Hi There Here's how you can get the most out of your home & garden social network: Go home

I used "Restore" on my deck this past summer. Comes in multiple colors, and did exactly what I was told it would do -

Before & After 06.27.14
filled in cracks, covered well - no sanding invoived, Just powerwash, lite scrubbing at "mossy areas" and bang! I chose to not back roll the second coat and leave the finish product textured, to help when walking on it in icy conditions.

    I used this product on an old splintered deck two years ago and it has exceeded my expectations and I don't have to worry about little kids getting hurt on it. It made the deck look brand new. I did try to clean yesterday with TSP, but it didn't do a

    It looks great !! I'm sure it will clean off dirt and whatever else gets on it as long as you use good detergents to clean it with that won't hurt the color or texture..

    The other thing is that I chose not to back roll the second coat to be smooth as the directions suggested. I wanted a rough texture to help my feet grip it better when we are in the winter months. I have recently just taken the regular hose to it, and

    I live in the Idaho panhandle, so technically the Pacific NW. It is raining right now and my deck is now liquified! I can take my finger and scoop it up! I made sure it was dry for 10 days after I applied it in September. No one told me anything about

    Pam, I was told about this product from a professional on Hometalk. It rained a few days after I applied mine, and I had no troubles. I am so sorry that you did though, and if you haven't already, I would call the manufacturer, and if you have your

    Thanks, Terri, for your response. My deck looked a lot like yours, before, but had more paint, and with a satin like finish, so I chose to strip what I could of the many layers, then sand. Maybe I shouldn't have done that. I am going to talk with the

    @ Ed - sorry you had a bad experience w/ the Restore. I truly am, but I am still happy w/ mine, and I didn't use anything but plain water to pressure wash the deck. Thanks for sharing your experience, as it will give others two opposing views on the
