Tacky deck after painting

amav31July 17, 2011


I painted my deck with SW Deckscapes solid stain.

I cleaned it thoroughly with the same brand paint and sealant removal , power washed , let it dry for 2 days and then painted. I used a roller. Let it dry over night and applied a second coat. It has been 4 days now, and when I walk on my deck it feels tacky. I cannot see the footprints but still my feet does not feel the complete bone dryness. Will it ever dry.? The first coat also was tacky before I applied the second coat. Any suggestions? Temps in the 80's here in northeast during day and 60's in the evenings.

Any suggestions or tips.?
