Rated 5 out of 5 by from Navajo Red I would never have recognized my front porch, if I hadn't done it myself. It looks spectacular. And it dried a lot better than I had anticipated. I was at a point where I thought I'd need to replace some of the wood. But after a good power-wash and drying period, I started in. It was easy to use and spreads well. Clean up was a breeze as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grey I used Olympic Max to reseal a concrete porch that had some cracking and flaking on the surface. The product was very easy to apply, flowing easily across the surface and leveling out in cracks and flaked spots. It lasted through a winter season with no problems, preventing further damage to the concrete.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oxford Brown This stain covers easy and helps hide imperfections in the wood. It also helps to seal cracks and splits in the wood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Timberland I was skeptical about the durability of this deck restorer given our sever winters, however, I was pleasantly surprised. It held up through the snow and extreme cold and the only noticeable wear was in the areas where I shoveled a lot (stairs). Definitely a good product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Curry If you do the prep work correctly, you will get a nice result with this product. Definitely need two coats as stated on the can.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fawn Even though we followed all the manufacturer's application instructions, this product epically failed after less than three years. There are places that huge slabs of the product blow off the deck in strong wind. It peels off with fingers in other areas. After spending hundreds of dollars and lots of man power on this project, we are now scraping remaining patches in an attempt to have a usuable deck this summer. I will say it adhered to the spindles and looked nice the first summer. If you are hoping for anything more than that, use a different product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phoenix Fossil Easy to use, resurfaced our deck beautifully it filled in most of the cracks really well but some of the bigger cracks, still less then a 1/4 inch it looked like it was going to fill it while wet and then by the time the paint dried and shrunk it didn't fill it as well even after 2 applications. Boards look almost like new though and seems like it will be a nice non slip surface even when rained on. Overall very pleased so far but only just finished putting it on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dark Brown I used Rescue on my decks a year ago and I am very pleased with it's results and durability. It has been tested in heavy rains, cold and heat and has proved to be outstanding in holding the color and covering. It is everything that it is advertised to be. I have no problem recommending Rescue to anyone needing to preserve the life of their wood deck. I consider it to be an outstanding product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Navajo Red I had previously used this product on my patio because it was chipping. It has been 3 years and it still looks great. My dogs, kids and friends have abused the surface and it doesn't scratch. I just repainted it to add some color and I love the look.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Navajo Red Horrible. Purchased at Lowe's. Paid a professional to use this product on my deck. Paid over $1000 to paint this deck. Deck was prepped and this product was applied. Within the 1st month, the product began to peel off and chip in large areas off the deck. I have a 3 level deck that covers my entire yard. Barely 1 Season later, its completely ruined my deck and now I am not sure how I am going to remove it off my deck or how much it will cost me. It was a complete waste of time and money. Very upsetting. I have always trusted Olympic products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cedar several years ago I used a sanded product from Rustoleum. I was extremely disappointed in that product and swore never to use another Rustoleum product. My deck is 520sq ft and was in need of refinishing. After talking to 3 different Lowes paint associates I chose Rescue It Max. What a pleasure to find a product that did everything the sales person and on-line reviews promised. I'd give this product 10stars if I could. The prep work was easy using the Olympic deck cleaner and I trust I'll be bragging on myself for choosing to do it right this time with Olympic rescue it Max.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Timberline I spent over $700 on this last summer and paid a professional over $700 so i knew it would be prepped and put on correct. I thought i was going to love it because it turned out great. Been a year and it is flaking and peeling in large sections all over my deck. Extremely disappointed because i can't afford to redo again!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Money Saver This stuff went on very easy. I repurposed the deck that was aroung my pool which was in bad shape. After I set up the sections on the back of my house I sanded the surface and used MAX Rescue It and I have a deck that we really enjoy. We saved a lot of money by reusing the pool deck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Bark We put this on our old board walk four years ago and it has held up extremely well even with yearly pressure washing and lots of foot traffic. It hasn't peeled , just a bit of flaking off where I've run over a part of it with the riding mower a few times. Definitely cheaper and easier than replacing tired old boards and looks fantastic.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Gray This product was painted on a boathouse deck and in 2 1/2 years looks terrible and is pealing up in large sections. It was an expensive product that did not preform!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dark autumn Brown, white I spent over $700 on this product. Prepped the deck and applied two coats. Not even a year later and everything is peeling. No clue what I'm going to do now. I absolutely do not recommend this product! I wish I would have just stained it.

The deck and porch was prepped per instructions by a professional and applied by a professional so I know it was applied correctly. Now I am in the process of trying to get this mess off my deck and start over. Spent a lot of money on this product with high hopes, now I'm spending a lot of money in hopes to remove it. Not worth the price, time or value. I would not recommend this product at all.
