Restoring and protecting an ageing deck

The weather might not be showing it, but it is officially spring. With a bit of luck, we’ll all be enjoying a lovely summer spent sunning ourselves in the garden. For a lot of us though, the typical British weather that we have been ‘enjoying’ has battered and weathered our decking and fencing.

Owatrol UK have been providing a range of wood care products to professional gardeners and landscapers for many years. With summer fast approaching, we’d like to remind you of the fantastic results that can be achieved with Owatrol

Today we’re going to show you a real example of a customer who used Owatrol wood care products. The combination brought their decking, which had been left untreated for 2 years, back to life.

The job in hand was to bring back some glamour so that the owners could enjoy the setting.

Which products did they use?

Using Net-Trol Wood Cleaner & Colour Restorer the customer was able to remove all of the greying grime that had built up on the surface of the wood. This made the untreated wood look as good as the day it was installed.


To make sure that the customer didn’t need to do the same thing again in another 2 years, they were looking to treat and protect the wood with a finish that would be both aesthetically pleasing but also long-lasting.

For this we suggested Textrol oil as the right solution – they wanted to add some extra vibrancy and so they chose the Cedar tone.

Our customer was delighted with the results and were able to get back to what really matters; enjoying the brief but beautiful British summer with family and friends. Except now they could do it in a perfect outdoor living space that they could be proud of.

  1. I have used neetrol on my greyed decking and it did not look anywhere near as new looking as this customer!

    1. Hi Matthew,

      Thanks for trying the product.

      Did you follow the directions for use? It’s a good idea to really scrub it in, then leave it on for a bit as it continues to work before washing it off. You can always do it a second time if you’re really not happy with the results – but that shouldn’t be necessary.

      We’ve got a video of Net-trol is action on the product page, if you’re interested:


  2. its quite clear from these pictures that this is falsified, picture 1 completely grey-scaled image manipulated, image two partial greying, image three actual colour. These pictures do not show actual process.

    1. Hi Jon,
      Thank you for your interest, we can assure you that these photographs have not been falsified or doctored in any way. We have many case studies which show the same process with our products including many from independent professionals such as Roger from R and A Pressure Washing. If you’re still concerned please take a look at his website.
      Many thanks,
      The Owatrol Team
