Our Decking Paint is a premium finish suitable for use on new wood, weathered wood and even previously treated wood. It is fortified with Owatrol’s Emulsa-Bond helping it to provide unsurpassed adhesion on both horizontal and vertical surfaces where competitors would require extensive preparation and priming whilst providing a rich matt finish perfect for decking.

The Decking Paint range has now been expanded and it is available in 35 stylish colours and is incredibly easy to use with just 2 coats needed in most cases. It provides long-lasting performance, even in high traffic areas like your garden decking and when applied correctly to bare wood is guaranteed against peeling or flaking for 5 years on horizontal surfaces such as decking and 15 years on vertical cladding and sidings (please see below for limited warranty specific details).

Ideal Uses for Owatrol’s Decking Paint

  • Giving your decking a new look – in any of the 35 stylish colours
  • Protecting decks previously treated with inferior products which have peeled or flaked
  • Long-lasting protection for outdoor wood furniture
  • Also suitable for fencing, cladding and other exterior wood surfaces


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 – this means that all previous coatings MUST be properly removed before applying Decking Paint or the adhesion could be compromised. Owatrol International will, at its option, replace the material or refund the purchase price if Decking Paint does not perform as described above. Please see the technical data for the full warranty.

Always read the Decking Paint Product Information before using and follow the instructions carefully.

Surface Preparation

New wood surfaces

Before using Decking Paint, all surfaces must be clean, dry and free of dirt, grease and mildew. However, in addition new wood also has a hard shiny surface known as mill glaze which prevents maximum penetration – preventing any coating from adhering properly. We would always recommend new wood is treated with Seasonite new wood protection and then allowed to weather for a minimum of 6 months after which time Decking Paint can be applied following the  instructions for weathered wood.

Weathered wood surfaces

Uncoated wood surfaces which have weathered for 6 months of more simply need a thorough cleaning to restore their original colour and remove any built-up dirt and grime before applying decking paint. To do this simply use Net-Trol wood cleaner which is scrubbed on, allowed to work and then rinsed off. Be sure to allow your wood to dry thoroughly for 48 hours afterwards before applying Decking Paint.

Previously coated surfaces

In this case, first sand or scrape to remove any loose, flaking or peeling finish (if there is any). If necessary, you should strip the surface with Dilunett Gel before cleaning and neutralising it with Net-Trol wood cleaner. Then allow 48 hours for the surface to dry before applying Decking Paint.

Application of Owatrol’s Decking Paint

Owatrol’s Decking Paint is easy to apply by following these simple instructions.

First apply a coat of Decking Paint avoiding heavy application. Be sure to work it into the grooves of the deck to ensure even protection. Next allow this coat to dry for 3-4 hours before applying a second coat. If applying by spray, always back-brush or back-roll immediately after application to ensure unformity of colour, coverage and penetration.


Surfaces with harsh exposure to weather or traffic will wear more quickly than other areas. In these cases, clean affected areas with Net-Trol and recoat as necessary.

Clean Up

Clean all tools and equipment with soap and water whilst still wet. If allowed to dry, remove with paint stripper.

NOTE: Rags soaked in this product should be soaked with water before disposing of with household waste.

Things to Remember

  • Before starting your project, test penetration and absorbency by sprinkling water lightly onto the wood. If the water is absorbed rapidly, surface is free of contamination and ready for staining. If water is repelled, thorough preparation, as for new wood must be performed.
  • Before starting application, test the colour choice on a small area and allow to dry to determine final colour.
  • Purchase sufficient product for the whole job and mix all product together before starting to avoid colour variances.
  • If applying with a sprayer it must be (.017-.021 tip at 1800-2000 psi (124-138 bars)
  • Cover everything you do not wish to coat, including plants and shrubs.
  • Apply between 10°C and 35°C.
  • Do not apply in direct sunlight, on hot surfaces.
  • Do not apply if cold and/or wet weather is expected within 48 hours.
  • Mix product thoroughly before and during application. Do not thin.
  • Always work the entire length of a deck board or horizontal siding to a logical break, such as a window or door frame.
  • Vertical siding should be coated from top to bottom.

    Spent ages trying to find good decking paint! Many just didn’t work. This is expensive but well worth it. Used three colours to create a beach theme effect.
    Lovely thick paint that dried very quickly. The only colour that needed more than one coat was the white.

    Insights from and insider.

    I’m a Designer and I have worked with the marketing and production of the other ‘deck paint’ products on offer at your local DIY centres.

    These big name brands promise, but only deliver in the short term.

    If you’ve spent the money on the construction, and spent time on the proper preparation, a word of advice…Don’t be cavalier with regard to the preservation and finish.

    This deck paint is only product that works. Genuinely. Quite literally, you pay for what you get.

    With Owatrol you get a professional job that will LAST!

    No marketing bullshit.

    I know from mistakes of using the products I’ve helped design that this is a costly and flaking-well infuriating.

    Stupidly, I fell under the marketing spell,read the copy on the product, saw the price and thought with proper prep, my job would be better…. it wasn’t!

    After using a well known, moderately priced product on a correctly prepared surface, it flaked after 1 season.

    I had to lift my deck up and paint the reverse, bare side of the timber to rescue my ruined deck.

    Using owatrol deck paint on the bare side of my flipped deck, Saved me a rebuild and therefore a lot of money – 3 years on it’s still perfect!

    Thank you Owatrol. No thanks commercial brands.

    Contrary to popular opinion, you can paint decking. It will last. Just use the right stuff!

    Last year’s project was a very old and tired area of decking by the house. I had used various stains/preservatives over the years, and was about to give up and have the area laid to patio at great expense. I then had the thought that perhaps I could paint the decking and stumbled on the Owatrol website.

    After speaking with Ken I gave it a go and am delighted with the result of using Decking Paint in the shade Light Green (unfortunately I don’t have any “before” images, but believe me it looked a mess!)

    Will be using the lockdown period to attack another area of decking, this time using Textrol – can only hope the result will be as impressive!

    Bought this to paint the threshold of the front door, which gets a lot of wear and tear as there are four flats and seven people in the house. I stripped the threshold back to bare wood and sanded it thoroughly, which took ages, and painted this stuff on, which didn’t. It covers extremely well and is very quick and easy to apply, although it is very runny as it is apparently actually a coloured stain mixed with some magic formula to make it adhere better and give it opacity, so care is needed to prevent drips.
    I applied two coats as per the instructions and got a good solid, opaque finish which appears to be holding up very well.
    The service from this company is great, (I have used a couple of their other products as well as this). When I phoned up for advice the person I spoke to was friendly and very helpful and the product was delivered very quickly.

    I have to say that decking paint was of great quality and covered extremely well. Decking looks great,but at £90 + per tin it does make you think about buying another one for a second coat.

      Hi John,

      Thank you for your kind words regarding Decking Paint – we are glad you had a good experience using it.
      Both our 1 liter and 2.5 liter tins are under £90 so it really does depend on how much you need for your project.
      With Owatrol products you can be assured of the highest quality finish and protection.
      We are so confident of the quality of Decking Paint that Owatrol International warrants against peeling on wood decks for 5 years and against cracking, peeling and flaking on wood cladding for 15 years.

      Thanks again for choosing Owatrol.

    I wasn’t sure which colour was right for the job. In the end I sent for 2 sample pots. Both were received after being informed when they had been despatched and kept aware of their progress. Consequently I was able to make the right choice. A great service.

    I used an excellent American latex decking product Ace Wood Royal for many years but could no longer find a supplier in the UK.

    This is every bit as good – it is standing up very well to wear and tear and the unbelievable heat we have been having over the last few weeks.

    My decking has been getting so hot it is impossible to walk on it barefoot ! Paint seems totally un-affected.

    I searched online for an alternative to the usual decking paints you can purchase from the major DIY stores, and found a recommendation for Owatrol.
    I’ve just applied it to my decking, and first impressions are that it is a very good product. The coverage is even and the finish looks great.
    It’s not a cheap option, but if it still looks good and hasn’t peeled or cracked after 5 years it will be well worth the investment.

    I purchased this after reading all reviews and have not been disappointed. By the third sample pot I decided on the colour Ivory for painting my decking / verandah on the front of my caravan. I am really pleased with the result. It looks so much better. I did two coats after cleaning and sanding bare wood, it went on so easily and dried quite quickly. It remains to be seen how long it lasts but I have high hopes! I’m a Happy customer.

    Blue decking paint brighter colour than it appeared online, but still good. Easy to apply with brush or roller. We had already used a 2.5 litre tin and this 1 litre tin was a top-up. However, the tin was soft packed, using bubble wrap and bags and was damaged (in transit?) to the extent that the lid had come off and 2/3 of the contents had filled the packing, but had not got to the outside of the bag. We reported this to Owatrol with photos and the response was excellent – a new 2.5 litre tin (very well packaged) arrived within 2 days.
    So overall, excellent product and customer service, but Owatrol needs to review how they package smaller tins – should be in a box with the tin lid properly secured.

    I am so pleased to say how excellent the fence paint is. The coverage is fantastic and the colour suits our forest school area. We were fortunate to be donated some paint for our developing forest school area. We are a small special needs school and the area looks amazing for our children.

    Found this product after searching the internet for the best product to use on my old decking. Used the Sea Blue colour. Only needed 2 coats and now looks very smart. Covered well and dried very quickly so did not have to worry about rain too much. Everyone who has seen it is very impressed. Would definitely recommend.

    I LOVE these products, I first came across them living for nearly 15 years in Sweden from 1999. I was introduced to them by the local paint store and used the Swedish Red on all my out houses and sheds, others painted once every other year, I painted once and left in 2014 – the sheds looked great still.

    I also did the wooden parts of the house and used once the E-B solution primer added to some masonry paint I had and wanted to use on wood paneling, it was a great success.

    Now back in the West Country I have bought a timber building – originally Swedish 1950’s , painted first with a cream paint which obviously lasted long. I found out it was believed to be Owatrol! Then the buildings were painted with a brown yukky stain – which has stayed on all this time being replenished from time to time. I wanted to paint it and had one can of Slate Blue solid colour – YIPPEE it’s the perfect colour to do my house. I found a small independent paint store about 30 mins away and hey presto they had some cans OF …………….. SLATE BLUE!
    I’ve started June 2017 – BUT I know I won’t have enough so will have to perhaps decide to paint one of the gable end walls with another colour UNLESS I can find some slate blue ???????
    Is there any anywhere? I’ve searched the internet high and low through many pages, tried ebay, marketplace and preloved sites….. I’m happy with half cans too and will pay courier charges.

    Failing that does anyone have any idea what is the closest colour to the Slate Blue 303 – so I could maybe use that on my end walls instead?

    Looking forward to a positive response 🙂

      Hi there!

      It’s great that you’re such a fan of Owatrol products and you certainly seem to be working hard to keep using them – I’m pleased to say we can definitely be of help here. Slate Blue – 303 has not been discontinued, it is just now called ‘Blue’ but is the same 303 we have just changed the name as we have adapted the colour range of our 3 opaque finished to be the same. You can purchase ‘Blue’ in Solid Colour Stain, Shed & Fence Paint or Decking Paint and they should all be the same colour as the ‘Slate Blue’ you have already. If you’re uncertain we’d recommend purchasing a sample pot first.

      Hope this helps,

    Really good coverage and appears non-slip at present, which was a big issue previously. My decorator also did his research and came up with this product. The aged grey looks good and has really lightened up the area. Only issue is that the decking literally drank the paint up so we had to order double the recommended amount. Would definitely use this again. Also, extremely good service and communications

    Used this after dissapointment with both wicks own brand followed later by “does’nt do what it says on the tin”
    I had put 6 coats of the wicks on to bare decking and it lasted less than 18 months and the actual cuprinol colour was so far away from the advertised colour on the tin that I took it off again next day……its application suggested a similar quality to wicks stuff. Got on internet and found a guy who lays decking for a living and reccomended your product.
    Difference in quality is obvious, you can feel the adhesion as you brush it on……bare wood application again…. two coats were fine and it took a wee while longer to dry as some of my decked area is enclosed and out of the sun.
    So save yourself time and hastle and get what I consider by far the best decking paint I,ve found….you may even save money in the long run if like me you have tried other products which are not effective. Cannot comment on durability yet but quietly confident

      Hi Sue,

      Unfortunately you will need to remove the previous paint as otherwise the Decking Paint will be adhering to the old finish rather than the wood and so will only be as good as that finish in terms of adherence (which seems like it has been disappointing). You would need to remove the old finish with a suitable stripper (we’d recommend trying a sample of Dilunett) to take it back to bare wood so that the Decking Paint can adhere to the wood.

    Purchased the decking paint and Netrol cleaner, quick speedy delivery and great website

    Will i need to use anything to treat the decking before painting?

    We laid the decking over 18months ago and its not been treated or painted and has weathered over time

    • Owatrol Team

      Owatrol Team

      Hi Jade,

      If your decking is untreated you’ll just need to clean it with Net-Trol and then wait for it to dry fully before applying Decking Paint. You don’t need to treat it with anything else as Decking Paint itself provides the moisture and UV protection for your wood.

    Really pleased with the excellent service received from Owatrol regarding delivery of samples and my order which arrived next day. The application of the decking paint was easy with a brush and gave excellent coverage after two coats. All of the colours suited our needs but we chose green which looks really smart and complements our newly laid artificial lawn. Very satisfied with the product and service provided by Owatrol……not cheap but if it lasts five years as claimed then it represents a good investment.

    Very helpful team supporting products. Found stripping previous decking oil coats frustrating and very time consuming, requiring repeat treatments of Dilunett, Aquanett and Nettrol and eventually I resorted to sanding the last vestiges. These strippers though, as claimed, seemed non toxic to the pondlife nearby. Painting was therefore a simple operation, colour a little lighter than anticipated so should have bought a sample pot first. Time will tell as to whether the paint is as dusrable as is claimed but looks very nice freshly painted, though none of the products are cheap. Delivery very efficient.

      Hi Paul,

      Unfortunately you can’t apply Decking Paint on top of another stain as we can’t guarantee the adherence of that previous coating and the Decking Paint would be adhering to that rather than the wood itself. To use Decking Paint (or any of our other finishes) you would first need to strip your existing stain using Dilunett or another brand of wood strippers.

    Before I painted my newly installed deck I did a little unscientific trial. I had my builder leave me a decking plank and painted it with one coat , I placed it on the gravel by the door and walked on it each time I went in and out of the house. The paint held up well no scuffing or signs of damage to the surface. Because I have dogs I wanted to seee how it would hold up with their claws running over it. I turned the plank paint side down on the gravel and again walked over it every time I went in and out for a week. I was amazed to find little or no damage to the painted surface. It did get grubby but that’s hardly suprising. It was just a case of going over the plank with a mop and it came up like new. I was pleased with the results of my test and went ahead and painted the deck. The paint goes on easily and it gives good coverage. We tried a new household roller but found it didn’t get into the grooves of the decking . My wife persevered with a soft brush to complete the job. We let it dry for a couple of days before applying the second coat. For the second. Coat we purchased a thick piled decking roller, this made the second application a very easy quick job. One of the things I love about this paint is the clean up is so easy , how such a tough paint can be cleaned with just water is suprising.
    The paint has been down a couple of weeks and with constant daily traffic it hasn’t had any detrimental affect on the Finnish. The paint has a five year life , judging by my initial tests and how it has stood up to daily traffic and three dogs I am both pleased and confident I picked the right paint for the job. I know how the paint stands up on a horizontal surface as I have used it on cladding, I am now confident this is going to stand the test of time. I highly recommend this treatment for decking it’s the best there is having spent pounds on many products that just don’t work it’s a money saver in the long run.

    The decking paint is very easy to apply and creates a great smooth matt finish. Do take note of the advice that there should be every expectation of dry conditions for 48 hours after application as we were unfortunate to have rain soon after application on one section of deck and we were left with white vein lines.

    If you follow the advice you will be more than happy with the finished surface and it has certainly given our deck a premium finish and a new lease of life.

    I have used the black on my summer house cladding this paint is amazing it’s been on the cladding for three years now no fading peeling it still looks like it was painted yesterday. I am about to order the paint for my newly laid decking , in the past I have tried oils Cuprinol ronseal none of the work on decking they look terrible after one winter , I know this product is expensive compared to other decking paints but the others don’t work and your decking looks awful in no time. If this works on deck flooring as well as it does on my summer house it will be worth every penny . I was advised by the company if it’s a heavy traffic area apply two coats , so more expense but if it looks good after two years it would be worth it.five years would make it very affordable .

    I ordered 2 sample pots of the Decking Paint due to not being able to decide on a colour. After prepping a small area of decking that is around a garden (Cleaning/Sanding it down)We placed the decking paint on and could not believe how smooth this went on and how good the coverage was from this small trial pot.
    Unfortunately both colours were not what we were looking for and with us not painting the whole large decking area in the garden we have used cuprinol decking paint to do the small area’s we wanted to do, as they had the right colour but trust me, if you are wanting to paint your whole decking do not go for the cheaper brands as this is the best we have used and I would highly recommend this Decking Paint. It may be expensive but you get what you pay for and it is as good as they say it is. If unsure try the trial pot first, I will be surprised if I read any reviews that say anything bad, just be sure to prep fully first.

      Hi Graham,
      This can indeed be used on spindles and handrails as long as it is bare wood (the same applies to the deck itself). If you have previously used a different coating on them then you will need to strip it using Dilunett and then neutralise with Net-Trol. Alternatively if they haven’t been coated before then you’ll just need to clean with Net-Trol and allow to dry before applying the decking paint (same applied for the deck).

I looked into it and found a link from a forum which led me to owatrol, after reading on your website what was entailed i proposed several options and in the end we opted for the owatrol products. After stripping and treating with netol , I painted the decking.

    We are both delighted with the results, probably should have purchased 15L as it will need another coat, so towards the end of summer we will apply another coat. Yes its expensive but the finish is professional and unique, time will tell how well the paint lasts, but for now we are truly delighted. Great service aswell.

    We used Ronseal decking paint before which is akin to using cold tea and about as effective. It used to peel within weeks of going on. We decided to try something new as it couldn’t be any worse that what we had used before. Although expensive it does the job 1000% more effectively. Really pleased with the result and hopefully repainting the decking will become an every 5 year job rather than an annual one as has been the case thus far.

      Hi Andy,
      This really depends on the look you are going for. Our suggestions would be Grey or Aged Grey for a subtle look that stands out from the crowd, or perhaps Dark Brown to set it off against the magnolia? You could even go for Light Green or Racing Green for something a little different?
      Many thanks,
