Hello t4ralph!


Behr recommends using All-In-One, a deck cleaner that does not require power washing.

The product removes mold and mildew stains as well as about one-third of existing coatings to prepare the wood for DeckOver.


Apply and use a scrub brush in area where heavy stains or mildew are visible.


Do not allow the product to dry on the surface.


Use your garden hose to rinse within ten-minutes.


The label specifically says, "Do not use high pressure."


Allow the surface to dry about 5-6 hours and apply DeckOver using a 1/4th, 3/8ths, or 1/2-inch nap roller cover.


Most people are applying DeckOver with a 3/8ths nap for a smooth finish ... 1/2-inch nap will create slightly more texture.



DeckOver contains a ceramic bead that creates traction regardless of which applicator you choose.
