I bought an old house that needed a ton of TLC. A real do it your selfer, I loved the challenge and have restored much of my home by myself. I have three decks attached to my home. I wanted to fix them up a bit. None of them were in horrible condition but they looked old and weathered and there were some cracks and splitting in the wood. The first deck a small deck that hold mostly plants was the first to get restored. The first deck is a 10x6. We followed the deck restore directions to the T. Needless to say we quickly realized that that if we continued to restore all the decks as instructed by this company we would probably need double, if not triple the amount of product indicated by the company. We had carefully calculated the size of all three decks and bought the amount of product indicted on the box. The first small deck that was restored did turn out nice.... BUT it took a whole gallon of product and that was just for the first coat!Read more ›
I had done a fair amount of prep to the deck already: pressure-washed, sanded, and repaired the boards that were too rotted. We bought two boxes of this stuff and had it tinted Sandstone. I knew we would probably need a bit more, but I wanted to see how well it worked first.
Let me say this: it is a pain in the ass to work with. Because it is thick acrylic paint with sand in it, it is difficult to stir and hard to get all the paint out of the can. The coverage estimate on the box is overestimated, too -- at least it was for me. Our deck is about 10 feet by 25 feet with a 15 foot set of stairs. It took three and half boxes to do two coats. It takes a lot longer to dry than it says. If your deck is as cracked and craggy as mine was, expect to spend a lot of time using a paint brush to get paint into the cracks and then re-rolling to get the texture back. I estimate that it took me about 8 hours total to do both coats.
So, the verdict is still out. If this product keeps our deck looking nice for more than a year, it will have been worth it. However, if I am looking at re-painting next season, it might not be worth your time and considerable effort.
UPDATE (4/29/11): Almost a year in and the paint is still sticking to the deck. It looks OK, but I can see that I will need to pressure wash again this summer (or possibly scrub it with moss/algae remover) because the texture is really good at holding onto moisture. In the Pacific Northwest, that means moss/algae will grow before too long. Having said that, I'm pretty happy with it. Happy enough to boost it from 3 stars to 4.
Last week I pressure washed the 5 year old - previously stained with a semi-transparent deck stain that did not last even a year and a half - 8 X 6 wood deck at the front of our house and the larger, 10 x 12 deck in the back yard.
Today I used the Deck Restorer with above average results. I did not like the included roller. I think it left the surface way to rough and used WAYYYYYYY more product than necessary. I used a 1/2 inch nap roller and that worked perfect for my application.
After getting every last drop of product out of the cans and mixing in a separate bucket I applied the product around the perimeter of the deck with a cheap brush and then aggressively rolled it on with the roller. We had a rare hot day here in NW MT and the paint dried fairly quickly. About 3 hours later I added about 1 quart of water to the remaining 1.5 gallons of paint and again applied it with the roller.
I am actually impressed with how it looks. It did soak into all of the small cracks and dried to a nice even tan. It is a little rough but I think I will buy another kit on clearance this fall and next spring I will add another watered down application with a 3/8" nap roller to soften and further protect the deck.
Now, with all of that said, I cannot imagine how many gallons of product I would have used if I would have followed the application method show on the Deck Restorer video. I was also not impressed with the rollers included with the product.Read more ›
