Customer Questions & Answers

what is the best product to use

I replaced my deck boards but not the spindles and rails. should I use the newer thicker stain on the walking surface boards and reg stain on the spindles and rails ?
Asked by: Kris
Hi Kris, Thanks for writing in, and great question! The type of product you use will depend on the finish you're looking for. For example, if you prefer a smooth finish on the spindles and rails, then the Solid Color Wood Stain is a great option. On the other hand, if the spindles and rails are very cracked and weathered, then Deckover is a better option since it will fill in small cracks and leave a textured finish. Hope this helps, and good luck on your project!

5 gal. #SC-152 Red Cedar Wood and Concrete Coating is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems to work as advertised, but color was not what I expected. My deck is over 20 years old and after a really good pressure washing the product seems to be working as advertised. I just finished the first coat and got better that the 50 sq. ft. coverage. Application was more difficult than expected because the product is so thick (almost a paste) so I had to use a 4" brush instead of a roller. I'm going to try the roller again for the second coat once the rain stops. The actual color was not as bright as the sample on the web page which was disappointing. I going to take a can to the local HD and see if we can do something about that.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money This stuff is horrible! Applied this product 2 years ago and it is peeling off already !

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Expected more We had our condo's deck professionally pressure washed and painted using the Behr coating. The wood was bone dry when applied and it looked great for the first year then started peeling. Now less than 2 years later, it's just falling off wherever people walk. I expected a lot more durability from this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Thought it was just me! I purchased this product when it first came out- thought my prayers had been answered. The concept was EXACTLY what I was looking for for my old deck. I cleaned, prepared, dried the decking and applied two coats of this product. It looked amazing. Then, the following spring, huge chunks of the paint were peeling off- very easily. Now it is a disaster. I LOVE Behr paint, and would not use anything else on my walls inside the house. I chose this product based on the success I had with the brand, but was hugely disappointed in this product. DO NOT USE!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointment My deck was two years old last fall when I purchased this product. The sales girl assured me this was the correct product for my deck. Purchased the special washing formula, washed and let the deck dry. Applied product following all directions, including applying two coats. Less than a year later it is peeling and looks terrible. So now I am faced with figuring out how to get it off so that I can figure out something else to put on the deck. It looked great for first couple of months but does not stand up to the weather. I have tried contacting Home Depot on this issue but none of their phone numbers or chats address this particular situation. My nearest store is over 60 miles away and that is the one that sold me this poor product. Very disappointed!! Had used Behr paint for my entire house, inside and out, three years ago when the house was built. That product has done well and I have no complaints. But this product is not working me and is causing me more work and expense than I had planned. Disappointed that Home Depot has such lousy customer service contact that you can't connect with anyone on this type of issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Improved My Patio 100% I used this product on my 20+ year old raw concrete patio and it looks brand new. I expected there were going to be coverage issues in that the old concrete would just drink in the paint, but I covered approx 200 s.f. with 2 1/2 gal of paint applying 2 coats. The clean up was just soap and water and as easy as a latex paint. I only have one issue with this paint and that is the fumes. I was outdoors and perfectly safe with a breeze blowing, but man the smell of ammonia was strong, kind of like Baby Hueys diaper pail. You will probably want to use a breathing mask like I should have done. They tell me there is no smell now that it's dry, but I'm going to be smelling ammonia for a while. That aside, I'm very pleased with the product and the finished project. I would recommend this for anybody with a tired old patio surface. The color really adds something.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works great!!! I used this on 20 plus year old wood steps and the steps are stronger, repel water, make splintered wood smooth. Wonderful product. Product is thick which it needs to be do I would buy one of the special rollers to apply and a paint brush you wouldn't mind losing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use looks great I needed to do something with my very old deck it easy looking terrible. I wanted a product that would last be easy to use but designed for this type of thing. material is thicker than regular paint. I I did not want it to look painted so I only did one coat and rolled it on thin . Love the new look.
