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!

    I have a 380sqft deck that was in very poor shape prior to purchasing the house. I found the permabond only covered about 200sqft, so I will need to order another bucket of that. I will just split my deck in half and complete one half first..

    The instructions say the dry compounds should break down completely and the mixture smooth and viscous. My experience is that the mixture was still gritty and not smooth, no matter how long I mixed it. Did I do something wrong?

      No. It is supposed to be gritty not smooth. Not possible for it to be smooth.

    There was an unexpected rain shower the night after coating, is there a suggested fix if it got wet before 24 hour curing process finished?

      it will be fine as long as it was dry before the rain came.

    1) What is the shelf-life? I have 2 unused kits of deck revive left over from a project 4 seasons ago.  Is the product still good to use, or will the chemistry "go bad" after a certain time? 
    2) I'm not sure whether it may have been exposed to freezing temperatures during that time.  If it had, would that harm the liquid resin? 
    3) During that time, we lost one of the 5lb bags of dry chemistry.  is it possible to order an individual bag?
    4) Finally, I see on the permabond label that you can optionally add a quart of paint.  Is this recommended?  will it affect the adhesion properties of the product?
    Thank you.

      1. Shelf life is about 3 years so hard to say if good. Check the liquid to make sure it has a smooth consistency.
      2. If it froze it is bad.
      3. No, it is not.
      4. No, do not add paint to it.

        Daniel · 08/24/2022
        Ok, thank you.  Is there any way to identify if it previsouly froze?  Would it be evident by color or consistency?  The liquid has a smooth milky consistency - no separation or coagulation.

    In the instruction sheet, it notes:

    "If you desire, rusty nails can be spot primed with a rust inhibitive primer
    found at your local paint store. See manufacturers recommended rust inhibitive primer specification sheet."

    1. Where is the manufacturers recommended rust inhibitive primer specification sheet?
    2. I assume this rust inhibitive primer should be applied prior to the PermaBond.  Is this a step that I can do a couple days ahead of time or even a couple weeks? 

    Thank you!
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Gulf Synthetics · 08/02/2022
      1. We do not have one but any rust primer should work.
      2. Apply it first. Does not matter when.

        Thank you for the quick response.

        I’m slowly chipping away at restoring my deck and hope to paint in late September, once the replacement boards I laid in July have a chance to weather and dry out. Most of my deck is old wood that I painstakingly removed what appears to be Behr Deckover from, which revealed some deep cracks and knots that need filling. I plan to use the recommended Quickrete to do this.

        1. Can I fill with Quickrete now, nearly a month before applying DeckRevive?
        2. Must I use Permabond as the primer for the quickrete step? I have not yet ordered my Deck Revive kit and Permabond and would like to be able to do this filling step now while I have some free time. If I can use another primer for this step, would you be able to recommend something?
        3. Deck and stairs total to 315 square feet. I assume 2 Deck Revive kits, 1 gallon Permabond? 
        • We will reply to your comment shortly
          Gulf Synthetics · 08/23/2022
          1. Yes.
          2. Yes use the Permabond prior for best results.
          3. Correct.

    My deck is old and has paint on it from some 7-8yrs ago. I power washed the deck but not sure if I want to go thru removing the paint. Can the revive go on top of old painted deck?

    what is the actual label for the quikrete fast setting filler, I can not find this label!
    can find QUIKRETE Polymer Modified Structural Repair Gray Fast Setting Cement 20-lb Repair but would be concerned of possible leaching moisture/dry rotting

    What is the point of the permabond? My deck is around 20 years with some pretty big cracks and splinters. Do I need to fill those in or just use the Deck Revive? 
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Gulf Synthetics · 06/23/2022
      You must use the Permabond before the Deck Revive. It will not work correctly without it.  Use a filler prior if needed.

          Gulf Synthetics · 06/24/2022
          We would recommend Quikrete Quick Setting Filler as an option. You can buy small plastic containers of it at any local hardware store.

    I used this two years ago on a large deck, and I am very happy. That deck was 26 years old. I now need to do another deck, in better shape, at my cabin. However, there we like to go out on the deck in our bare feet, and the first deck I did too rough after I redid it to do that. Is there an option without the gritty stuff?

    How soon after the primer must the deck revive be used? I worry about having enough sunny/dry/not too hot days ina row to get this all completed?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Gulf Synthetics · 06/12/2022
      You do both on the same day. Apply Permabond, wait an hour or two, and then do the deck revive.

    Will this perma bond adhere to new, regular non pressure treated wood with no built in water repellent?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Gulf Synthetics · 05/31/2022
      No, new wood needs to weather for 3 months or longer and then be prepped.

    I'm wanting to go with a lighter grey but I know it's going to show dirt quicker. How well does this hold up to power washing? Light spray, enough to clean only...not a strong spray for stripping, of course.

    Will the color that gets mixed in remain true to color, or does it get lightened when diluted in the mixture? Is there a certain brand of paint that works better?

      It does not lighten in color. Any brand will work.

    Planning to fill cracks with the recommended Quikcrete filler ahead of the DR. My deck is weathered pretty hard, and most boards have cracks in them at least 1/16". I will fill the biggest ones and knots for sure, but do I need to fill all of the thinner cracks too?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Gulf Synthetics · 05/06/2022
      You actually do not have to fill cracks at all unless you want to for aesthetic reasons.

    Good Morning Deck Revive!  I recently stripped off all the old solid stain on my pressure treated deck and sanded with 60 grit to get the rest off. My deck is 16x16 with a smaller step off of 12x8. How many kits would I need? permabond?

    I also have a few spots of slight rot that I would need to treat. I did buy a pricey rot restore resin to use but wasn’t sure if deck revive would work with it?

    Any recommendations for what paint to add? Brand?

    anything else I need to do?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Gulf Synthetics · 05/03/2022
      Hello,

      You will need:
      -2 Kits of Deck Revive
      -1-2 of the Permabond

      As long as your rot restore is paintable it should work. As for the paint to add, the brand does not matter. Just make it is an acrylic latex gloss exterior paint.

      Clean, reapply the Permabond, then recoat. No stripping.

    Brian · 04/26/2022
    So, both the Deck Revive and Permabond need to have 1 gallon of latex paint added to them?  Won't adding latex paint to these components change their structure and make them prone to peeling since latex paint peels?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Gulf Synthetics · 04/26/2022
      Only the Deck Revive needs the gallon of gloss acrylic latex paint, not the Permabond. It does not peel when the Deck Revive is added to create a superior bond to the wood.

    I have a deck that I will be building a patio underneath, so I'd like the underside to also look nice.
    Any problem coating the underside with this as well?
    Because it's not going to be taking the same wear, would a single coat underneath be sufficient?
    Can I take the board up, prep it, use the deck revive on it, and then put it back down? So I can more easily get the bottom?
    If I'm prepping it with the board off, should I coat over the screws after putting it back on, or should I just leave the screws exposed?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Gulf Synthetics · 04/18/2022
      You can do the underside but it would be overkill. It would be much easier to just use a solid color deck stain that matches the color you pick for the Gulf.

      Just press wash for prep and spot sand only if you have some peeling areas.

      You should be able to get 2 kits to cover the extra 7 feet. It will be close with 1 Permabond so hard to say as it depends on the porosity of the wood.

    I have a coverage question. I measure my porch and steps to be 282 sq ft, round up to 300 sq ft. Your coverage is ~ 200 sq ft per gallon. Do you sell DR in 1/2 gallons? Do I have to mix the entire kit, or can I just mix what I need And how long can it be stored mixed and unmixed? Could I use the leftover for touch up down the road? Thanks!

    Our wood porch and steps need to be repainted. I'm not sure if the previous paint was a step/deck sealer or not. Is there a way to tell? If the surface was sealed, I will need to remove it before using Deck Revive. But if it is just paint, I only need to remove loose material. Is that right?

    Tim · 09/06/2021
    My porch is 8'x14' or 112sq ft.. One kit covers 200sq ft.. I'm assuming that one kit would give me 3 coats instead of 2.. The perma bond also would allow for multiple coats.. Would it be best to only use 1 coat of perma bond (as recommended) or more? The same for the kit, just 2 coats and dispose of rest or use for a 3rd coat?
