Previous coatings must also be removed or properly prepped as ArmorRenew Deck & Concrete Resurfacer works best when being applied to bare concrete or wood. Wood surfaces should be should be lightly sanded and primed with ArmorRenew Primer before applying ArmorRenew Deck & Concrete Resurfacer. Concrete surfaces should be lightly etched with diluted muriatic acid or our ‘Acid Safe’ etching solution. Please note: Deck resurfacer / for wood surfaces only (not concrete), we require the use of ArmorRenew Deck Resurfacing Primer to obtain the lifetime warranty.
ArmorRenew Deck Paint & Concrete Resurfacer is super slip resistant for use on areas that get wet such as pools, steps, and sidewalks. No extra non-skid additives are required.

Questions and Answers:
Are any special skills required to apply ArmorRenew?
-No, ArmorRenew just rolls on like paint. The only ’special’ thing you need to know is to use our special foam roller which allows the product to be applied rather thick to achieive the desired results. It is a very ‘forgiving’ product.
Can I apply ArmorRenew to all surfaces?
-ArmorRenew can be applied to horizontal surfaces (must use our special foam roller to apply) or applied vertical surfaces with our small area roller or brush. It is also available in a smooth, non-textured version for uprights and vertical surfaces which is easier to apply than the textured standard version, and in-between boards.
Can I apply ArmorRenew to painted or sealed wood?
-Yes, but those surfaces must have been painted at least 1-2 years prior. Remove previous coatings/sealers by power washing any old and flaking paint as ArmorRenew, like all coatings, can only stick to what is under it, so if your existing paint is peeling, it should be stripped or sanded. ArmorRenew Primer should always be used for wood surfaces and is required to activate the lifetime warranty for wood surfaces. ArmorRenew can be applied to existing coatings if you are unable to remove them but they should be lightly sanded prior to coating for good adhesion, and the primer used. If your existing coating is really stuck on well, then sanding it for prep is fine. Pressure treated wood should be aged at least 1 year prior to coating.
Can I apply ArmorRenew to composite or Trex-type surfaces?
-Yes you can but those surfaces should be coated first with our Flash Bond Bonding Primer.
Will ArmorRenew ‘fix’ my deck wood or concrete?
-ArmorRenew will fill in minor imperfections up to 1/4″. It is a coating that covers splintering and disintegrating areas. It is though not ‘magic’ and can’t repair rotted or severely damaged wood or large gaps and holes. Any unsafe or rotted boards should be replaced as necessary. Large holes in concrete should be repaired with a concrete patch. Raised boards should be screwed down with galvanized or stainless deck screws. If in doubt, contact a licensed contractor to review your deck or surface.
Is ArmorRenew slippery?
-No, actually it is quite textured, and would not be considered ’smooth’. It is naturally non-skid and can be applied to stairs to reduce slippage. A smooth version is available for uprights and in-between boards.
Can you make custom colors?
-We offer ArmorRenew in 25 beautiful colors. If you want a color we do not make, contact us to purchase our neutral ‘tint base’ and then take it to a local paint store to have it tinted to your desired color.
Is ArmorRenew toxic?
-No, ArmorRenew is completely VOC and solvent free. It contains no toxic materials and cleans up with soap and warm water. It will not harm plants or vegetation.
How long does ArmorRenew take to dry?
Normally 24 hours is needed for the Renew to dry/cure enough to walk on with standard foot traffic. Full hard curing takes 3-4 weeks for it to get ‘concrete strong’. The surface should not be power washed for 45 days. Please note that temperature and humidity and weather can affect cure times +/-.
How much ArmorRenew do I need?
-Coverage is calculated at from 80 square feet per gallon per coat (The thickness of ArmorRenew is what makes it work). So, you need to take your L x W, multiply by 2 (for 2 coats) and divide by 80 to determine the number of gallons. For a 20′ x 20′ area you would need 10 gallons (20 x 20 = 400 sq ft. x 2 = 800 sq. feet. Divide by 80 = 10 gallons required. PLEASE NOTE THAT COVERAGE CAN VARY FROM 50-100 SQUARE FEET PER GALLON BASED ON SURFACE CONDITIONS, POROSITY, WOOD CONDITION, COLOR CHOICE. Also, a special foam application roller is required to apply ArmorRenew. We suggest one roller/4 gal pail as the rollers break down during application from the thick aggregate.
Is it normal for the surface to be somewhat ‘blotchy’ after the first coat?
-Yes, this is normal and will clear up after the second coat is applied?
How long does ArmorRenew last?
-ArmorRenew will last many, many years. Exact lifespan is unknown due to the many variables of weather, use, subsurface condition, etc. Of course, no product can last forever, but ArmorRenew is the thickest, strongest, and most economical coating that can be legally made to resurface your project. We offer a limited lifetime satisfaction replacement warranty in the event of a failure. Contact ArmorPoxy for a copy of the warranty.
I’m unsure about picking a color or if I will like the product, what can I do?
-ArmorPoxy offers several ways to assist you with your decision making process. First, you can order free sample chips of most colors from the main page of our website. These 1″ square chips show the actual product applied so you can see color and the texture. Second, you can order from our Online Store under the ‘Outdoor’ Section, a free (deposit required) complete actual swatch book that shows all of the colors of the actual Renew. Third, you can order from the Online Store/Outdoor Section a small test kit to apply to your surface which includes a quart of the Renew, and a small 3″ special application roller and handle.
Are there any type of applications where ArmorRenew is not recommended?
-ArmorRenew is not recommended for areas that have standing water, poor or limited drainage, or water collects. Not recommended for vehicular/parking traffic. We do offer coatings for these types of areas, contact our office for details.
PLEASE NOTE THAT ARMORRENEW IS MADE IN BATCHES. COLORS MAY VARY FROM BATCH TO BATCH SO PLEASE MAKE SURE TO ORDER ENOUGH MATERIAL FOR YOUR ENTIRE PROJECT SINCE REORDERS MAY SHOW COLOR VARIATIONS. (If this color shift does occur, it can be corrected by putting on a coat of the Smooth Version)
