We finally had to call in a professional painter. The Deckover could not be scrapped off and a regular power washer did nothing.

He used a high powered power washer an got the majority of it off but was unable to get it all. Twenty 16' boards had to be replaced. He put a primer on it that should act as a glue to the remaining Deckover and then painted it. This was two weeks ago.

We are noticing some bubbles so are going to have to call hi, back.

So frustrating! We have now spent $1400 in an attempt to repair the damage caused by this Behr product.

Last summer we applied Behr Deckover to our deck following the directions on the can. By the end of the summer it was peeling.

Now the majority of the deck is peeling and we have rotted boards...75% of our boards have to be replaced with the deck scraped and treated again. When we called Behr, they told us to sand and reapply at the cracked locations. Really? We were willing to pay more for their product to save us money in the long run.

Well, that didn't work.

We have a fairly large deck with steps and multi-levels. This is going to be quite an expensive project!

Product or Service Mentioned: Behr Paint.

Reason of review: Bad quality.

Monetary Loss: $2500.

Preferred solution: Assist with the cost to give us back our stable safe deck.

Behr Cons: Deckover paint.

Google "Behr Deckover Lawsuit" and join the Class Action Lawsuit. I had the very same terrible experience with the product and the company.

It's unconscionable.

I'm now being advised to replace the deck because power washing can't fully remove the DeckOver. A multi-thousand dollar mistake caused by an irresponsible company.
