Ronseal Decking End Grain Protector
Decking end grain, if left unprotected, will allow water to soak in – leading to rot and decay. Our Decking End Grain Protector is highly waterproof helping to lock out the water. And what’s great, it can be painted over with our stain or oil. So your deck will look great and stay healthy for longer.
Before You Start
Make sure it’s a warm, dry day (above 10°C and not going to rain). The wood must be clean and dry, this’ll make sure the Protector soaks in.
Using Your Decking End Grain Protector
First, give the tin a good stir and keep stirring it as you use it. Get loads of Protector on your brush and coat the deck ends. If you get any on the top of the boards, wipe it off with a cloth. Once it’s dry you can put on the second coat, you’ll need to do this within 4 hours. Leave it to dry for another 4 hours before you stain or oil over it.
Take as much protector as possible off your brush and then clean it in warm, soapy water. Don’t empty any leftover protector into drains or watercourses. Your local authority may have special ways to get rid of waste product.
