Painting deck

Its time or close too it, for the big project,using interlux primekote 2 part ,and interlux 2 part paint,, my deck is nearly all non skid, or at least 80 per cent. I was going to use kiwi grip for the non skid..Should I do the non skid first, OR,do the smooth part first?..oh its going to be 2 different colors..Thanks in advance..

Re: Painting deck

Logic would tell me to paint the smooth first: the tape to separate the two areas will stick much better to the smooth paint than the textured.

However, logic and experience don't always agree.

Agreed on this. We painted our entire deck white in Jotun 2 pack polyurethane, then I taped off the non-skid sections, painted a different colour Jotun 2 pack, sprinkled on the fine non-skid grit, vacuumed off the excess, then painted two more coats of the 2 pack. Let it dry for a day or two, remove the tape, voila! All done.

Ours is still going strong a few years later, although can be a bit of a PITA to clean as it shreds sponges. Quite grippy in a seaway tho.

I assume you sanded down both the flat and the non-skid before reapplying as primer coat?

No, we started from bare steel, applied the primer, did the overall coat, then applied the non-skid and overcoated.

Overcoating within the 48 hour window allowed for chemical adhesion, meaning we didn't need to sand between coats. About the only way to sand off non-skid is with an angle grinder.....
