Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by happycamper Outstanding!
Although this product is intended for outdoor use, we were desperate for something that would handle our horrendous basement floor. We had pulled up foam-backed carpeting which left a nightmare of foam and adhesive that had to be treated and scraped. Once we got it as good as it was going to get, and after much discouragement, we tried Restore and got our miracle. After only one coat, as pictured, it covered beautifully with only a few hours of moderate effort. We couldn't be more pleased. Thanks, Rustoleum!

This stuff is awesome. Covers splits in the wood. Fills in pits and screw heads. Makes a worn 12 year old deck floor look like new. It is great. Very thick product. I little difficult to work with but well worth the final result. Against the advise of the Home depot paint department, We cheated and used a 3/8" Nap paint roller for the second coat. They said it wouldnt work but we wanted a smoother final finish. it turned out awesome! Very, very happy.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Parrycrew Doesn't last
We have a large covered deck that was stained originally (at least ten years ago). It looked very poor when we bought the house, so we thoroughly pressure washed the deck and let it dry. A few days later we spent an entire weekend painting the deck, railings, support poles, everything... with this product and it looked beautiful. It is very hard to use, as it is so thick and textured. It takes a lot of product (we went through 6 or 8 buckets) and covers you head to toe with splatter, as well as any surrounding areas. It was a miserable experience, but it looked so nice that we got lots of compliments and our contractor friends were even impressed enough to recommend it to their clients. That was August of 2013. By January, we noticed the paint chipping off of the deck. It is now April 2014 (only 8 months after painting) and it looks horrible! And the deck is not used at all in the winter! It basically sat untouched all season long and started to peel by itself. You can run your finger across any finished area it and it just chips right off like nothing. An approximately $800 project that was miserable to do in the first place just got even worse and I have no idea how we could ever get ALL of the remaining texture off support beams and railing and steps, etc... This product is expensive junk. Save yourself the hassle and stain your deck or find a better more reliable paint.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jul22 Terrible product! Do not buy!
We put this on our one year old deck last summer. By spring the paint was peeling up all over the deck. We spent $450 on this paint in which we had to turn around and scrape off. Very disappointing. Do not buy!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Poolguy This is a great alternative to deck or concrete replacement
The product is expensive however it does exactly what it claims to do. Coverage is about as advertised and two coats is definately needed. I used it to resurface a damaged concrete patio. I had used patching cement to fix the major damage. Restore covered both the new and old surface flawlessly and now you would never know it was damaged. It is a little challenging to apply. I would recommend dipping the roller directly into the 5 gallon bucket rather than using a rolling pan. Also, use a high quality roller as the product is thick and heavy and will destroy cheap rollers. Too bad I learned that after finishing the first coat. Anyway, it looks great and I expect it to be very durable. If it lasts as long as advertised this is well worth the cost and effort to apply.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RustOleumCisappointedCus Do not purchase the Rust-Oleum Deck and Concrete "Restore" product
Do not purchase the Rust-Oleum Deck and Concrete "Restore" product that is sold at Home Depot. We installed it on my mother's deck and the part that was covered had no issues, but on the uncovered part of the deck, the product peeled off. My mother wrote Rust-Oleum and provided pictures of the deck. There was no response from Rust-Oleum. This lack of customer service is very disappointing after spending $300 on a product that does not work as advertised.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Spenco Great Product
I painted my deck 2 years ago and it still looks great. My deck had not been maintained in many years before I bought this house. the deck had cracked badly. This product not only filled the cracks it also stopped spintering.

Worth every penny and it looks awesome on. Not as bad to put on as others have stated. Any staining or project like this takes effort but it was not that bad. So glad we did it!
