    afternoon all,

    after instructing a mate to make good an area of decking over, he decided to use ply and after rainfall, its like an ice rink?!? :rolleyes:

    is there any sort of non-slip paint i can get to put over the top to stop being falling over? ideally i dont want to take up the whole lot and start again, but i just wanted to see what was a more cheaper option. ;)

    You Might try on a scrap piece of plywood a good paint with sand mixed in let it dry and give it the water test .
    If you like it , do the deck.

    Hi bud
    there are several products that you can buy to make the deck/ply non slip. You can get them from screwfix of BQ and they cost around £25 for 2.5l tin. They work. We use them alot
    Cheers

    Ensure it has been scrubbed clean & is bone dry before painting it too.

    Then the paint stuff wont flake off later.
