Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Calvin Awesome Stuff!
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 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!

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 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 RH53 Not long lasting
I bought this product last spring. I liked the color and thickness of this deck restorer and I had no problem with the application. It only lasted about 6 months and then started flaking off like really old paint. I now will have to restore my deck with something else and may just go with deck paint because I painted my railing with deck paint and it is not cracking or pealing at all. In conclusion, I had high hopes for this product but it didn't last as well as it said it would. I cannot recommend this product at all.

I used this on my deck and it didn't even last one year. When you try to get answers for rustolium they just give you a run around and hope you forget about it because they forget about you. Forget about getting your money back. Now I have seen three decks that have used this product and all of the have blistered and are pealing in less than a year.

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BOATER Very happy Deck like new
Used Restore on my 10 year old wooden boat dock deck. It filled in all the cracks in the wooden planks making the deck look better than when it was new. Had used a solid stain before and it lasted about 3 years. It seems this will protect the planks better as the water can no longer get in the cracks. Not sure how well it will hold up in the Florida sun but I will do another review if I am not pleased. Make sure to have HD give this paint a good shake and use within 4 days.
