    Decking Oil/Stain - what's the difference please?

    Can anyone advise me? Our new house has decking but looks in need of a bit of preservation (it's clean). Is it better to buy decking stain or decking oil please?

    the oil treats and preservs the wood, the stain colours the wood

    Thank you. We went for oil and then will stain after - not cheap though!

    Isn't that the wrong way round to do it?

    oh god knows, but I thought the oil killed moss and stuff and the stain was just to give it colour?
