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.

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.
