    WARNING! Removal of old paint by sanding, scraping or other means may generate dust or fumes that contain lead. Exposure to lead dust or fumes may cause brain damage or other adverse health effects, especially in children or pregnant women. Controlling exposure to lead or other hazardous substances requires the use of proper protective equipment such as a properly fitted respirator (NIOSH approved) and proper containment and cleanup. For more information, call the National Lead Information Center at 1-800-424-LEAD (in US) or contact your local health authority.
    • If needed, sand with 80-100-grit (120-180 grit for rougher surfaces) sandpaper to remove any loose wood fibers
    • Replace severely damaged or rotting boards
    • Clean with Cabot Wood Cleaner to remove dirt, grime, mildew and other contaminants
    • If needed, brighten with Cabot Wood Brightener to remove rust stains, tannin bleed or discoloration
    • If needed, remove old water- or oil-based coatings with Cabot Wood Stripper and neutralize with Cabot Wood Brightener
    • Check the label for additional and specialized directions
    • Shake and stir thoroughly before and during use. If project requires more than one container, blend all containers together to ensure uniformity.
    • Working in small sections at a time (1-3 boards), use a nylon/polyester brush to dab DeckCorrect® into cracks and rough areas before rolling. Use a 3/8-inch nap roller to apply a thick, even coat, rolling lengthwise along boards.
