Update by user Jul 05, 2020

The worst product I have ever used. Was never notified of the class action law suit!

Can't even walk on my deck barefoot like their commericals claimed! No email to contact Behr Paints!

Deck Over crap. Has anyone found a way to remove this stuff.

I’m a female and have never used a large sander and dint have a male unless I hire someone. The cost I’m getting is over $1,000 to have it stripped and refinished.

I need help, my dream house deck is destroyed. Behr sucks

BEHR Deckover Ruined my deck!

Applied to my large deck and spindles as instructed. Even sanded the deck down before application. Pealing everywhere. Will have to replace entire deck which will cost me thousands. I always have my HOme Depot receipts emailed to me and was never notified of this class action so I could file a claim. I will NEVER use another BEHR product!

User's recommendation: Stay far away.

I am a contractor in western PA and pro at the local home depot spending 125k/year+. Used Deckover on 5 units in last 3 years, one being my own, and it ruined them all. 2 of the 4 clients have already replaced their decks and I need to do the same, at a cost of $5500!. Not only did the product peel (in some lengths 20+ inches) but it locked in the moisture, rotting and molding the wood underneath. Really expecting a return phone call 724-854-****.

User's recommendation: DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT, EVER!!!!

I feel better

Behr - I feel better
We just spent a lot of time and money painting our deck using Behr Deckover dark grey paint. When it was first applied we loved it! However after putting the furniture on and walking on the deck it now shows every footprint, paw print, and smudge. I called Behr and they gave me the recommendation to 1. use Behr All in one wood cleaner 2. Paint another coat onto the deck flooring. I was told by the Behr customer service that if these things dont work I can contact them and they will help us in any way they can. Fingers crossed it all works out!

This paint is awful! In the first year it started to peel and bubble. We put it over tree and I’m so sorry. It ruined a very expensive deck. Is there any recourse?

Refund fraud

I had submitted the necessary paperwork so I would get my paint rebate. When I only received one when I should have received 3 I called. They said they were cancelling the card I had received and sending a new one. I never received the new cards. This happened several times and I was out about 60.00 total. I will never by Behr paints again. I'm not sure who is responsible, Home Depot or Behr but I will take my paint business elsewhere.

User's recommendation: Never mind the rebates. Take the money off the top of the price. It's a scam.

Racial propaganda

I saw your ad on tv showing a white woman apparently married. Less than 9% of white women marry blacks. Consequently, you use propaganda in your ad in order to try and increase the percentage. I always used your paint but no more since you show phony racial ads.

User's recommendation: Nix Behr.

Received no rebate.

I mailed in the rebate list along with the codes for 8 cans of Behr Premium and never received the promise rebate. I will never buy that kind of paint again. They do not stand behind their promise of a rebate!

User's recommendation: Would not purchase this product.

Applied to deck two years ago. Applied to new wood on steps and landing. The new wood was seasoned for a year before construction and staining. Stain is peeling off and the old wood on the deck is splitting and the stain is peeling. So far I have stripped one quarter of the deck back down to the wood. This will take days with my sander. Now I just purchased another gallon before reading all of the complaints and I can't return it. The new can says "now with better adhesion"

User's recommendation: Do not purchase! This product is terrible!

Product complaint

We are on the fourth coat. No matter what we do the paint does not look even. Water stains it. We have a big bubble. We've used recommended roller, squeegee and lastly paint pad. I have 500 square feet (ca. 46 m²) 15 gallons and still looks horrible.

User's recommendation: Dont purchase.
