Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by delawarebill deck over paint
got 4 gallons of the deckover. my deck is about 10 yrs old and is showing splitting on the boards. not wide but wide enough to see. did a good power wash and it rained that nite to give an extra rinse. let dry for 3 days and started. i found out right away this paint is VERY thick and was not sure if it would get into the cracks or just cover over.. now i want to say what i did is not on the label so most likely not advised.
but i thinned it down with water (good for clean up so good for delusion. i didn't measure the water went by feel. but i'd say 1/4 water to a gallon of paint. like a little thicker then pancake syrup. this way i was able to squeeze it into the cracks easily. 2 coats and it's like 150 grit sand paper vs 50 grip out of the can.
just finished today so time will tell if i just blew $140 bucks or not. but i like how it looks and went down.

This is a great product to turn old, tired decks back to "Like New" condition. Easy to use and very attractive on old decks.

Product was applied per label instructions. Deck is fifteen years old and previously treated with stains that did not last more than three years due to full sun of the Southeast. Product is now in the third season and shows no signs of wear on deck, stairs or railings. Most cracks and gouges were filled and remain that way, much to my surprise. Application rate was accurate, for me that was four gallons each time for two times. Drying time was less than four hours for first application. Slate gray dried slightly lighter and was planned for and was satisfactory. Contacted Behr with support questions and got information quickly and easy to understand. If I have another need I would use it again.

Well ladies and gentlemen, here is your honest opion of this product. DONT WASTE YOUR TIME OF MONEY!!! I followed the direction on the can, using there cleaner and properly preparing the deck as the direction said before applying the product. The deck I applied it to is not a real high traffic area but I would say 35% of my deck is pealing or bubbling up. I will have to some how remove the behr deck over and attempt to refinish my deck again. I would never recommend this product to anyone. Please dont waste your time or money. It's a quick fix that looked great at first but barley lasted 8months. Garbage!

followed the instruction exactly, had to use two cans for a 10 x13 deck. the stuff is so thick. when I was finally finished it looked great, 4 months later and the paint is faded and gone in so many spots. won't buy this again.

I prepped and applied exactly as instructions say approximately 5 weeks ago. I live in Upcountry Maui- the temperatures NEVER exceed recommended application temps, high or low, year-round. It looked great! 4 weeks later it started bubbling up all over the deck. Really nasty. Cracking and chipping can only be what lies ahead. The house is for sale and my big selling point is now a complete eyesore. I will have no choice but to give a buyer a credit to replace the whole deck. I am going to lose $5,000 by using $150. worth of this 'easy to use, miracle product'!
Just sick after seeing all the similar complaints on this site and many others on the web. Wow, guess I am not alone. I don't think any other Home Depot product reviews have more 1-star reviews than any other star reviews. Point being- THEY KNOW this is a terrible product that is costing buyers HUGE amounts of money to remedy, yet they KEEP SELLING IT.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ems01 Worst product I've ever used
We were so impressed with the demo at Home Depot that in 2013 my sister and I both purchased Deck Over and stained our decks. We both spent almost an entire summer on this project. After thoroughly cleaning our decks and letting them dry. We painted over the cracks and between each board with a paint brush as was suggested by the rep and allowed sufficient time for both coats to dry. Both decks look gorgeous for the remainder of that first summer. By spring 2014 the stain on both decks had cracked and started to peel. We could actually peel off the stain with our fingers. We touched up these areas only to have the same thing happen in 2015 and now in 2016. In addition, we were told the deck would be perfect for walking in on bare feet... It is not! This is very discouraging especially when my neighbors used a plain old deck stain and have much better looking decks. We were told the stain would last for many years and I have touched up my deck every year - what a waste of time and money. Several people asked why the deck looks like it does when it was recently stained and what I've used. I tell them but I also warn them it's a lot of money for very poor results. This product should last more than one year. Up to this point I thought Behr products were far better than other brands. After this experience I am not sure I will purchase Behr again.

Tired of scraping and repainting front porch and steps every summer. Sanded down to bare wood and painted with Deck Over in Slate Gray. This is year two and still no sign of chipping, bubbling, or coming loose. So happy don't need to repaint porch again. Also used it on back steps and handrail. Gets lots of sun but still no problems. Hoping it will last many more years.
