I never believed the ads for paint or deck coating products. How could any Paint or Coating fill those splits or cracks that develop in wood over time. Never could a Coating take care of the neglect outdoor wood gets, especially on a high desert home like ours! Well I BELIEVE in this BEHR DeckOver product NOW. I had a series of medical emergencies that started in late 2007 and kept me away from my house projects for 6 years. Even worse for my home my son moved away during my recuperation. Long story short my 14 Year old Grandson, who had spent the last 6 years watching Grandpa progress to a wheelchair life, was my only helper. We started, again, stripping the flaking paint from the eve line of our home. We pressure washed it and ultimately scraped the wood clean. Then we followed the directions to the letter from the can. Using three gallon cans of Pewter with one gallon can of Colony Blue mixed to perfection. We put the one thin coat of the DeckOver coating on. The next day we put the second coat on the 2” x 6” Fascia boards covering the rafter tails around the entire house. It took a great deal of time prepping the wood compared to coating it. As you can see from the photos this product, with its ceramic component, is the closest, to being wood in a can, that I have ever seen. BEHR created a winner with this product. We used this coating on a surface that is at a 22 degree angle, and that created its own problems. If you have outdoor wood that needs rejuvenation this is the product for you. It really does bridge the cracks and nail holes that appear in outdoor wood!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tender1 Happy with first coat
Just purchased this yesterday. The brand I wanted was being discontinued so the Associate helped me pick out a different product. I am doing my wood deck in two different colors so I started with the floor boards first. I purchased one gallon and was going back to purchase another one but after reading reviews on other websites I am sticking with one. Directions says 2 coats are needed. A lot of complaints that the product peels after the winter weather. This product is too expensive to have to re-do every year so I will wait until after the Winter to apply my second coat and of course I will update my review also.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by aroyals Worked great for enclosed trailer floor
We painted the plywood floor on the inside of our enclosed cargo trailer with this paint, and so far it has been amazing. The trailer is used to haul anything from cars to tools, boxes and lawn mowers, so it takes a lot of abuse. The way this paint dried kind of reminds me of rubber, it really filled in holes and made a nice thick coat that has a kind of light texture which is great for traction (but not if your goal is a completely smooth finish on your deck).
We used this on new plywood so just had to make sure it was brushed off and clean, but I think older wood might take more prep time and more coats. We did two coats, and so far it has stood up great to having heavy things on it regularly. It turned out darker than we would have thought, so if you don't want a hot surface go with something lighter.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NDCPA Deckover - Excellent Product
I purchased 4 gallons to redo my deck and rails. This product needs a little preparation in cleaning the deck, but it is worth the effort. The finished product is excellent. Rolling on the Deckover was easy and reasonably fast. Second coat in only a few hours. Once it was properly cured, I had a very attractive like new rejuvenated deck. I like it so much I plan to use it on some cedar siding that I was thinking I would have to replace.

What a great product, open immediately I received these; did a little landscaping around foundation of home and the n applied the paint. Perfect coverage; easy application and outstanding finish once dried. For those DIYer, one must seriously consider this as a product to use to a professional look when your project is finished.

Paint is thick to put on - using a roller - spread evenly - need 2 coats. Filled in all the cracks and covered splinters nicely. Highly recommend using this product to restore an old deck.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by signofthetimes DO NOT BUY THIS!
My father purchased this product in late Summer 2014. He followed the instructions to a T, purchasing and using a deck cleaner, rinsing the wood after cleaning, waiting the 3 days for it to dry like the instructions said, and applying the product under the right temperature. Here it is less than a year later, and the Deck Over has chipped and peeled off. The steps that he painted are a mess. This is a worthless product. Do not waste your money.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Vinnie942 DO NOT BUY BEHR DECK OVER!
Used Behr Deck Over in the spring of 2013 and prepared the deck according to Behr's instructions. I was initially very pleased with the results, the deck looked like a brand new synthetic deck. Two years later the deck looks worse then it did before. The rails still look great, but the deck itself is peeling in huge strips. I will never waste my money on another Behr product again.
