Blogger Project - A time-saving solution! RockSolid 6X Deck Coat applies thick and quick, in one coat, so you don't have to spend an entire weekend working on restoring your deck. Just prep the deck, roll it on and let it dry. It'll be ready to use the next day!
Clean: Clean the surface using a deck brush and RockSolid Deck & Patio Cleaner or standard deck cleaner. The surface must be clean and free of dirt, grease, mildew and organic growth. Scrape off any loose paint.
Prime: After the surface has been cleaned, wait 30 minutes to dry and remove any standing water, then apply one coat of the primer with a quality 3/8" nap roller or synthetic paint brush.
Apply: Using a 9” RockSolid 6X Roller cover, saturate the roller cover and apply generously back and forth. Work to a wet edge at all times. Avoid rolling back into coated areas where drying has begun. Coat 1 to 2 boards at a time. After coating 1-2 boards, use a putty knife or other straight edge to remove excess coating between boards. Difficult areas such as warped or cupped boards will require rolling across the narrow width of the board as well as the length to ensure complete coverage.
Dry: Allow 4-6 hours to dry to touch. Allow to dry 24 hours before light foot traffic and replacing furniture. If the surface is tacky or soft, extend the drying time before putting heavy objects back in place. Full cure to a hard finish will take approximately 7 days.
TIP: New and sealed wood decks need to weather for at least 6 months before application.
