  • Description
  • Instructions

Deckote Crack Filler is designed to fill cracks, screw holes and minor defects in plywood surfaces . DO NOT USE TO FILL PLYWOOD SEAM CRACKS, as seams need to taped to allow for expansion and contraction of the plywood.

Deckote filler is designed to fill a maximum of 1/8” depression per application.  If the defect is deeper, apply additional coats of Deckote Crack Filler and allow 24 hours drying time between coats.  

NEW PLYWOOD

We recommend exterior grade plywood that is placed on a generous slope away from the house structure to prevent any ponding of rainwater.  Use stainless steel or heavy galvanized screws or nails to secure the plywood to the stringers.

Fill cracks, screw holes and minor defects in the plywood surface with Deckote Crack Filler. DO NOT FILL PLYWOOD SEAM CRACKS, these need to taped to allow for expansion and contraction of the plywood. Deckote filler is designed to fill a maximum of 1/8” depression per application.  If the defect is deeper, apply additional coats of Deckote Crack Filler and allow 24 hours drying time between coats.  

Tape joints with Deckote Fibra Tape.  Tape flashings around posts and drip flashings at the perimeter of the deck.  To apply Deckote Fibra Tape, first apply a generous coat of Deckote Primer, then while the primer is still wet, embed the tape and smooth out any wrinkles, then brush Deckote Primer on top of those areas and let dry for at least 2 hours.

 Apply 1 coat of Deckote Primer over the entire surface allowing 4 hours of drying time @77F, followed by 1 coat of Deckote Basecoat (use regular base coat or Safe-T-Tred Basecoat if a more slip resistant finish is desired) allowing a 24 hour dry time.  Apply 1 coat of Deckote Color Coat and allow 24 hours to dry.  If you are putting outdoor furniture on the finished deck, allow a full cure of 7 days.

PREVIOUSLY PAINTED

Remove all loose paint, grease, dust and dirt. Prime all exposed plywood with Deckote Primer.  Apply 1 generous coat of Deckote Color Coat. If a more skid resistant finished is desired, apply a coat of Deckote Safe-T-Tred Basecoat prior to the application of the color coat.
