I use it as well and it does a good job. Let us know how well the white covers the blue. You may need or plan on two coats.

I top coat a single coat each year and the black/white blend used to make grey is always slightly different. On the hard over the winter, I can see variations, but always wonder if that has more to do with pressure washing than just wearing off during one season.

I've also been told that, while the active chemicals will remain through the winter and you can stretch it to two years, it really loses effectiveness after about 18 months. The second half of your second season is fuzzy.
