Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Obelvedere Every bit as good as advertised
We used this to cover an 18 year old deck and it did a great job. Application was easy as it was not as thick as I had expected it to be. It rolled on very easy and filled in cracks and nail holes in the boards. It's almost like encasing your wood. So far it's been durable. Sliding chairs across it has not left any marks on it and it's got a non slip finish to it. I'm seriously thinking of using it to paint my pool deck this year. The color is beautiful.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Gregglo Terrible Product
I bought this product last year and it didn't last 8 months before it started to peel.I contacted Behr by email with pictures and they said someone would be contacting me 2 months no contact.I called my Home Depot and they said the Behr rep would be in on Monday and would be contacting me.Two days later Home Depot called me and said they talked to the rep and they told them that he only stocks the shelf and I would have to wait for a different rep to contact me.Great customer service,I would not recommend Behr to any one

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dapriest Better results than I expected!
I'd heard a lot about this product through advertising and I spoke with a couple of contractors who have used it and heard remarkable things about its durability and ease of application, so I decided to give it a try. I used the product to paint and seal a 23-year-old concrete floor in my basement. We thoroughly cleaned and prepared the concrete in advance of the application, making sure that it passed the "tape test" (use a piece of masking tape on the concrete... if it sticks, the floor is clean. If not, keep cleaning...) We waited 24 hours after the first coat, then allowed it to cure for 7 days before subjecting it to any traffic. The floor looks beautiful, the tiny cracks in the concrete were easily filled and have disappeared, and the resulting finish is easy to clean an doesn't. Time will tell about it's durability, but so far it's handled rough traffic with no problem. I have a few other outdoor projects planned for the product later this fall.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 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 “T” though 2 coats of it...even doing this in a late Fall weekend when the weather wouldn’t 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 don’t 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 5.0 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 5.0 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.)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chip BEHR Permium DeckOver worked as advertised on my Deck
I used BEHR CEDAR NATURALTONE WOOD and CONCRETE PAINT on my weather exposed deck. I had to replace about half of the 14 year old boards so I needed a product that would help improve the remaining life of the existing boards and match up with the newly installed ones. BEHR PREMIUM DECKOVER did this nicely. Proper preparation of the wood before application was as just as important with BEHR as any other product on the market to obtain the overall desired success upon completion. My only complaint with the BEHR PREMIUM DECKOVER was the color I chose(did not check color samples beforehand). More of a butterscotch pudding color than a natural cedar tone(house color). Clean up was easy with water. I would definitely use BEHR PERMIUM DECKOVER again.
