Preparation

Decks
The surface must be clean, dry, and in good condition. Remove all mildew, dirt, dust, loose wood fibers, paint flakes, oil, and grease.* Repair or replace any loose, cracked or warped boards. Dual Resin Technology eliminates the need for priming the surface. All mildew (dark, fuzzy or powdery deposits) must be removed with ZAR® Deck, Fence and Wood Cleaner or the following solution: one-third-cup heavy-duty laundry detergent to 1 quart household bleach to 3 quarts of warm water. Wear protective eye goggles and waterproof gloves when handling the solution. Apply with a scrub brush. Rinse thoroughly and allow it to dry before staining.


Previously Painted or Stained Wood
Clean previously painted surfaces thoroughly. Remove all loose or flaking paint by scraping.* Sand glossy paint surfaces to improve adhesion.


Siding
The surface must be clean, dry, and in good condition. All mildew, dirt, dust, loose wood fibers, paint flakes, oil, and grease must be removed with ZAR® Deck, Fence and Wood Cleaner or the following solution: one-third-cup heavy-duty powdered laundry detergent to 1 quart household bleach to 3 quarts of warm water.* Wear protective goggles and waterproof gloves while applying the solution. Apply with a scrub brush. Rinse thoroughly and allow it to dry before staining. Repair or replace any loose, cracked or warped boards. In warm weather, hose the surface with water and apply ZAR® Solid Color Deck & Siding Stain while the surface is still damp to ensure color uniformity and minimize lap marks.

Application

Apply only when air and surface temperatures are above 50°F. Do not thin. Stir thoroughly before and during application. Do not apply to decks if rain is expected within 24 hours. When using 2 or more containers of the same color, mix them together to ensure color uniformity. Avoid applying in direct sunlight. ZAR® Solid Color Deck & Siding Stain can be sprayed, but application with a synthetic brush is recommended. On vertical siding, start at the top on several boards and apply continuously to the bottom. On horizontal siding, start at one corner on several boards and apply continuously across, breaking at doors, windows and corners. Be sure to maintain a wet edge. If spraying, this product may be reduced up to 10 percent with clean water. The coating should be dry brushed or back rolled for color uniformity. Apply 2 coats.

Maintenance
Areas with harsh exposure to sun, weather or foot traffic will show wear more quickly than other surfaces. If this occurs, clean the affected areas and recoat as necessary.

Disposal

Dispose of contaminated absorbent, container and unused contents in accordance with local, state and federal regulations.
