I put this on our deck 2 years ago & need to retreat some worn areas. What do I need to do to prepare the surface?

I'm hoping its just soap & water cleanup and I don't have to remove all of the old stuff and then reseal.

Answer: 
Hi there,
Thanks for writing in, and sorry to hear Deckover has began to wear off. If the coating is worn in more than just one area, it's best to remove as much of the loose coating is necessary. Any bare concrete should be etched before recoating, and wood should be cleaned with the No. 63 Cleaner and Conditioner. For more information on how to get your project back on track, please feel free to Read More

Answer: 
Hi Kim,
Thanks for checking in! DeckOver can be applied over previous coatings that are in good condition- meaning they aren't peeling or lifting off. Just clean the surface with a concrete or wood cleaner and allow it to dry, then apply two full coats of DeckOver.
Best of luck with your project!

Rated 3.2 out of 5 by 259 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by I used the Deckover paint on my old deck and I had a great experience; what a transformation! First I used the Behr deck cleaner to prep my deck. I had quite a bit of lattice work which was very time consuming. I took my time and painted methodically until I was done. The wood seemed to drink in the paint and sealed in the cracks. I would say that the paint did everything it said it would do. When I look out at my deck, I can't believe that I painted it myself. It looks as though a professional did it! October 16, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great paint I used this paint on an old concrete deck that had been previously painted several times, and was flaking off in 3 or 4 different colors. What a mess. I hosed and scrubbed away as much of it as possible, then bound up the remainder in four coats of this paint for a really nice finish. The product literature talks mainly about wood, but it worked great on concrete, and would probably work well on any porous material. The end result feels clean and smooth under foot, much better than even bare concrete. This is not like regular house paint, it is much thicker, almost like pudding. It is thicker even than driveway sealer. I was amazed at the ability of this stuff to fill in cracks and holes, and smooth over imperfections. However, when it comes to application, this is just like any other latex paint, cutting edges with a brush is easy, and it rolls out very nicely. There is not much easier painting task than rolling out a flat horizontal surface. I even filled in an old footprint with it, spooned it in and let it self-level and dry. This paint is so thick and sticky, vertical surfaces are easy too, no drips or roller splatters at all. Since for me this was a "Seeds" product, I had to pick from a very limited color selection. So I took the color I could get, and cut about half of it about 1:4 with white to lighten it. Oddly, instead of the tan I was expecting, I got lavender. I put down one coat, and it dried ... lavender. So I took the rest of the mix to the local Home Depot paint department, where they were only too happy to help. After adding a two batches of yellow tint, I got a nice chocolate milkshake color. ( Really, when it came out of the shaker machine all frothy, it looked delicious. It made me go get a milkshake on the way home. ) Of course, you can simply buy any color you like from the extensive range of offerings, you don't have to go through all this, but it's nice to know that you can custom tint it too if you want. I put aside 1 gallon of tan for future use, and put the rest on the concrete deck. About 3 gallons of my mix made 4.5 liberal coats on about 150 square feet, which pretty much matches the coverage estimate on the can. It dried to an even hard eggshell finish. On bare concrete or wood, the first coat is going to soak in, and should be considered primer. In that case, I would recommend 3 coats rather than 2 to get a really even consistent finish. Over old paint, two coats should give a nice result; I just kept going to use up all the mix rather than throw it away, I never throw away paint. ( I could probably have done the job with just 2 gallons, but I received 5 from Seeds, plus the gallon of white I mixed in, and I always say anything worth doing is worth overdoing. ) The paint was also delivered with 2 gallons of Behr deck cleaner, although I'm not sure if that would be included if I had purchased it normally. This is a soapy solution to clean dirt and oil off the surface before painting, and worked as advertised. Especially when painting a surface that is going to see foot traffic and perhaps standing water, you want to do all possible preparation to assure good adhesion. Cleanup is like any other water-based paint - soap & warm water - except that you will notice that after the paint has washed away, a gritty black residue remains in the sink. That is how much solids are in this paint! ( No worries though, it rinses right down the drain. ) Naturally, after 2 days of trying, the dog finally managed to walk through it and track up the carpeting, but I caught it fast and it scrubbed out easily before drying. On a warm summer day, you can gingerly walk on it barefoot after just 2 hours, the can says re-coat in 4-6. The can says full cure in 72 hours. More like a week, and even then some things were still sticking, and I had to touch up a few pulled-up spots. You can put light things back out after 3 days, but don't sit on a chair, for example, the feet will adhere and pull up the paint. After 2-3 weeks, it was as hard as it will ever get, and is untroubled even by standing water. The only drawback of this paint is that the moment you open the can you are assaulted by a heavy ammonia smell, which only gets worse when you start rolling it out. Outdoors this is not so bad, but if you are doing a basement, you might want to use a mask and make sure you have good ventilation. It dried my sinuses out real good, whereas regular house paint has no effect on me at all. After finishing the deck and putting away the extra gallon of touch-up paint, I still had over 2 gallons of the original dark brown color. So I decided to use it on the iron railing, which was in as bad shape as the concrete - all corroded and flaking. First I blasted off as much loose paint as I could with the garden hose, then scrubbed the handrail with a steel brush to beak up the rust. Working with small roller, the thick deck paint went over the old metal with much less dripping than I would have expected from a regular paint, and four coats on the top sealed in the rust very nicely. Then I repainted an old metal air conditioner box that was in the same shape as the deck was. Two thin coats gave a very nice result. So you can even use this as house paint! Now the entire deck area is refurbished in two colors, and I still have several gallons left over. I cleaned out an old can and put away a gallon of dark brown for someday. Still having almost 2 gallons of the original dark color, I started looking around for things to use it on. By now I was getting close to the bottom of the bucket, and a lot of solids were settled out, so I mixed it up good with a power mixer, and then had to thin it with about a pint of water. It still had that powerful ammonia smell. I brushed several coats on some old garden benches and a wooden outdoor table. Even for this sort of job, it goes on very nicely, and covers 100% with the first coat. Several coats sealed up the wood completely, which should extend the life a few more years. So really, you can use this paint on anything. August 20, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Nice look initially, durability is questionable This seemed like an excellent product - it was easy to apply and went on nice and thick, which I thought would provide stellar protection and durability for my aging deck. Initially it looked fantastic, nice texture, great color. We followed the directions, and used the recommended Behr wood cleaner to prep the deck. After we had some very warm days after some incredibly cold days, there are now what appear to be stress lines in some areas. I'm very concerned these will turn into cracks and peels like other reviewers have warned about. We chose a dark color, so I can't comment to the foot traffic stain issue others have mentioned (yet).

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Behr Deckover Smooth Finish vs. Textured I live in Bremerton, WA and we get a good share of rain here. We don't get much very cold weather, but it generally snows a few times each winter and can drop in the teens a few weeks per year. It also can get into the 90's for 30ish days per year in the summer months. I used the smooth finish product over previously treated fir 2X6 decking. It hadn't been treated for at least 5 years prior to my using the Behr deckover product. I used the Cape Cod Gray Smooth finish paint on my 600 sq ft deck after sanding and totally drying my wood. It peeled over 40% within the first winter. Totally dissatisfied and frustrated. I have used the Textured Cape Cod Gray on enclosed cargo trailer floors with good luck, though. So I pressure washed my peeling deck, sanded peeling spots, and let dry. I then applied the Cape Cod Gray TEXTURED product and it's been a good choice for me. It dries almost alike it has a hard plastic or even a concrete additive in it. I'm very happy so far with the TEXTURED PRODUCT. I'm waiting for next winter to come to confirm, but I'm confident it'll old up. July 6, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't use BEHR on your deck! We have always used Behr on interior projects and love it. We trusted that the deck over would be a great product and give us a well protected deck....WRONG! It has peeled and you can't get it off. We spent hours scraping and have decided to dig the paint out of the screws and flip the boards. If you are trying to decide if you should use this product (or similar products...rustoleum, olympic, etc) DON'T do it!! May 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product Just used this on my 20 year-old porch that had been stained and painted. Had to do alot of scrapping before applying but it worked just as it said it would. Just don't buy too much. I covered almost 450 sq. ft with 5 gallons and did apply two coats. Had bought a second 5 gallons as I thought it was 375 sq. per 5 gallons. Couldn't return it so sold it to a friend. Best part is it cleans up with water!!! June 14, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Thinking of using this? Don't! I put this product on bare pressure treated (and aged) lumber. Two years later and it is peeling and flaking off. Now I have to figure out how to remove it so I can use a better product. My deck looks terrible and this product is to blame. Terrible. May 27, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Poor Product - Difficult to apply - Peels Quickly Product is extremely difficult to apply. Is too thick to apply with roller. If you are successful applying with a roller the product leaves a textured surface. We were finally able to apply with a 4" brush. Use of a brush drastically extends the time required. We power washed the deck and just prior to application re-sprayed deck with garden hose and spray attachment. We allowed several days to dry and started application. Several sections of deck started to peel within a month. At the point of this review the product has been on for about 9 months. It is peeling at many locations on deck. I would not recommend the use of this product. As Review Title states it is very difficult to apply and then does not stick to decking. I am extremely dissatisfied. June 30, 2016
