Answer: 
Nope, WAYYYYYY to thick. Apply with a 3/8 nap roller or brush (4X restore). Don't use the 10X restore roller w/4X restore.
Also, do NOT thin this product

absolutely not..the thickness of the product is like mud, not paint. You cant even use a regular roller, theres a special roller for it.
Also read the reviews carefully and consider that many of us who have used the product are extremely dissatisfied with it after a year..Many of us have had the experience of it working great..until about a year, when it all begins to chunk off leaving a worse mess of your deck than before you used it. Ive contacted Rustoleum directly and they want the receipts (a year later so im still looking for that one home depor receipt) They will also claim its not the product, it you or your deck. They advertise it to restor an old deck..but when it doesnt work, they say its because its an old deck. (Who has an old deck that hasnt has something else applied to it in the past?) Its a bad product, in my opinion, and many others opinions on here. I would have given it 5 stars after 1 month, 3 stars after 6 months, and 1 star after a year. I cant emphasize enough..dont be tempted, you'll be sorry..".too good to be true" usually isnt true, and that axiom applies to this product. Read Less

Hello Debb!
Thank you for your question! Since you 200 square feet, you should only need 1- 5 gallon bucket. :)
If you are planning on updating or freshening up the railing and spindles, Restore Stain can be tinted to the same color as the deck cover. It isn't as thick, so it goes further. 1 gallon of stain covers around 350 square feet.
Here is the link to the stain: Read More

Rated 2.6 out of 5 by 75 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 4 years and still great I'm not sure why all the negative reviews, perhaps the product has changed. I resurfaced my deck in 2012 with the original Restore and 4 years later it still looks great. I live in Michigan where we experience both hot summers and quite a bit of snow fall. I went out today to patch some small areas for the first time. One section about 1 X 2 inches and the other about 2 X 2 inches, also some small 1/4 inch patches. And some area around the steps up to the deck due to nicks by the lawn mower. That is all after four years. My deck was 24 years old when I restored it and in pretty bad condition and large, about 700 sq ft plus flat top benches instead of railings. To patch, I used product that I had saved from the original ( in an airtight container covered on the surface with plastic wrap) and the color match was near perfect. So, no fading either. We power wash the deck about once or twice a year to clean and remove mold since some areas are in the shade. Yes, we power wash the Restore finished deck. The only negative for me is that the matching stain I used between the boards has not held up as well so you can see some contrasting wood between boards. But after 4 years of maintenance free I cannot complain. We originally thought that we would have to replace the deck at great expense, so this product was a huge money saver. All I can say is that the product I purchased in 2012 has absolutely lived up to its promises. June 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I LOVE DECK RESTORE FROM FORT WORTH TEXAS Being a woman 60 yrs old, I painted the deck.Now, the wood was still in good condition & was the reason why I wanted to try this product. At the time this product was not yet rated & fairly a new product on the market. I read about how & why it was created, so NO reviews were available at the time of my purchase. I was TIRED of painting my deck every other year with a stain & read about this product. the deck was 4 yrs old when I first painted the deck. I have been in my home 9 years. The deck is 8 years old & I did a light touch up last year with some old deck restore I had in my garage. The deck & railing is all in perfect shape thanks to this product. I also used it on a old cedar fence to keep it until I could put up a new fence. I had a beautiful board on board cedar fence put up last year & I plan on painting this new fence with the deck restore. In the Texas area severe HAIL in 2016 & Deck restore has NOT one pit/crack from the large hail we have experienced. It was hitting my windows so hard during a storm I thought they were all going to bust. I have small dents on the metal gutters but not on the deck. READ the instructions before applying & sand areas that may have mold/mildew. YOU WILL HAVE A NICE LOOKING DECK fairly maintenance free. April 26, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Peeling after six months We were very excited to use this product on our porch surrounding our home. Prior to purchase, we watched all of the Youtube videos on proper application of the paint. We utilized the Rustoleum primer as per the instructions also. After applying two coats (fifteen gallons of paint, not including primer), our porch looked incredible. Six months later, it is peeling off in huge sections. Incredibly disappointing! August 2, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by WASTE OF MONEY! After talking to the salesman about our 28' x 36 ' deck, He told us the 4x would be great and help restore the look and make it last long. One question my wife had was if we go with a lighter color paint would it help with the heat- he said without a doubt. Now, the deck is so hot that we can not even walk on it, we have to put rugs down to just get up to our pool. Every time we move a piece of furniture on the deck it lifts the paint, It is hard to clean off. The deck looked so much better before we spend several hundred dollars to "improve it" . We can no longer sit around the pool without having to put several towels down and our dog refused to walk on it. We are looking for a solution to try to reduce the heat so if anyone has found a solution besides stripping the entire deck of the finish . PLEASE SHARE! I never use to read reviews- I WILL NOW! August 5, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Stay away from this. This product didn't even last a full year before peeling. Biggest waste of money, expected to at least get a few years out of it. August 15, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 2x Rust-Oleum used from Home Depo This product peeled and cracked within 2 months. not good for high traffic or low traffic areas. I wouldn't purchase. July 6, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Terrible experience with Rust-Oleum deck coat I would advise against this product. My husband and I spent over $600 on this product when we bought our house. We also took the time to watch the video and learn to apply it correctly. It also took much more paint than expected, we had to return to Home Depot twice to buy more. After our first winter, we had unattractive chipping. Now two years later, parts of our deck are rotting. Our deck was in good condition when we bought the house and at the store we were convinced that this product would keep it that way. Our deck is now in worse condition. This product seemed to age our deck terribly. We were very unhappy with this product. I'm not the type to complain.. but wanted others to know that this product did not work out well for us at all. May 29, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Terrible Product I actually used the 10x product. This is absolutely the worst product. I followed all of the instructions to the letter. Product looked incredible for the first few months. Cracks and pealing started shortly after. I have tried scraping/sanding but the deck is a loss. i will not repaint. I will need to replace the decking. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT...CHECK OUT YOUTUBE WITH SIMILAR STORIES. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT....DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT...DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT. June 21, 2016
