Anyone use that heavy paint-like "Restore" coating product
by RustOleum ?
Have a quite old pressure treated wood Deck. Live in New England.
Would appreciate any opinions on, and in particular the pros and cons.
Does it make (any) sense, or just have new wood put down, etc. ?
Last year I replaced the PT decking material with Tiger Wood. Pricey,
but it is what I wanted, looks very classy. It was about $43 a board
and I needed 25 for a 12 x 16 deck.
. The stairs though are in need of an upgrade. I'm thinking Restore
may be just the thing. If I was not replacing the decking and wanted
a repaired surface, it looks easy enough.
I don't have any direct experience, but I did read some reviews a while
back. DAGS and read what others have to say.
As I recall, most users were satisfied with the final results but the
vast majority of the reviews indicated that the coverage indicated on
the container was, shall we say, a bit exaggerated. IIRC people were
getting about half the coverage predicted, but check it out for
yourself, I could be exaggerating too. ;-)
I do recall one reviewer saying that she thinned her's out to make it
easier to apply and to get more coverage, but it was too recent an
application for her to say if she shortened it's lifespan by thinning
it. At a minimum, I'm sure she voided some kind of warranty.
My own gut feeling is that any coating put on top of wood that will be
exposed to the extremes of New England weather isn't going to last as
long as the wood itself and once it starts to fade/peel/crack or
whatever it's going to do, I'm going to hate looking at it.
