Important Note: For the past few years there have been numerous “Deck Makeover” products that have come on the market. As contractors we have not seen any of the products actually perform well. In fact they seem to fail after 1 year and even more so in a cold weather state. One thing that the past years(s) have shown is that there is a demand from consumers to use these types of products.
This review is from a third party. We personally have not tested or used this product. We posted the review based on respect for the manufacturer and belief that this product has real value and an excellent history based on consumer reviews. This review is not an actual outdoor field test but a Freeze/Thaw test.
Gulf Synthetics Deck Revive Review 2015
Deck Revive is a DIY acrylic based polymer deck coating that resurfaces old decks, docks and other treated lumber — in ANY color you choose. Deck Revive repairs and protects wood structures from the constant expansion and contraction cycle that destroys wood.
Traditional deck stains, deck paints and deck sealers just put new color on old splinters, cracks and nailheads and have to be re-applied annually. Deck Revive actually fills in cracks and knots, locks down splinters and nailheads, and provides a new slip-resistant textured surface that lasts for years.
Unlike other “Deck Resurfacer” type products, Deck revive is breathable, allowing moisture to escape.
