can find locally is Cabot Australian Timber Oil. If anyone has any other recommendations I would greatly appreciate it

    Ugh, I feel your pain. I solved my problem of having to strip and re-stain my deck every other spring by tearing out the deck and pouring a concrete patio and steps.

    The Southern California sun is relentless and we're freeway close so I get soot and dirt all year. Front and rear redwood deck get a power wash on Saturday morning, dry all day, and reoiled the next day about every other year. I've had good luck with Penofin. The power washer was a little Karcher K1700 for about $125 from Amazon. It's been great for stuff around the house.

    I wash it down about every 6 months, but I get about 18~24 months out of it before I decide I'm ready to reapply the oil.

    I need to do this if it would just stop raining already.

    Well once the deck is properly stained and sealed it will not accept anymore stain. It never wears off equally so if you don’t strip it part of the deck that is worn will accept stain and the rest of it will not and the part that the new stain is put on will peel faster.

    Decks are a pain in the ass to keep looking good and properly sealed.

    I may give this stuff a try:

    Reviews are all positive. It can be reapplied without the dreaded task of stripping.

    Just a quick question - do any of you have 2nd story decks? If so do you do the underside each time you re-stain/oil?

    You should NOT stain the underside of a deck.

    That essentially creates a seal that traps moisture in and won’t allow it to breath down/out of the wood, that’s a sure fire way to accelerate the life of your joists and rot your joists (unless the tops are properly covered/wrapped with grave vycor tape.

    Even if you wrapped the top with vycor tape it is recommended to NOT stain or paint the bottom.
