Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 217 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst purchase ever! We applied Deckover to our large deck and our garden boxes during late summer/early fall. By winter, we could already see some bubbling and the paint coming off. By the following summer, the deck looked pretty bad, with patches of paint missing. Two summers later, almost all the paint has bubbled off. We will have to scrape off the paint and start all over. The picture is without any scraping...So much for the guarantee! May 30, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. April 12, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst Purchase ever My opinion this product is not worth you time and money May 11, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by awful Product not only too hot to walk on no matter light or dark. - after one year even new wood is splitting under paint- Product should not be used in Florida and I put three coats of this on. Now I have to figure out how to get it off. June 22, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Exactly as advertised. We repainted a 1200 sq ft outdoor deck, and we extremely pleased with the product. Problem areas in the wood were nicely covered by the paint. We covered it with 2 coats and expect it to last for several years. Would certainly recommend! September 5, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EXCELLENT COVERAGE, GREAT COLOR = AWESOME RESULTS!!! I wanted to bring our pool deck back to life, after seeking for several options, my wife and I liked the pattern that was on our cool deck but only after 2 1/2 years of built, the mainteneance required to have it good looking were way to much. (Living in Puerto Rico and receiving lots of rain it required constant preasure washing in order to avoid mold to acumulate in the pattern design). We decided to try the Behr Deck Over and it broght our deck back to life! It looked great after the first coat but when we put in the second coat it looked even better!!! Our deck looks good as new and we love how easy is to clean this; it is not slippery when wet (a plus for a pool deck) but it is easy on your feet at the same time! several advises from our end, I had a 800 sqft area and purchased four 5 Gal. paint we used 3 1/2, this paint is very thick and it has a strong odor when you open the paint. (not a problem for us since we were painting our deck in an open area). Start early in the morning since it is not recommended to be applied in temperatures of over 90 degrees. In our case we waited 24 hours between coats in order to allow them to dry evenly between each other. Since it is very thick it takes a while and a little effort to apply, but trust me you will love the results. This was an excellent weekend project for my wife and I. We love been in the outdoors and with a great inviting deck this is a dream come truth!!!! July 29, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Total waste of money! After applying the product, my deck looked brand new. I was so excited. But just after 9 months, the paint is peeling. I am so disappointed. I spent over $300 on paint which was suppose to last at least 5 years! I am very disappointed and hope that Behr provides some kind of relief. So far all I have been told is email my receipt and the will give me more product....hello....I want a refund, not more junk to put on my deck!!!! Home depot won't help, said I need to work with Behr. Behr does not want to refund, I do not want anymore of their junk! My neighbor on each side used Olympic several years ago and still looks great...wish I had asked earlier, saved me money, time, labor! May 8, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Would never use it again! I applied this product approximately 12 months ago, to two decks. Both decks were prepared using Behr Deck Cleaner and a pressure washer. I applied the product in the shade, but coverage was a constant issue. I have used almost used 10 gals to cover what 7 - 8 gals should have covered (according to product specs and instructions), and have only put down one coat. I used the correct brush/roller, and in fact, I have spent nearly $50 in brushes and rollers. There is also significant peeling and cracking. I spent over $320 on this product, and it was a big waste of money. The one positive is, if you want to re-finish your deck again, all you have to do is PEEL the deckover tools or paint remover required. June 8, 2015
