For wood deck, porch, or patio, refer to: Preparation of New or Weathered Wood

  1. Step 1

    Once your surface is clean, prepped and primed, apply the Porch & Patio Floor Paint. Stir the paint before applying. Apply a thin, even coat using a 3/8" (9.5 mm) nap roller, pad applicator, nylon-polyester brush or airless sprayer.

  2. Step 2

    Do not thin paint if using a roller and brush, However, if using a sprayer and thinning is required, thin with up to 1/2 pint (237 ml) of water per gallon of primer.  Heavy stains may require additional coats.

  3. Step 3

    Let the coating dry. Coating will dry to touch in 1 hour, but allow at least 4-6 hours before deciding if a second coat is necessary.

  4. Step 4

    Make sure that the surface is fully cured before use. Allow 72 hours for normal use and 4 weeks before rinsing or cleaning with a mild, non-abrasive, liquid detergent.
