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 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??

    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!

      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
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Gulf Synthetics · 05/05/2020
      Just pressure wash off the loose paint. You can cover the rest with the Deck Revive.

    I still have some resin from the revive kit left, no more powder. Questions: 1. does it need the added powder to work? I have powdered limestone I could use. And powered red (I assume iron) clay. If not, what kind of chemical compound do I need, assuming you don't sell the powder separately.
    2. Can I use the resin by itself? I have a railing made with rough locust and rhododendron I can coat with it.
    Thanks.

      1. Yes, it has to have the powder and you cannot add a different powder into it.
      2. The resins by itself is the primer. Not really a coating by itself.

    Scott · 05/04/2020
    I ordered the product and it is set to arrive tomorrow. In reviewing the type of roller needed, you mention both a 3/4 nap roller and a 3/8 nap roller. But it isn't clear if you are stating that I should use the 3/8 nap roller for the second coat. Is this what you are suggesting?

    Also, what roller should I use for the PermaBond and how long does it need to dry before applying the DeckRevive?

    How long does it take the PermaFill to dry (how long should I wait after application of PermaFill to then apply the PermaBond)?

    Do you recommend adding paint to PermaBond or is it ok to just add it to the DeckRevive?


    Thanks
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Gulf Synthetics · 05/04/2020
      Either nap is fine. It does not matter. Use the 3/8 for the Permabond. That dries in an hour or two. Same as the Permafill. No need to add paint to PermaBond.

        Thank you. Couple of additional questions. If my deck has an oil based stain, do I need to do anything special other than pressure washing it before applying everything?

        Keeping in mind that it has a stain and I intend to use a similar color paint, do I need to add a full gallon of paint to each mixture (I ordered to kits)? I realize that could be one of those dumb questions given that it likely completely covers the existing color. Does it need to be gloss or high gloss?
        • We will reply to your comment shortly
          Gulf Synthetics · 05/05/2020
          Just pressure wash for prep. Yes, you must a full gallon to each kit. It has to be gloss acrylic latex paint.

    Hello: I have an old (25+ years) partially covered wooden deck/porch. It's in Wisconsin right on Lake Michigan. The wood isn't in terrible shape, but the paint is peeling off like crazy. Before I apply the Deck Revive, can you tell me what steps I must take to clean the deck? I know I should wash or pressure wash. Should I also sand to ensure that all paint is removed before applying the Perma Bond? I don't own a pressure washer, but I'll check to see if I can rent one. Thank you! Susan
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Gulf Synthetics · 05/03/2020
      Pressure wash off first and then sand to remove all peeling stain. The Deck Revive and Permabond can go over the stain that is still fully attached to the wood after the prep.
      • We will reply to your comment shortly
        Susan · 05/03/2020
        OK. Except, it is paint, not stain. Must I still sand after washing?

        Also, what type of 3/4" roller should I use with the Deck Revive? And should the Permabond go on with a brush or a roller? Type?

        Thank you
        • We will reply to your comment shortly
          Gulf Synthetics · 05/03/2020
          Sand if needed to remove peeling stain. Any 3/4" roller will work. Permabond goes on with both.

    we have your system and are doing a bridge which goes over water, actually two walking bridges, one is 32 ft long and the other is 40 ft long, we are using regular 3/4 plywood with nice smooth finishes on both sides, can the product be used immediately and should we seal the edges of the boards with a primer sealer, not sure we can finish the boards before laying the surface down since we are working over water... the marine plywood was much costlier and we feel your product will help it last... how would you tackle the surface finish and how soon?

      The Permabond would work as the primer to seal the ends. You should be able to do the project now.

        So this new product can't be applied over the old Deck Restore finish. Could the deck boards be turned over putting the old Deck Restore finish on the underneath side while providing an unfinished surface for the new Deck Revive coating to be applied to. Or is it best to leave the deck boards alone and try to remove all of the old Deck Restore coating?

    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?

    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?

      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?),
    (
