Exterior Wood Decks

Surface Preparation

All surfaces must be cured, clean, sound, dry and free of all dirt, dust, efflorescence, wax, oil, grease, chalk and any other contamination that would interfere with new coating adhesion. For detailed wood deck preparation refer to our wood deck preparation technical bulletin. Performance will be directly related to the degree of surface preparation.
