    A simple 'Deckover' requires only the right paint. BEHR deck restoration paint is the best money can buy at lowe's or home depot or Ace Hardware.

      Paint is fine but really doent's last on decks. I recommend a good UV rated deck stain. Solid deck stains provide the best protection.

    First, pressure wash the deck. Roll on new stain with a paint roller and a long rod that attaches to the roller so you don’t have to work on your knees. When it’s dry roll on 2 coats of Thompson’s Water Seal, allowing the first coat to completely dry before applying the second coat.

    There is a problem with the deckover products. They are known to crack and peel within two years. Hard to remove. Many Hometalkers have used them and regret it and have mention their misfortunes in discussions. Many people had o replace deck boards and even complete decks. There are class action lawsuits against the manufacturers. Also notice they are not advertised anymore. You can do some online research and find more cons than pros. I have been advising Hometalkers not to use the products and to spread the word. Some have tried scraping and sanding with fair results.

    Be sure the wood is dry before you put any paint or stain on the wood!
