    proper understanding of painting vocabulary

    Hello

    Do I get these expressions right?

    Rollable deck coating = coating to be applied to deck by roll?

    Sprayable deck coating = coating to be applied to deck by spray?

    Trowelable/trowel deck coating = coating to be applied to deck by trowel?

    Thank you

    Yes, you understood them correctly. Note my corrections above. Don't forget to end every sentence with a punctuation mark, even such short sentences as "Hello" and "Thank you".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    This is a little more natural.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
