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.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SalishT Not good for me and I don't have a lot of use
I agree with applying this in the early morning. By the end of the day, the stuff was very difficult to work with.
That's not my problem however. The steps of the deck (a porch and deck) are already peeling. These are exposed to the most weather.
Now I'm wondering what I need to do to repair it -- if it's worth it -- or to strip the stuff and start with a different product.
Finally, this stuff was applied on the front of my house. They probably suggest keeping the windows closed, but it didn't occur to me. So my house was filled with a terrible smell. And I was sick for two days afterwards. I have had this problem before, but I usually use latex low odor paint, so it didn't occur to me to do that.

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.

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.

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 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.

We applied this product and followed the directions exactly. After two years it needs to be completely redone. There are cracks in almost all of the deck boards (even in areas that are not walked on like railings) and big areas where the finish has come completely off leaving exposed wood. The staff at the local Home Depot store don't even recommend this when you ask them about it. I spent a lot of time and money on this, and now I'll be switching products.
