For a longer lasting finish it is essential to remove dirt, dust and grease from the deck.

A Preclean De-greaser is best, clean and allow to dry for best results.

Masking Tape

Use Masking Tape on the edges for a clean finish.

Remember to use new masking tape with every coat as it can be difficult to remove it if it is left on for too long.

Deck Paint

Choose your colour and apply two coats. Deck paint includes anti-slip granules for grip.

If changing colour you may need more coats to hide the previous coat.
