  1. Conduct several small test samples in inconspicuous areas (one foot square). It is essential to conduct several tests in different areas, as the condition of the surface will vary depending on the extent of exposure to the elements. Monitor the time it takes and the amount of product used to achieve satisfactory results.  This test sample will help you bid the job accurately and schedule the amount of time necessary to complete the project.
