Do not begin until you have read and understand all instructions. Do not apply if rain is expected within 48 hours. In certain climates you may have to wait for a different time of year to do this. We recommend doing a small test area on your project to insure your satisfaction with color choice and appearance before proceeding with the entire job.
Clean the deck:
Sweep excess debris (dirt and leaves) off the deck. Clean the deck with Messmer’s Wood & Deck Cleaner (Part A), or another high quality wood cleaner of your choice, then rinse thoroughly with clean water.
Make sure the deck surface is clean, dry and in good condition. You may need to wait a few days for the wood to completely dry depending on weather conditions. Cover plants, grass, concrete, trim, and any other areas you don’t want stained.
Apply the Messmer’s UV plus Hardwood deck stain:
Stir product thoroughly. Make sure that all pigment is mixed evenly into the stain. Apply one coat of UV Plus for Hardwood Decks following label directions. Work with the grain. After 30 minutes, brush or roll out any excess product puddled or pooled on the surface of the deck. If excess product is not removed, sticky, shiny spots may remain on the surface.
Following label directions, dispose of waste including roller covers and brushes in a water filled container. Seal the container and dispose of it properly.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How long will the product last?
A: Typically UV Plus for Hardwood Decks needs to be reapplied every one to two years. The length of time will vary depending on the wood used, the way the deck is constructed, which direction it faces, and your local climate and sun intensity.
Q: How can I avoid shiny, sticky areas after application?
A: Be sure to wipe up any excess product about 30 minutes after application. UV Plus for Hardwood Decks is a high solids product, and if overapplied it will not just evaporate away. It is designed to be a penetrating finish and does not dry properly if overapplied to the surface.
Q: Why is it important to clean before applying Messmer’s UV Plus for Hardwood Decks to a wood deck?
A: If you apply UV Plus for Hardwood Decks to a dirty surface, the wood will turn dark and dingy. The oils and resins in the UV Plus for Hardwood Decks will entrap the dirt and make it impossible to clean. By cleaning the wood with a good quality wood cleaner like Messmer’s Wood and Deck Part A you are properly preparing the deck for staining.
All exterior surfaces collect dirt, dust and contaminants. It is necessary to clean them periodically to keep them looking good. We suggest using Messmer’s Wood and Deck Part A Wood Cleaner at least twice a year for periodic maintenance cleaning. For information on cleaning a deck, click here: Clean and Maintain a Wood Deck.
