    Black spots on spotted gum

    published

    The black spots are caused by iron contamination. Google iron contamination to find out how this occurs in timber. Iron contamination reacts when subjected to water. I have seen these black spots in brand new timber. You would have to clean the timber with oxalic acids to rectify the problem. I found the people from Deck Doc very helpful in explaining my problem with black spots appearing in my deck. After cleaning them off I am satisfied with the product as it maintains the timbers natural colour. I just clean & oil once a year

    Proper Protection for My Outdoor Furniture.

    published

    Deck-Doc the timber oil protection, very happy with the results for this product. It was easy to apply and my outdoor furniture came up a treat.
    Whew, I am very pleased that my expensive outdoor furniture looks good and is well protected.
    I was pleased with the exta mile Rob and Rinda went to, explaining exactly what I had to do, and they were very patient with my pesty questions.
    Glad to know you can get a good quality product and sold to you by people who really know what they are talking about.

    Do not use!!! Waste of money!

    This product doesn't dry (remains sticky) goes mouldy and black plus is sold by a husband and wife with the worst customer service I have ever come across! You will read multiple reviews with similar outcomes and we've since spoken to many specialists in the area who shake their head at deck doc's products (we just wish we'd had this advice before trying to support local!) our new deck required a full professional sand and a completely different product. You've been warned DON'T BUY OR USE DECK DOC!!! (PS - they'll try and blame helicopters or trains for the flaws in their product - the only helicopters or trains near our home come out of our children's toy box!)

    I have been using Deck Doc on my deck and fence for three years now. The first time I used it my deck when sticky, I called to complain. They explained how to use there oil. I have been using it for three years and it great I have just cleaned and re-oiled me deck and it looks like a new deck again.

    Did not cope in the Queensland sun

    published

    Spent 3 weeks sanding back our timber deck as per instructions. When first applied the timber looked fantastic. Water even beaded on the timber like a polished car. Within 6 months the timber exposed to sun went black. No other decking oil had ever done that. Very expensive for poor result. The best thing was the website marketing which sucked me in. I honestly believe decking oil is like engine oil. As long as you re-apply every 6 months with a light coat the timber will last.

    Worst product ever

    published

    Waste of money! Applied to a very expensive new deck to the instructions and within 3 weeks looks like my deck is 10 years old and never treated! Can't cope under direct sunlight and tacky if you put too much on the railing! Initially looked fantastic but within 2 weeks started to dull by week three looked like it has never been treated and a old deck. Really disappointed
    Guy was nice we bought it off quick delivery

    This stuff is rubbish

    published

    We used Deck Doc - the website purported that this product did it all. How wrong it was. In less than 3 months our deck was grey and awful. We followed the instructions carefully and have just spent the whole of our Easter weekend sanding and spent more than $500.00 to fix. Never again!!! Must be a reason the big chains don't stock it. Be very careful - we felt misled by their website.

    Didn't stand up to the harsh Australian climate at all!!!!

    no good - don/t touch it!

    published

    Have applied this 4 times in 3 years as per the DVD. Goes black within 6 weeks. It's a waste of money and more importantly. The supplier no longer stocks due to the high number of complaints. It's a pity because I was trying to support a locally made Australian product and company.

    Did the covered area retain colour and did the exposed area turn grey in time?

    I don't think I would bother with a product that requires this much trouble, just does not seem worth it to me if that is what a bit much does!!!!!

    We have applied two coats of dec doc in last 12 mths to our new red iron bark deck. The deck is now black and when i guerney a small patch the original red timber returns. Have I coated the area too thickly and will continuing with the guerney ruin the timber? Also the timber has stopped beading when water is applied. Please help.

    I would suggest you contact Deck Doc directly on their phone number listed on the website. I found them extremely helpful with my queries.
