No, the deck or walkways must be clean of oils, rust and paint scale.  You don’t want rust to continue to attack the metal underneath, weakening substrate materials/surfaces. Our adhesive will seal the deck and help protect it. Your deck will have less abuse and our anti-skid surfaces will last longer because of that initial surface care.

 This is not covered under Warranty; failure to properly prepare and clean the deck will be the responsibility of the installer.
