Severely stained decks may need an additional treatment, more vigorous scrubbing or a power washer.

Hints: Cabot’s Deck Clean is not a paint remover, however it may remove some old and weathered coatings from timber.



Colour representations in brochures and websites should be used as a guide only for your colour selection due to printing and screen limitations. The actual colour achieved will be influenced by your timber type, tone, grain and application rate. To ensure you achieve the finish you want, we recommend that you test your colour choice at home prior to coating.
