        The ads for Rust-Oleum Deck Restore look good, but I wonder how good. Does anyone have experience with this stuff on their wood deck? Thank you,

        I've seen the ads but haven't tried it. I looked at www.viewpoints.com and no one has reviewed it there yet.

        It does have a number of reviews at Amazon.

        Any advice given here is general in nature and is not necessarily valid for your given area. If in doubt check with your local codes enforcement department for what is required when doing electrical, plumbing or structural work on your house. Permits may or may not be required in your area and home owners may not be able to DIY some tasks. I have no way of knowing if you have the skills needed to complete the tasks you are asking about, when in doubt seek professional assistance.

        My advice may be worth exactly what you pay me for it. :-) For the record I did not stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night.

        There was a similar post using a relatively new substance on a deck and there were several comments, but I was unable to find the post. As I recall, the appearance wasn't particularly aesthetic, but I'm not sure if it was the same as what Goomba refers to.

        Sure wish there was a functional search option for the posts.

        It's a thick, goopy, plastic-like compound that will cover a lot of sins in the decking. It sure is ugly though.

        I've looked at samples of both Restore and Behr Deckover at Home Depot. Restore has a much higher "build" (i.e.: it is thicker). My guess is that Restore will last longer, but esthetically it looks more like composite and less like wood. The fact that it has a higher build also means that it requires more effort to prevent "bridging" between boards. It is a matter of personal preference, but if I resurface my deck, I'll use Deckover.

        I appreciate the advice. Joe, I agree with you about Restore's appearance. Looks like some little kids did something nasty to the floorboards. I'll check out the Behr Deckover this week.
