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

Found 15th Mar 2009
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?

One 'does exactly what it says on the tin' the other doesn't? :oops:
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?

no it isnt, you oil the wood, then stain in after a few days
