deck primer


Deck paint this spring

SPRING TIME = DECK TIME

Well it’s almost that time of the year again. The snow and ice will be melting off your decks and for many of you so will your deck coatings. So you have a choice, do the same thing you do every year, strip and repaint or just repaint or reseal with that same clear sealer. All of which doesn’t work. So why not try something different?

ArmorGarage’s Renew It Coating is not a paint, stain or sealer. It’s a super thick cementitious coating that will stick to your concrete or wood decks like glue and stay looking new for many years. Off the shelf paints, stains and sealers are just not hearty enough to last as long as you want and need them to.

So strip off whatever you have on your deck now or should we say strip off whatever is left of whatever you have on your deck now. Then apply our deck primer and let that dry. Next apply two thick coats of Renew It with our special rollers and see how beautiful your deck can look and stay looking that way.

The key to good results is to clean your deck really good, you want the primer going directly on and into the deck surface. Then make sure the temperature will be above 50 degrees for the next 72 hours and no rain for the next 24 hours. Then roll on one coat and let dry for about 4 hours till hard to the touch. Then roll on the second coat. Don’t try to stretch it out, Renew It goes on really thick. That’s how in fills in cracks and holes. So it coats and repairs your deck surface at the same time. You should have approximately an 1/8” costing on the surface. Any rotted boards should be replaced. You should replace them with untreated boards and give them a rough sanding prior to priming.

So give Renew It a try and take next spring off from deck chores!


Ordering Renew-It Deck Coating

Renew It Deck coating

During spring and summer the back order time for our Renew It Deck coating can go out as far as two weeks plus shipping time. So if you’re tired of stripping and repainting your deck every year don’t wait till the week you want to tackle this project. Once you made the decision to do this awful job one more time order the product as soon as possible to avoid delays. The product is good for a year or more.

Ordering early allows you to take your time to prepare the deck properly. This is the most important step in doing the job right. Getting all the other products you’ve tried that are still on the deck in some sort of way completely off is a must.

Order enough of our deck cleaner to get the job done. Then you need to order the deck primer which will soak into the wood and lock in. The only thing left to do now is pick a color and order enough of the deck coating to be sure you don’t run out. Keep in mind that older wood with lots of cracks will soak up material much more than you can imagine.

Our Renew It Deck coating uses raw aggregate materials that are natural products, natural products come in different shades. Just picture marble or stone, they all are a little different, even material from the same cut. So each batch of Renew It can be shaded slightly different. Ordering a sufficient amount easily avoids this problem.  Also don’t forget to order enough Renew It rollers. Applying the Renew It Deck coating with regular rollers will not work and voids the warranty.

In sum order Renew It as early as possible. Sometimes if you order in November and December we offer discounts on larger quantities. We don’t ship Renew It during January and February when temperatures are extremely low. The product is subject to freeze damage in transit during very cold weather. If you order during winter months in preparation for a spring job just make sure you store the product where it won’t freeze. Order the right quantity with enough cleaner, primers and rollers to get the job done right. You’ll thank yourself for doing this next year when all you have to do is put out the furniture and relax!
