  • Annual cleaning and recoating of a clear migrating wood oil, will not only bring the deck back to life but will stop any water ingress getting into the fibre of the product and could cause durability issues if not addressed. New Zealand UV is very different from other counties and keeping the colour in the chosen product fibre is very difficult and will eventually fade to a silver-grey appearance.
  • If a proper maintenance schedule is followed and the deck is well looked after the deck should provide many years of great service
  • FSC certified for JSC products like Garapa, Iroko, Purpleheart, and Cumaru
