If you would like your new high density hardwood decking to weather naturally to a delicate silvery-gray patina, there is very little that needs to be done after installation; a single light coating of Penofin oil sealer (or similar product) is highly recommended to allow your new deck boards to properly acclimate to its new environment. After this initial coating, simply allow the weather and environmental conditions to naturally season your high density hardwood deck boards. Whether you have chosen Ipe decking, Cumaru decking or Garapa decking, bear in mind that each decking board has unique characteristics and each deck board (and portions of each board) will weather at different rates. The amount of direct and indirect sunlight, temperature, humidity, moisture and all other conditions of the micro-climate of your deck area will factor into the time and shading of your new deck.
