Where to Use
Recommended for properly prepared interior and exterior weathered or cracked horizontal and vertical wood and composite surfaces such as Decks, Railings, Porches and Boat Docks. Also great for concrete surfaces such as Pool Decks, Patios and Sidewalks. Do not use on drivable surfaces such as garage floors.
Proper surface preparation is required.
Exterior Wood Surfaces: Replace rotting or unstable boards and remove loose splinters.
- For failing coatings or to remove loose wood fibers, use a product such as BEHR PREMIUM® No. 64 Wood Stain & Finish Stripper followed by BEHR PREMIUM® No. 63 All-In-One Wood Cleaner to neutralize the wood.
- When No. 64 is not needed, a product such as No. 63 MUST be used to remove mill glaze and clean the wood surface.
- After using either No. 64 or No. 63, rinse thoroughly with a garden hose or pressure washer.
- When rinsing with a pressure washer, use the broadest spray pattern while keeping the nozzle at least 24" away from the surface. Allow area to dry at least 24 hours before coating. Lightly sand to remove remaining wood fibers/fuzz.
Concrete Surfaces: Avoid areas that are structurally weak or subject to hydrostatic pressure above 8 psi.
- Allow new surfaces to cure for 30 days.
- Use a stripper product to strip peeling coating.
- Use an etcher product to clean and etch uncoated concrete or No. 990 Concrete & Masonry Degreaser & Cleaner on sound, coated surfaces prior to coating.
- Use product when air and surface temperatures are between 50-90˚ F (10-32˚ C).
- Avoid applying in direct sunlight or to hot surfaces. Do not use if rain is expected within 24 hours. The surface must be completely dry before application.
- Avoid painting if humidity is expected to be greater than 80%.
- Intermix multiple containers to ensure color uniformity. Stir product occasionally throughout application.
- DO NOT THIN PRODUCT. For nail holes and cracks up to 1/4", completely fill in with Textured DECKOVER® coating using a nylon/polyester brush and allow to dry prior to rolling.
- Deep nail holes and cracks may require additional filling.
- For edges, corners and in between wood boards, apply using a nylon/polyester brush.
- Use pressure while rolling and apply a generous, even coat using a 1/2" nap roller.
- For a smoother texture, use a brush or thinner nap roller (i.e. 1/4").
- For vertical surfaces such as railings, use a nylon/polyester brush or roller and apply two thin coats at a spread rate of 400 sq. ft. per gallon.
- Do not use with airless sprayer.
- For optimum performance, film uniformity, leveling and to cover cracks, a second coat MUST be applied.
- Maintain a wet edge when applying.
- 4-6 hours before recoat. Dries to touch in 4 hours.
- Wait 24-48 hours before light foot traffic. 72 hours to full cure.
- Additional dry time may be needed in cooler temperatures and higher humidity.
- Premature heavy traffic will cause coating failure.
- For disposal of empty containers and unused product, contact your household refuse collection service.
