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.
Lots of law firms with class action lawsuits. You can file.
Hi Joy. We had the same problem. We sanded the majority off with a heavy joint sander. Since it was so horrible, we found it easier to flip the boards. It lasted 2 more years before we put Treks boards down. Good luck!😊
I had to use a belt sander and medium grit sandpaper belts eventually moving to a finer grit belt. The coarse belt tore up the wood too much so if you start with a coarse belt be very careful. The palm sander was taking too long--the belt sander worked better. Yes...the product does roll up as you sand. Sand, sweep off the debris, sand again. Power wash in between sanding and let dry before you sand again. Keep sanding until you get to wood working on small areas at a time. You may not get all of the deck product out of the cracks but you should be able to get most of it off. It is a nightmare of a job. It takes several days to do if you have a big deck. I know people who have rented floor sanders as well.
