I have a beautiful deck that needs to be oiled every 4 months. This project was fun at first but after 3 years the novelty is wearing off. Any suggestions?
Location: Florida on the ocean
exposed to full sun and sea air (and heavy downpours).
Hardwood from Indonesia
Product used Deks Olje #1 Matt finish.
Awning/ large umbrellas not an option.
After research I thought Deks Olje would be best as conditions are similar to that of a yacht. Plus only light scrub with Scotch bright pad and soapy water is only prep needed, I'm trying to avoid sanding. I apply 3 coats for full saturation, but the elements are harsh and after 4 months it shows. A heavy duty epoxy is in mind but I don't know how that will wear, plus the danger of slipping when wet.
