    Q:You previously stated in an earlier question to apply to coats of Ames Elasto Barrier prior to the Safe-T-Deck if the intention is to waterproof plywood. Is Safe-T-Deck not considered waterproof?
    by|Jan 9, 2024
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Safe-T-Deck can waterproof surfaces like concrete but it is more of a deck coating than a waterproof coating. Ideally, to waterproof a plywood deck you should use the Elasto Barrier first.

          Better than expected
          This product is great. The deck is over 30 years old. When it rains it is very slippery and does not get a lot if sun. I was looking for something to help with the slipperiness and bring the deck back to life. This was very easy to work with, even being very thick. This filled in some of the cracks. Not expecting miracles on a deck this old. Color was a little more red than I expected for cocoa brown, but it looks great with the brick. Maybe the change I needed! Great stuff! Will use again.

            Far exceeded my expectations! There will be no slipping on our deck or ramp this coming winter...or many more to come. Seems very durable and difficult to get off you hands when it's dry, so it should stay where it is put. It's like sticking your roller in a bucket of pudding, but dries with an outstanding non-slip surface. See attached pics.

            Not for the South!
            I had real high hopes with all the positive reviews. I professionally prepped my deck (pressure washed), applied primer coat, and 2 coats of top safe t seal. This stuff is not forgiving...it gets dirty so easily and stays that way unless you hose off the dirt. You can see all imperfections in the wood applied to and barely fills medium cracks as stated. The deck took 2 weeks to stop feeling sticky/tacky. Now, the paint has bubbles in it. This stuff will not last. Much worse, the heat from this paint radiates. I have a temp gun and the delta in temp from grass to wood is 68’ on hot sunny day. Yes a 68 increase when the sun hits this wood! You can feel the heat and it makes sitting on the deck miserable. If your thinking of repair or replacement. I vote replace. Now I wish I wouldve spent the money on replacing my deck in entirety..Avoid this product if you live in warm climates. Very dissatisfied with the product and it hasnt even been a month.

                This stuff is awesome. I am a novice at painting & with youtube help, it worked really well. More sky blue than grey, it still looked good and thickly covered issues to be forgiving to a novice. We had immediate rain & flood conditions for several days within 24 hours of completing the work and it still looked good (see photo) & wasn’t slick to walk on once the rain stopped. Highly recommend.

                WOW!! I ordered this safe-t-deck because the first product I was interested in was not available. I have to say so far I am very impressed. It is very thick, but easy to apply. It went on easily and the before and after is excellent. I don't know how this will hold up, but I have enough left over to apply multiple coats. I have a 200 sq ft deck and didn't even use a third of the bucket. The non skid seems to be very good and not uncomfortable to walk on. Very happy with the end results.

                  Just put down 2 coats on 1 and 2 September 2019. Thick like pudding. Looks great. I'll need at least 2 years, and maybe 5 years, to see how it holds up. This porch deck has been difficult to maintain because it catches so much South Carolina sun and humidity. I earlier applied 2 coats of Ames Elasto-Barrier primer in preparation, and before that replaced a number of tongue-in-groove deck boards.
