Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by EDDIE Worst Product ever made...
This product in very difficult to put on, also it will mildew, I purchased 12 gallons, and the next year it had major mildew problems and discolor. Company gave me 6 gallons free to go back over. I did and next year, it was discolored, with some mildew, after 2 days of cleaning it was OK. This year it was a brown tint and would not clean up. Used power washer to clean and it knocked off the 3rd coat and was good underneath, however, it also knocked some of the first two coats off. Now I am going to power wash every bit of it, and buy something that works. I am out already over $1,000 and will probably spend an additional $500 to DO IT RIGHT, WITH A GOOD PRODUCT. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT

Great - we added a new deck on our place in northern Michigan and stained it with the 10x. 3 years later it still looked like new. We decided to use it on our 10 year old deck at home. I power washed the deck, used the recommended deck cleaner. The Terrible- it looked good the 1st summer but the next spring it peeled off in large pieces. I would recommend it on new un-stained wood, but will never use it again on a deck that has been stained .

After taking the time to follow all of the directions on surface preparation we applied two coats of the x10 to the deck of our home.. it looked great for the rest of the summer.
This spring I stepped out and found cracking, places where 6"x12" slabs of the paint was just sliding off. This was happening all over the three deck areas. I'm at a loss about what to do at this point. We are getting the house ready to sell in April and the weather (temperature) won't be warm enough to re-coat with this product. This leaves only one option and that is full removal from all of the deck surfaces as well as the deck railing.
If you live in a cold climate like we do, think twice and then thrice about using this product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Cathy Soooo Disappointed in this product!!!!!!
So much time on prepping the old deck and followed the directions for cleaning. Applied first coat on completely dried deck, in the shade, 75 degree morning. Had to buy another 4 gallon bucket. Applied 2nd coat, day 2.. Another beautiful fall day in the Chicago area. Morning shade. We loved it. Looked great. Happy. Then winter came.... it looks horrible now...... I'm sickened and disappointed!! I busted my butt. Back pain from bending over preparing, rolling, and rolling again. Pain was worth the result, but the result did not last a year!! Rustoleum needs to refund my money and pay for someone to pressure wash this Restore flaking mess off my deck now!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by nicolevetz2 Do Not Buy - Looks good Initially but after a year it is a total nightmare
I am very disappointed in this product. It has not even been 2 years and this is what my deck looks like - peeling, bubbling. We painted over 1k sq. ft. Our deck is ruined. This is supposed to be the stuff that lasts 10 yrs. I have filed a complaint with Rustoleum... lets see if they stand by their guarantee and fix my deck. In the mean time, I do not recommend this product at all. Very Disappointing!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Trent Poor adhesion just one year, most of this is coming off!
I followed the instructions explicitly, I degreased I made sure it was clean and dry.. I applied this to concrete steps.. in just one year it's all flaking off.. the problem now is it's a real mess.. I'm sure that not all of it will come off so I'll have some most peeling this year, then some the next, I might have to sand blast it off to fully purge this stuff from the concrete..

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Schreff Worst Experience in my life Restore/Rustoleum isn't making good for their bad batches.
We followed the Rustoleum instructions perfectly, used their remover along with power washing and testing the deck. My wife and I are 69 years old and did it ourselves. We had sore backs, etc. for weeks but thought it was worth it as it was beautiful for 3 months.
Next, we went away to avoid the winter. Upon our return 3 months later the Restore was peeled off in many spots and everytime we step on it it flakes more. We visited Home Depot and they told us that Rustoleum would replace and settle for the Restore Nightmare. They gave us a paper from Rustoleum on who to contact and we did. They made us measure the deck, send pictures and send receipts?????
This was over two weeks ago and we still have heard nothing from Rustoleum's Customer Service. Next, if they do not fix their BAD BATCH PROBLEM we will contact our Attorney General's Senior Hot Line along with our attorneys. We just cannot use our deck along with removing the faulty Restore and replacing it with something else.
Beware of Restore. Also, Home Depot told us that they have completely changed the product to alleviate the BAD BATCH RESTORE.
