After--we did this project about a year and a half ago. The Behr DECK OVER product is holding up well. The only place it chipped off was the edge of a step because people have worn it off. I think this would happen with any paint product.
We wound up using Behr solid stain in Slate. We chose it because of its scores on a Consumer Reports test and we generally have had good results from Behr products. Our deck "after" painting. We liked the effect of the old Behr semi-transparent Redwood color showing through, so we left it.
This is excellent news if you have a wood deck that looks old and weathered, or a pool deck that’s cracked and ugly, because you don’t have to replace it anymore. Solid Color Coating is an innovative makeover solution for your old, weathered wood and concrete surfaces. More than a stain, it’s a solid color coating that extends the life of your deck and concrete outdoor living spaces. It’s easy to apply, dries quickly, is slip-resistant, fills cracks up to ¼” and covers splinters.
