Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TenderHolliday 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.

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 1.0 out of 5.0 by natgro RUINED MY DECK
I prepped and applied exactly as instructions say approximately 5 weeks ago. I live in Upcountry Maui- the temperatures NEVER exceed recommended application temps, high or low, year-round. It looked great! 4 weeks later it started bubbling up all over the deck. Really nasty. Cracking and chipping can only be what lies ahead. The house is for sale and my big selling point is now a complete eyesore. I will have no choice but to give a buyer a credit to replace the whole deck. I am going to lose $5,000 by using $150. worth of this 'easy to use, miracle product'!
Just sick after seeing all the similar complaints on this site and many others on the web. Wow, guess I am not alone. I don't think any other Home Depot product reviews have more 1-star reviews than any other star reviews. Point being- THEY KNOW this is a terrible product that is costing buyers HUGE amounts of money to remedy, yet they KEEP SELLING IT.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ems01 Worst product I've ever used
We were so impressed with the demo at Home Depot that in 2013 my sister and I both purchased Deck Over and stained our decks. We both spent almost an entire summer on this project. After thoroughly cleaning our decks and letting them dry. We painted over the cracks and between each board with a paint brush as was suggested by the rep and allowed sufficient time for both coats to dry. Both decks look gorgeous for the remainder of that first summer. By spring 2014 the stain on both decks had cracked and started to peel. We could actually peel off the stain with our fingers. We touched up these areas only to have the same thing happen in 2015 and now in 2016. In addition, we were told the deck would be perfect for walking in on bare feet... It is not! This is very discouraging especially when my neighbors used a plain old deck stain and have much better looking decks. We were told the stain would last for many years and I have touched up my deck every year - what a waste of time and money. Several people asked why the deck looks like it does when it was recently stained and what I've used. I tell them but I also warn them it's a lot of money for very poor results. This product should last more than one year. Up to this point I thought Behr products were far better than other brands. After this experience I am not sure I will purchase Behr again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Pete Horrible - Do not buy
We applied this product and followed the directions exactly. After two years it needs to be completely redone. There are cracks in almost all of the deck boards (even in areas that are not walked on like railings) and big areas where the finish has come completely off leaving exposed wood. The staff at the local Home Depot store don't even recommend this when you ask them about it. I spent a lot of time and money on this, and now I'll be switching products.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Smitty Here we go again . . . pealing!
This product was highly recommended by the Home Depot Paint Dept. Was told it would last for several years. I followed the preparation directions as stated. I spent days with the process. That was last summer . . . fast forward to 10 months later. it's peeling in many areas of our deck. I never intended having to prep and repaint our deck again this summer. More time and $$$.
I believe we should be refunded at least the cost of the paint!
