One coat is usually adequate, but for extremely porous surfaces, apply a second coat within 2-4 hours of the first coat. Do not over apply this product, it may result in a hazy or whitish finish.
If your surface has corners or edges, coat those first with your brush. Then using a synthetic brush, pad, roller mop, squeegee or sprayer, apply one coat to the entire surface.
