Our top 5 most popular wood care products

With the hot weather sticking around and not going any time soon, we think it offers the perfect opportunity for those of you who haven’t managed to get out into the garden yet.

Whether you have a deck that has turned grey and needs a good clean, a shed that is peeling and needs repainting or perhaps some garden furniture that needs a little bit of TLC, we will have a product for you!


PredeckPrepdeck is a professional grade stripper & cleaner specifically designed for the removal of solid and semi-transparent stains, removal of mill glaze, unsightly wood stamps and other finishes from exterior wood.

It is ideal for use on fences, decking, garden furniture and more.

As Prepdeck is a high-grade stripper, you will need to use Net-Trol to neutralise the wood after you have used it. This is an important step and must be carried out as it stops the active ingredient in Prepdeck from continuing to work.

Prepdeck is available in 1, 2.5 & 10 litres sizes as well as a 100ml sample size


Net-trolNet-Trol is a powerful wood cleaner and brightener which restores greyed and weathered wood to its natural colour. It effortlessly removes surface and ground in dirt leaving the wood looking bright and vibrant.

Fast acting, it can restore the colour of your wood in as little as 15 mins!

One of the things we love about Net-Trol is that it is biodegradable and does not contain solvents or bleach. This means that it’s not harmful to plants and shrubs so it’s safe to use in the garden!

Net-Trol is available in 1, 2.5 & 15 litres sizes as well as a 100ml sample size


TextrolTextrol is a penetrating wood oil finish for exterior softwood and hardwood on both horizontal and vertical surfaces. This offers long-lasting protection from the effects of weathering and pollution.

Instead of hiding the natural beauty of the wood, Textrol enhances it.

Textrol is applied wet-on-wet, which saves time as you don’t need to wait for coats to dry during application and the maintenance is easy with local touch-ups and no laborious sanding required!

Textrol is available in 1, 2.5 & 20 litres sizes as well as a 100ml sample size

Decking Paint

Decking paintDecking Paint is a premium opaque paint finish suitable for use on new wood, weathered wood and even previously treated wood.

It provides long-lasting performance, even in high traffic areas like your garden decking and when applied correctly is guaranteed against peeling or flaking!*

The Decking Paint range is available in 35 stylish colours and is incredibly easy to use with just 2 coats needed in most cases. Maintenance is also easy; simply clean the effected area and repaint – no stripping or sanding required!

Decking Paint is available in 1, 2.5, 10 & 20 litres sizes as well as a 100ml sample size


AquadecksAquadecks is a penetrating water-based wood finish that leaves a long lasting, rich, matt finish for all woods, including exotic hardwoods.

It saturates and stabilises the wood from within, resulting in minimal cracking, warping and other damage caused by the weather.

Suitable for interior or exterior use and works perfectly on horizontal and vertical surfaces; such as decks, outdoor furniture or cladding and can be applied directly onto new or weathered wood.

Aquadecks is available in 1, 5 & 20 litres sizes as well as a 100ml sample size.

If none of these products are suitable for you, we have a very handy Product Finder function on our home page which can help assist you with finding the right Owatrol product for you and your project. Take a look and see what is the right solution for you.

*Owatrol International warrants Decking Paint against peeling on wood decks for 5 years and against cracking, peeling and flaking on wood cladding for 15 years from the date of purchase if it is applied on bare wood to a properly prepared surface according to label directions.

  1. Hello, I have a wooden front door that is at least 10 years old. When I bought the house, about six years ago, the previous owners left a jar of some kind of wax that was specifically for this door.
    Being a bit lax, I have washed down the door once a year and applied this wax.
    This last winter, the door started to stick at the bottom and I’m wondering if water has penetrated through the wax and the wood has swollen as a result.
    I’ve also noticed that the door has got rather bleached from the sun – visible when you open the door and see the much darker wood around the edges.
    I like this door very much and but recognise that I need to be more proactive to look after it properly.
    Do you please have any suggestions about things I could do / products I could use to bring it back up to par?!
    Many thanks, Cate

    1. Hi there Cate,

      We have a product called DSP800: https://www.owatroldirect.co.uk/product/dsp-800-multi-purpose-stripper/ that can be used to remove wax from wood flooring, so you could try a sample and test it in a small area first to see if it would work for you.

      Once you have removed the wax, you could use one of our exterior wood preservers: https://www.owatroldirect.co.uk/woodcare/exterior-wood-preserver/ to revive the colour and bring it back to its former glory. Some of our most popular wood protectors are Textrol, Deks Olje D1 and Aquadecks.

      It is paramount that any previous finishes are completely removed before application of any of our finishes. This is because they work by saturating deep into the wood and protecting it from within, therefore any previous finish left behind will create a barrier and so the finished result will not be satisfactory.

      I hope this was helpful.

      All the best,
      The Owatrol Team
