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.

I pressure washed my pool deck waited the next late afternoon until completely dry. I painted half the deck floor and had 3 other friends tell me that the paint I was using peels really bad . I didn't go any further . They were so right !!! Painted in April and opened the pool in June nothing but paint chips in my pool!!! It is a mess!! They won't give me my money back or exchange it !!! I don't even want to give this even one star!!! DO NOT BUY THIS PAINT!!!! Paid over 100 dollars for this junk!!!!!! What a loss and a lot of work ahead of me!!!!

If you want your deck to look terrific for one season then this is the product for you. However, be aware that after one snowy winter your deck will emerge as the laughingstock of the neighborhood as large section will peel right off as you walk across your deck. Be prepared after you apply this product to spend additional time a year later chipping off the loose pieces in order to correct your deck with a proper stain which you wished you used the first go around.

I prepared the deck as instructed. Applied, and it looked fabulous, but only lasted one winter. I do not recommend this product for intense sun and snow areas, 8000ft above sea level. Total waste of time and money, and a NIGHTMARE to remove, because I have to get it all off and just clear cote. Love this brand, but not this product.

First of all the color is "Orange" not "Natural". It is so thick it is difficult to apply. We have been hampered by rain, but will finish our deck project this week. Then we will paint over this awful color with something more realistic but it won't be Behr.

I followed the instructions to a T. I applied after the sun went down, prepped my deck prior and didn't walk on it for a week after application. It looked great all last summer but after one snowy Connecticut winter the whole deck started peeling up. The same thing happened to my brother in-laws deck in Newport, RI so it was not user error as Behr tells you when you call.

A few months after applying, the deckover was already peeling. Now a year later and I'm having to figure out how to fix the mess that is all over my deck. Do NOT waste your money or time using this product.
