Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Outrider Worst Experience i ever had with any paint
It was the worst stuff I ever used in regard to getting the deck ready, cleaned, power washed & etc. The product did not fill the cracks, some of the paint/stain peeled. There customer service told me to completely start over by stripping it to the bare wood. They would pay for all the products to do this, but I had already put in too much time. They need to either train the sales people better. Next when you look at the display in the store, the boards they covered where not weathered deck boards, but new wood.
Also the cermanic or what ever bleed thru after it dried. Please see attached pic.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by dnk Expensive, lots of prep, does not last even a year, leaves your deck worse than when you started
My experience mirrors many others. The deck was about 6 or 7 years old. It had been previously painted and most of the paint had come off, See we decided to deckover it. Cleaned, sanded, let dry, etc etc etc. Applied in three coats, Took our time, did a great job. It looked FANTASTIC when were done. But the joy did not last. Within two months certain parts started to peel. We thought it was our fault and since it was getting to be fall, we decided to just let it go till spring and put another coat on the whole deck. Well by spring over 50% of the deck had peeled up. It looks horrible and now I will have to strip the whole thing and redo it. What the problem appears to be is that this stuff does not really adhere like paint, it more forms a plastic shell around the wood. So if you are in the north east like I am it won't make it through the winter. Any water that gets under it anywhere, will start the peeling process and then it just snow balls from there. So I guess it would work down south. Either way, its a waste of time and money

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Samb864 Very Unhappy after one year
We cleaned our large deck as per instructions, applied the coating as per instructions, and one year later the coating is peeling up from the deck, not in one or two spots but all over our deck. All the money spent on this coating was a waste and so was the high price of labor to install it on our previously beautiful deck. I believe Behr should have to return all our expenses to us including the cost of this coating and the cost of removing it and replacing it on our decks.

Bought deck over to finish 22 year old treated lumber 14'x20' deck Wood was pretreated and cleaned as per instructions on the container and two coats were applied per instructions. After one winter the finish started to peel and crack. There were cracks in the wood (1/16th in width) which were filled with the deck over, however it looks like the finish cracked by the cracks in the wood causing water to get under the finish and causing it to peel off in sheets. Totally disappointed in the product. Wast of time and money.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hineshill 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!!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Crazyman 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.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bob 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.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LAW 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!!
