Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HappyinSC Seems to be a great product.
We used this product, with the recommended Behr stripper and cleaner to redo our 16' x 17' deck. We replaced the worst of the deck/railing boards before beginning. The hardest part of the project was using the stripper, scrubbing, and rinsing the deck.
The deckover went on very easily and looks great. We bought the associated matching stain to use on the deck railings. The color match between the two was very good,
The whole project took us 3 days to complete. The deck does not look brand new, but it does look great.
The only thing left is to see how the finish stands up over time, in the Upstate of SC.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by danidee56 Looks awesome, just like composite deck look!
Went on nice and thick and filled in all of the gaps of my wood deck that had never been stained or painted. I did not power wash before, just rinsed with a hose. Only issue is small scratches show up when I move my heavy deck furniture without lifting it. We have received many compliments on our deck! Gave it a fresh new look!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by natgro RUINED MY DECK
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.

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.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by EP Waste of money!
Goes on like thick paste. Added 2 coats and already fading within 30 days. Also, purchased the product based on a Promotion for $10 off. Submitted the receipt and all pertinent then get a return postcard stating "no qualified products eligible for rebate based upon sales receipt info provided". So the product lacks quality and they use false advertising??

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.
