Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jnyoung What a disappointing mess!!
We bought our house last April (2015) and a brand new deck was installed prior to moving in. We chose this product because it was highly recommended by Home Depot and felt we would not have to worry about redoing for a couple of years. After a few months it began peeling off and bubbling everywhere! Our deck looks old and dilapidated like we've never taken care of it. I couldn't be more disappointed. We've been working the last few weeks trying to remove the rest with stain and paint remover only to damage the wood even further. We've spend 5 hours pressure washing, three gallons of stripper and countless time continuing to scrap and peel. I"m not even going to mention the damage to our lawn. Now we are somewhat close to sanding the splintered and gouged boards caused by all of this. I couldn't be more disgusted with this product. We also went to Home Depot to express our concern and was told, "Sorry to hear that, you might consider contacting the manufacturer." I do not recommend this product and strongly advise against it if you are considering. It was expensive, time consuming and turned into the worst decision. So so sad. I could cry every time I step outside.

Bought deck over to finish 22 year old treated lumber 14'x20' deck Wood was pretreated and cleaned as per instructions on the container and two coats were applied per instructions. After one winter the finish started to peel and crack. There were cracks in the wood (1/16th in width) which were filled with the deck over, however it looks like the finish cracked by the cracks in the wood causing water to get under the finish and causing it to peel off in sheets. Totally disappointed in the product. Wast of time and money.

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 Bob Behr Deckover Smooth Finish vs. Textured
I live in Bremerton, WA and we get a good share of rain here. We don't get much very cold weather, but it generally snows a few times each winter and can drop in the teens a few weeks per year. It also can get into the 90's for 30ish days per year in the summer months.
I used the smooth finish product over previously treated fir 2X6 decking. It hadn't been treated for at least 5 years prior to my using the Behr deckover product.
I used the Cape Cod Gray Smooth finish paint on my 600 sq ft deck after sanding and totally drying my wood. It peeled over 40% within the first winter. Totally dissatisfied and frustrated. I have used the Textured Cape Cod Gray on enclosed cargo trailer floors with good luck, though. So I pressure washed my peeling deck, sanded peeling spots, and let dry. I then applied the Cape Cod Gray TEXTURED product and it's been a good choice for me. It dries almost alike it has a hard plastic or even a concrete additive in it. I'm very happy so far with the TEXTURED PRODUCT. I'm waiting for next winter to come to confirm, but I'm confident it'll old up.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hineshill Great Product
Just used this on my 20 year-old porch that had been stained and painted. Had to do alot of scrapping before applying but it worked just as it said it would. Just don't buy too much. I covered almost 450 sq. ft with 5 gallons and did apply two coats. Had bought a second 5 gallons as I thought it was 375 sq. per 5 gallons. Couldn't return it so sold it to a friend. Best part is it cleans up with water!!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LAW Don't use BEHR on your deck!
We have always used Behr on interior projects and love it. We trusted that the deck over would be a great product and give us a well protected deck....WRONG! It has peeled and you can't get it off. We spent hours scraping and have decided to dig the paint out of the screws and flip the boards. If you are trying to decide if you should use this product (or similar products...rustoleum, olympic, etc) DON'T do it!!

Followed all directions and after 2 months the whole deck was peeling now after a winter our deck looks awful it has peeled up everywhere. We are going to try the rustoleum product next just for this year and see how it goes anything is better than this. Complete waste of time and money. I wish I could attach a picture for anyone considering this product.

We painted our large deck with this paint last summer. This spring it started bubbling up and by mid summer it was peeling off in big strips. Painting it on is like painting with mud and is very time consuming. It took us weeks to complete but we thought it would be worth it in the end. Spent well over $400 on the paint and it didn't even last a year!
