This is the 3rd deck I have done with 10x in the past several years. I have had none of the surface failures other reviewers report. My surfaces were in very rough condition to start, and in each case I made it rougher by aggressively power-washing. Then I waited for a dry spell with the temperatures recommended in the manual, did the absorption test as described in the manual, and applied. I did not prime as recommended in the manual: this was not a recommendation at the time I did the first 2 decks, and I had really good results. So I took my chances this time.
The manual does call for setting and filling the fasteners. I did set them, but did not fill them on the 2 previous decks. I had a few nails telegraph a small spot of rust, but for me working those few spots several years later was less labor/ worth the trade of doing all of them at the start.
I chose a light color, and it is definitely cooler than the raw wood; nevertheless, in direct sunlight, it can still get too hot for my feet. Again, it is cooler than the raw wood, probably because of the lighter color. Any clouds, shade, or water at all, and the temp is quickly within the comfort range.
Once you go with this stuff, it is a commitment: you are not getting it off economically without a re-deck. But I really like it, and my friends like the look and the feel. I had other coatings fail on the same decks. This stuff worked really well for me, but I was really methodical with how I did the prep (especially after the previous fails and the cost of this product). When I see some of the failures in the other reviews, I recognize characteristics of the way my previous coatings failed. In each case it was because of me skipping something (like power washing aggressively enough, leaving an old coating on (even if it didn't look like it), putting it on in too cold-hot- wet) etc. But my experience with the 10x has been great. I suspect it would work for most if you get the surface really clean, really rough, and really dry, and then apply in the right temp range. Pretty much like the directions say...
I used this on my 12'x20' pool deck. The wood was beyond repair. After cleaning the wood, this stuff rolls on easly with the special spungy roller that you need. It almost looks like it is a mixture of sand and paint. Yes it filled and covered the holes and splinters in the deck. Yes it made the pool deck look nice. BUT now the pool deck is way to HOT to walk on. The deck restore made my deck just as hot as my black top driveway in the sun.
If you enjoy walking barefoot, or are using it for a pool deck, i do not recommend this product. In hindsight what I should have done is torn up all the old boards and bought new pressure-treated boards. Or bought two large outdoor area rugs to cover the deck.

Thank you for your feedback, Eric! Rust-Oleum Restore 10X Advanced Deck and Concrete Resurfacer is a high build, yet breathable coating that gives you a durable, water- and weather-resistant, and barefoot friendly surface. Please keep in mind that darker colors will retain more heat than lighter colors.

I like this product.I used it before on cement. Good product.The gray wash did not match the paint chip so watch the colors.Will use it again.
I used this same product a couple of years ago on a small deck. We built the deck out of old wood, that wasn't the best looking, and with new wood. In order to get the whole thing to look the same we decided to use both the 4X and 10X products. The 4X did not hold up well on the wood at all. The 10X was great! So that is why I decided to go ahead and cover the bare spots with this product again. It is a little difficult to spread but the results are great! I also like the fact that it is a light gray color. I used the 4X on the old rock foundation of the house too. I could not find it in the stores and had to order it. Glad it was still available online.
