    How do I maintain my deck to ensure the longevity of this product?

    During the winter, keep your deck clear of snow. When removing the snow from your deck, remember to use a plastic shovel. When cleaning your deck, do not use a pressure washer. Use a hose and dish soap to clean your coated surface.

    What if I’m not hitting the coverage rates?

    Ensure buckets are stored out of the sunlight and product is milkshake consistency during application. If done in direct sunlight in the middle of day, or in higher temperature applications, it may be necessary to add water to keep the consistency of the mixed product uniform.  Add 2 oz. of cool, clean water at a time and re-mix with the drill mixer before use.  NEVER EXCEED 6 oz. of additional water.  Ensure uncoated wood surface is dampened and stays damp during application (do not dampen surface if you have primed your deck using RockSolid® Deck Start Wood Primer).
