After cleaning our deck, I put two coats of this product on my deck. One year later it is peeling and it needs to be redone. (We do live in a four season state, snow, rain, wind and hot summers) I was really disappointed.

This is a very durable product. I used it on the wood base to my sheds in late 2013 and they still look great. This is a nice grayish color and blends in well with the landscaping. I also used it on the concrete steps up to the shed and it has held up very well. One can covers about 50 sq.ft. as you have to do 2 coats but it is well worth it. There are very good directions on the can. I recommend this for any outside application.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HDKevin Excellent protection and coverage
I did not use this on old weathered wood, rather new OSB for a trailer. It went on smoother than I expected. Slightly thicker than semi-gloss paint; maybe like a pudding consistency. Did not need any special equipment. Just 3/8 nap roller. It is very potent and the odor was strong so make sure you're in a well ventilated area. Dried fast and covered well. The can indicates that 50 square feet with two coats per gallon. I was able to do two coats of 100 square feet with about 1.5 gallons. Mind you it was new OSB not deeply weathered decking. I liked this product because the side boards are now water proof and extremely protected from the elements and product. I plan on doing the wood floor decking on the trailer once the pressure treated wood dries out.

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.

After I applied on the old wood deck, it is rough and dried fast, applied deck surface is not smooth, uncomfortable to walk on it with bare foot.

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 MW Product should be taken off the market!!
Applied Deck over per instructions on can, after 1 year it is pealing and bubbling. It is difficult to put on, very expensive, doesn't cover as advertised.
