I applied deck over to my 450+ sq ft decks out 7 days ago. I was informed to NOT chemical peel or sand the deck by the Home Depot employee. Working with many materials throughout my life I found this to be a it unorthidox. I went with it anyway and purchased the pre deck cleaning solution because the rep in Home Depot said it would open the pours of the wood and allow better penetration. I knew he was full of *** but I bought it anyway because...

Behr - My house is ruined by this paint.
My deck surrounds my entire home and this is what I have to look at after using this paint. I feel totally sick. This paint cost us a lot of money. I can't afford to replace it and it seems to be sucking the life out of the wood. It's cracking when you walk on it along with peeling, bubbling and shredding. I can't believe what a mess I have going on. I see so many bad reviews on this paint. I was wondering if anyone else was able to get your...

Just finished painting the deck with this product. My deck used to look great with a red oil transparent color but I could not find this oil anymore, and also had new wood added, so I needed a product that would cover it better. It did cover little wholes and cracks, however, as soon as it dried it was very rough. Now it picks up dirt and cannot be washed even with a strong hose pressure. I even tried scrubbing with soap and a brush but the soil...

I applied this product to my deck 2 years ago. First year I had a little peeling. This summer, it is peeling everywhere. And the wood underneath looks very bad. I had someone look at it and recommended replacing the deck. Wow! What a great product. Behr products will never be used on any deck surface again! This replacement will cost about $2000 and end up being my summer project. I guess I'll enjoy the deck next year. Buying paint...

h.kitchener I will say again to all who complain about Behr Deckover---it is all in the preparation you do or refuse to do properly!!! The label gives directions for application and prep....

Behr Deckover Deck Paint Review from Thunder Bay, Ontario
Behr Deckover Deck Paint Review from Thunder Bay, Ontario
We paid a lot of money hoping this would help preserve and make our front stairs and back deck!What a waste of money!!! Didnt even last a full year! Bubbling, peeling, winds even blow it off!! And worst of all is if you walk on it, it actually sticks to your feet and gets brought into the house!! So disappointed and wish they would do something about it! Don't know about anybody else, but i do not have extra cash to throw around like this!Check...

Behr - Absolutely Sick Over This
Behr - Absolutely Sick Over This
I have a weathered deck that is still structurally sound, exactly what this product is advertised for. Hired a professional painter to installed Behr Textured Deckover last fall. I made sure he followed the product preparation and installation instructions. It looked awesome right after it went on. This spring it is peeling already. Not the painters fault, I directed him to use this defective product. Looks like this is going to be a real...

Anonymous Same issue here... We have decided to just put a patio in. This stuff us junk.

I was told by the Salesman at Home Depot this product would extend the life of my deck 10 years. There would be no chipping, bubbling, or cracking. After using this paint all of these things have happened to my deck. My deck is ruined. It immediately began cracking, bubbling and peeling. Now I have to use paint remover, sand it, and redo it. This is a huge expense not to mention the amount of labor it will require. I have called Behr...

Anonymous Same thing happened to us. Even spent he money on the special wood cleaner to use first!

I applied the deck over last year and for the first few months it looked great. But do not be deceived by end of summer it was coming off in large strips. Just walking on the deck the strips come off on your feet. It is horrible! The strips of paint are in my pool and all over my lawn. It was so bad I was raking the paint off my lawn. The problem now is I am left with a huge mess and many years of clean up. The I would not recommend this...

We have a 1500 sq ft deck and used Deckover on that and some verticals around a hot tub and 2 bars. The verticals are fine. However it appears the Deckover caused the deck to hold water. The attached photo is one year after applying 2 coats. We now need to replace the entire deck and go back to a stain. DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT. It is going to cost us several thousand dollars .

This stuff is a joke. We bought it hoping to avoid staining and that it was "chip" resistant. That's not the case. This is worse than stain and a nightmare to touch up. We spent over $1k to use this and have had nothing but problems.

Horrible product. Followed directions to a T. Didn't even last one year. Peeled off in big pieces. Cannot believe they can still sell this terrible product.

Used Behr Deckover on 80' x12' deck and it did not survive one Canadian winter. By year two it is an eyesore. Will not buy another Behr product and will discourage everyone we know. The deck started peeling after the first winter. After 2nd winter 70% of the deck was peeling. No way to repair so have to scrap the deck or find some product that will remove the remainder. Deckover was coming off in strips about 12"in length. Also made mess in pool...
