Answer This Question

A:  Hello Texaspj, Thanks for reaching out. The DeckOver is a great product for pool decks. Depending on the color, the heat absortion can vary. Please be aware that darker colors absorb more heat than lighter colors. Colors absorb or reflect different wavelengths of light. The more light a color absorbs the more heat it will retain. Black for example, absorbs all wavelengths and reflects none, and therefore will build up more heat than lighter/whiter colors. I hope this information helps. Good luck on your project. Best, Roxana N.

        Q:Do you need to sand old pAint off deck before putting deck over on?

        Answer This Question

        A:  My recommendation is that you don't use DeckOver in the first place. You will get more mileage from a solid waterproof stain. DeckOver is the worst product I have ever purchased from HD and although I am a Behr fan, this product is terrible. Take it back, throw it away and call it a loss, but do not put this stuff on your deck. You'll thank me next year and for years to come.

        A:  HI WE POWER WASHED THE DECK FIRST

        by|Feb 18, 2018

          A:  Hi Bf! Thanks for writing in with your question! If the current paint is peeling, it's important to sand off as much of the loose coating as possible; this will help DeckOver stick to a sound surface and give it a long lasting finish. On the other hand if the paint is in good condition, sanding it off is not necessary. Instead, clean with the deck with something like No. 63 All in One Cleaner (assuming the deck is wood), and recoat once the surface is dry. Hope this helps, and good luck on your project! Best, Jeanette P.

              A:  Hi Rick, thank you for your question. You should wait until the deck is completely dry before staining. It also depends on weather conditions. Be sure to follow all back label instructions and best of luck on your project.

                Does Not Last
                Prepared the deck with the deck cleaner and let it dry. Applied two coats of Deckover to the deck and it looked wonderful. After the winter, only 8 months later, it has peeled off everywhere. It did not adhere to the deck whatsoever. It is an extreme waste of time and money as it does not hold up to a CT winter.

                Love it
                I just moved into a foreclosure and our covered deck needed some touch up to fix some peeling paint. I power washed the deck 1st but was worried because there was still paint peeling off before I applied deck over. The color matched up perfectly and it looks great. I only wanted a light coat so I used a small cabinet roller that I had in the garage. It went on strong and quick and really turned out great. I haven't seen any paint peeling yet, and I was worried but it seems to be a very strong covering. I used less than a gallon on my 18x14 porch so I was very pleased. Recommend!

                A paint capable of covering a multitude of sins (natural and accidental)
                Living in Southwest FL, we endure high humidity, summer torrential rains (daily), flying white sands, and extreme sun nearly year-round. This year we had an unusually long rainy season which did a number on the outdoor paint to our home. We used the BEHR Premium DeckOver Padre Brown Wood and Concrete Paint to re-paint the concrete front entrance way of our home. It came out beautifully (see the before and after photos). This is a quality paint, is thick, and dries very quickly. Because it's so thick, it required nearly 2-gallons to complete this area with two coats. This paint poured easily and was easy to apply. The paint has a very strong ammonia odor, so recommend using a mask or use only in spaces with plenty of air/ventilation to prevent illness. Also, because the paint has a thick consistency, and dries really fast, you'll need to be hasty about applying it (especially in hot regions). Otherwise, it's great for regular wear and tear, weather beaten concrete and wooden decks, or other areas of your home that are highly visible, used frequently, and need high-quality paint.

                Revived My Deck
                I used this product on a 10-15 year old deck that hadn't been treated in any way for the last 3 years. I thoroughly cleaned the deck first with Behr Premium All In One Deck Cleaner & then set about giving my deck a facelift. This paint is VERY thick - the color & consistency reminds me of brownie batter. I started with the railings & used a 2" brush to paint those. I applied paint fairly liberally and one coat was sufficient on the vertical surfaces. Once I got to the floor, I used the Wagner Flexio 590 to apply the DeckOver. It has to be cranked up as high as it will go & its spray isn't quite as thick as it is with thinner paints, but it does work - quite well actually. I adjusted the spray until it would cover the width of one board & worked my way across the deck one board at a time. Using the sprayer gave me nice, even coverage, but I discovered that if you want to really get it to fill in the cracks, you have to go over some areas with a brush (I think this would also be the case with a roller, but maybe not). So, after the first coat had dried, I went back over the cracked areas with a paint brush (small cracks - most were 1/8" or less) & then applied a second coat to the whole deck 48 hours later. I was already planning on a second coat, but just FYI: if you go back over some areas with a paint brush, you can tell a difference in the texture & it will be noticeable from certain angles, so if you are going to fill in cracks, do that first or between coats. After the second coat, I kept foot traffic off it for 48 hours. After that, it weathered the first few days beautifully, but we didn't have any rain. After a few days & reading numerous complaints about paw prints, I intentionally poured water on some red clay mud underneath the lower deck, stuck my dog's front paws in it & directed him up the stairs to the upper deck. Obviously the paw prints stuck out like a sore thumb (see photos), but that's what you get if you're picking a dark color. I was mostly interested in how they would clean off, so I let the paw prints dry over the next 3 or 4 hours and then returned to clean them off. I first tried just trying to brush them off with a dry deck brush. That had virtually no effect. I then wet the brush & scrubbed for a minute or so over the area. That helped some, but they were still visible. I then brought out a bucket of water, dipping the brush in it regularly so the surface was good & wet while I was scrubbing, and that seemed to take it all off. It took 5 or 6 minutes to clean the area - more than I was expecting, but not so bad I regret going with Padre Brown. So, if you have dogs prone to muddy paws, understand that this will take some effort to keep it looking fresh. If that's not your cup of tea, go with a lighter color or a different product. However, if you don't mind having to scrub the deck down every once in a while, this product should work well for you. It definitely protects the wood as well if not better than anything else on the market & it looks great. The texture is a little different - much less slick that regular painted wood - but nothing you will even notice unless you're barefoot. Overall, fairly easy way to revive and protect a deck. It will require some scrubbing to keep it looking sharp, but the improved look is worth it.

                Waste of Time, Effort and Money!
                I bought this product hoping it would live up to its claims it was like painting with toothpaste but the result looked good. However after following all of the steps prescribed, (stripping, washing and drying) the product started to peel after just one season. I dont mean crack I mean peel off in sheets. for the most part the entire deck surface was bare after my toddler swept it. Does not last. not worth the money unless you want to peel and reapply each year and always have chunks of the material in your yard for the rest of your life. ABSOLUTE GARBAGE

                    Hi there, Thanks for taking the time to review our Advanced DeckOver. I'm sorry to hear about the peeling on your deck, but I'm happy to help get your project back on track. Unfortunately, our DeckOver cannot be removed by a chemical stripper, so to fix it, I recommend removing any peeling spots by scraping or sanding.  Then sand smooth the edges of the remaining DeckOver on the surface and clean with our All-In-One Wood Cleaner. Once dry, you can touch up the bare spots, and apply another full coat for color uniformity. I've also reached out to you via email to gather more info about your project and further assist. Thanks again for providing your feedback, and I hope to hear from you soon! -Christina
                      Very durable
                      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have a big, muti-level deck with a full flight of stairs. I was staining every other year, until I used Deckover. With the exception of some touch-up work, I haven’t stained for about ten years! Incredible!

                          Complete disappointment and waste of money
                          After replacing some wood and following all the instructions on cleaning and preparing the surface with the recommended products by the company, I find myself frustrated by the unappealing look of peeling paint and the thought of having to redo the entire deck. The product is really expensive and I thought the cost would justify having the deck look nice and that would last a few years. Not even a full 24 months later and my deck is a mess!

                          Hi CK1451 - Thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear about the peeling on your deck after only 24 months! To fix the finish, I recommend sanding down the peeling areas to remove the loose coating, cleaning the bare wood, then touching up with more DeckOver (or applying 2 new coats if the peeling is happening to most of the surface). I've also reached out to you via email to make sure your project is taken care of. Thanks again for sharing your experience with us, and I hope to hear back from you soon! - Sara
