Hi MLB2007,
Thanks for your question! It would be okay to coat over a wood filler, as long as it's a paintable filler. Good luck on your project! Best, Jeanette P.

Hi Ben,
Slate (SC-102) is a very dark gray shade. It's close to black, but not quite. Good luck with your future projects! - Sara

Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 910 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good color coverage The Deckover paint gave good color coverage on my old faded deck. However, it didn't seal it like I thought it would. August 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Our `old` deck I used a brush for the under the rails and a roller for the rest. Went on perfect and after only one coat. It certainly rejuvenated the deck. Dried very quick too. I removed the furniture first and cleaned the wood with a little soap and water, allowed to dry and simply applied. I have a great deal of confidence in Behr Paints and this product is no different from all the other Behr products I've used. Easy to apply, looks good and long lasting. September 18, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Durable Coating for Cracked and Faded Exterior Wood. This new coating/paint from Behr is designed to rejuvenate old wood decks or concrete surfaces by covering the old worn surface and filling cracks while giving you a long lasting look with a traction aiding grit additive. I chose this SC-146 Cedar color to match the existing color of the stained railing and posts of the deck/porch that we are not re-doing at this time. We didn't want two separate colors between the rails and the surface when we were done. We built the deck six years ago and after a half dozen years of exposure to our harsh winters and summers the stain we applied initially to the surface had pretty much worn off completely. Selection: Each gallon of Behr DeckOver is supposed to cover 50 sq ft of surface with two coats. That's about 1/5th to 1/6th of your normal coverage per gallon for other types of wood treatments. In using so much product, you get a very thick cover over the surface that should last for many years. Measure your square footage and purchase either one gallon or five gallon cans accordingly. Application: Prep the surface with the right cleaners. We used Behr finish stripper and Behr wood cleaner per the can's directions. Good prep is necessary for long lasting finishes with any material. Skimp in prep and you'll pay the price later. Even though it is a very thick product (at least twice as thick as any exterior house paint) you can still apply it with a basic brush or roller. Per the directions and after cleaning the wood properly we first used a brush to take the Deckover and fill all the larger cracks in the wood we were coating. Then taking a roller, we covered the entire surface with one coat and waited four hours for it to dry, then applied the second coat. Application is more strenuous than other paints and stains because it's so thick. You want to apply a good amount of pressure to make sure that it actually gets into the grooves of the wood and not just sits on top of it. When applying, you'll notice at first that the roller does more sliding/brushing the coating around on the wood instead of rolling, but as it goes on it will begin to cling to the wood and apply a bit easier. Again, that's because it's so very thick. The coating dries to the touch quite fast, even in 65 degree weather. The surface of the deck was about 75 degrees. We didn't notice any clumping or 'glopping' of the paint in the can, on the roller or on the wood while we worked. Maintain a wet edge at all times or you'll get an uneven surface. It's best to make sure you start and complete the area without a lot of stops along the way. We used a half can on the front deck/porch and I believe the 50 sq ft estimate on the can is very accurate when applied in two thick coats as directed. If it was very hot, or the surface was really beat up, you'd likely cover even less area per can. Cleanup: The wet coating easily comes off your hands, brushes and rollers with hot water and soap as long as you do it immediately after you finish working. There is no need to use solvents. If you get the coating on wood where you don't want it, cleanup is much harder, it dries and sticks easily and fast, so mask off areas and take your time with a brush near the edges. If you get it on things like plastic siding, as long as you use hot water and take it off right away, it just wipes off. It has an intense ammonia smell, so don't use it in closed in areas. It's odor is very strong, but fades fast outside. Drying Time, Finished Product: The can says to wait 72 hours before foot traffic and we waited four days just to make sure it had dried all the way. So far the finish looks and feels durable and has not peeled off. It does 'dent' under chairs with small feet, but within a day the dent smooths itself out. It does scratch easier than most coatings, I'm not sure if that's because of the gritty coating or because of the thick application method. COLOR NOTES. The color after drying four days does not quite match the advertised color. This may have been an issue with mixing. It's a noticeably lighter shade than was expected based on the website color sample and the in-store sample that we went and looked at later. It's still attractive, but a lighter color than expected and that's important to note. The grit added to the coating is nice and will be great when it rains and snows. the last coating we used was very slippery after any water exposure. In the larger crack filling duty, it fell short. We pre-filled all the big cracks as instructed, but after two top coats they still are visible. I do not see how this would ever fill 1/4 inch cracks as listed. On smaller cracks and defects in the wood, it did a good job of smoothing them out. We're pleased enough with this coating that we plan on coating the rest of the larger back deck next spring and we'll be using DeckOver for that as well. It's expensive compared to other coatings, but the end result is far worth it. I can see this adding quote a bit of life to the deck/porch boards. We'll make sure they tint the next cans a bit darker due to the lighter than shown color after drying. The final effect is a marked improvement in the appearance before we coated it. It really is night and day as my photos show. A regular stain would not nearly have hid as many defects as the DeckOver did. While it is not a miracle worker for old wood and won't fill giant cracks, it does a pretty good job and we're pleased with the look. September 23, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by This stuff is c..". pealed up after one year Product was applied one year ago and it is pealing up this year making deck look like .... July 13, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 1, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. April 18, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Terrible. So disappointed, hours of cleaning, hours of painting and it didn't last a whole year. Spring of 2015, I scrubbed my deck to remove all dead wood, splitters, grime and grunge. It's a second floor deck, with no access to the ground, only entry from our bedrooms. Followed Behr's directions to a T. As you can see from the photo, I might as well have used regular paint. Do not bother with this product, it's not worth the time and energy, you will put in, let alone the cost. The only area that it didn't peel in random spots was in the shade, near the house. May 23, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 15, 2016
