NOTE: You must use PermaBond as a primer coat and is purchased separately. 

Deck Revive Full Kit Coverage: Depending on the condition of the wood and the application technique, two coats will cover approximately 200 square feet.

DeckRevive is a one-of-a-kind polymer coating that resurfaces and restores aging wood decks, walkways, steps and more, allowing you to enjoy your existing structure for years! Just add one gallon of gloss exterior acrylic latex paint of any color and roll on with everyday paint tools.

  • locks down splinters
  • fills in cracks
  • slip-resistant
  • environmentally friendly

Deck Revive is a DIY acrylic based polymer deck coating that resurfaces old decks, docks, and other treated lumber — in ANY color you choose.  Deck Revive repairs and protects wood structures from the constant expansion and contraction cycle that destroys wood.

Traditional deck stains, deck paints, and deck sealers just put new color on old splinters, cracks, and nailheads and have to be re-applied annually.  Deck Revive actually fills in cracks and knots,  locks down splinters and nailheads,  and provides a new slip-resistant textured surface that lasts for years.

Our Deck Revive coating will give you a new durable, scuff, stain and fire-resistant surface that requires zero to little maintenance.  So easy to apply with everyday paintbrushes and rollers and tools clean up with water.  Dries quickly for minimal time-out-of-service.  It can be applied in the morning and enjoyed that evening.

Your Deck Revive kit contains a liquid component and a dry component.   To these, you add one gallon of ANY color of exterior latex paint.  Color choice is unlimited – you can have any color your paint store can mix up!

Deck Revive is an environmentally-friendly choice.  It is water-based, VOC-free and non-toxic.  When you refurbish existing wood structures with Deck Revive, you prolong their service life and keep them out of landfills.

Save thousands over the cost of replacement or annual deck stain and deck seal maintenance when you choose Deck Revive.  You’ll also save time — so you can spend more of it enjoying your outdoor living spaces, not maintaining them!

So take your shoes off and start enjoying your old deck with our revolutionary resurfacing coating. Your family, friends, and kids can run around splinter free for years to come.

Not an inquiry, just a glowing review .... Just finished my last two 200 sq ft porches on my home. I have 4, two on the front of the house and two on the back. I believe it's been 3 years since I covered the first one and it still looks like it did when I first applied your Deck Revive. For my last one, I had my son helping me and since the process went quicker, the finish turned out better then when I did it by myself. Also what helped was I used 3 inch painters tape around any columns and anywhere else that I would have otherwise had to use a paint brush, which allowed me to use a roller for the entire job which made it so much quicker and easier on the back. That would be my recommendations for a large application. Love your product, surprised that some or the big box stores haven't contacted you.

We used this about two years ago, and it\'s been great! We haven\'t had one little patch come off yet. The Deck Revive/Perma Bond combo has been awesome. It's more expensive, but you'll make your money back in all the saved labor when you only have to seal your deck once. Follow directions, do it right the first time, and you'll save yourself a lot of time and money. Note: I did NOT receive any free/discounted product for this review. It\'s hard to find information about this product, so i wanted to post this review to help others looking for a quality deck sealer.

In the spring of 2017 my wife and I purchased a small cabin in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. The cabin had a deck that needed some TLC. The low humidity sun filled days had taken a toll on the wood. I searched the internet for something more than stain. I found Gulf Synthetics Deck Revive Kit. I purchased the Perma Bond and Deck Revive. Strictly following the step by step procedure produced a really nice result. I was impressed. It looked great. But how would it hold up. After one year it still looks like the day I put it on. No peeling. The old saying you get what you pay for could not be more true here. I am very satisfied with ther products and would highly recommend them.

So far so good - we just painted our very old deck and it actually looks and feels good on our feet. Hooray!

Used this product last year in 2015 and looks great after the first Winter. No issue with any peeling! Application was easy. Really like the Perma Bond primer. Makes it really easy for the Deck Revive to adhere to our old deck paint. So far so good!

    Sorry to "piecemeal" my questions but I'm asking them as they occur to me. If when pressure washing a wood deck one creates wood "fuzzies"/raised fibers is that an issue with Deck Revive?

    If wood deck has been treated with semi-transparent oil based stain how long does it need to "season" before applying Deck Revive and what prep would need to be done?

      As long as you pressure wash first and the Thompsons was not just recently applied in the last month or two, you should be good.

    We are wanting to use Deck Revive and have prepped the deck surface (sanded off loose paint, etc.). We replaced some rotted boards with new pressure treated ones (YellaWood). Do we need to do anything special to the new boards before using Deck Revive?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Gulf Synthetics · 03/20/2020
      The new boards will need to weather for a few months first and then pressure wash for the prep.

    Don · 03/12/2020
    When selecting the acrylic latex colored paint and mixing with the DR components, is there any dilution of the color? (i.e. does the color of the paint become lighter than the original paint color after mixing?). If the color does become lighter, how do I compensate to achieve my desired color?

    Thanks

      Yes but you just pressure wash first and use the Permabond prior to the DeckRevive.

      You can use the Deck Revive over composite wood. You would want the Concrete Revive for the cement walkways.

    What de-icing agents can you use on a deck with deck revive. Is it safe to use salt, calcium chloride, CMA?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Gulf Synthetics · 12/20/2019
      Unfortunately, we have never tested to see if there will or will not be any issues with de-icing salts. We doubt there will be but always best to use the least aggressive type.

    Purchased and mixed products (PermaBond, DeckRevive & dry ingredients & gloss ext Latex paint) as directed but final result was very, very rough sand paper deck with surface of raised sand granules. Did I get kits with bad sand mix ratios? Is there something I can do with remaining kit like removing sand (how?) and applying it as a smoother top coat?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Gulf Synthetics · 11/18/2019
      The Deck Revive is supposed to have a gritty texture. It is not supposed to be smooth. You cannot apply anything over it to "smooth" it out or remove the grit from the remaining kit.

    We have a large porch that is about 90% covered by roof. However driving rain and snow at times covers most of the surface. The porch pitch is insufficient and water does not readily run of.),
    (Unlike a deck the porch is covered with pine tongue and groove planking that is mostly in good condition, a few boards will need to be replaced.),
    (The floor has no real openings to drain water between the boards but just small gaps typically of a tongue and groove flooring and also not enough pitch to shed water. So at times there is some standing water and it does seep into the tongue and groove gaps. Will this type of flooring work with the GULF Synthetic or is it strictly designed for decking with wider gaps?),

    I applied the Deck Revive to most of my deck yesterday but ran out of the Perma Bond. The temp during the day today (when I would be applying) will be around 50 degrees, but tonight the temp will be dipping down to 35. The Revive will be on the deck for about 8-10 hours before the temps dip into the 30's. Will this be ok?

      As long as it is an acrylic latex gloss paint, it does not matter the brand or series of the brand.

    I have an older 18 x 14 deck ( Not counting side railings) that I tried using Olympic Deck Renew a few years ago. A DISASTER !! I have been contemplating rebuilding the deck but came across your product as a possible alternative. I have power washed this deck and gotten 50% of the Olympic off. <br>My concern is with that condition what will my potential success be with Revive ?<br>How much Product do I need for the deck ? And if I add the railings ( 50 Lin.Ft. x 4ft high) <br><br>I want to make assure I have enough product for the project. Also with the need to put down the Permabond first, Am I better to split this deck in half and allow 1 day each ? I am a Older One Man Band and don't want to screw up this expense.

    Deck is around 475 sqft plus 100 vertical posts. How much product should I buy, to include for filling in holes with Permafill? Can the Permafill be done a day or two prior to the DeckRevive? Will do another coat of Permabond beforehand. I think by my calculations i need 3 DeckRevive,, 2 PermaBond, 1 permafill - based on the number of cracks we need to fill. Thank you.
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Gulf Synthetics · 09/09/2019
      Yes on the product amount needed and you can do the Permafill a few days prior.

    Katy · 09/07/2019
    Upon further review, I don't think they used Rescue It, just exterior paint. We had no issues with bubbling up and it doesn't look like it does in videos. So will move forward with pressure washing loose paint but not stripping/sanding, unless that is recommended. Thanks!

    Katy · 09/07/2019
    My deck was most likely done with Olympic Rescue It before we bought the house, based on looking at photos of the product and the specific color, though we are not sure. It lasted about two years, and now we are in year 4 and really need to redo it. When trying to look up what products to use with since it’s in poor condition, came across DeckRevive. My question – do we have to completely remove the Rescue It paint or can we just pressure wash and remove loose paint and then start with the PermaBond and then the Revive? Sorry if has already been asked! I know you have to completely remove the DeckOver before doing DeckRevive, but this doesn’t have any texture/grit to it, just paint. Thank you in advance!

      As long as all the peeling coating is removed, you can paint over the rest.

    I'm rebuilding a deck on usonian house from 1955. I rebuilt it with tongue in groove pine because that's what the architect's original plans called for. The local paint store recommended sealing it with Cabot solid color acrylic deck stain. That hasn't worked. Can I use your product over the stain? Do I still need to prime it first with Permabond?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Gulf Synthetics · 08/06/2019
      Yes, you must use the Permabond. You can apply over the Cabot after pressure washing to remove any loose or peeling stain.

    So 2 coats cover 200 sq. ft.? It looks like a 5 gallon container so is that 40 sq. ft. per gallon?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Gulf Synthetics · 08/06/2019
      No, it is not a 5-gallons of active product. It comes in a 5-gallon container with the active ingredients that are all mixed together. About 3 gallons when mixed.

    Does Deck Revive do well in South Florida? Current deck was stained about 5 years ago with Defy Extreme stain but many planks have been replaced so bare PT wood (over 2 months). The deck is 1000 square feet. I plan on using a yellowish/beige paint to mix with this - to match house and fence. In South Florida, will the heat cause a problem of deck getting too hot?<br>The entire deck will be pressure cleaned - does the Deck Revive have to be used right away?<br>Where can this be purchased? I thought I saw it was on Amazon.

    Mike · 07/19/2019
    I have a complicated deck system with entertainment areas, walkways, and stairs. I used Deck Helmet some 5 - 7 years ago with ok results. Some of the deck areas are still good; other areas are bad. The bad wood decking has been replaced new pressure treated wood. So I now have a mixture of old Deck Helmet and new, raw wood. I really, really don't want to remove the "good" Deck Helmet material. Can I put Deck Revive over the "good" Deck Helmet for a consistent look? Can I just apply Deck Revive to the new wood and color match it to the Deck Helmet? Any suggestions?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Gulf Synthetics · 07/19/2019
      Yes, you can do that. The new wood needs to weather for 3 months.

      The Permabond needs to be applied the same day as the Deck Revive. You could do the Permafill the day before.

    I used Behr Weatherproof Solid color latex deck stain. Do I need to sand it off or is power washing the loose stain sufficient? If the cracks don’t bother me, can Inskip the filler step or is it important for durability. I live in Michigan. Deck gets full sun.

      Just pressure wash off all the loose stain will work. You do not have to use the filler.

    I have a 20 year old wood deck and I would like to use your Deck Revive product. I have 3 questions. I have stripped all of the old paint with a grinder and sanded the surface with 60 grit paper. The deck is in good shape but I patched 3 spots with bondo wood filler. Can I use your product over the bondo? Is your filler product sandable (to get a smooth surface)? What is finished surface of your product (smooth/slippery when wet or does it have some texture)? Thanks
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Gulf Synthetics · 06/21/2019
      It can go over it but the Bondo may have issues as it does not work that well on exterior wood. Meaning if the Bondo fails under the Deck Revive, that would be an issue with the Bondo, not the DR. Finish has texture/grit when dry.

    I applied Behrs deck over on my deck about 4 years ago and it began peeling with in a year. I am in the process of removing it using a heat gun and puffy knife. Some areas still have a very thin,well adhered coating. Will I be able to put deck revive over it?

      The Behr should be removed as much as possible so that does not "fail" under the Deck Revive.
