Usage Summary
Surface Preparation†

Proper surface preparation is required.

  • All surfaces must be clean, sound, dry and free of any dirt, oil and grease before application.



  • Replace rotting or splitting boards and remove loose splinters.
  • To remove failing coatings or to remove loose wood fibers, use a product such as BEHR PREMIUM® No. 64 Wood Stain & Finish Stripper followed by BEHR PREMIUM No. 63 All-In-One Wood Cleaner to neutralize the wood. 
  • When stripping is not needed, the surface MUST be prepared with a product such as No. 63 Wood Cleaner to remove mill glaze and clean the wood surface. 
  • After using either No. 64 or No. 63, rinse thoroughly with a garden hose or pressure washer. When rinsing with a pressure washer, use the broadest spray pattern while keeping the nozzle at least 24" away from the surface. 
  • Allow the area to dry at least 24 hours before coating. 
  • If needed, lightly sand to remove any wood fibers/fuzz. 



  • Avoid areas that are structurally weak or subject to hydrostatic pressure above 8 psi. 
  • Allow new surfaces to cure for 30 days. 
  • Clean and etch surface using a product such as a muriatic acid etcher to achieve a textured profile similar to 150 grit sandpaper. 
  • If the previous coating is failing or peeling, use a paint stripper to remove old coating.
  • Use product when air and surface temperatures are between 50-90˚ F (10-32˚ C). 
  • Avoid applying in direct sunlight or to hot surfaces. 
  • Do not use if rain is expected within 24 hours. 
  • The surface must be completely dry before application. 
  • Avoid painting if humidity is expected to be greater than 80%. 
  • Intermix multiple containers to ensure color uniformity. 
  • Stir product occasionally throughout application.  May thin with up to 8 oz. of clean water per gallon.
  • For nail holes and cracks up to 1/4", completely fill in with Extra Textured 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 the DECKOVER Extra Textured Roller Cover. 
  • 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. 
  • Do not use with airless sprayer. 
  • For optimum performance, film uniformity, leveling and to cover cracks, a second coat MUST be applied. 
  • Maintain a wet edge when applying.
Dry Time
  • 4-6 hours before recoat. 
  • Dries to touch in 4 hours. 
  • Wait 24-48 hours before light foot traffic. 72 hours to full cure. Additional dry time may be needed in cooler temperatures and higher humidity. 
  • Premature heavy traffic will cause coating failure.


  • For disposal of empty containers and unused product contact your household refuse collection service.

BEHR PREMIUM Extra Textured DECKOVER® is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 30.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth It Our deck was built in 2001 and hasn't really been taken care of properly. It had peeling paint, bare spots, and so many cracks i couldn't count them. I prepped the deck per the instructions using the Behr products. The only thing I found was, because of all the cracks, I couldn't use the roller for the first coat, I actually brushed it on. I rolled the second coat, but the roller sleeve kept sliding off the roller; my roller is old. This job took a lot of time and effort, but boy was it worth it. All I can say is WOW; this deck looks new.
