Pissed Consumer Interviews ?
I applied Deckover to my 3 decks totaling nearly 1000 sq. Ft 2 years ago. It peeled the first year and I touched it up. Now it looks much worse and is peeling everywhere. There is seemingly no remedy for this yet they continue to sell the product. This is unconscionable. I wasted my time and money on the stripping, prep and application. I am very unhappy with Behr. I would at the very least appreciate a refund of the costs and compensation for my labor and materials. Also I would be happy to participate in a class action suit. I have contacted Behr first by phone but they steered my to the website as they said the customer service number is disconnected.
We bought 6 gallons of the product and the 20 year old deck looked pretty darn good...until after winter. The product is blistering and peeling big time off the deck and the yard is a mess. I've got a deck now that looks awful and dried deck over paint strips and...Read more

I used over 35 gallons of your Deck Over paint to cover my 14'10" x 28' deck and railings last summer. It now makes me sick to look at since it is all peeling off. The railing, spindles, decking, ledger boards, all peeling. I bought the paint at Home Depot in...Read more
Behr Deckover paint an absolute, peeling, horrible mess after one year!!!
Applied per instructions. Looked awesome at first, but at about a year it started peeling off and continues to peel off to this day. It was painted early 2016, late 2015. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!! ABSOLUTE DISASTER!! Had a bid by professional painter to redo... $6,000!!!! Would have to sand completely off and start over.
Spent 300 plus dollars on Behr Deck Over. And hours and hours of Labor preparing are 600 foot deck. Put it on last fall, did everything directions told! This spring 5 months later it's peeling oozing! What the *** Somebody better fix this, it's getting worse everyday....Read more

Behr - Bad experience with deck over paint
We built a new deck this year and we put the Behr Deck Over on the floor. We followed the instructions on the can . Cleaned wood, let dry,painted floor and then applied the Deck Over. We put 3 coats on it. It has already started to peel and bubble in places. It isnt covering where the seams are either.We are very dissapointed with it. The deck looks great and then there is the ugly floor. If it is bubbling and peeling now what will it look like in the spring when we will start using it more. Please what can we do.
I initially put Smooth Deck Over on my small 8x5 deck. The wood was 5 years old, so I cleaned it with Behr # 63 wood cleaner, let it totally dry (it was a hot summer) no rain for 10 plus days. On the 5th day after being thoroughly dry, I applied the first coat. The...Read more

Behr - Rebates
I purchased 3 cans of Behr paint in august 2018. there was a rebate of 10.00 each can. I sent the rebate information to them on their rebate page. After waiting 2 months , I contacted the rebate center by phone. and gave my info to the gentleman, after checking my rebates. he stated the 30.00 checks were sent out in September. he asked for my address, he told me that was the one they had on file. And he would reissue another check and send it to me. and it would take 2 weeks at the most. Well it has been 3 months and still no check!! I will NEVER buy another can of Behr!! pissed off consumer!!

- Fraudulant rebates
During the very hot 2016 summer, I needed to restain my pool deck. I bought Behr Waterproofing Wood Stain, Terra Cotta color, with 5 years decks guarantee. I followed all directions to the letter and decking was completely dry before applying. All it took was one...Read more
