I've had my decking down for a few years now, and I am yet to find a decent decking treatment that lasts more than a year or so. The ronseal products are absolute rubbish, and last time after a bit of research I tried liberon, which hasn't fared much better! We go through one winter and it's all faded/patchy/flaking off. Any recommendations?

Doubt you will find anything that fits the bill so try something cheaper more often. I've used Wilkinson's oil based and for the money its lasted no less than branded I would say.

If the decking is properly pressure treated, (so not cheap crap from typical DIY stores), then such treatments are doing little other than making it look nice, you can just let it weather.

Any clear or mostly clear finish is not going to last, a pigmented stain type product might last a few years on a deck, it is still going to have a short life given the exposure a deck surface creates.
