Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dano won't last a full year
Incredibly expensive, doesn't hold up to high sun and winter weather. Just spent the day power washing the loose stuff off. What hasn't already peeled off comes off in big chunks with little effort. I might just rake up all the pieces blown off the deck and send it back to BEHR.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Catherine Lives up to expectation
My wonderful handyman used this on our old deck in our lost in the woods cabin. The results look great, and he said it was easy to apply. We saved a lot of money by not renting a sanding machine (plus travel time). Be sure to check the square footage each gallon covers, as we had to order more,

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pragmatic Best product for wood deck
I disagree with most of the negative reviews on this product.
I live in Georgia, My 11 year old wood deck is exposed to the sun with hardly any shade. It gets allot of extreme weather. Hot, humid, wet, cold, freezing rain, snow etc. Every Previous products only last two summers before it needs to be treated again. Deckover is on its third summer and still looks great. I expect it to last another two years.
Some users experienced peeling but I have not. A good paint job is only as good as the preparation.
The surface must be clean and dry for a good bond. Peeling means poor bond.
I first treated my deck with a product called JoMax then thoroughly power washed with water. Then let dry for 24 hours before application.
I did not use a roller I brushed on the product. A roller applies the product too thin in my opinion. I also used two coats and it turned out fabulous.
We use allot of potted plants and the product also resists stains.
A few word of warning however, don't apply in hot sun. It dries fast and your brush will load up. I used a large brush and had to clean it several times.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by reb277 Totally revived an old picnic table
This premium Deck Over did a marvelous job reviving an old, weathered picnic table. It applies easily (though it's quite thick) and fills in the wood cracks and crannies. See the pictures.
I used an old paint brush to apply it, which wasn't worth saving, so I can't comment on cleanup as I just threw out the brush.
The table and benches have a new life and will be used hard this (and future summers).

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kevin Too early to tell, but so far, so good
I've had this applied on my very old, very weathered deck for about 2.5 weeks now in mid-June 2016, and so far, so good.
It was applied in less than ideal conditions, in partial direct sun, about 80 degrees and low humidity. It had not rained for about 3 days and my moisture meter had the decking at under 8%. I brushed it on to apply it, on over 200 sq. ft. of decking, and also on some vertical surfaces. It was much easier to apply with a wide brush than with a roller. I also feel like you will be able to spread it more efficiently with a brush, and that more product will be wasted with a roller.
It says not to apply if rain is expected within 24 hours. Unfortunately, it did rain about 26 or 28 hours after the second coat was applied. That wasn't in the weather forecast. Let's hope that's enough.
The one main criticism I have so far is that the actual color is VERY different from the in-store brochure as well as the online color guide. VERY different. I originally wanted to do my entire deck in Cedar Naturaltone, which clearly is a light brown in the color brochure. You put it on and it's a bright glowing orange color. After I applied one coat of that on everything, I went to Home Depot and then got additional cans in plain Cedar to do the second coat on horizontal surfaces only. Railings and vertical surfaces I left in Cedar Naturaltone for the contrast. Even the Cedar color is quite far off from the color in the brochure, it's also a bit too orange.
Now let's see if it stands the test of time. I have relatively cold winters here in the northeast and hot, humid summers. I like the texture very much, the matte finish is grippy. And it makes my several decades old deck look like new, almost like composite decking.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Heather Home Depot should pay to replace my deck
I prepared my deck meticulously following the instructions. After 6 months, it started peeling. Now after 2 years or so it is an absolute disaster. I can peel off huge strips with my hands. I have uploaded a photo showing how horrible the peeling is. I think there is mold growing under the loose strips that I am peeling off. I can't enjoy my deck anymore it is such an eyesore. I can't believe they are still selling this product. My goal for this summer is to somehow get all of this off my deck or I will have to replace every board. This product is a disgrace and I can't believe I am stuck with this horrible mess.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Oldhousehampton An perfect for our needs
Read all the good and bad reviews and decided to give it a try. Our deck wasn't touched by the previous owners and is about ten years old. Alright condition but needed help. Choices were to tear it down and start over or try this or the other brands. Liked the texture of the Behr on the sample so went with it. Did all vertical services in a dark coffee and horizontal in sand to minimize summer heat on the feat.
The bottom line is the deck now looks great. Will last a few more years and saved thousands that we need for the interior renovations.
Read the directions and it is what it says it is. It is not a high end stain. It covers defects.
