    Nope...50 years for paint?...not likely Most paints can do 10 to 15 years. This is for vertical applications...horizontal surfaces...like a deck. No way.

    Never heard of it and wouldn't even bother with it. On a horizontal surface like a deck....even the best products will get you maybe 5 to 6 years. Where did you hear about it? Manufacturers often put ridiculous ratings on products so be cautious

    You always have to use some common sense with exterior products. Peace and HandyANDY both do a ton of decks around metro Atlanta and if we get 2 to 3 years...MAX out of them...that's all you can expect. The products that offer "50 years" tend to be

    My Ipe Deck is 15 years old and still looks brand new...quality materials and routine care can go along long way.

    Exactly - the routine care part is what preserves a deck and keeps it looking good. Most folks aren't going to spend the money on Ipe or they have purchased a newly built home where the deck was already in place. Builders mostly use the cheapest
