Clean your garage doors. I did this by power washing them with a hose nozzle.
Let the doors dry completely.
Wait until you have a warm day, between 70ºF and 80ºF.
If there is time when the garage doors are in the shade, do it during that time.
Start at the top or bottom and work in sections, ending where the square sections end. This allows you to have a stopping point and not create a lot of streaky lines.
Work your way up or down, just doing the one square-wide section at a time. Move over to the next square section and continue up or down. Try not to re-brush over where you’ve already brushed the stain on.
I did my doors when it was 60ºF out and they took a long time to try, about 8 hours. This was a problem because as they dried, dust and animal fur got on the bottom of the doors. It isn’t noticeable, but quicker drying times would avoid that.
Let the first coat dry completely. If you try to add the second coat while the first coat is still tacky, it will brush off.
Add a second coat the same way you added the first.
