Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dano won't last a full year
Incredibly expensive, doesn't hold up to high sun and winter weather. Just spent the day power washing the loose stuff off. What hasn't already peeled off comes off in big chunks with little effort. I might just rake up all the pieces blown off the deck and send it back to BEHR.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kevin Too early to tell, but so far, so good
I've had this applied on my very old, very weathered deck for about 2.5 weeks now in mid-June 2016, and so far, so good.
It was applied in less than ideal conditions, in partial direct sun, about 80 degrees and low humidity. It had not rained for about 3 days and my moisture meter had the decking at under 8%. I brushed it on to apply it, on over 200 sq. ft. of decking, and also on some vertical surfaces. It was much easier to apply with a wide brush than with a roller. I also feel like you will be able to spread it more efficiently with a brush, and that more product will be wasted with a roller.
It says not to apply if rain is expected within 24 hours. Unfortunately, it did rain about 26 or 28 hours after the second coat was applied. That wasn't in the weather forecast. Let's hope that's enough.
The one main criticism I have so far is that the actual color is VERY different from the in-store brochure as well as the online color guide. VERY different. I originally wanted to do my entire deck in Cedar Naturaltone, which clearly is a light brown in the color brochure. You put it on and it's a bright glowing orange color. After I applied one coat of that on everything, I went to Home Depot and then got additional cans in plain Cedar to do the second coat on horizontal surfaces only. Railings and vertical surfaces I left in Cedar Naturaltone for the contrast. Even the Cedar color is quite far off from the color in the brochure, it's also a bit too orange.
Now let's see if it stands the test of time. I have relatively cold winters here in the northeast and hot, humid summers. I like the texture very much, the matte finish is grippy. And it makes my several decades old deck look like new, almost like composite decking.

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.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Attillathemom Do not buy this product!!!!
Do some research. Most of the good reviews were from people who just put this on. Now that this product is two years old everyone is watching their deck start to peel and chip.
