I used this last fall. Deck was expertly prepped, hand scrapped and power washed. This spring now, it is peeling off in patches and the deck has not even been used yet.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LadyV I love my refurbished deck!!!!
I used BEHR DeckOver to restore our deck and I love it. Previously, the deck had been painted at least twice, but when we moved into the house the paint was peeling, chipping, and spotty everywhere. DeckOver, made my deck look and feel like new. Several people thought I re-did the deck with composite material. We have a multi level deck so I used two colors, Bordeaux and Castle Gray.
Although it's as easy to use as paint, I recommend starting early in the morning. Allow your 1st coat to dry midday and applying your second coat in the evening. It's nearly impossible to apply this paint in the heat of the day. It's very thick and will congeal fast if it's warm outside. Even after power washing, stripping and sanding my deck was still in bad shape so the regular DeckOver didn't quite meet my expectations for filling in cracks and gaps. If I had it to do over again I would probably use the textured version with a smooth roller for better coverage. I'll come back next spring to review how it held up over the winter, but for now I'm looking forward to enjoying my new deck this spring and summer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MarilynB IMPRESSIVE COVERAGE, GREAT RESULTS!
As seen in the photos, our steps (which were last stained about 2 years ago) needed attention. We were planning to replace them this summer, but didn't get the chance. We thought we would try this DeckOver product first to see what it could do.
I was impressed, the coverage is remarkable. This paint filled in most of the cracks and crevices with the first coat. It took a while to work the paint into all the cracks on the first coat, but the second coat finished the job very well. It did have to be stirred more frequently than regular paints, as a film would start to develop on the surface (it was a cool 70 degree day, and there was a breeze). It is a thick paint, and a little more difficult to spread evenly for a slow painter like me but it got easier as I progressed. It has a slight odor similar to ammonia - but not overpowering while working outdoors. I used less than 1/2 gallon for the steps and now plan to paint the porch floor planks next.
The Bordeaux color is a little lighter than what I prefer, but it is very close. I am hoping that this covering will last a bit longer than the previous stain products I've used. I am so pleased that we did not have to replace the steps, they look so much better now! (for some reason, my camera did not capture the coloring properly - the steps do not have the blotchy appearance that my photos seem to show!)

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 Heather Home Depot should pay to replace my deck
I prepared my deck meticulously following the instructions. After 6 months, it started peeling. Now after 2 years or so it is an absolute disaster. I can peel off huge strips with my hands. I have uploaded a photo showing how horrible the peeling is. I think there is mold growing under the loose strips that I am peeling off. I can't enjoy my deck anymore it is such an eyesore. I can't believe they are still selling this product. My goal for this summer is to somehow get all of this off my deck or I will have to replace every board. This product is a disgrace and I can't believe I am stuck with this horrible mess.

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 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.
