  • You'll either have to use a stain stripper or a sander.

    You can also scrap it off by hand, which I did. If the wood has gotten wet below it (happened with my deck even though it was properly prepared and applied) you can peel it off. Horrible stuff. It took me weeks to get it all off. Stained the deck with solid color stain and am so much happier with it. Good luck.

    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.
