Deck in Day

Updated: Nov 8, 2021

Just installed a new deck but don’t want to wait weeks to make use of it? Thanks to Cabot’s New Timber Prep system, you can have your deck ready for party season within a day! It’ll actively draw out the natural oils in just 15 minutes, allowing you to get on with the job of cleaning, coating and most importantly, using your deck in no time.

What you'll need:


Prepping your surface correctly is crucial when starting your timber coating journey. It allows the coating to apply much more smoothly and evenly.

For new bare timber you’ll need to draw out the tannins and natural oils from the surface. Wet the timber and then scrub with Cabot’s New Timber Prep. Follow up with Cabot’s Deck Clean following the instructions on the label for a squeaky-clean deck. Remove any excess water with a squeegee and let the timber dry for at least one hour.


Grab your flat paddle stirrer and stir through Cabot’s Aquadeck before and during use. Apply the coating generously along the length of each decking board using Cabot’s Deck Coat Applicator. Don’t forget to coat any exposed edges and the ends of every board.

Dry Time:

Leave your deck to dry for at least one hour before applying a second coat. Leave the second coat to dry for a few hours.
