Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by deaconsangel GREAT SOLUTION
I had a greyed out porch deck with many small cracks and splinters. I thought I would try this product after seeing the commercial several times. IT LOOKS FANTASTIC on my front porch. It smoothed out all the roughness, and filled in the cracks. I did my project with a brush, and found that I didn't need a second coat because I worked it in very well with the brush! I have recommended it to family and friends that were interested in trying it themselves. NOW I need to find a coordinating stain for the house!!!! I will choose a BEHR product for that too!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by zepainter Great stuff... follow directions!
Well this stuff works great as long as you follow instructions. Some have mentioned that they didn't use a 2nd coat but you really should and for good reason. It fills cracks very good but even better with the 2nd coat and a brush on should be recommended, don't use a roller you won't get into the middle of the boards or cracks as well. Be sure to use a dust mask as this stuff is very strong on the ammonia and will make you sick if you are standing over it for even a few minutes. I was able to re-apply 2nd coat in about 3-4 hours the can recommends 6-7 I believe which is still a good number to hit. DO NOT apply in direct sunlight if temps are over 60 degrees as it will dry even faster and smear badly.
Last - be aware that this stuff absorbs sunlight and heat so you can NOT walk on this barefoot while the mid day sun is shining. I've measured well over 120degrees off mine when the sun was directly on it in a 80 degree temp day so you will burn bottoms of feet as I'm sure the temps will go higher!
So follow directions - 2 Coats must be used or you will pay the price later (fill those cracks good to prevent water from getting into them!).
use a mask when applying to avoid inhaling fumes
and don't walk on bare foot in direct sunlight.
I've gone thru 7 gallons on a deck that I used to do with regular stain for 2 gallons and it has taken me about 3-4 days when only applying in the shade of the afternoon and the deck was shaded by house from setting sun.
I've snapped a during picture just to show how nice it looks from what it used to look like and to try to win the $1000 price :)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by mcknzy Deck looks new again!
I painted/stained my deck 3 years ago and it looked good for about 3 months then it began to come off where it didn't seem to have adhered to the wood.
This time I tried the BEHR. Same story,washed the deck,let it dry and then apply with the roller.WOW there is a big difference the BEHR is thicker and covers a lot smoother than the other stuff,it seems to adhere better and filled in the cracks the other didn't,it dried pretty quickly and the deck looks like a new deck again I am impressed with the quality of this product.
I will stick with this from now on,it looks that good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by buster5 This product dries like cement
I loved this product I was very skeptical as my deck 12x12 was old and depilitated. It looks awsome. I suprised my husband who is a painter and he loved it. But, on the brochure it says it covers 50 sq ft in 2 coats and on the can it says it covers 400 sq ft. My recommendation is your deck may not need two coats as it covers wonderfully. Also dried very fast. Money well spent. The reviews definately helped my decison.

Very satisfied with the coverage and the look of our deck! Our deck is 25 yrs old and it really needed something like this. Hope it lasts as long as it says
