Can this product be used on a trex deck?

Answer

Hi Cheyenne, thanks for writing in with your question. Yes, our Advanced DeckOver can be used on Trex decks. Just make sure to clean the surface with the All-In-One Wood Cleaner and allow the surface to dry before applying two coats. Good luck with your project! -Giovanna

Peeled off within months.
So got this for a temporary fix on an ugly deck. And it that temporary was waaaaaay shorter then expected. Used a few 5 gallon and then some gallon for touchups the first few months then gave up. Months i had peels a year was a mess and attached is two years later. I read Behr’s recommendation of sanding and touching up, yeah not going to waste any more on this. Pup in pic doesn’t scratch the floor if you are wondering. Damage was done all by it self.

Response from BehrApr 27, 2021
Hello Rojocapo, thank you for your review. I'm so sorry our DeckOver started peeling after only a few months. Since you prefer to use a different coating, I recommend removing any loose coating, cleaning the surface with our All-In-One Wood Cleaner, allowing the surface to dry, then applying a new solid color coating of your choice. I suggest looking at our Premium Solid Color Waterproofing Stain & Sealer, which can be applied over any remaining DeckOver. Customer satisfaction is important to us, and we appreciate your feedback. Please feel free to reach out to our Customer Care team directly for further assistance. Our team is happy to help you! -Joni Behr

I have yet to find out if the advance paint is going to stand up to the weather. The regular deck over lasted about 2 years before it started to peel up. It is a nice thick paint that will cover up a ton of imperfections.

We applied Smooth DeckOver Solid Stain, Dark Walnut Color, to approximately eight year old decking material, standard treated pine 5/4 x 6 boards. Stainless steel deck screws were used to ensure all boards were securely attached to joists below. Our home is elevated, near the coast but not directly on the water. This project consisted of front and rear porches as well as exterior front steps of the same construction. We followed the preparation and application directions exactly, using the specific products recommended for prep/app. The advertised coverage (always with two coats) was accurate. The finished product was smooth and attractive. The project was done during the last part of September, 2018. I am writing this review in mid-February of 2020, 17 months later. The front and rear porch floors are covered, but still open to the elements, mainly rain. Both still look good. The front steps are a different story. The stain has come off completely on most of the high-traffic areas, specifically on the leading edges of the stair treads. The product appears to just lose adhesion with the application of pressure from shoe soles sliding over the front edge of a step. Bottom Line: If you have a single-level FLOOR/DECK, DeckOver should hold up and still look good one-and-a-half years later. Note that the warranty is for one year. For STEPS: I would strongly recommend AGAINST the use of this product. Disclaimers: I cannot comment on the use of this product on concrete, as I used it only on wood decking material. I have no financial interest in any competitor's products. I have no experience with any competing "advanced coating" products. I have been a fan of Home Depot and BEHR paint products for many years. I am disappointed in the quality of this particular product, but will continue to be a frequent HD customer.

Response from BehrMar 2, 2020
Hi CarolinaGuy, thank you for your review, and I am sorry to hear most of the coating has come off on your front steps. To fix, we recommend sanding off any of the loose coating, clean the surface with our cleaner, and reapply the product. To help with this, please reach out to us directly; we'd love the opportunity to make things right. -Edith Behr

I wouldn’t use it
I have been dealing with peeling and blistering for a few years. I can’t clean anything off the surface. I will sand my whole deck to remove this product and go back to stain
by Bob B
Response from Doris, Behr Customer CareJun 3, 2021
Hi Bob,

Thank you for reviewing Behr DeckOver. I'm very sorry to hear ab out the bubbling and peeling issues experineced, as that's not what we want our customers to go through. I understand how disappointing this must be, and I want to help.

The loose DeckOver can be removed with a floor sander/grinder. Home Depot usually has great rental options available. After removing the loose areas and cleaning with Behr All-in-One Wood Cleaner, the surface should dry for at least 24 hours in dry weather before recoating. If there are DeckOver remnants left, they can be topcoated with a solid color wood stain.

I've emailed you directly to follow up and I look forward to assisting you.

Kindest regards,

Doris

The color looks like chalky glue. Isn’t it supposed to look like wood grain?

Horrible finish between cracks
I spent an entire weekend working on my deck. Wish I would have been playing with the kids instead. Prepped exactly as recommended. I rolled on 2 coats as instructed with coverage rate similar to recommended ( about 75 sq feet/gallon). Used a half inch nap. Ended up with ugly connecting pieces of paint between deck boards all over the deck. Went through 6.5 gallons between the deck and the spindles. Not sure what to do now, as cutting through these pieces with a knife does not really make them look any better. Huge waste of time and money unless behr can come up with a good solution.
by Kevin44
Response from Sara, Behr Customer CareMay 24, 2021
Hi Kevin44 - Thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear about the connecting pieces in between your boards! Typically, if you notice any connecting areas while the DeckOver is still wet, it's best to run a brush in between the boards to remove the excess product. If you need to remove these areas after the DeckOver has completely dried, we recommend using a utility tool or knife to cut through them. I've also reached out to you via email to learn more about your project and assist you with this further. Thank you again for submitting a review, and I hope to hear back from you! - Sara
Way too thick to apply with roller or brush
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought two 5-gallon buckets of Behr Premium Advanced Deckover. The consistency of the deckover was similar to thick tar. Both buckets were like this. Using a roller was fruitless - the roller would just roll over the surface and not pick up any deckover. The bristles on a brush would bend rather than penetrate the surface to pick up some deckover. Only a putty knife can get any deckover... just imagine how long it would take to finish a deck using a putty knife...
by Magnus
Response from Sara, Behr Customer CareMay 14, 2021
Hi Magnus - Thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that you're having trouble applying our Advanced DeckOver! This product should have a very thick consistency but should still flow smoothly from a stir stick once the DeckOver has been mixed for a few minutes. Instead of working from a paint tray, I recommend attaching a paint grid to your buckets. This will allow you to dip your roller into the product (and roll off any excess onto the grid) to ensure you have enough product on the roller. I've also reached out to you via email to assist you with this further. Thanks again for submitting a review, and I look forward to helping you get your project back on track. - Sara
Terrible Product!
I read all the reviews beforehand and what I learned was preparation was key. Spring of 2019 I power washed, used a deck cleaner and rented a sander and sanded the whole 16 x 20 deck. 5 days it took from prep to dry. Applied 2 coats and the next spring, it's bubbling up and peeling like old wallpaper. I worked so hard on this deck for this to happen. Will not use any Behr products again and I tell my friends to not use this brand as well. Pictures are attached - Rainy day in Ohio.

Hi Mudda - Thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear about the bubbling and peeling on your deck, especially after the work that went into your project! To fix the finish, I recommend removing the loose DeckOver, cleaning the bare spots with our wood cleaner, then touching up (or applying 2 new coats if this is happening to most of the surface). I've also reached out to you via email to learn more about your project and make this right. Thanks again for taking the time to write a review, and I hope to hear back from you. - Sara

Peeling/Chipping
This deck paint is great until it isn’t. After a year or so, It starts to peel and chip. You wouldn’t think it’s a big deal is kind of a high traffic area so you try to remove it and it’s near impossible. Their response to this is why I am writing this reply. A SANDER WILL NOT WORK TO REMOVE THIS. I’ve tried nearly everything a torch, sander, etc. the only way to get it off is chipping. Super frustrating that they recommend their products to put another coat in areas chipping. Well that would be nice if the entire thing wasn’t chipping. Do not buy this unless you only want it to last a short amount of time and have a couple of miserable weekends trying to remove it.
by LakeLife
Response from Joanne, Behr Customer CareMay 3, 2021
Hi LakeLife, thank you for your review. I'm so sorry the paint is peeling and chipping across the entire deck and that sanding isn't working. Since the peeling is widespread, I recommend removing the coating by sanding with coarse sandpaper like 40-60 grit sandpaper or a pressure washer on a low setting. Then you can clean the surface, let it dry, and apply a new coating of your choice. Customer satisfaction is important to us, and we appreciate your feedback. I'll reach out to you directly to assist you with this further. Thank you again for taking the time to share your experience with us, and I hope to hear from you soon! -Joni
