I have sent 6 emails since the end of July with no response! I bought the deck over and applied it last September 2016; and by October it started just sloughing off. I can actually stand on my porch and pieces of paint comes off onto my foot. it just blows off in the wind. it looks trashy... and at this point it would be easier to build a new deck than to try and remove this ***! i have pictures and will post them. Also, I am going to contact...

Behr Premium Deckover Deck Paint Review
We just did our deck last summer 2016. We followed and aplied all the solutions that were required prior applying the deck-over paint. It is very unfair to spend a lot of money and put effort with the warranty that this paint will last at least years and not less than after a month. We are drom Winnipeg Canada.

of deck. Went to Home Depot to buy stain for my deck, 2014. The salesclerk at Home Depot talked me into buying Behr Deck Over paint, instead of stain. Worst mistake of my life. He told me it would extend the life of my deck for 10 years. It was supposed to last for 10 years. That was in the spring, by the end of summer it began cracking. I bought more paint and filled in the cracked areas. The following spring, 2015 it had crack worse....

After spending countless money on this product it is a huge disappointment on the wood.Peeling is awful on both wood decks and 2 years later will have to do it all over again. The front porch that consists of concrete has lasted and get many compliments. Overall, it sucks because of all the work we did to both decks and now wexwill have to do it over..and more money.

Anonymous I totally agree. I just called Behr to make the same complaint. They told me I have to paint the top AND underside of the boards to keep the moisture from coming thru and caus...

I used deck over on my brand new deck. and at first it looked great. that was last year. now it is peeling everywhere. looks terrible and can not be restored back to it's planned look. I have been scrapping, sanding and more scrapping. My new deck will never look the same and i will never use deck over again. just wish i knew before hand. I saved and spent alot of money for a new deck. I think Behr should know about this problem and maybe make...

My family and I spent the better part of two days last summer prepping our 1,200sq ft multi-leveled deck so we could apply Deckover. Looked wonderful until the snow melted this spring. I didn't think I'd have to worry about our deck for at least another few years but it's peeling, lifting and bubbling. I tried to clean it with a brush hoping I would get all the lose pieces up so I could reapply another coat since I have so much of this stuff...

Like many of you we don't have a lot of time to be spending on a deck hence the Deck over solution seemed like a bright idea to saving time and money. I had spent two solid weeks prepping my cedar deck it almost looked new after replacing many boards as well, I figured this would be the last time to deal with it for a long time. less than a year I had it peeling, cracking and water getting in causing rotting even with some new boards. I am...

After spending hundreds of dollars on your product (3 years ago) we were hoping that our deck would be low maintenance for years to come. Well, it has peeled, bubbled and is an embarrassment for the front of our beautiful home. We have finally decided to address this mess. I will not have anyone visit, because of the way it looks. You should stand behind your product, go look what is happening and help people remove this product from their deck.

Anonymous The most common cause for what you describe is inadequate prep of the deck before application of the Behr Deckover. Also contributing to failure is moisture coming usually fro...

One year after using Behr Deckover on a medium sized deck which I am too tired to measure due to M.S (no pity party for my legs just the facts). My Minnesota deck began to peel in long strips. At the same time my seventy pound puppies developed a mysterious syndrome that various clinics and hospitals could not identify. After reading the various problems regarding Behr Deckover...

This product is the worst product I have ever used and I have been a do-it -myself home repair person for 20 + years. It peels and chips horribly just 6 months after application. I wasted hours and hours prepping and painting and now I have to do it all over again. Yes, I am pretty angry!

How do you remove this product? It has been terrible from the start, bubbling and peeling. Peels off in strips and the deck looks worse than before. Advice on how to get the rest of this off?!?

Help! My whole deck is bubbling and pealing two years after application. This product was supposed to be the answer. It's now created a greater problem. My deck looked better before I started. I now want to list my house and have to get this fixed or make a really bad impression with prospective buyers. This is going to cost me serious money. I'm going to have to strip and repaint the whole thing. I've been scraping and repainting sections, but...

rollo2016 Don't blame Behr. Something else is going on to cause the problems you are experiencing, eg., bad prep, moisture problems underneath the deck, etc.
