Question

deck painting


I have a very weathered timber deck which oozes resin in hot weather (now)
i have given it 2 coats of Ronseal decking sealer but the resin still oozes. Can i paint over the sealer ? What should i use? I want to maintain the original wood colour if possible or make it a lighter colour to reflect the heat.

The wood is probably pine. Yes, you can paint over the sealer, the best deck paint I have found thus far is Ben Moores. Their deck paint has been modified with epoxy, and holds up very well.

I would second that on the Ben Moore.
But I would probably prime it with BIN first.

I'm not sure what 'epoxy' is anymore. Epoxy used to appy to anything that comes in two parts that needed to be mixed together. Later, epoxy was seperated from polyesters (two part resins). Now I'm seeing epoxy as an air dry product.
Epoxies were originally developed as glues and don't have any problems sticking to most surfaces.
I work for 7 BenMoore stores but not as a painter, you may want to check on the primer. Technically speaking, you shouldn't need any and it could foul things up.
Pro knows his stuff and I'm guessing that he is correct. I'm putting this on my To Do list out of my own curosity.
