Refreshed our tired messy verandah

Our verandah, which is also our entry way, is exterior ply that had previously had outdoor carpet glued onto it. Pavemax has now made our entranceway look fresh and tidy. Easy to apply and looks great after the second coat!

  • How frequently should I plan to reapply for Aquamax Timber Stain, and what is its typical lifespan?
    Assuming thorough preparation and the timber is in good condition, applying two coats initially could provide protection for approximately 3 to 5 years. Consider applying a third coat of Aquamax in 2/3 years to enhance performance further. In some cases, we've observed instances where the stain remains effective for well over 6-8 years before requiring additional attention.
  • What surfaces can I use Aquamax Timber Stain on?
    Aquamax Timber Stain is suitable for use on rough-sawn, dressed, and softwood timbers like pine. It's ideal for exterior surfaces such as fences, gates, beams, trellis, and pergolas.
  • How do we treat moss, lichen and mould?
    For moss or lichen, it should be treated and left a few weeks before staining. Then prior to staining, remove dead material by scrapping, scrubbing or water blasting. If you are treating just a light mould problem, there is no need to wash off the treatment mix, providing the surface is clean. Ideally, it is best left on and painted over for long-term benefit, as it can help control regrowth. We recommend the use of Prepmax Timber Prep & Clean, we have also found the product called 30 Seconds ONE STEP (the green label) mixed with chlorine bleach (eg Janola) has the good success in treating mould, moss and lichen. Mix as follows: Water 4 parts (eg 4 litres) One Step (green label) 1 parts (eg 1 litre) Janola (or other chlorine bleach) ¼ part (eg 250 ml) ​ Note: Avoid using any cleaners that have sodium hydroxide (caustic soda) – if it is not washed off fully it will have a reaction with the linseed oil.
  • Gloss variation’s with Aquamax?
    Gloss variation’s can occur due to how much of the oil has been absorbed into the timber fibres. The situation 'evens out' to a low sheen finish over a period of time.
  • How far can we reduce the colours with Clear Base?
    A mixture of 10 litres of Clear Base mixed with 4 litres of Aquamax colour will still have good colour strength. We also have recorded instances of mixes of 10 litres of Clear Base to 3 litres of Brown Bean being applied to a house, and it is still performing as expected. A Clear Base/Rustic Oakwood mixture would not be able to be reduced as much as the Rustic Oakwood already has a reduced pigment level.
  • Can we use Aquamax on interior timber surfaces?
    Yes, it is a house-quality stain that can be used on interior, absorbent timber surfaces. Take care with items coming in contact with the newly stained surface until it is fully dried, as drying time is slower.
  • Can I use Aquamax on decks?
    No – we don’t recommend AQUAMAX to be used on decks; we recommend you use DECKMAX on decks. DECKMAX is designed for foot traffic.
  • How many coats of Aquamax Timber Stain should I apply?
    We recommend applying two coats of Aquamax Timber Stain for greater protection and opacity.
  • Can I apply Aquamax Timber Stain with a roller or brush?
    Yes, Aquamax Timber Stain can be applied using a brush, roller, or airless sprayer for your convenience.
  • How long does Aquamax Timber Stain take to dry?
    Aquamax Timber Stain is touch dry in approximately 90 minutes, with recoating possible the following day.
  • Is Aquamax Timber Stain suitable for previously stained surfaces?
    Yes, Aquamax Timber Stain can be used on previously stained surfaces, provided they are weathered and absorbent.
  • Can I use Aquamax Clear Base alone for exterior surfaces?
    Aquamax Clear Base is primarily used for diluting colours or as a primer for high-absorbency timber surfaces. It's not recommended for exterior use on its own due to lower durability compared to coloured options.
  • Does Aquamax Timber Stain offer UV protection?
    Yes, Aquamax Timber Stain contains UV-absorbing pigments, resulting in excellent durability and protection against UV rays.
  • What is the shelf life of Aquamax Timber Stain?
    Under normal conditions, full containers of Aquamax Timber Stain can be stored for several years away from direct sunlight and freezing temperatures.
  • Can I use Aquamax Timber Stain indoors?
    Aquamax Timber Stain is primarily formulated for exterior use but can also be used indoors on suitable timber surfaces.
  • How should I clean up after using Aquamax Timber Stain?
    Clean-up is easy with cold water for equipment. Linseed oil residue can be rinsed with warm, soapy water or laundry detergent.
  • When should I use PREPMAX?
    PREPMAX should be used before applying DECKMAX or any other coating. It's essential for preparing timber surfaces by cleaning and treating them effectively.
  • How do I apply PREPMAX?
    PREPMAX can be applied using a brush or broom. Ensure thorough coverage for effective cleaning and preparation.
  • How do I prepare timber surfaces before staining or coating?
    Use PREPMAX to clean, brighten, and treat mould on timber surfaces before staining or coating, ensuring optimal adhesion and longevity of the finish.
  • How long should I wait after using the Premax Timber Clean & Preparation product before applying Deckmax stain?
    After using the Prepmax Timber Clean & Preparation, wait until the timber surface is thoroughly rinsed with a low-medium pressure wash down. Ensure complete removal of the product. Allow the timber surface to dry completely before applying the Deckmax Decking Stain coating. For best results, perform the preparation and staining of timber surfaces in a location shielded from direct sunlight to prevent rapid evaporation, making application challenging on hot surfaces.
  • What surfaces can I use PREPMAX on?
    PREPMAX is suitable for use on new, weathered, greyed, stained, and mould-affected decking and timber surfaces, including outdoor furniture, weatherboards, pergolas, and fences.
  • How do I know if my timber needs cleaning and preparation before staining?
    It's generally recommended to clean and prepare timber surfaces before staining, especially if they are weathered, greyed, or have mould. If your timber has an existing coating, checking its condition is a good idea. If in doubt, performing a simple water droplet test can help determine if cleaning and preparation are necessary.
  • Can PREPMAX remove stubborn stains and mould?
    Yes, PREPMAX effectively removes dirt, mould, mildew, grease, oil, and other contaminants, assisting in restoring the natural beauty of timber surfaces.
  • Can I use Prepmax Timber Clean & Preparation on all types of timber?
    Prepmax Clean & Preparation is versatile and suitable for various timber types. However, it's crucial to consider specific recommendations for different timber conditions: New Pine: New decking timber should be weathered for eight weeks. If the surface is shiny (mill-glazed), sanding may be necessary to allow proper penetration of the Timber Clean & Preparation product. New Hardwoods: For hardwood timbers, we recommend weathering for 12 weeks. This helps remove oily tannins and opens the fibers to aid penetration. Rinsing with water several times during this period is beneficial. Weathered Pine & Hardwoods: If you aim to restore the natural wood grain, badly weathered and greyed timber may require sanding back to a clean, sound surface. Previously Stained and Oiled Timber: Clean and treat with PREPMAX. For a natural wood grain look, sanding back to bare timber may be necessary, followed by cleaning with PREPMAX. To remove paint or other coatings down to a bare surface, a combination of paint remover and sanding should be used, followed by PREPMAX. Note: Heavy water blasting is not recommended as it can "fluff" the timber surface. Instead, use a low to medium-pressure wash down and/or scrubbing for effective and gentle cleaning.
  • Can PREPMAX be used on previously stained timber?
    Yes, PREPMAX can be used on previously stained or oiled timber surfaces. It effectively cleans and treats the surface in preparation for recoating or refinishing.
  • How long should I wait before applying DECKMAX after using PREPMAX?
    After using PREPMAX, allow the timber surface to dry thoroughly before applying the coating. Follow label instructions for specific recommendations.
  • Can PREPMAX be used on new pine decking?
    Yes, new pine decking should be weathered for eight weeks before application. PREPMAX helps prepare the surface by cleaning and treating it for optimal coating adhesion.
  • Is PREPMAX suitable for hardwoods?
    Yes, PREPMAX is suitable for hardwoods, although it's recommended to weather them for 12 weeks before application to assist with removing oily tannins and enhancing penetration.
  • Can PREPMAX be used indoors?
    PREPMAX is primarily designed for exterior use on timber surfaces. However, it can be used indoors on suitable timber surfaces with proper ventilation.
  • Is PREPMAX environmentally friendly?
    Yes, PREPMAX is water-based and comes in eco-friendly bottles made from 100% NZ post-consumer recycled milk bottles.
  • How should I handle PREPMAX safely?
    Always wear personal protective equipment and avoid contact with vegetation, painted, or metal surfaces. Rinse immediately and thoroughly with water if contact occurs.
  • How should I clean the timber surface before applying the DECKMAX Decking Stain?
    The timber surface must be clean, dry, and free from dirt, mould, mildew, grease, oil, and other contaminants. Use PREPMAX Timber Clean & Prep for thorough preparation.
  • What surfaces can I use DECKMAX Decking Stain on?
    DECKMAX Decking Stain is suitable for use on pine and hardwood timber decks, outdoor furniture, fences, and houses.
  • What are the gloss variation’s with Deckmax?
    Gloss variations can occur due to how much of the stain has been absorbed into the timber fibres. The situation 'evens out' to a low sheen finish over a period of time.
  • Can we mix the Deckmax colours?
    Yes, colours are fully intermixable. We suggest you experiment with Test Pots to achieve the desired colour and test on an inconspicuous area before proceeding with the entire area.
  • What type of applicator should I use for the decking stain?
    For applying Deckmax decking stain, we recommend using a high-quality brush or applicator pad. Ensure application on a fine day and avoid applying if rain is expected within the next 24 hours or if the temperature drops below 10°C. Application on hot surfaces may pose challenges due to rapid evaporation. Before use, it's crucial to stir the stain thoroughly using a wide flat stirrer in a circulating "bottom to top" motion. To achieve optimal results, work with a good-quality brush or applicator pad during the staining process. Applying two coats is advised for greater durability and timber protection. When applying the stain, work along the entire length of the boards to prevent lapping joins. Thoroughly work the stain into any crevasses in the timber, applying only as much as the timber can readily absorb. Additionally, it's recommended to apply a full coat to the board ends and edges where feasible for comprehensive coverage.
  • How long should I wait before recoating with DECKMAX Decking Stain?
    The first coat must be touch dry and tack-free enough to walk on before recoating. Absorbent surfaces may be recoated after at least 2 hours, while overnight recoating is recommended for previously sealed or stained surfaces.
  • How long does it take for the decking stain to dry?
    The first coat of Deckmax should be touch dry and tack-free enough to walk on before applying additional coats. When using Deckmax on previously sealed or stained surfaces, especially on Hardwood timbers, it is advisable to allow an overnight interval between coats to prevent the first coat from softening during recoating. Absorbent surfaces like softwoods (Pine) or well-weathered timber may be recoated after a minimum of 2 hours, although this can vary depending on timber absorbency, temperature, and humidity. Drying & Curing Time: Deckmax continues to harden and toughen over several days. It is recommended to allow as much time as practical, ensuring a minimum of 24 hours before subjecting the surface to light foot traffic. On previously sealed or stained surfaces, especially on Hardwood timbers, the dry time may be longer. Drying and curing times are influenced by factors such as timber absorbency, temperature, and humidity.
  • How long does DECKMAX Decking Stain take to dry?
    Drying and curing times depend on timber absorbency, temperature, and humidity. Typically, allow as long as practical, with a minimum of 24 hours before light foot traffic.
  • What is the ideal application temperature for the DECKMAX Decking Stain?
    Applying DECKMAX on a fine day is recommended, avoiding application if rain is forecast within 24 hours or if the temperature is below 10°C.
  • Can I apply the Deckmax decking stain on a damp surface?
    It's generally recommended to apply the stain on a clean, dry surface for best results. Moisture on the deck can affect the adhesion and overall performance of the stain. Ensure the surface is thoroughly dry before application.
  • Do I need to strip the old stain before applying a new one?
    In some cases, it may be necessary to strip the old stain for better adhesion of the new one. However, Deckmax is designed to work well on properly prepared surfaces. See our Mastermax Prepmax Timer Clean & Preparation Refer to the product instructions on the Deckmax website page.
  • Does the decking stain provide UV protection?
    Deckmax's decking stain offers UV protection by using UV-resistant pigments in the "semi-transparent" colors. These pigments colours safeguard against UV damage while retaining the natural grain of the timber. This feature ensures that your deck maintains its integrity and appearance, even when exposed to prolonged sunlight.
  • How does DECKMAX Decking Stain differ from traditional stains?
    DECKMAX utilises a leading-edge oleoresinous/acrylic tribrid technology, providing the combined properties of timber penetration, film hardness for walk-on surfaces, and shorter touch dry time.
  • Can DECKMAX Decking Stain be applied on new pine decking?
    Yes, new decking timber should be weathered for eight weeks before application. Shiny (mill-glazed) machined timber surfaces should be sanded to allow penetration.
  • Can I use DECKMAX Decking Stain on previously stained or oiled timber?
    After proper preparation, DECKMAX can be used on previously stained or oiled timber. Refer to the instructions for detailed guidance.
  • How should I apply DECKMAX Decking Stain?
    Stir well before use and apply with a good-quality brush or applicator pad. Ensure thorough coverage, and consider applying two coats for greater durability and protection.

  • Is DECKMAX Decking Stain environmentally friendly?
    Yes, DECKMAX's innovative formulation allows for water clean-up. Dispose of leftover liquid responsibly and dry empty containers in a well-ventilated area.
  • Gloss variation’s with MULTIMAX?
    Some initial gloss/sheen variations may appear, but they will "even out" over time as the linseed oil cures, resulting in a low sheen finish.
  • Can I mix the colours?
    Yes, MULTIMAX colors are fully intermixable. We recommend experimenting with Test Pots to achieve the desired color and testing on an inconspicuous area before proceeding with the entire surface.
  • Can I use MULTIMAX for interior use?
    Yes, MULTIMAX is suitable for interior use on timber, concrete, and metal surfaces. However, when applying to gib-board surfaces, challenges may arise as the linseed oil can soak into the gib tape on plaster joints, potentially resulting in a flatter finish. To overcome this, it is recommended to let the first coat dry for a more uniformed finish. Additionally, applying MULTIMAX uniformly with an even application and maintaining a good wet edge is crucial for consistent sheen, as uneven application or touch-ups may produce different finishes once dry.
  • What about treating rust?
    Areas of white rust should be removed by hand or power wire brushing. Red rust spots must be treated with a rust killer product or primer, followed by the application of MULTIMAX. All rust treatments currently recommended for use under acrylic paints are suitable for use with MULTIMAX.
  • What sets MULTIMAX apart as an all-in-one finish coat, undercoat, and primer?

Be sure to check the product specifications on the Timbermax website page for any specific recommendations or considerations based on the type of timber you are working with.
  • Can Timbermax Deck & Timber Paint be applied over an existing stain or paint?
    Certainly! When painting over previously painted surfaces, it's essential to follow these steps for optimal results: Remove any flaking paint using a scraper, wire brush, and/or sand as necessary. Use appropriate tools such as a scraper, wire brush, or sandpaper to ensure the surface is free of loose or flaking paint. Fill nail holes, dents, and cracks with appropriate filler or sealant. Repair any imperfections in the surface by filling nail holes, dents, and cracks with a suitable filler or sealant. Ensure the surface is clean. Clean the surface thoroughly to remove any dust, debris, or contaminants that may affect the adhesion of the deck and timber Paint. Thoroughly sand glossy surfaces with 200-grit sandpaper prior to painting. For glossy surfaces, use 200-grit sandpaper to create a suitable texture for the paint to adhere to. When painting over an unknown coating or when changing products, apply to a small area to check compatibility. If the existing coating is unknown or when changing products, it's advisable to perform a compatibility test by applying the Timbermax Deck & Timber Paint to a small area. This ensures that the paint adheres well and achieves the desired finish. These steps will help you achieve a smooth and durable finish when applying Deck & Timber Paint over previously painted surfaces.
  • What is the recommended application method for Timbermax Deck & Timber Paint?
    Apply on a fine day. Avoid application if humidity is greater than 85%, dew or rainfall is likely within 4 hours, or the temperature is below 5°C. Choose optimal weather conditions for application to ensure proper drying and adhesion. Avoid high humidity, impending rain, or temperatures below 5°C. Stir well before use with a wide flat stirrer in a circulating “bottom to top” motion. Apply with a good-quality brush, roller, or airless spray. Thoroughly stir the Timbermax Deck & Timber Paint using a wide flat stirrer, ensuring a consistent mixture. Apply a high-quality brush, roller, or airless spray for even coverage. Two full-finish coats are recommended to provide further durability and protection to the surface. To enhance durability and protection, apply two full finish coats of Deck & Timber Paint. This ensures a long-lasting and resilient finish. To aid adhesion and to seal new, porous, weathered surfaces, a 10% water-thinned coat of TIMBERMAX as a primer is required, followed by two full finish coats. When dealing with new, porous, or weathered surfaces, use a 10% water-thinned coat of TIMBERMAX as a primer before applying two full finish coats of Deck & Timber Paint. This aids adhesion and seals the surface. Note: If the project requires more than one pail of the product (especially different batches), it is good practice to add some of the new pail to the last of the old pail during application to ensure colour uniformity. For projects requiring more than one pail, especially from different batches, blend some of the new product into the last of the old pail during application to ensure uniform colour across the entire project. This practice helps maintain consistent colour throughout the application.
