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 catm Do not put this stuff on your deck!
I bought this product to make a newer addition match the older part of my deck. It was time consuming and difficult to apply. We used 2 coats as recommended. It covered well and did mask the difference in age of the 2 sections.
My first complaint was that it made the surface of the deck (which surrounds a pool) incredibly hot and impossible to walk on without shoes.
Now after only 2 years the finish is cracking and peeling. It looks terrible. My once lovely deck is an eyesore! A waste of time and money that destroyed my deck, which was a considerable investment and can not be presently replaced.

Don't use this product. It will waste your time and money and will ruin your deck.

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 Marsh50 Chipping and peeling off like crazy. Do not buy!!
Like the reviews that are good for this product, it looked great when initially applied. I did 2 coats and it looked amazing. Chipping and peeling is occurring all over my deck now (less than 2 years after applying). It looks terrible. What is still on there is impossible to clean. Any dirt that ends up on it is impossible to get off. What a waste of time and money. Stay away!!!

Too bad you can't give it a '0.' I have a large deck (2 actually). Followed the directions to a "T." Sanding, 2 coats, the whole nine yards. Did this in August. After the first snow in November, the peeling began. Worst deck product on the market. If I had not followed the directions verbatim, I wouldn't be voicing these complaints. However, everything was done down to the last detail. Don't buy this product. You'll be re-finishing your deck immediately. I can't stress this enough.

Seemed like a great idea and value a year ago.
Was recommended and pushed by the Home Depot staff.
Prepped as directed and loved the result. A year ago I would have given it a 5 star rating. That was a year ago. In less than a year the paint is peeling and in some areas the nails and screws have rusted through the paint.
Waiting to see how Behr intend to resolve this issue. Time and money spent- should have gone with the more expensive product. Deckover was too new to get a true impression from online reviews.

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.)
