How does coverage rate work in the real world?

One thing that is frequently overlooked when applying exterior coatings is the film thickness – a vital component in a coating’s durability. To get the best life out of your decking oils and stains, it’s important to get the right amount of product on the timber. Always be sure to measure the surface area you’re coating, and factor this into the amount of coating you apply. In areas that are subject to high levels of direct sunshine, or rain, an extra coat will provide more protection and only slightly change the appearance of your decking.
