Message:

Has anyone here used any of those deck restore products such as the 6x or 20x thickness products that are designed to thoroughly cover a moderately to severely worn deck?

I have a couple of entry decks this product looks like it might work well on. Just curious about how well it works and holds up over time.

The stuff I'm looking at online is made by Rust-Oleum Deck Resurfacer or Behr's Advanced DeckOver at HD. --24.20.xxx.xxx

I shouldn't have referred to it as a stain. It is more a cover product, not a stain. --24.20.xxx.xxx

I've used it. Success. Buys time. Ive also just flipped over the boards on the deck to buy time and I've also replaced the horizontal floor boards with plastic. All to buy time or get more use out of a sturdy deck. --99.203.xx.xxx

in the long run-- may be cheaper to replace the boards. Have you priced this per SQ FT of coverage? It ain't cheap!!!! --99.103.xxx.xxx

From what I have seen it is a gamble. 50% chance if it last.

Should be a last resort. You are not going to be able to strip it off and try something else. --73.152.xx.xxx

Have not had good luck with that. It wears off in a year or two and looks bad when that happens. As RR78(VA) said, you can't strip it of. Better to use a couple of coats of solid stain and re-coat when necessary. --71.28.xxx.xxx

Our salesman at Lowes said they had not had good reports about it. We try to find oil based stain, almost impossible, Cabot makes one, all of the Amish/Mennonites choose that I've heard.

Message:

Cabots used to be a favorite. But not since they sold the company and the EPA stopped them all from making what we called oil based stains.

Hard to find because no one is allowed to make them. If called oil based it is not the same as before. It will be Oil modified or something.

EPA does not allow the amount of solvents in them anymore. --73.152.xx.xxx

The rustoleum product was a disaster and I should have applied for a refund. The Lowes brand has held up well except in one spot where water gets under the coating and always stays moist. --99.203.xx.xxx

I had great results renewing my deck with restore. --73.141.xxx.xx

I have stairs done with the valspar product. Holding up well after 3 - 4 years. BUT the toughest part is making sure the boards are really REALLY dry before you use it. Not this year in NY anyway! --108.4.xxx.xx

Thanks for the responses. My local HD only has the Behr Advanced formula DeckOver in stock. I'm going to give it a try. Hoping for the best... --24.20.xxx.xxx

JB yes I meant to say HD product not lowes. Agree the deck must be DRY. Mine was in rough shape and I took a planer to parts of it too. --24.194.xx.xx
