Deck Restore Deck and Patio Resurfacer Coating

By: Jodi Marks

Rolling Deck Restore coating on concrete porch floor.

Deck Restore is a thick, latex coating that can be rolled on weathered wood decks and concrete patios to fill cracks and provide a durable surface that’s mildew and UV resistant.

To apply Deck Restore:

  1. Clean and repair the deck.
  2. Apply the first coat of Deck Restore using the included roller.
  3. Allow the first coat to dry (3-6 hours or more).
  4. Roll on a second coat of Deck Restore.
  5. Allow the second coat to dry for at least 24 hours before using.

Deck Restore is available at The Home Depot.

Jodi Marks: Now, if your deck or your patio is in need of a little facelift, look no further than this aisle right here. I’m in the paint department, and I want to talk to you about Restore. Now this is a resurfacer that’s perfect for your decking or your concrete patio.

How do you apply it? Well, it comes in two gallon paint cans, and it also comes with this nine-inch, heavy-duty, textured roller. And all you simply do is just roll it right over the surface.

Now, if you do have decking that’s got splinters or cracks, Restore will actually fill in those cracks and it’ll lock down the splinters. If you got a slippery, concrete patio, this will be great, because it creates a textured surface, which makes it slip-resistant.

Now, if you don’t want the textured look after you roll it on with this roller, all you have to do is take a brush and you can just go right over the second coat to smooth that out. This is a perfect weekend project that you can do in no time to help transform the look of your outdoor living space.

    Hi, Josephine,
    These types of products have recently raised concerns (even class-action lawsuits); we don’t recommend using them.
    Here’s information on how to repair a peeling deck:
    Good luck!

    Hi there,
    I used restore on my back deck. It is a rather large deck. I am looking to remove because it has bubbbled and peeled over time. I hope to go back to the natural wood and just stain it. Please help

    I agree with Maryellen, very disappointed in the product.
    Followed all the instructions to the letter and after being dry for a week, five hours of rain caused bubbling.
    Not good !!!

    We used the restore 4x deck coat on our patio we are not happy with the product. We let it dry completely for 7 days before we even walked on it. Today some water got on it and started making bubbles in one area. Our dogs drink there water out on the patio, and it leaves stain marks that don’t wipe up. The product was done on a clean surface. Very disappointed.
