Is it possible to restore a decking colour?

Decking will lose its colour and fade over time. But it is easy to restore colour if the deck with a new lick of paint and sealer to protect it… However, the selection of the paint matters:

  • Oil or paraffin paints are a favoured option if you don’t want the timber decks to absorb moisture
  • Paint using one that has UV blockers to preventing fading or loss of colour from your decks.
  • To protect your decking from wood-eating bugs, and bacteria, use paints laced with insecticides.

If you choose to restore the colour of your deck, ensure that use a stain-blocking oil or an alkyd primer before painting.

And when you apply a paint, use a paint roller or paint sprayer. Ensure you get an even coat while painting the decking.
