Why is my deck still tacky?

A coating remaining tacky may be caused by:

-Weather conditions. In cold or humid weather, a coating will take longer to fully cure.

-Application of a thicker coat.

-Contamination on the surface prior to coating.


Allow the coating to dry for another week in good weather. In most cases, the coating will fully cure and the tackiness disappears.
