This product is a great alternative to the vinyl decking which we didn't like as you can see the seams. So this goes on somewhat like paint- you mud and tape the seams of the plywood, sand, prime, paint on rubber coating, then paint on the colour of your choice. Seems easy- however it is not. I like the product- but it has been a hassle to do ourselves. Each coat needs the surface to be dry for 24 hrs before application, and at least 24-72 hours after application, which is very hard if you live in a rainy area- and it can't be over 30 degrees Celsius either. Also, after all is done you are supposed to stay off of the deck for 14 days- which sucks. Be very careful when mudding/sanding and make sure all dust/dirt is removed before priming and painting. You will see the seams or mud that hasn't been sanded well when you are finished and it won't look good! Make sure your T&G plywood is as perfect as you can find- the less damages to cover up the easier it is and better it will look. It's a great product- but maybe easier to hire someone to do it!
