a couple of years ago I coated 2 porches on my house that were unfinished treated wood showing some signs of wear with deckover. I didn't use their cleaner prior to the coating but did a meticulous job of pressure washing the porches. I let it dry for 3 days and did 2 coats of deckover. There weren't a lot of cracks to fill in but the ones that were there responded well with heavy coats. Within less than a year certain spots that saw the most sun during the summer started to come up. Overall I liked the finish as it gave a bit of slip resistance but was troubled by the failure of the product even though the areas of failure were fairly small. This stuff in not at all inexpensive so I expected better. I made a comment or two to a Home Depot employee in the paint dept. and he was not very polite in his response. He insinuated that I didn't know what I was doing and that I obviously didn't properly prepare the surface. I'm well over 60 and have done a lot of painting inside and outside of various homes and cabins I have owned. I have tried various brands and quality levels of paints and was mostly successful and satisfied with most. When I did have a problem and brought the problem up to the vendor where I bought the paint in question my problem was pretty much always dismissed as improper surface prep. In my younger days I might have taken shortcuts but learned my lessons early on so I usually spend a fair amount of time and effort to make sure my work was worthwhile. This spring we added a handicap ramp for my wife's sister who was coming to visit and could not do stairs for various reasons. The ramp was built with treated lumber and left to cure for several months. I decided to hire the painting job out to a professional painter who had done some work for me a few years ago. I specified what product I wanted to use(Deckover) and told him I wanted him to use their prewash product. I can be verified that I bought the cleaner and the Deckover from Home Depot in Brandon, MS. I watched to be sure he did a good job of prepping the wood before coating. He used the cleaner and a brush and scrubbed the wood thoroughly. He let the wood sit for several days before coming back and applying the Deckover. He finished sometime around June and it looked great. A few weeks ago my wife complained to me that the stuff was starting to peel off in a couple of spots. I started paying closer attention to it and now I'm seeing more and more spots where the finish is just chipping/peeling off(coming off in 4" pieces). I gave this product a second chance because it was suggested that my preparation for the first time wasn't done properly. I have refinished decks before and pressure washing was all that was needed for a satisfactory and durable coating with a much less expensive product but I wanted to be sure that this time I did specifically as required and the deckover didn't even last more than a few months without peeling away. This is a very overpriced and unsatisfactory product and an expensive lesson.

We cleaned our large deck as per instructions, applied the coating as per instructions, and one year later the coating is peeling up from the deck, not in one or two spots but all over our deck. All the money spent on this coating was a waste and so was the high price of labor to install it on our previously beautiful deck. I believe Behr should have to return all our expenses to us including the cost of this coating and the cost of removing it and replacing it on our decks.

It shows dirt. The guy at Home Depot said it doesn't have a sealant in it to protect it from dirt so the dirt wears into it and stays .

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!

After my recent review of this product, Joshua from Behr Web Customer Care reached out to me to address my issues. After answering a few short questions we were able to come to agreement. I might not recommend this product, but I do appreciate the time and effort Behr's representative took to try to make things right. I am grateful there are still companies out there that care about their customers and put forth the effort to make them happy.

Do not waste your time or money. Cleaned and prepared deck exactly as directed. Less then one month later, deck floor began to peel. So disgusted we decided not to do anything until we returned back up North this summer. We returned to a deck that over 1/2 the paint peeled off. I called Behr and the sent me another 5 gallons of paint, 2 gallons of deck cleaner and told me to purchase 7 gallons of paint remover and they would reimburse me. Really don't want to go thru months of work again. Think I will stain it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chip BEHR Permium DeckOver worked as advertised on my Deck
I used BEHR CEDAR NATURALTONE WOOD and CONCRETE PAINT on my weather exposed deck. I had to replace about half of the 14 year old boards so I needed a product that would help improve the remaining life of the existing boards and match up with the newly installed ones. BEHR PREMIUM DECKOVER did this nicely. Proper preparation of the wood before application was as just as important with BEHR as any other product on the market to obtain the overall desired success upon completion. My only complaint with the BEHR PREMIUM DECKOVER was the color I chose(did not check color samples beforehand). More of a butterscotch pudding color than a natural cedar tone(house color). Clean up was easy with water. I would definitely use BEHR PERMIUM DECKOVER again.

We were advised by the Home Depot Rep in paint section that Deck Over is the best on the market for your deck. Will last for a very long time and is very durable. After two months of application paint was bubbling and chipping away from wood. Cracks were not concealed. To be such and expensive product it was very disappointing. not even a year in we already have to repaint the deck. Product does not hold its value. Very Very unsatisfied!
