When applying repellent, press against the surface to help ensure good adhesion.Apply beads of repellent no larger than1/2" wide by 1/2" high. DO NOT COVER THE ENTIRE SURFACE.
For surfaces less than 4" wide, apply one bead of repellent 1" from the outside edge. For surfaces 4" and wider, apply one bead 1" from the outside edge and additional beads for every additional 2" in surface depth.
Leave a small gap in the bead of repellent every 1 to 2 feet to allow for water drainage.
