    Just getting towards end of a decking project.

    Split level aprox 30 m2 deck area plus steps fascia etc., plus a 4 post supporting a 4m x 4m pitched roof.
    Adding another 10 m2 of wood surface area

    This is all with treated wood .... anybody any recommendation on what finish to apply to the deck, would then do pots and roof wood work in same finish.

    I'm assuming it's probably best to apply treatment before first use rather than when it starts to fade off treated colour.

    If you don't want it to "fade off treated colour" then a stain would seem to be the worst product you could use. I plan to use a clear Oil on my new decking when I get round to it, but this stuff doesn't really fade very fast as far as I can see, my fence was replaced this time last year and it's still the same colour as when it first went up.

    OK update to my Q.
    Will use decking oil, not stain.

    What is the best oil?

    I usually use Sikkens products, but see wildly different comments (binary opinions) on Cuprinol and Ronseal.

    I've been using cuprinol for the last few years and have not had a problem.
