We have an old wrap around deck that was in bad shape, lots of splinters, looked bad, so tried this to restore it. It actually worked pretty good, no splinters you can walk around barefooted and looked pretty good. For a while anyway, about a week! Then started looking really dirty, like it has a layer of dirt on it. Can't clean it off!! Tried spraying it, mopping it, scrubbing it and it still looks horrible!! Have not had any trouble with it peeling on the actual covered areas, which is why I gave it 2 stars, but on outside areas with no cover it is peeling. Stairs are being redone now, going to try Rust-Oleum 4X restore, see how it does and how it looks! Keeping my fingers crossed!!!!

Although a bit more time consuming to apply - this product did exactly what it promised. It made my older deck look new. If you are using it for a new deck - the time involved would make it less productive. I would recommend this to anybody looking to take an old deck with less than perfect boards and make it look new.

Works like the advertisement says, covers very well - very thick.

I applied two coats of Woodbridge Deckover to our two level deck; the deck had been neglected for a quite a while and had a lot of cracks. The Deckover sealed up many of the cracks, which was fantastic. However, the paint quickly began to peel and crack - moving anything over the deck, such as lawn chairs, causes near immediate cracking and flaking to take place. in fact, having applied the Deckover in the fall, and it's only the beginning of spring...well, I can't imagine what the deck will look like in another winter's time.... At the end of the day, Deckover is simply a thick paint. Imagine running/playing/walking/dragging things over your bedroom wall - it won't look pretty if you do that! So, you are essentially doing the same thing with your deck when applying a coat of paint to it and then running/walking/playing/etc on it. I wouldn't recommend it, quite frankly. Stick with a stain. Easier to apply, doesn't scratch as easily, and is a simpler, tested product. That's my pretty amateur assessment!

About 5 years earlier I had applied Thompsons Water Seal which seemed to work fine for a couple of years, but the deck had become gray colored and had some green mold growing on it. I wanted something that would look good and last longer than just a couple of years. After some research, I settled on Behr Deck Over, in the color of Woodbridge SC-116.
I power washed my ten year old deck, which took about 15 hours over 3 days. I then let it dry for a few days before applying the first coat.
The first coat was applied using a roller and brush on an overcast day with a temperature of about 75 degrees.. A second coat was applied 3 days after the first, and there was no rain in between coats.
I'm very pleased so far with the results. Deck looks great and many of the cracks, holes, chips filled in nicely. There are a few cracks that were not filled in, but I believe this is due to my application, which wasn't as thick as it probably should have been. I have not experienced any of the pealing or other problems. that other reviewers report.
My suggestion is to take the time to clean the surface thoroughly, then follow the application instructions exactly. All in, I spent about 40 hours preparing the deck and applying the coating.
Be sure your deck is completely dry before application, and that there is no rain in the forecast for at least 24 hours after the application. With a little luck, you'll have the same success as I have had.

the deckover was easy to spread. I even had a 3 yr old helping. It's consistency was excellent and I only had to APPLY 2 COATS TO A DECK WAS WAS NEGLECTED FOR 10 YEAR. Awesome product.
