Although Behr Deckover is comparable in price to other deck coatings it does not live up to the hype. I have no issues with the coverage, however, I used a light grey and it is already embarrassingly dirty looking and will not come clean. I realize that the product has a rough texture but if it is going to hold airborne dust and dirt DON'T offer this in light colors! We just applied this in June so time will tell if it holds up to winter. Could only recommend this to people I don't like.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by DeckDoc Looking good, but will it last
I have a 12' x 36' deck made of PT wood, that had Sico premium opaque wood stain on it, that is what was left of it; Took 2 days to sand it down to bare wood. Bought a 5 gallon of textured Deckover (for some reasons, unable to write a review on that side)
First impressions: This stuff smells really bad when you open it, not unlike amonia. It is the tickest stuff I ever painted with, very close to concrete.Forget using the screwable cap, the stuff will take forever to ooze out.
I used a 1/2" pile roller as suggested, and more or less quickly got the hang of how much to have per dip without having to much drip.
The coverage is great, say 4 out of 5; stuff being so thick you have to work it in in some areas. Oddly enough, the second coat took more product than the first.
A word of caution: Instead of going with the boards lenght, I followed another reviewer's advice and went across about 4-5 boards, and then only board wise to smooth it out.
The resulting effect is the across board rollers passes showing a little. I will live with it but when a touch-up coat will be needed, I will be sure not to go across.
They say it feels touch dry within 4 hrs, but my experience is more below an hour. The end result is quite pleasing, kind of rubberized. Here in Montreal south shore, we get all kinds of weather, so I am curious (worried?) to see how this will age down.

I spent a lot of time preping my large deck, followed all directions carefully and even sanded the area. Looked terrific last fall but I noticed this Spring chips in several areas; these "chips" peeled into unsightly strips. Deck looks terrible and will take hours to repair. This product also stains from foot traffic -- scrubbing doesn't remove the marks.

I did everything I was supposed to when I applied Bear deck over on my deck last fall. When all the snow disappeared this spring so did the deck paint. Now I have to do it all over. Thought it was supposed to last for a couple of years! Not happy!!!! Definitely finding something different. Was so disappointed because it looked like such a great product.

Applied to my wooden deck in the summer, 2013. Followed directions to the letter! Results very disappointing, Peeled and Chipped March 2014 (see photos). Home Depot needs to reevaluate it's Behr product line before highly recommending this to it's loyal customer base! Used it's regular Behrs stain that lasted for 3-years prior. Will HOME DEPOT stand by it's product and reputation and reimburse customers for this issue!? TBD
