There is a great new product out this year by BEHR called DECKOVER. Its a thick 100% acrylic, resin fused - ceramic, slip resistant coating that comes in 54 solid colors.
Recently I had a chance to try it out on a beautifully built deck that provided many opportunities to see how easy the product was to apply.
After washing the surface and letting it dry - we first applied BEHR's premium solid stain to all the spindles, posts, and deck skirting. Doing all the brush work before coating the floor will help prevent drips and spatters from getting on the surface. *Notice that the spindle/post color is different from the floor color.
The floor took less time and effort to apply the coating rather than some other "textured" coatings that require a special roller.
We also applied the DECkOVER on the handrails for extra protection. I was very impressed with the final product and the ease in which it was applied.
