Did not last a year
Painted a brand new deck with Behr Premium Deckover Smooth Redwood paint and it did not even last a year. The paint is chipped and peeling off every board.

Response from Edith, Behr Customer CareOct 11, 2019
Hi AMISB,

Thank you for your review, and I am sorry to hear you're having a peeling/chipping issue in less than a year. I can assure you this isn't normal. To fix, we'd recommend sanding off or using a pressure washer at a low setting to remove the loose coating. Afterward, clean the surface using our All-In-One Wood Cleaner to promote adhesion, and when dry, reapply the product. To help with this, I'll be sending you an email. Please keep an eye out for it, as it tends to go to your junk inbox. -Edith
    Horrible!!!!!
    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Bought this to put on our new deck and it is absolutely horrible. Supposed to be applied with a roller. You can’t even get it to stick to the roller. What a complete waste of our money!!!!!!

    Response from Joanna, Behr Customer CareOct 9, 2019
    Hi Meg7, we appreciate your feedback. Sorry to hear you are having issues with your application; that's not the experience we want our customers to have with our products. To ensure proper consistency, we recommend stirring your coating for 3-5 minutes before using it, and intermittently during your application. If the product is still too thick to be applied or saturate your roller, we would recommend not using it and replacing it instead. Customer satisfaction is very important to us. So, I've reached out you directly to assist you further. Have a wonderful day! -Joanna
      Love my Deck.
      We had a deck that was horrible. We used this paint and it’s beautiful. So glad we did it.

        Great product
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Covered nicely and looks great! The only problem I ran into was it dries really fast and wants to peeled up when rolling over a spot already done.

          My Old Wooden Deck
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This Behr Deckover does a great job of making an old deck look fabulous. Just two pieces of advice. First, it is super thick and one gallon goes fast. It is very difficult for the paint desk to match the color even though they are supposed to be standardized. So make sure you buy enough the first time.

            Good for restoring beauty to older wood.
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Good product, but not great. The preparatory steps are absurdly difficult. Whether as a result of my not following then all our not I don't know, but adhesion was only average.

              The jury is still out.
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We scraped, sanded and applied 2 coats of textured Deck Over this summer to both of our uncovered decks. The paint is nice and thick, covered well and filled in cracks in the decking. We live in NY and will not know how well it holds up until it goes through a couple of western NY winters. So far, we are happy with the results as our decks look very nice.

                          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I had use other products in the past and was disappointed. The deck was peeling and had many rough surfaces. The Behr Deck Over was easy to use, created a smooth surface, and the deck looks the best it has in ten years.

                            Looks nice, But...
                            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We have been buying this for the last 3 years. It looks very nice. Though it has peeled in places. Each year it needs to be touched up in places. I can't imagine this will last for 10 years. I do feel it is better than the other products we have used.

                                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We had purchased Benjamin Moore for new deck and had to completely re-apply following year. Thought we had to live with it but this time bought BEHR Deckover after seeing reviews and are thrilled with the results. So easy to apply and looks beautiful!

                                        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I purchased this to cover another product that I used. It covered beautifully and the color is vibrant and saturated well. I used it to cover concrete and thought that it could have been a little thinner. Used it to cover a front and back porch and my husband thinned it a little bit to complete the job. 2 months and no problems as of yet.

                                          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I purchased this product 8 years ago to cover my deck floor. It went on as advertised. It has survived 8 years of scooting chairs and tables and using my grill on the deck. I just started to notice the fading last year and decided to go ahead and resurface the deck. I have been extremely happy with my project for the last eight years and decided to re cover it with the Behring Premium Advanced Deckover. I just scrubbed the deck down with my pressure washer and scrubbed it with the Behr deck wood cleaner and then applied the new Advanced Behr Deckover. I hope it lasts as long as the original.

                                              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Our deck is 10 years old and is badly weathered and split. I stained it last year and has since rubbed off almost completely and it looked awful. I decided to use Deckover and am amazed at how good it looks. Deckover filled in all the cracks and splits and it now looks brand new. It was super easy to apply and dried so quickly. I would recommend this to everyone with a deck whether new or old

                                                  Followed prep meticulously. Started flaking off within a year but adheres like concrete and barely removing in most places with strippers and sanding. Advice from the store: it'll be easier and cheaper to replace the wood on your deck after using this product than try to remove it. THIS IS A NIGHTMARE.

                                                    Beautiful Colors, Hard to apply
                                                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We bought this with the intention of doing our deck. The "coverage" that was listed on the can, was incorrect. We had 2 cans, and still did not cover what was needed on our deck floorboards, and according to the space that would be covered, it did not. Trying to apply with a roller was VERY difficult, and will have to try again, with 3 cans, and a brush. Needless to say, Im unhappy, and now have to spend triple the cost to try to make it right. * also need to buy 2 gallons for the railing - since the one gallon didn't even partially cover the top. Also need to apply this when the weather is cooler, as it dries too quick, and then it looks clumpy and sloppy. Not happy with the way that the roller made the deck look.

                                                    Hi DLOsgood,

I can assure you this isn't the experience we want any of our customers to have. A gallon should cover 75 sq. ft. per gallon for two coats. Also, while the coating is thicker than most, it should be easy to work with and apply. To help with this, I'll be sending you an email.

                                                      Couldn't be less satisfied.
                                                      What can you say about an expensive product, it makes very broad promises, and fulfills none of them? I wasted hours of preparation and hundreds of dollars on a product that peels erratically. Removal has taken 6 hours so far, and I will have to re-sand the entire deck later on. It's simply did not stick see most of the deck, but where did stick, it's stuck like crazy.
