    Call a local hardware store or two and ask them. They can give you a reliable answer.

    What kind of stain did you use? Most stain absorbs into the wood and should last about four years.

    OH OH! Based on what you describe i am going to assume you used Behr Deckover.


    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.
