Default Behr DeckOver or Restore Deck Resurfacer

Anyone used one of these products to resurface a wood deck rather than rebuild it?

I have a 12x20 deck that needs some work. I looked at the Restore product but from the instructions, you need two coats to get the proper coverage and protection. For my deck, it would take two of the large containers to do one coat. At $67 each, that would come to about $300 with sales tax.

Haven't checked out the Behr stuff yet.

I used the Synta Deck Restore on my deck about a year ago. It turned out great, the deck looks new, and it provided a somewhat "non-skid" textured surface. Just what I wanted and was looking for. If you use this product and apply it properly, you won't even see the surface of your old deck.

I just did some searching for both products and for the Olympic "Rescue It" stuff. Found some good videos that show the process.

The Restore stuff provides a fairly deep textured finish while the others are smoother. All of them require some work for preparation to include cleaning, sinking any nails, filling holes, and masking where necessary.

They all advertise that they will cover up to 1/4" gaps/cracks in the deck boards but you do have to scrape out any material in the deck board gaps. Also looks like this is not really a one-day job especially for the Olympic product. All require two coats so that can add to the overall cost of the material.

I just bought two gallons of the Behr DeckOver and plan to give it a go tomorrow. The nice thing about is there are 54 color choices and they are matched to the Behr deck stain colors so you can do the posts, rails, and so forth if you want to redo everything. I'll post some updates and let ya know what I think.

Deck restore is great stuff. I put it on my concrete pool deck and its held up great. Its a PITA to put on, but for the money you can't beat the quality.

Let us know how it turns out. Just re coated my deck. Was treated wood w/ some kind of stain/water repellant. It was crap. Flaked off and wood was turning brown.
Belt sanded off all the old coating
Oil base stain.
Was going to marine varnish on top but decided not to because if it ever had to be done again, would have to sand off the varnish.
Now, if it fades, I'll just stain again,
Lowest maintenance factor.

These are before it got really bad, no after pics yet

Here are a couple of pics before I applied the Restore. You have to use a brush to get the same color stain in between all the boards:

Awesome. I might have tried the Restore except for three things:

1) More expensive
2) Way more work
3) The crinkly finish

Yeah, yeah...call me a lazy old guy.

how long before you can step on it?
how does it feel on bare feet?
are the areas in the sun hot under bare feet?

Looks really good and I am thinking of doing it to a front deck. I have to replace a few boards and I know that even with stain they won't match the existing boards. I figured this stuff would hide all that.
