Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mophead Good Coverage
Using Behr Premium DeckOver on weathered wood, I found that it has good coverage qualities without a critical need for primer. It appears that a second coat may result in slightly better performance, which would indicate a need for primer on raw weathered wood. However, the results without primer for my purpose is excellent. The Silver Gray color is close to the color of new concrete, making this a good choice for painting that material. I'm working on a project now to repaint concrete steps and will report on the results at a later date. For now, without the benefit of how this paint performs over time, I can recommend this product.

In the before pictures, you can see that the weather had really deteriorated our decking. The original deck paint could not hold up to the sun and the weather, and the wood had split in many locations.
Prior to application, we scrubbed the decking with an all purpose cleaner, and pressure washed to remove the cleaner and loose paint.
The application of the Behr Deck Over was fairly straight forward when applied per the instructions. I do not recommend applying in the direct sunlight on a warm afternoon. The first coat tended to dry faster than we could apply the material.
the second coat was applied early in the morning before the sun hit the deck. It went on much smoother than the first coat. The pictures show the deck following the second coat. We will be applying a third coat, since we have enough left over.
My only "Con" is that the paint shows the footprints and traffic dirt in a relatively short period of time. After a light mopping, the dirt and footprints came right off.

It was time again to refurbish my deck posts and railings due to extreme weather here in Tennessee and the weather the past couple of years with extreme heat, rain and hail damage. I searched for the best possible paint or stain for a well used deck and decided to purchase BEHR DeckOver. I am so very pleased with the results. The deck looks great and the application of the paint was very easy. It dried within 20 minutes so I could apply the second coat. The paint sealed a lot of rough spots eliminating possible splinters. I love the color and the finished product. I would highly recommend the use of the BEHR DeckOver products and their large variety of colors.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Runswithdogs Terrible. So disappointed, hours of cleaning, hours of painting and it didn't last a whole year.
Spring of 2015, I scrubbed my deck to remove all dead wood, splitters, grime and grunge. It's a second floor deck, with no access to the ground, only entry from our bedrooms. Followed Behr's directions to a T. As you can see from the photo, I might as well have used regular paint. Do not bother with this product, it's not worth the time and energy, you will put in, let alone the cost. The only area that it didn't peel in random spots was in the shade, near the house.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Remark777 Disappointment
My deck was two years old last fall when I purchased this product. The sales girl assured me this was the correct product for my deck. Purchased the special washing formula, washed and let the deck dry. Applied product following all directions, including applying two coats. Less than a year later it is peeling and looks terrible. So now I am faced with figuring out how to get it off so that I can figure out something else to put on the deck. It looked great for first couple of months but does not stand up to the weather. I have tried contacting Home Depot on this issue but none of their phone numbers or chats address this particular situation. My nearest store is over 60 miles away and that is the one that sold me this poor product. Very disappointed!! Had used Behr paint for my entire house, inside and out, three years ago when the house was built. That product has done well and I have no complaints. But this product is not working me and is causing me more work and expense than I had planned. Disappointed that Home Depot has such lousy customer service contact that you can't connect with anyone on this type of issue.

After cleaning our deck, I put two coats of this product on my deck. One year later it is peeling and it needs to be redone. (We do live in a four season state, snow, rain, wind and hot summers) I was really disappointed.
