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!

    Hello, I have had it planned to use Deck Revive for a couple weeks, yet the weather hasn’t cooperated since it has been raining every other day. I have planned to start tomorrow (Thursday) and the forecast just updated stating rain is possible around 1pm on Friday. Currently the temperatures forecasted are highs in the low 70s and lows in the high 50s. If I apply Deck Revive Thursday morning to late afternoon on Thursday, would the Deck Revive have enough time to cure before noon on Friday when there is a possibility it could rain?

        Ok, just to be prepared if the forecast changes. If I finish the second coat around 4pm, what would be the earliest time if it rains that I would be ok? i.e, 2am Friday ok? Just an example and prepping.

    I have a question about replaced pressure treated boards...can the rest of the deck be treated with deck revive while waiting for the boards to weather (they were replaced in early August...3 months would be November in CT)..or should we wait until next spring. The rest of the deck had a semi transparent stain a few years ago and is pretty beat up looking...can a moisture meter be used to determine if the boards are dry enough? What is an acceptable level?

      Do it all at the same time is the correct way. Spring would best. It has nothing to do with moisture but porosity.

    What kind of yearly maintenance do you recommend once painted with Deck Revive? Power wash once a year? What do you recommend to remove minor stains, etc.? Thanks.

    how do I know that my deck needs 2 coats of Deck Revive used with the Perma Bond?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Gulf Synthetics · 09/10/2020
      You always have to apply 2 coats of Deck Evive and you must use the Perma Bond first.

    I prepared my deck by power washing (water only) and sanded off any peeling stain. It then rained the day after. Once the deck dries out in 48 hours do I need to prepare again by power washing/sanding? Or will it be good to proceed with Permabond/Deck Revive without preparing the surface again?

    I am preparing my deck for deck revive. We previously used DeckOver (7 years ago) with poor results. I‘ve scraped all of the deck where peeling occurred and sanded the surface of the remaining portions of the deck where DeckOver is still adhered using a belt and palm sander. Will this be sufficient to apply Deck Revive with perm abound etc.?

    We did our deck with the Deck Revive product 90 days ago and it turned out great. Since then we have repainted the house and now we want to change the color of the deck.

    We have no cracks to fill and nothing to repair because we just did everything. Can we just paint over the Deck Revive surface? Or do we need to use Deck Revive product?

    If we do have to use the product, can we just use the bonding agent and then paint without mixing anything with the paint? Or, do we have to use the bonding agent and the material you mix with the paint as well?

    Advice to others - get an approval from your wife on color BEFORE you paint and save time, money and effort. . . . Happy Wife - Happy Life. . . .

    Thanks

      You cannot paint over it with a different product. You will need to redo the entire process.

    Would this product work well covering knots and boards with heavy sap leakage?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly

      It will cover the knots, etc. but it will not stop sap from leaching out.

    Do you recommend painting the underside of exposed stair treads? Is there a volume discount at a certain threshold? Thank you.

      No need to stain undersides. We do not have a volume discount.

    what is the most likely outcome if perma bond and deck revive are not applied the same day?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Gulf Synthetics · 08/24/2020
      It could lead to it not adhering and then peeling down the road.

    Is gloss or high gloss better?
  • We will reply to your comment shortly
    Kevin Painter · 08/24/2020
    Or is this paint better? It doesn’t mention enamel and is from Sherwin Williams? Let me know if Behr is good or the Sherwin Williams is better. Appreciate the advice, want to get this right.

      We would use this over the Behr but either should be okay.

    Hello, understand the paint mixed needs to be gloss acrylic latex. The attached picture of the paint product details states 100% acrylic latex yet also states enamel in the product title. Will this paint work?

    Hello, getting ready to use Perma Fill, Perma Bond and Deck Revive next weekend. Have a few questions.
    1) Do you recommend using Perma Fill over the screw heads?
    2) Is there a list of tools or things I may need to have on hand? I have the 3/4 & 3/8 rollers, paint brushes, the gloss paint, and mineral spirits for cleanup already. Trying to make sure I have everything/anything needed to avoid having to go to the store on the day I’m applying.
    3) I will be doing the post railings white and the rest of the deck gray. If I do the post railings first, how long do I have to wait to put on tape on the white railings so I can cut and get clean lines of the gray?
    4) Is blue tape, frog tape or another type of tape preferred to be used?
    5) Applying these products this year, how long do they last? Or how long until you recommend redoing the deck with Deck Revive again?

      Gulf Synthetics · 08/24/2020
      1. No.
      2. You are good but mineral spirits will not work with water-based coatings.
      3. 24-48 hours.
      4. Does not matter.
      5. Every few years but possibly longer.

    My deck is about 400sf, can I do half one day and then half another day. I know the perma bond must go on the same day the deck revive does.

    I scrubbed deck with TSP and Palmolive degreaser detergent, then power washed it. Now that I am reading through the instructions included in the kit, it says, “DO NOT use detergent with a degreaser”. What should I do?

      Pressure wash again all wood extremely well with water. Repeat again and then let dry fully.

    I have a gallon of the gloss paint left over and only the railings to paint, so I was going to save the 1/4 kit I didn't need for future touch ups. How different will the gloss paint look compared to the Deck Revive? If it will look too glossy, is there a sealer you would recommend to tone down the shine?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Gulf Synthetics · 08/12/2020
      It will be very shiny and no it is not possible to tone down the shine not can you ever seal over a paint or stain.

    Hello, I live in Colorado and this time of year we often have rain in the afternoons and it is difficult to predict when we will have a stretch of dry days. If I apply bond and fill early in the AM so there's hours of dry time, will an afternoon rain cause problems for application of revive the next day? And similarly, if I apply revive early AM and get both coats on, will an afternoon rain cause problems?

    Thank you!

    How long DeckRevive last *unmixed*? Also, what is the shelf life of PemaBond?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Gulf Synthetics · 08/03/2020
      Un mixed and unopened they should both last 2-3 years as long as they are stored in a room that is temperature-controlled.

      No need to add paint to the Permabond. Just use on its won and then two coats of the Deck Revive.

    I have an 800 square foot deck. How much of the product will I need? Is it 4 full kits or can I buy some permabond separate?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Gulf Synthetics · 07/26/2020
      Permabond is separate and must be used first. You would need about 4 Full Deck revive kits and 2-3 Permabonds.

    Does Deck Revive HAVE to be combined with a latex paint or can be applied without the paint addition ?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly

      Yes, you must add the gloss acrylic latex paint to the kits. It will not work without it.
