I have a wooden deck that needs to be stained or painted. I have always use Thompson's on the deck in my former home. I just heard about this product and am wondering about it. I am not sure I care for the bumpy textured finish and it seems like a lot of work to "paint" the deck with a brush after the second coat to "smooth" it out but I am willing to hear from someone who has experience with it.

If you have used it is it difficult to apply? Does it last? Any advice greatly appreciated.

I know all about Olympic and Thompsons and Behr, I was inquiring about this new product but I do appreciate the response. Thanks.

Have't used this but it looks nice. I also need to have mine done and it is really worn.

I have over a thousand square feet of decking in my yard. Anybody know how much that stuff costs per gallon? Whatever it is, it's probably a heck of a lot cheaper than replacing our 25yr. old deck.

I was just at somebody's house who applied one coat so far. It looks and feels nice and is a big improvement over getting splinters from a wood deck (this is near a pool). The question will be, how long does it last? We won't really know that for a while.

I googled 'deck restore' on Amazon.com and read the reviews for this..
Amazon.com: Customer Reviews: SYNTA INC 49005 "Restore" Deck Restore Kit

It's sold at Home Depot and one reviewer said she thinned it with water so it was easier to apply, and that so far it's lasted 4 years. I'd still rather hear reviews from people here though.

I think he was pointing out that there are many brands of the new finishes than just Rustoleum brand. Not too sure since its been on the market such a short time you get any long terms reports on them.

Since I've read about so many negative experiences with Restore, we've decided to go with Deck Reform on the deck at my parents house. We're almost done pressure washing now. I'll be posting photos and a review when the job is complete.

Good. Thanks, I'd love to see the photos, and hear your overall impression of the product.
