HELP!! DECK refinishing - HELP!!


Has anyone ever used "Restore" Deck stain? Sold by Depot and Ace., the manufacture guarantees it to last for 8yrs, Really? 8yrs on an exterior deck.?
I was thinking of using this product on my deck, instead of stripping, cleaning the deck and re-staining it every few years? I just bought my first home this year and the deck needs a little TLC.. I like the product because it is slip[ resistant, which works for me b/c I have a pool.

that stuff is thick as can be, but coverage per gallon is poor. It may cost a small fortune to do this depending on how large your deck area is.

Not being familiar with the product, I Googled it and found this review, which I think will be helpful to you:

Thanks for your input. So you have used this product? If so, how were the results - long term, short term.?
I know this product is quite expensive, but if it last as long as the say it does, then it's probably worth it

Thanks for the post, it was very helpful! If your advice is as good as you are as painting contractor, I am sure you are probably a very reliable painter.

Not sure if that is sarcasm or not.

Hi!
I have never used that particular brand, but I agree that 8 years may be stretching the marketing a bit. I would keep the product and use it on the deck. Worst case scenario, you will need to restain in a year or two.

You live near me (I'm in Detroit MI) and I know that Chicago winters are harsh. I can never go more than two years without stripping and re-staining. This summer we plan to replace the wood deck boards with composite decking. (Which would also be a good option for you) It's more expensive, but definitely something to look into to when/if you have the funds.

Also, congrats on purchasing your new home! It's always a challenge knowing what to do the first time around. My husband and I own rental property so repairs and maintenance (along with design) is part of our daily lives!

Much success with your project!

Only time a paint warranty is used is with Behr paint.

I found this thread interesting. I have to restore a ten year old deck this summer. It's covered in a thin layer of mold and some of the boards are rotting but I just wan to restore some of the wood to its original look.
