Red Cedar Deck using Prato-Verde Pareo finishing oil (cherry)

We just finished our Red Cedar deck (June 2016) with prato-verde pareo finishing oil (cherry) and I would like to share our photos and our experience :)

Pros: easy application, beautiful rich color that dries quite quickly and low odor! As per instruction, it will be low maintenance so that's a huge bonus considering the size of our deck! ;)

Cons: you have between 12-18 hours to give a second coat or you have to lightly sand the surface. So grab a few friends, a few beers and pizza and have them help you! cost- pricey (but might be worth it)

All in all, so far, we love this oil and hope it will last us awhile. :) enjoy!

I have no other words, Wowww !!!

Indeed, Pareo requires little maintenance, light sanding with 80 grit to create a grip and reapply a layer according to the manufacturer's instructions about every two years on horizontal surfaces.

Thank you for your photos !!!
