This stuff does not work as advertised. after putting on 2 coats as directed with a roller, I still had to brush on a thicker coat to conceal the cracks that were supposed to be concealed just by rolling, and to top it off we waited 5 days for it to cure instead of the 72 hours as directed the first thing it did was chip and show marks of our deck furniture,just by setting them down, after spending 120.00 and 3 days to recover a deck that stuff should wear like iron, but being a latex it acted like latex and I dont know what to use to strip it off, this stuff is garbage

I have to add my 2 cents because there seems to be a lot of negative chatter about DeckOver. I could not disagree more!! I followed the directions exactly per the can and also confirmed them with my local HD paint expert. Yes, it is thick but it is supposed to be so it will hide cracks and holes. Yes, you have to plan so you do not go over it if it has already started to dry so you must keep a wet edge. Yes, you do have to wait 4 hours to apply a second coat and make sure there is no rain in the forecast. If you follow these rules, it turns out beautifully!! Our deck gets a lot of bird do-do and sun. It just washes off with a hose and stays pretty cool in direct sun. Do not be swayed by the nay sayers.

SOOOO THICK Hard to spread/paint on wood.Does not cover evenly. The thickest thing I have ever tried to paint with. Its like spreading melted rubber on the wood. Because does not spread evenly, it will take at LEAST 2 coats. Hard work!

I purchase 2 - 5 Gallon buckets (woodchip color) for a 450 sq ft job. (50 sq ft/Gal).
My cedar beck is 5 years old, was tired of re-treating every 2 years so I thought I'd use this as a friend had used and suggested.
I applied first coat too thin and only used 2.5 gallons. After it dried I painted the 'crack' and spaces between board in order to cover the cracks and not see previous stains on side of boards. First coat I used a 1/2" nap roller cover. 2nd coat I used a 3/4" cover with better results.
This stuff dries very fast, so if you spill/splatter you must smooth out or you need to scrape it to remove bumps. Do Not apply in direct sunlight...keep a wet edge and resist to go back and touch up thin areas.
Overall the deck looks great. I have not moved furniture on it yet, should be interesting to see if it scratches.
I had to work to keep the 2nd coat thick enough to get the coverage. I actually applied across two boards (perpendicular) and then went over the 2 boards in opposite direction to smooth out finish to ensure coverage.
Just take you time and plan ahead for favorable weather conditions.

The clerk at HD talked my mother out of the Restore product , which I wanted to use. I didn't have problems with it being thick like others reported - just the opposite. The Deckover went on just like regular paint, and did not cover the woods imperfections well at all. Based on square feet, we calculated needing 15 gallons for each coat. But we've put on 2 coats, and only used about 8 gallons. We may need to put on more coats to get this to work as advertised.
