Restore is great for use on a concrete pool deck as long as the concrete is broom swept. The product will not properly adhere to surfaces that are smooth or with exposed aggregate (such as a chattahoochee deck). Please keep in mind, just like any painted surface Restore will become hot when exposed to the sun. Because of this, we recommend using our lightest colors such as Beach or Cape Cod Gray. Lighter colors reflect light while darker colors attract and absorb it.

Restore products are made to last and adhere for long periods of time (10-12+ years) with proper maintenance. Deck & Concrete Restore can be painted over with a water based floor paint, a solid acrylic stain, or another coat of Restore. Clean the existing product and apply the new coating.

Hi Donna,
It should last for years if applied properly. If it is still sticking tightly to the surface you should not need to remove it before repainting. If it has come loose or peels off easily then remove it before repainting.
I have one spot on my porch that excess water got to and loosened the paint and wrecked the plywood, so I will have to strip that spot and replace the plywood before repainting.
Hope this helps.

Yes, Deck & Concrete Restore holds up very well in cold climates. The slip resistant surface is great in the winter months! We do recommend using less aggressive snow melts and a plastic shovel instead of a metal one to avoid scratching the surface.

Hi, my name is James and I just finished rebuiding my deck with pre treated lumber from HomeDepot. I planned to use the Restore product in order to extend the life of my deck. My deck's deminsions are currently 25x16. I've read some of the other comments about this product and would like to know how easy or difficult it will be to do this myself. I know how to paint. Will this experience be enough to accomplish applying the Restore product and having great results?

Hi, James! Restore is a thicker coating than paint but goes on in a very similar fashion. Using the Restore Roller and applying slowly in one direction, you should have no problems achieving great results. Make sure you follow the instructions and watch the video for great tips on how to best apply the coating. Keep in mind that new wood should age for a minimum of 6 months before applying Restore. The lumber must be completely dry to ensure proper adhesion. Good luck with your application!

It's easy to apply. I used the special roller to give it a rougher texture to make it a more non-slip surface. I applied it to untreated plywood so check the instructions or ask about applying it to pre- treated lumber. If you mean pressure treated lumber, ask the expert in the paint department.?

Yes. It should be applied when the temp is 50º F or above. I'd also check the weather report.
It's best if there is no rain forecast for at least 24 hours after you apply Restore.

Hi there bonnie,

Yes, the Deck Restore product can be applied to a previously panted surface. Do make sure though that any flaking areas of paint are properly removed first though and that any glossy surfaces be sanded first.

Just scrape any loose paint off and clean the surface with a blower or vacuum cleaner. See the directions on the can.
