A Clean and Sound Surface is Required.
Your deck surface must be clean and sound. Properly prepare your deck before application.
  • Remove dirt, oil, grease, mold/mildew, or any other debris or stain on the surface
  • Replace rotting or unstable boards
  • Remove loose wood fibers or wood fuzz
  • Remove peeling paint/coating
  • Make sure the deck has been constructed according to standard building codes
Your Surface Must be Completely Dry.
Apply ADVANCED DECKOVER Coating only on a completely dry surface. After cleaning with water and appropriate cleaning products, allow a minimum of 24 hours of dry time.
  • If you live in a high-moisture region, allow for a longer dry time
  • If weather conditions are damp, allow for a longer dry time
  • Do not apply in direct sunlight.
  • If rain is predicted within 24 hours, don't apply
  • Do not apply under foggy, high-moisture, or cool temperature conditions
  • Ensure that the wood surface has adequate board spacing to allow for proper air circulation
Where You Apply is Important.
  • Properly prepared wood and composite surfaces (such as decks and railings)
  • Properly prepared concrete surfaces (such as pool decks and patios)
  • Properly prepared pressure-treated wood
  • Drivable surfaces (such as garages and driveways)
  • Plywood or compressed wood
  • Any architectural plastics (such as vinyl siding or conduits)
  • Wood surfaces that are in direct contact with the ground or exposed to excessive ground moisture.

Recommended for properly prepared exterior weathered or cracked horizontal and vertical wood and composite surfaces such as Decks, Railings, Porches and Boat Docks. Also great for concrete surfaces such as Pool Decks, Patios and Sidewalks. Do not use on drivable surfaces such as garage floors and driveways.

The following steps and products are recommended for best results.

  • All surfaces must be clean, sound, dry and free of any dirt, oil, and grease before application.
  • Wood Surfaces: Replace rotting or unstable boards and remove loose splinters. Remove mildew stains, dirt, oil and grease with a product such as BEHR PREMIUM® NO. 63 All-In-One Wood Cleaner prior to application.
  • Use a product such as BEHR PREMIUM NO. 64 Wood Stain & Finish Stripper (must be followed by NO. 63) to remove all loose wood fibers, peeling paint/stain or deteriorated coatings prior to application of DeckOver.
  • On new wood, use NO. 63 to remove mill glaze and open the pores of the wood. Rinse thoroughly and allow to dry before coating.
  • Concrete Surfaces: Avoid areas that are structurally weak or subject to hydrostatic pressure above 8 psi. Allow new surfaces to cure for 30 days.
  • Use a stripper product to strip peeling coating.
  • Use an etcher product to clean and etch uncoated concrete or NO. 990 Concrete & Masonry Degreaser & Cleaner on sound coated surfaces prior to coating.
  • Use product when air and surface temperatures are between 50-90˚ F (10-32˚ C).
  • During application, avoid exposure of container to direct sunlight. Do not use if rain is expected within 24 hours.
  • Intermix multiple containers to ensure color uniformity.
  • Stir product occasionally throughout application. DO NOT THIN PRODUCT.
  • For nail holes and cracks up to 1/4", completely fill in with DeckOver coating using a nylon/polyester brush and allow to dry prior to rolling. Deep nail holes and cracks may require additional filling.
  • For edges, corners and in between wood boards, apply using a nylon/polyester brush. Use pressure while rolling and apply a generous, even coat using a 1/4-1/2" nap roller. For a smoother texture, use a brush or thinner nap roller (i.e. 1/4").
  • For vertical surfaces such as railings, use a nylon/polyester brush or roller and apply two thin coats at a spread rate of 400 sq. ft. per gallon.
  • Airless spray is recommended for experienced applicators only; use a .027" - .035" tip with no mesh filter at 2400-3200psi.
  • When spraying vertical surfaces, apply a very thin coat (one pass only) and do not back brush/roll.
  • When spraying horizontal surfaces, follow the standard spread rate of 75 sq. ft. per gallon.
  • For optimum performance, film uniformity, leveling and to cover cracks, a second coat MUST be applied.
  • Maintain a wet edge when applying.
  • 4-6 hours before recoat. Dries to touch in 4 hours.
  • Wait 24-48 hours before light foot traffic. 72 hours to full cure.
