Hi, we live in southern Indiana. We have a redwood deck that is 35 years old , and we are sanding with 40 grit sandpaper to remove all the old finish . I'm 65 years old and wife is 62 so we are not very fast we're in to our second week of sanding and may need another week to finish . The first wood we sanded has been rained on and is starting to lose it's red pinkish tint . What do we need to do after we finish sanded before we apply your 1500 product? We are thinking maybe the 1511 Cal. Red . Like I said we're kind of slow and don't know if we can get the second coat on before the first drys , should we try for two coats or put on one and then reapply next year? We do not want this peeling off like the last product we put on it which was Behr weather proofing wood finish. We are hoping to never have to sand again. Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated . Thanks ,Ken
Use the Gemini Restore Kit after the sanding for the final prep. Get some samples from site for colors.
If you cannot do the wet on wet application then just do one coat now and one coat next year only if needed. Best to have full penetration.
