Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great on concrete Okay, I can't comment on how this does with wood, but it really does make my concrete deck look wonderful. A few tips: 1.) This doesn't play well with worn out/chipping/peeling paint. Scrape that off before hand. 2.) This stuff is thick, not typical paint thick, but more like tar thick, be prepared to have a normal paint stick break. 3.) The base coat doesn't go very far, 75 sq. ft. might have even been a stretch for me. The top layer will go much further. Speaking of that, you will need two coats. Like anything, do it right and you will be happy, give it 50% and you probably won't be. Happy painting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great if you follow the directions. This product works great, three years later it still looks like I just put it on my deck. When applying this product some common sense is needed. The deck should be cleaned. The wood must be dry, I had a let mine dry for a week and have not had any problems. My deck is 32 years old and had a lot of checking but now it looks great. Thank you Olympic for a great product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice color, easy application, not too durable... Attempted to fix, or rescue, my deck. Followed the instructions. Applied it and waited before traffic and replacing objects. Within days, it started peeling, even in areas that were barely touched and rails that had no heavy weights on them. To be fair, my deck's wood was not the greatest, but it wasn't too bad. I have had to reapply twice already - which is not a hard process now since the main layer was a good one. However, it peels easily and even the latest coat started peeling, and only after a few days. It does NOT prevents t algae growth on it... And I cannot clean it with a pressure washer or anything harder than a soft brush (my microfiber brush/hose for my cars) or it will peel. And now, the retailers don't have anymore of it, so I have to wait to finish the treatment. Not too pleased.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I just want to cry! We put this on my older deck, I bought two large containers. I am so disappointed I just want to cry. It was good for the summer after I put it on but by spring it was pealing! I spend all day trying to get the pealing rescue it off. It's still not all off and my deck looks terrible. I can't stain it now because it's not all off. Thank you for ruining my deck and wasting a ton of my time and money!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible product We used this two years ago and it was awful. Started peeling up almost immediately. Now we are trying to get it off so we can use stain instead. The issue now is what little stayed on, won't come off. I would heavily advise against this product. I would rate it a negative number if I could.
