Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mjf1 EXCELLENT deck paint
Did the pool deck this past weekend. Oh my goodness did it come out nice and cover well with one coat BUT I did put on the second coat (as recommended), Also prepped it well- scraped and wire brushed the old paint and used the cleaner as recommended. Also letting it cure well before all the traffic.

Our 16'x30' deck is 24 years old and very weathered. This producet amazed me at how well it restored the decks appearance.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MikeF California Rustic dries to the color of Cedar
First, if you are shopping on line and color matching is important to you - STOP! The colors represented are many shades darker than when actually applied and dries. Not a big deal to me, but better to shop at the store and buy sample color if color is important. I bought the 5 gal size and paid 260 to have someone paint my 12 x 12 deck, stairs and railings. My goal was simple. Improve a 30 yo deck that had never seen stain or color in it's lifetime. I am a big fan of keeping maintenance free surfaces, just that, but this looked really sad. So I wanted to improve the looks, and get some more life out of the deck and to cover the splinters. Painter did not say it was difficult to apply or other issues. Only that it drank up paint, but to be expected on an unpainted 30 yo wood structure. Still some paint left. Deck is in shade most of day, so, the deck temp and outside temp were never above 80 degrees. Hand scraped roughest areas and painted. No pressure wash, no degrease etc,(although there was none). Took 7 hours first day, dried over night and returned next day and second coat took 3 hours has dried overnight and see for yourself. It did not cover holes or large cracks, but then I did not expect it to. Looks much better and no splinters I will wait 72 hours or longer before using it. No notice of white rising to surface or footprint issues, yet. I assume the foot prints are due to early use inside of 72 hours of curing time as it is still slightly tacky to the touch even this morning(day 3) no rain or heat over 80 as of now. Hoping the adherence issues many have cited are due to northern winter, time will tell. Seems to be great to me. Check the pix for your own decision. I would use again, just not buy it online(although home delivery is quick and convenient). I did not want the deck to "make a statement" and therefore chose a dark shade, but as stated it dried closer to the Cedar depiction than the CR depiction. It matches my brick perfectly, so no biggie, just more noticeable than I was going for!
But, for an investment price of 400 bucks, I think it was well spent, check pix to see of you agree.
