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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by Upchuckjohnnie Looks Great!
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.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0Â by SgtPatio Not what I expected
I bought two 5 gallon containers of this stuff, as well as the treatment prep solution to clean the deck off with first. I followed directions pretty much to a âTâ though 2 coats of it...even doing this in a late Fall weekend when the weather wouldnât cause issues. Looked great when it went on and was thinking with that strong ammonia odor that this stuff was binding to my wood really well. Was pretty pleased with it for many months. However, after this past winter, I have cracking & peeling just about everywhere including the hand rails that donât get hardly any touch. Over $400 down the drain if you add up all the supplies this took. VERY disappointed.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by Bartons1944 VERY Disappointed
August of 2013 we bought 15 gallons to refresh our deck. Gave it 3 coats and look acceptable. Well, we had a snowy winter and now it looks awful. It is peeling in sheets on much of the deck. I have no idea what we are going to do now. I am not sure if there is a solution. There was no salt applied to the deck so that was not an issue. I am truly devastated having spent almost $500 for this product. I cannot afford to have the deck rebuilt so I am stuck with a terrible deck on my home. I have used Behr products before and they are always very good. I guess I am truly stuck!!!!
I have always been a Home Depot guy and actually worked there for a while 2 years ago.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by DoItYourself Waste of time and money.
I was very excited when I first purchased this product. My deck was terrible and after watching the videos and looking at the reviews I decided on this product. It looked so easy in the videos.
Well, after taking the time (seemed like forever) to completely sand and prepare my deck, I started to apply the Deck-over. First of all, it was so clumpy and thick it was almost impossible to roll on. I used the recommended roller and everything. Then it used so much just to cover a small surface, i ended up having to buy at least twice what i originally planned.
It took way more time, and far more money than I had planned to do this project, and worst of all, less than one year later it is cracking, peeling, and blistering all over. I would NOT recommend this product to anyone that does not wish to have to do all the work over again in another year or two. Also, it is extremely hard to keep clean, the redwood color shows every speck of dust and no broom or hose seems to get it off. Maybe if you used a pressure washer, but I'm sure that would cause the paint to peel and blister faster.
P.S. (some people are saying the deck with the deck-over looks worse than before, very disappointed in this product.)
