Brizman Ultra Deck is an oil but it's water-based. This is where we were probably given the wrong advice. Should have gone for an oil. Thankyou Get Decked Out and My Dezign Exteriors.

Hi Josh

Thanks for the article. I am currently installing 2 floating blackbutt decks over white concrete in pool area and replacing current Merbau with Blackbutt on my Veranda. You mentioned a Silver Tint, can you tell me which product this comes in or do you add the tint yourself to the oil? I was planning to apply Aqua deck?? Also my vertical wire fencing for pool only comes in spotted gum, would you apply the silver tint on this also? I am wanting to try and keep the natural colour and have it grey off naturally. By the way, I have been inspired by one of your pool designs for fencing. You do fantastic work. Thanks in advance

What about red gum? It’s used extensively as a timber for wharves and jetties along the Murray. Lasts forever and is sustainably harvested, unlike some of the others you have listed.
