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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible stuff Put on by instructions. Looked good for summer. Started coming off in Fall. After winter was a total MESS. Biggest mistake I have ever made. COSTLY MISTAKE AS WELL. Wrote Olympic and the could care less. Read reviews and they are pathetic. Be WARNED.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from EPIC FAIL For the love of all things Holy, people, DONT DO IT. We spent so much time and effort prepping our beautiful deck for this stuff, not to mention the COST. Here a year into the finished product, it’s peeling off....sometimes in big sheets. It looks like a poor white trash place. I cannot stress enough...DONT DO IT!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad idea! We bought this at end of summer 2017.... Here it is beginning if summer 2018 and it's already bubbling up and peeling off. We did all the cleaning steps....took our time..... Did it right....still it's coming off and in less than a year.... we've not even gotten to use it a full season...... another bad thing is that it makes the surface incredibly HOT..... There is no going barefoot when it's even the slightest bit warm outside. Please do not make the mistake of using this on your deck...total waste of time and money

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Starts peeling off after the first winter This stuff never adhered well to my deck, and not just in areas that had knotholes. I spent a ton of time money to refurbish my old deck - but this stuff doesn't last and now my deck is even worse than when I started. Touch-ups don't last either, and it fades after a few years so the touch-ups are darker than the older coat.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don’t waste your time and money Used 16 gallons on my deck. Followed directions exactly, even gave it extra time to ensure wood was dry. Looked great until it snowed. Product bubbled and came off in sheets. Photo doesn’t do it justice as every time it rains more moisture seeps underneath and more sheets of coating comes off.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Autumn Brown Our deck was old and worn out. Olympic Rescue It saved it and brought it back to life. The deck is smooth and looks like new. The Autumn Brown color does show pollen and dirt though.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Aqua smoke I spent hours prepping my deck for the application of this product. I applied the product as directed. It looked great for one year.

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.
