    Default Untreated decking in the rain

    Have just laid about 1/3 of my jarrah decking down and the rains have come. None of it has been oiled yet, how long can I leave it before I should worry about oiling it?

    Based on Jarrah being a hardwood, if it is off the ground there should not be any great issue leaving it 3 months. The sooner you oil it the better, but no big issue really.

    Also depends on the product you are going to use to oil the deck. e.g. some recommend at least 6 weeks weathering.
