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!

    Can you use a flat sheen paint with the Deck Revive?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Gulf Synthetics · 07/11/2020
      No, has to be gloss. Once mixed with Deck Revive, it will be a flat shine.

    Does mixing the paint and deck revive change the shade of or lighten the paint color you selected?

    I have a 15 year old deck that was treated for years with Thompson's Water Seal. In June of 2018 I put on Olympic Elite Semi Transparent Stain and Sealer - Wenge color. I power washer prior to application but did not use any stripper or cleaner. We want a lighter color and the Olympic is coming off in areas of the deck. The boards are looking their age and I found Deck Revive and related materials that sound like they would give us a better look and extend the life of the deck. Can I apply the Perma bond, filler and revive without using any type of stripper or sanding the deck?

    The deck is a bit over 500 sq ft - I assume 3 Revive, 3 Permabond and 3 filler - is that correct??

      As long as you remove all the loose or peeling stain you will be okay. The amount is correct except only 1-2 Permabonds.

    i did my deck a couple weeks back and some cracks have reappeared. perhaps i dod not apply the filler sufficiently. Can I just re-do the whole process over the recently refinished areas?

    Hello- I just purchased Deck Revive....should the PermBond go on before or after the PermaFill.
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Gulf Synthetics · 06/26/2020
      Both. Spot apply to any areas that you will use the Permafill. When that dries, apply the Permabond to all.

        So PermaBond areas that need PermaFill, then PermaBond entire deck prior to applying Deck Revive, correct?

    I have a dock that was coated with Dock Revive and some areas now need a "touch up." Is the correct procedure to power wash the dock, allow to dry, coat the areas to be treated with Perma Bond, allow to dry, then apply Deck Revive with a gloss acrylic latex exterior paint of the same color?

    I power-washed my cedar deck two years ago (close enough to remove the top layer of wood to make it look brand new) and covered it with clear Thompson's Water Seal. Now the deck is gray from sun exposure. What prep is required before using the product? If you say "power wash," can I do it lightly and quickly just to get the dirt off? I don't want to go close enough to remove the top layer again.

    Hi Again!! Hubby is making me insane....OK - he wants to pressure wash the deck and is not sure what type of cleaner - if any? - is recommended that does not contain solvents. We don't wanna do anything to screw this up. :) He wants to be sure there's no mold/mildew. There are just a few very small spots where the previous stain hasn't come off and was wondering if OK to use the Jomax on all and then just pressure wash/rinse very well AND THEN be ready to apply the Deck Revive.

    Hi there! We were looking at using Cabot's DeckCorrect (we have lived here 14 yrs and do not know how old the deck is) and the hubby has already cleaned all of the railings, spindles and the base plate boards using Jomax (sp?). Are we at the point that we could order and apply your products? The deck size is 32' x 12' with a small extra area. Thanks!! :)

    Deck was surfaced with what appears to be a restoration product 4 years ago. Owner says it was a Sherwin Williams product and I'm thinking it was Superdeck. The attached photo was taken after pressure wash and scrubbing/before sanding. Vast majority of old product has now been sanded off but some remains on the 4 newer boards. Can I apply Permabond followed by DeckRevive and realistically expect a good end result?

    Jonathan · 06/08/2020
    Is there any reason I can't or shouldn't use DeckRevive on the underside of a raised deck? I think it would give it more of a ceiling look for a possible 3 season patio underneath the deck and the product may add some additional stability if applied to the undercarriage. Any reason I shouldn't do this?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly

      You can do this but it will be a bit difficult just due to gravity when applying.

    After this product is applied.. can you re apply over it down the road or does it need to be sanded off?

      Just repeat the same process when redoing. It does not have to be sanded off.

    I just ordered your Perma Bond and Deck Revive and have a question about the paint/tint added. When using a gallon of paint to "tint" the Deck Revive will the color chosen for the paint lighten as it is added to the Deck Revive. Say I want a dark grey deck, would I have to choose a darker grey paint than what I want the final color to be?

    I last used Olympic Maximum stain/sealant solid color two years ago. Although 30 years old, the pressure treated 2 x 6 pine is still solid with expected cracks and flaws (none really significant and The Olympic product has held-up well. I had originally planed to just do a good cleaning to remove mildew and staining. I'm now planning to pressure wash my deck for preparation prior to using the Perma Bond and Deck Revive. Will pressure washing be sufficient? How long must I wait after pressure washing to apply the Perma Bond?

      Pressure wash for prep. With 48 hours to apply the Permabond after the prep.

    How should an older deck (pressure treated pine) be prepared prior to using perma bond? What if any older finishes remain in some parts? Thanks

      Pressure wash for prep. You can cover the remaining stain.

    Brian · 05/18/2020
    I am a little confused by the yield write up for Deck Revive.

    I have a 1,000 sf deck.If I use a exterior latex paint with a yield of 400sf/gal, how much Deck Revive and how much exterior latex will I need per coat?

    If I start with a coat of PermaBond will I be able to apply one coat of Deck Revive & Exterior Latex? Or will I need two? (Southern exposure lots of sun)


    Must I use Gloss Exterior Latex? Or can I use Semi or Eggshell or Flat?

    Thanks

      -The coverage is 200 sq feet per Deck Revive full kit for two coats after you add the paint. You will need 5 kits for 1000 sq feet.
      -You have to use the Permabond first and you have to apply two coats of the Deck Revive.
      -It must be gloss exterior acrylic latex paint.

    I used Deck Revive about 4-5 years ago on a retaining wall. My retaining wall is showing signs of wear and I want to repaint it with a new coating of Deck revive. I plan to pressure wash it prior to painting is that the correct procedure? Also I patched a small area with concrete about 12" X 5". I was planning on covering that with Deck Revive. Do you see any issues convering the concrete??

    David · 05/12/2020
    I just purchased Fill, Bond and revive from you folks and was wondering on the type of paint I can add. Sherwin williams sells 3 tiers of exterior paints and I was wondering if going with one of the more expensive ones makes sense? I'm sure it wouldnt do any harm but was wondering if anything sherwin uses in the higher tier exterior paints would mess with your product. Could you also clarify if I should be adding the paint to both the deck revive product and the perma bond? Its unclear based on your directions. Thanks in advance!
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Gulf Synthetics · 05/12/2020
      It does not matter if you use more or less expensive paint. Just add to the Deck Revive, not the Permabond.

    I thought I’d read some previous questions on cleaning the deck but I can’t find them. My furniture and plant pots are leaving dark spots on my deck (used deck revive last September). I used a regular deck cleaner but the spots are still there. Anything in particular that should be used? Thanks.

    Morgan · 05/11/2020
    So the color I chose wasn’t perfectly matched - too late to turn back now. Is it possible to throw some stain on over deck revive? I know this will wear off more quickly but would take the edge off the color.

    Before discovering this product, we just filled in any larger gaps in the deck with wood fill. Will deck revive adhere to this as long as we put apply perma bond?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Gulf Synthetics · 05/08/2020
      Yes, it should adhere with no issues but, a regular wood filler does not work very well for decks so it may fail underneath the Deck Revive.

    The PermaFill instruction sheet it states to always use Permabond to prep the surface before using PermaFill, but Step 1 says to mix and Step 2 says to apply with a putty knife. It isn't until Step 5 that mentions using Permabond before using PermaFill. Just want some clarity on which order these two products should be applied.

      Spot treat all areas that you plan on using the Permafill with the Permabond first.
      • We will reply to your comment shortly
        Scott · 05/05/2020
        Ok, but if you have to apply the PermaBond to the entire deck prior to putting on the Deck Revive, why wouldn't you just roll the whole deck with Permabond, let that dry and then use the PermaFill in the spots needed? Once that's dry, then put on the Deck Revive.

        It just seems odd to spot treat with PermaBond, put on PermaFill and then come back and put PermaBond over everything? Or do the areas with PermaFill need to have a coat of the PermaBond after it is put on as well?
        • We will reply to your comment shortly
          Gulf Synthetics · 05/05/2020
          You cannot do that as you have to use the Permabond the same day as the Deck Revive and you ill not be able to get all three done on the same day.

          Yes, the Permabond has to go over the Permafill after it dries.
          • We will reply to your comment shortly
            Scott · 05/05/2020
            I misread your statement. You are saying it CAN'T all be done in one day. Which I guess means I can spot treat today and then do the PermaBond and DeckRevive tomorrow. My apologies for the misunderstanding
          • We will reply to your comment shortly
            Scott · 05/05/2020
            So I couldn't spot treat the with Permabond and PermaFill today and then come back and do the entire deck with PermaBond and DeckRevive tomorrow?

            If I understand you correctly, I have to spot treat cracks/knotholes with PermaBond, let that dry. Then come back with PermaFill on those spots, let that dry. And then come back and use PermaBond on the entire deck, let that dry. And then use DeckRevive. And I'm supposed to do this all in one day? If each coat takes two hours to dry, spot treating with PermaBond is two hours. Then spot treating with with PermaFill is another two hours. Then cover the entire deck with PermaBond is yet another two hours of drying time. Is this correct?
            • We will reply to your comment shortly
              Gulf Synthetics · 05/05/2020
              This is correct but as I mentioned you would not be able to do it all in one day.

              Day One:
              I have to spot treat cracks/knotholes with PermaBond, let that dry. Then come back with PermaFill on those spots, let that dry.

              Day Two:

              And then come back and use PermaBond on the entire deck, let that dry. And then use DeckRevive.

    I bought my house four years ago. I have no idea what is on the deck, but it is peeling and letting water through. Can I use your product if I clean off the old paint with a remover solution or do I have to sand it, or both? Thanks

      Just pressure wash off the loose paint. You can cover the rest with the Deck Revive.
