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 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.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Cvkamp36 Very Difficult to Use
There are a lot of restrictions on this product. Have to wash per Behr, cannot paint in heat, cannot paint in cold, cannot paint 24 hours before rain, cannot paint 24 hours after rain, have to fill cracks first, two coats..... If you have the time, like a entire summer, to use this product then you will get a fine finished deck. If you do not and you skip a step, watch out because you will be sanding or replacing wood as it does not just power wash off. We washed our brushes every hour because the stuff is so think and dries so fast we had clumping on our brushes that left a lumpy finish. We did not use a roller, it is too thick for a roller to cover correctly and leaves a surface too rough to walk on with bare feet. We had to sand areas down after that mistake. If I knew all this prior I probably would not have used it however if your deck is in rough shape and you have more patience then I do you will be happy with this.

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 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 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 Bill Behr Deckover paint will PEEL after one year
We bought a 5 gallon can of Behr Deckover paint. Followed the instructions. Pressure washed the deck. Painted when the temperature and humidity were appropriate. Now the paint is peeling one year later.
I want my money back.

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!!
