Rated 4 out of 5Â by Portlander Restore for decks
I have had a great experience with the Home Depot Restore product. I was able to claim used 2x6's for a deck project and saved about $1000. I started by pressure washing the deck and gave it 3 days to dry. I then put on two healthy coats (allowing to dry over night in between coats) and let it dry another 3 days. This deck is about 400 square feet and required 4 buckets (15 gallons). The manufacturer's coverage statement was inaccurate and the the roller cover fell apart during painting. Other than that this has been a great product. I spent $400 on a deck that is 400 sq. ft. and a year later is still looks great. No regrets.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Mike Best alternative to deck replacement
Best alternative to deck replacement:
- fills small cracks and secures splinters
- provides a non-slip surface wet or dry
- looks very nice in gray
- takes a couple of coats
- some roller brushes will hold up some will not so a spare is good.
- do NOT falll on the deck as the texture is like sandpaper

I was not satisfied with this product because it did not cover the square footage it claimed it would. The paint dried with streaking and the roller cover fell apart during painting, leaving behind small particles.

Used product in July 2011. I live in NJ and we did not have a rough winter. Product started chip by December by March the deck was a mess. Since I can not restain the deck I have to buy another 2 gallons to resurface again. Another issue is the product covers your screws and you can not lift a board if necessary. Does not cover the square footage the lable suggests.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Justin Dont replace your deck Restore it
If you follow the guidelines for application your deck will come out great. I am not a handy person and I thought it was easy. my 2 big dogs run all over the deck and it never leaves a mark or chips. only bad thing is the sq ft coverage is less than advertised. Saved me a lot of money not replacing my deck. almost 2 years old now and fading in color as well.
