Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by apljacker Excellent deck paint
I bought a five-gallon bucket of Deckover and waited impatiently for the rain to stop in early July. Finally got a stretch of very hot weather, and painted despite 90-degree-plus temps. Label says to paint in 50-90 degree weather. It's very thick, giving a good coating to my worn 18-year-old deck. Even one coat looked good, but I put the recommended two on, and now the surface is much nicer to walk on. It made my deck look brand new. I had just enough left over to paint my concrete entry steps, and they came out great, too! I am very happy with this product.

Put this on a 50" x 50" deck after first Behr product failed and Behr company replaced with Deckover.After talking extensively with Behr rep.I put this on as he recommended,less than 1 season later it is peeling worse than the original paint.Definitely recommend different product than Behr.

We did a 12 x 20 deck last summer following all instructions and to our dismay it is all peeling off like rubber.For the price this makes no sense,must redo entire deck.Will never use this again...

The clerk at HD talked my mother out of the Restore product , which I wanted to use. I didn't have problems with it being thick like others reported - just the opposite. The Deckover went on just like regular paint, and did not cover the woods imperfections well at all. Based on square feet, we calculated needing 15 gallons for each coat. But we've put on 2 coats, and only used about 8 gallons. We may need to put on more coats to get this to work as advertised.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NaperHandyman56 Great coverage, great color, easy soap/water clean-up
This solid stain goes on like a latex paint, much less dripping than with most stains. The product adheres well to the surface and 2 coats do fill in most minor cracks and rough spots. The top of my deck railing is now flawlessly smooth, where before you couldn't rest your arms on it with getting scratched. Will see if the 12-year guarantee holds up. One negative point - watch out for the intense aroma smell when you open the 5-gallon bucket.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Christopher Great product that made old deck look new!
We used DeckOver on a wooden deck that was over a decade old, that was truly an eyesore to look at. After applying 2 coats the deck looks brand new. Another added bonus, it seems this will help keep nails from popping up. We bought this product after seeing a neighbor 's deck who used it 2 years ago and it still looked great.

I considered Restore because my deck was in bad shape, but after seeing a friend's deck when he used it (after one year it was peeling and chipping badly), I decided to use Deckover. Depending upon the size of your deck this is not a weekend job. My deck is almost 1000 sq ft and I did half one weekend and the other the next; drying time between coats is 4-6 hours. My deck look s great, most of the boards are smooth and look new. Did I mention my deck was in very bad shape? Here a couple of things I discovered;
1) To fill in cracks roll the stain perpendicular to the crack. For stubborn cracks, use a brush and don't be shy with the stain, again brush perpendicular.
2) Don't leave wet stain late in the evening after the sun goes down. When the condensation forms over night, it makes the stain discolor and you'll have to redo that area.
3) While applying stain, keep paint pan in the shade. It dries quickly in the sun and creates a film that makes the surface bumpy when applied.
Just a few things I learned, I hope they help. It was real work, but the end result was worth it.
