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 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!!

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!!!

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 TT Poor Product - Difficult to apply - Peels Quickly
Product is extremely difficult to apply. Is too thick to apply with roller. If you are successful applying with a roller the product leaves a textured surface. We were finally able to apply with a 4" brush. Use of a brush drastically extends the time required.
We power washed the deck and just prior to application re-sprayed deck with garden hose and spray attachment. We allowed several days to dry and started application. Several sections of deck started to peel within a month. At the point of this review the product has been on for about 9 months. It is peeling at many locations on deck.
I would not recommend the use of this product. As Review Title states it is very difficult to apply and then does not stick to decking. I am extremely dissatisfied.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by richjb54 Does NOT Do the Job
Did my deck with Behr Deckover last Fall. Looked great for a while. On new boards, it worked like a champ, but on the older boards it neither filled in the minor cracking nor did it adhere properly. We DID fully clean the deck prior to applying, so that is not the problem. It just does not do what it is supposed to do - that is to restore old decks like new. Going to touch up the deck, but eventually will have to sand it all off and re-do with probably a solid color stain or something else. Extremely disappointed!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ConservativeConsumer Good product, but not too easy to work with.
The coating creates almost compound board looks to a deck, which is nice. However, the product shall be applied when many conditions are met - air humidity, quality of deck preparation is ideal, dryness of deck boards, deck is in the shade and so on. The product is so thick that it is hard to get in between boards, in cracks and other spots like that. Two layers shall be done which extends project time Significantly - especially if weather conditions are not ideal for an extended period of time.

Chips started appearing in my deck within a month. The product was applied under the right conditions. One year on the deck looks worse than before. DO NOT BUY!!!!
