Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by john rotten product
I put this product over my 10 year old cedar deck, decking was sound and in good shape just didn’t want to stain anymore. Followed cleaning and prep directions. Followed painting directions. Very time consuming and back breaking. 2 years later, finish still looks good, BUT my cedar decking is rotting to point you can break through, My green treat step stringers “I also painted “ also have rotted to the point the steps are falling off. The product does not breathe and makes the wood hold moisture. I would not recommend using this product.

Chips started appearing in my deck within a month. The product was applied under the right conditions. One year on the deck looks worse than before. DO NOT BUY!!!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Doitmyself Long term quality remains to be seen
We prepped the deck just as described and applied the Deckover as suggested. Applied this to a 13x33 deck. Tips: Don't apply this when it is really warm outside or in direct, bright sunlight. It will dry faster than you can get it on the deck. We started on a mild day early in the morning wit no direct sunlight, which were perfect conditions. Finished up nearing 11:00 a.m. and it was getting too warm to work with the product effectively. So, I would say don't try to apply this when it is cold or hot--mild temp is key. It goes on like glue or mud--really thick so that a second person needs to come in immediately behind the first with another brush to thin it out. It does fill in the cracks and small holes. I used 10 gallons. It looked nice when finished. However, I cannot comment on long-term durability, as it has only been on my deck a couple of weeks. I'm really hoping it holds up, as it was not inexpensive and application did take a little time and work.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DJ1957 Peeled terribly... with proper prep!!
2014 application in Midwest. Experienced contractor power washed wood deck, dried in sun two days, then applied two coats as directed.
2015 saw peeling in spots, did touch-up with 2 new gallons.
NOW spring 2016... LOOKS HORRIBLE!!! Large areas (2' strips!!) peeling everywhere.
Deck will have to be stripped and/or replaced!
VERY POOR RESULTS.
Peeling everywhere. 600 S.F. deck over lake, so stripping is major problem.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by maintman I was not impressed
The product went on as advertised and did cover more than I thought. It looked really nice for a week or so.
Problem is I ordered in Sage which is lighter color and any dirty foot prints show bad. I thought it would just wash off but after 4 weeks I tried scrubbing the deck off and the foot prints will not come up. I used a good floor cleaner and medium brush but foot prints will not come off. I would not recommend this product for anyone with dogs or children who track dirt.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JHN620 Outstanding product
My deck had not been painted or treated for more than 6 years. Cracks and hail damage. Two coats of this product did exactly what is advertised. Make sure you follow directions and apply as indicated on the label. Wonderful result and very pleased with the outcome.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GerryC103 Paint is excellent
Did not have any problems with the paint, though it's on the thick side and covers well.
Some have complained that it does not stick well, but it's all in the preparation.
I have a large deck, over 600 sq. ft, and used a pressure washer first to clean to bare wood, or as best that I could do. Also, it's very skid resistance.
