Can this be applied with a sprayer

Asked by Adam May 6, 2021
1
Answer

We appreciate your interest, Adam! Due to how thick Rust-Oleum RockSolid 20X Deck Resurfacer is, we do not recommend spraying this product. We also do not recommend thinning it, as it can reduce the film and protection. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

Can you apply this product over existing paint/deck stain?

Asked by Jason May 5, 2021

Answer

You've come to the right place! Rust-Oleum RockSolid 20X Deck Resurfacer can be applied over an existing paint/deck stain, but you will need to prime the surface first along with all the necessary cleaning steps as well. For the primer, we recommend using Rust-Oleum RockSolid Deck Start Wood Primer. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Rust-Oleum-RockSolid-1-Gal-Deck-Start-Exterior-Wood-Primer-Clear-312283/307428127 - Rust-Oleum Product Support 5

Answer

We are here to help, Barry! To ensure full adhesion of Rust-Oleum RockSolid 20X Deck Resurfacer, we recommend cleaning the surface and then priming with Rust-Oleum RockSolid Deck Start Primer. You will also want to remove any loose or peeling paint prior to recoating as well. Due to how thick this coating is, we do not recommend the 20X for use on spindles or other vertical surfaces. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Rust-Oleum-RockSolid-1-Gal-Deck-Start-Exterior-Wood-Primer-Clear-312283/307428127 - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

Disappointed
I watched all of the Rust-Oleum videos to make sure that I applied this product correctly. I purchased all of the recommended supplies, from the deck cleaner to the roller cover. I painted Monday morning, & then let it dry (48 hrs before rain). I noticed that it didn’t look great as it dried—the color was uneven and it looked bubbly. It rained Wednesday, and after the rain cleared I checked the deck, & m I am devastated. The paint is not hard, but gooey and bubbly all over. I can see that it is going to peel. This wasn’t a cheap product, & I expected a much better finish. Not sure what I’m going to do now.

This is my 2nd time using Rustoleum on my deck, I’ve previously used 10x which was very durable for many years. The 20x product is thicker and needs to be applied much quicker. It is great for filling in deck cracks and exposed nails with a nice textured finish. It does get a bit hot on sunny days, so make sure you have on shoes.

I had the product professionally shaken at Home Depot 2x longer (per the guy behind the counter). The product is like spreading frosting it is SO thick. The product is full of a sand like filler/texture that will not spread evenly, not by recommended roller or brush. Some parts of the deck are VERY textured and some parts are shiny with no texture at all. It does fill in the cracks, that it does do. I covered a 15 year old deck with it and a newly constructed wood ramp. The product could not evenly coat either. The finished product looks absolutely terrible.

Response from Rust-OleumSupportJun 22, 2020
That is not what we like to hear! Our RockSolid 20x Deck Resurfacer is an ultra-thick deck coating, and must be applied using the specialized companion roller cover. While using this roller, the coating should be pushed out and spread, not applied in the back and forth motion typically used with normal paint. If you would like to give us a call at 800-373-6333, we will be happy to help with tips to get the application looking the way it should. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Rust-Oleum-RockSolid-9-in-20X-One-Coat-Roller-318223/307428130 - Rust-Oleum Product Support 2 Rustoleum

After 3 yrs of repeatedly scraping, sanding, priming & painting our wooden porch floors only for the paint to peel off again & again, a friend of ours told us about RockSolid. After just one coat, it was evident that we may have found the product of our porch dreams. It is waterproof, feels great to walk on, and I believe will make it through the Southern Illinois seasons just fine. The product looks great, too.

Not Happy
Applied 20x Product two years back to get textured look on a new deck with proper instruction. Applied Primer first and then product to get maximum durability but still last week when I cleaned deck with just a regular hose there is lot of paint that chipped away. I used thick and expensive product to save myself from putting them again for 4-5 years. When i called Rustoleum support they asked me to re coat it....If i have to recoat it every 2 years i should use some other cheaper stain instead.
by justjp
Response from Rust-OleumSupportMay 18, 2020
That is not what we like to hear! Our RockSolid 20x Deck Resurfacer is designed to last much longer than 2 years, and these results are not typical, nor what we expect from this coating. Recoating is certainly the best way to repair chipping or peeling, however, this is not something that should be expected, or need to be repeated. Our Product Support Team will be able to assist you with our satisfaction guarantee, and provide the product needed to recoat the surface. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 2 Rustoleum

It will give great coverage but the color is about 2 shades lighter then the test drop on the lid. I purchased the chocolate color and got like a dark red. Very disappointed about it.
by HM
Response from Rust-OleumSupportMay 18, 2020
Something is amiss here! The color drop placed on the lid after tinting is a sample taken from the product itself, so the color is identical; this is likely an optical illusion from looking at a small sample and comparing to the color spread out over a large surface area. If you are dissatisfied with the color, please give us a call at 800-373-6333, and we will be happy to help! - Rust-Oleum Product Support 2 Rustoleum
