Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pepe Fantastic product
My deck wasn't in bad shape but had plenty of small cracks and remnants of a previous paint job. I gave it a good stripping with my belt sander and applied a few coats of the Behr. In short, it worked like a charm!
Be warned: this stuff is pretty think out of the can. Use a 1/2" nap roller with small back and forth rolls to work the product in to the cracks in the wood. Be prepared to get a second coat down as well.
Finally, I used the product with grit in it for traction. It does its job well but will catch dirt off your shoes. I went with a beige color that shows the dirt. Bad on me but a great product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Marc Very good overall
I have three redwood decks in my yard. I used Behr's Semi-transparent stain for 15 years. Started switching to Behr's solid stain this year and enjoy the remarkable difference. Went to Deck Over on the neglected redwood. As good as solid stain but different. Important points I want to share. You are adding a new surface to the wood.it goes on thick. Best results I had were completely dipping a 6" roller in the bucket and rolling the excess off on a plastic mesh. Replace boards that have excessive deterioration. Some boards I was able to flip and have a good surface again. I recommend using solid stain on wood structures and redwood decks in good shape. Use Deck Over on older redwood. I used 2 1/2 gallons for one coat on an 18' x 12' deck. Second coat is important and will use less. Happy to see it cleans up easy with water.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LindsayL Horrible Purchase- Peeling after less than a year
Like most people here- the deckover looked great after we first put it on! Loved it the first summer we had it. However, after 1 winter though, not so much. 3/4's of my deck is peeling- and not just small spots, large chunks that are 12 inches plus long and 4-5 inches wide are coming off daily. Everytime I go to wash it off with the hose, even more comes off. I'm highly disappointed in the product. I called Behr and unlucky for me, they can't do anything for me because I don't have the old cans I used last year as proof of purchse.
For the amount of time and money I spent applying it to my deck, I would hope it would have been better quality. I guess i'm stuck buying 6 more gallons this year to fix the mess, because stripping it off is a project I don't feel like tackling.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Zinnia Colors on brochure are untrue
Bought 2 cans for 9 year old deck. I Chose a color much darker than the existing color of my deck. Terra cotta was a pasty white toned clay color. I had brought in a color to match but sales lady said deck over didn't match well and refused to try. I Exchanged terra cotta for darker barn red. I knew it was wrong when she opened the can . Got home ,let's just say lipstick red would be a more appropriate name for it . Unless I want to spar with the homeowners association, I have to pass on this one too. Wasted 40.00 plus gas and my entire afternoon and I still don't have any paint I can use. A couple shopping in the store warned us not to buy deck over so we can't say we were not told. This was my very first time returning any paint .

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Traveler Waste of time and money
Applied as directed last summer. After all, after spending all that time and money you don't want to have to do it again for a long time. It's already blistering. And that doesn't just scrape off, it peels off. Behr is going to replace the product, but not the labor.
Plus this shows and holds on to dirt very easily.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Serangel Brought the old deck back to life
Bought this because my 20 year old deck was looking pretty bad. Went on nicely, but watch your dripping. Paint dries fast and the drips need to be wiped up or they are there for good. Make sure you clean your deck as recommended before painting or it doesn't adhere as well. All in all I would recommend this product for renewing old decks and it also made it slip resistant which is nice.

I Did my mother in laws deck. The wood was old, cracked, and falling apart. The deckover covered most of the cracks, and made it look almost like new, with character, which she loved. It takes a lot of product to cover, but if you read the product, it says it takes a lot, to get the job done, if you don't want to be doing it again in two years. It was Very easy to apply. It's a little difficult to clean up, but I think that would mean it works.. I would recommend it and use it again.

I wish I would have read reviews before I purchased this product. This is my 3rd year with the Behr Deckover. Year one when I first applied it, I prepared my surface just as they said. I spent a lot of time getting it ready. The paint is very thick and I did apply two coats. The first year I was very happy. Yes it did fill in all the cracks as it promised. Year two after winter, it had chips everywhere. Luckily I had some left over so I touched up the chips. Again, working hard to keep it looking nice. This year, beginning of my third year, chips again and I was back out touching up. In reading the other reviews it seems like others had this same problem. I sent an email to Behr and they said I must not have prepared my surface properly. I know that wasn't the case and I'm very disappointed. The problem with this product is now I feel really committed to it. I certainly can't go back to stain after this because this product is so thick, like paint. I guess I will continue to touch up each spring, but makes me wonder if I'm going to have to replace my deck as my next step in a few years. So disappointed.
