Quick How-To: Properly clean and prep your deck (see FAQs for prep instructions). Using a common paint roller, apply two coats of Encore and allow to dry. (Note: For the ultimate level of long-term performance, we highly recommend the use of Pretreat, a penetrating sealer and bonding agent specifically designed for Encore.) Depending on the condition of the wood and the application technique, the Encore kit will complete (2 coats) between 140 and 200 square feet of deck surface. Add one gallon of semi-gloss exterior acrylic paint of your color choice to this kit to achieve the perfect color.
If your deck is under trees that drop leaves that stain, consider applying one coat of SealBack Nano-Sealer to your Encore deck. Sealback's hydrophobic surface makes cleaning a breeze. Tannin stains wash off as well as dirt and grime. Sealback also provides another level of protection for your Encore surface.
Encore does not provide a "structural repair" solution for wood. Always replace boards that you consider in your best estimate to be structurally unfit for use.
