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

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.

    So glad to hear about this product. I've been very curious about it since I saw it at Home Depot this summer!

    Thanks for posting this Terri. We bought this product for our front porch this past Spring. I power washed then waited the couple days for it to thoroughly dry and then it started raining every few days. This was just before our daughter's wedding and by the time I stopped raining her day was here. Took a week to recuperate then the heat wave so I never got it done. I'd love to do it today, but there's a 70% chance of rain tonight. Ya might know! LOL It's very nice to know that you're still loving it. So am I understanding that you only did one coat?

    Becky, no I did two coats. The second coat goes on just like the first, but while it is still wet, you can back roll it for a "smoothe finish." With the crazy weather, and you being further north than I am, I would probably hold off until spring. That is just my opinion though - I am not a professional. Sorry about the confusion!!!

    This past spring I looked at this product and since I didn't see anything good or bad I didn't get it. Instead, I sanded the sh#* out of that deck then stained it. Yes it looked good but I was in pain! Now that its fall the deck looks pretty bad. The stain faded in places and just doesn't look that great. I saw this today at Home Depot and told my husband I was going to use it next summer. With a smile on his face he said "sure you can do that". I say with a smile because he is not handy at all. Give him a computer and a calculator and watch out, give him a hammer and he has to Google which end to use LOL.
