Behr Deckover Painting

Updated: Feb 23, 2021

Good Morning!

A little background.. I have a super large 3 tier deck that is probably close to 15-20 years old. When I first moved in, It had never been taken care of and realistically probably was never stained. I tried Behr stain that looked like gray paint the first time I tried to stain it 2 years ago and it peeled extremely bad within the first year. In addition, the hot tub we tore out destroyed some of the boards with moisture and mold so I had to replace those this year. A lot of my tips and tricks will be more based on older decks, just a heads up!

OK! Onto the product review. The Behr Deckover paint had a lawsuit recently and they had to reformulate their paint and it is now called "Advanced Deckover". I was brave enough to give this paint a try because it can fill up to a 1/4" gaps, which I needed! Unfortunately I will not know until Spring 2021 if it will make it through the harsh winter. Fingers crossed!
