You'll Be Sorry!!!: As noted in the video above,
we join deck professionals around the world in warning consumers NOT to use acrylic, latex or film forming coatings similar to “Deck RESTORE”, Olympic RESCUE IT!, Sherwin-Williams DeckScapes, Behr “DeckOver”, Behr stain, and other solid stains, paints or coatings. If the wood-grain is slightly masked or totally hidden, then this is a film forming coating. Consequently,
it did NOT penetrate and will NOT protect the
integrity of your deck -- and you may have to re-treat in 18 months or less. Painters and salespeople will tell you that you can simply
recoat the deck, but eventually, the re-coat will
NOT adhere and will begin to come off in sheets.
Recoat 3+ times and you will have a
"maintenance nightmare" and will need to replace part of your deck and do an intense sanding.
