We had our condo's deck professionally pressure washed and painted using the Behr coating. The wood was bone dry when applied and it looked great for the first year then started peeling. Now less than 2 years later, it's just falling off wherever people walk. I expected a lot more durability from this product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Remark777 Disappointment
My deck was two years old last fall when I purchased this product. The sales girl assured me this was the correct product for my deck. Purchased the special washing formula, washed and let the deck dry. Applied product following all directions, including applying two coats. Less than a year later it is peeling and looks terrible. So now I am faced with figuring out how to get it off so that I can figure out something else to put on the deck. It looked great for first couple of months but does not stand up to the weather. I have tried contacting Home Depot on this issue but none of their phone numbers or chats address this particular situation. My nearest store is over 60 miles away and that is the one that sold me this poor product. Very disappointed!! Had used Behr paint for my entire house, inside and out, three years ago when the house was built. That product has done well and I have no complaints. But this product is not working me and is causing me more work and expense than I had planned. Disappointed that Home Depot has such lousy customer service contact that you can't connect with anyone on this type of issue.

I purchased this product when it first came out- thought my prayers had been answered. The concept was EXACTLY what I was looking for for my old deck.
I cleaned, prepared, dried the decking and applied two coats of this product. It looked amazing. Then, the following spring, huge chunks of the paint were peeling off- very easily. Now it is a disaster. I LOVE Behr paint, and would not use anything else on my walls inside the house. I chose this product based on the success I had with the brand, but was hugely disappointed in this product. DO NOT USE!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DallasGardener Improved My Patio 100%
I used this product on my 20+ year old raw concrete patio and it looks brand new. I expected there were going to be coverage issues in that the old concrete would just drink in the paint, but I covered approx 200 s.f. with 2 1/2 gal of paint applying 2 coats. The clean up was just soap and water and as easy as a latex paint. I only have one issue with this paint and that is the fumes. I was outdoors and perfectly safe with a breeze blowing, but man the smell of ammonia was strong, kind of like Baby Hueys diaper pail. You will probably want to use a breathing mask like I should have done. They tell me there is no smell now that it's dry, but I'm going to be smelling ammonia for a while. That aside, I'm very pleased with the product and the finished project. I would recommend this for anybody with a tired old patio surface. The color really adds something.

I needed to do something with my very old deck it easy looking terrible. I wanted a product that would last be easy to use but designed for this type of thing. material is thicker than regular paint. I I did not want it to look painted so I only did one coat and rolled it on thin . Love the new look.

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.
