The first coat of Restore acts as a primer/repair coat. After applying the first coat it is common that some parts have an even texture and other parts do not. Your second coat will fill these gaps and create an even, uniform finish and texture. Be careful not to overspread. Restore is designed to be applied thick. A fully loaded 9″ Restore Roller will spread 5-7 square feet. Work in small sections that are manageable and roll in one direction with light pressure to apply a generous, even coat. Avoid re-rolling in the same spots. Overworking will begin lifting some of the material and create an uneven finish.
