When I moved into my house in December 2015, the deck was new but unpainted. In the spring of 2016, I hired a guy from the internet to paint my porch. He washed the deck with the wood cleaner, I picked out my paint color. I paid the man, I think was named Jim, for the materials, paint and labor. I thought his charge was reasonable and I thought 2 gallons would finish the deck. The deck was a nice color and it looked nice except did not seem to cover too well, and he said that I needed another gallon. I think each gallon was like $50. The deck looked nice when he finished.
In the spring of 2017, the paint seemed to have faded some and did not look as nice as it did one year ago but was acceptable. I bought one gallon (that is still sitting in my shed) to apply on the deck, but I could not find anyone to help me paint it, and I could not find Jim.
In the summer of 2018, my deck looks horrible. It needs completely repainted. It appears that after a hard rain, it has pulled up strips of paint. My deck looks like it hasn't been painted in 10 years. I will have to hire someone to scrap the paint off the deck, reapply the wood cleaner and whatever else needs to be done to have it completely repainted. I can't do this myself (a 66 year old lady with health problems).
I paid a lot to have a nice, painted deck and it looks horrible now. I don't know what brand of paint to trust now, since I thought this was supposed to be one of the best deck paints.
I would not recommend this paint to anyone.
