Behr Deckover Stain Review

Deck Resurface Stains like Behr Deckover, Olympic Rescue-It, Rust-Oleum Restore – Do They Work?

Homeowners are always looking for an alternative to a deck replacement. When wood is neglected, it can be expensive to have it restored or replaced. A few companies like Behr, Rust-Oleum, and Olympic to name a few, are selling a deck resurface product. They claim it is the smart alternative to deck replacement. It can be applied to wood surfaces such as decks, stairs, docks, composite decking, and more. So is it a good alternative or is it just a waste of time and money?

Deck resurface products are basically similar to an extremely thick paint. They are designed to mask the wood and fill large cracks or voids. Deck resurface will not show any wood grain. Please note that this product is far beyond conventional wood restoration.

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.

Behr Deckover Stain Scores (1-10)

Appearance After Initial Stain Application: 4

– Behr applies like a thick paint and helps to fill cracks and conceal splinters. It looks like a paint, not like a deck stain. Our customer complained about dirty foot prints always showing up on the deck. Had to scrub to remove.

Preventing UV Graying at 2 Year Mark: 10

– Excellent UV protection from graying in the areas that were not peeling.

Wear/Tear and Peeling: 4

– One Winter and the Deckover was peeling heavily. We prepped according to manufacturer directions so we know that was not the problem. In general we have found that all Behr stains have a tendency to peel, especially after a Winter in a cold weather state.
