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 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?

      Yes, you can do that. The new wood needs to weather for 3 months.

    Is it going to be an issue if I do Permabond/PermaCaulk in the evening and the two coats of Deck Revive the following morning? Trying to get it all done before it heats up later in the day.

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

    Is it acceptable to apply the second coat of Deck Revive 24 hours after the first coat? I have a big deck and I’m not sure I can get the Permabond and 2 coats of the Deck Revive in one day.
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Gulf Synthetics · 06/24/2019
      No, has to be done the same day. Might want to break it up into sections or possibly have some help applying.

    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.
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Gulf Synthetics · 06/23/2019
      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?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Gulf Synthetics · 06/20/2019
      The Behr should be removed as much as possible so that does not "fail" under the Deck Revive.

      No need to remove. Pressure wash for prep, apply Permabond, then Deck Revive. Same steps.

    Ok, I used a Revive kit BUT at the end of the day and trying my best - I don't like the color......the Tan color ended up looking more orange when applied. <br>Since I have to apply revive to a lot more decking that will require at least 3 revive kits so it's decision time . <br>To change the color of my initial application are there any short cuts or is it the same process ? Perma bond and then revive ? will the coating be too thick if I have to apply 2 coats again ?<br>Is it better to go from light to darker color or dark to lighter color ?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Gulf Synthetics · 06/02/2019
      Sorry, no short cuts. Permabond must go on first. It will not be too thick. Doesn't matter with the color being lighter or darker.

    I’m just over the 400 sf limit for the permabond. can I thin it out to pick up 50ish more sf in stead of buying and wasting another container of permabond..
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Gulf Synthetics · 05/29/2019
      No, you cannot thin it or stretch it too thin. Coverage will vary as well based on the porosity of the wood.

    Hi. I know the DeckRevive needs to be applied at 85 degrees F or below for optimal setting. Can the temperature be above that after it's been applied? Secondly, I got a gallon of interior/exterior high gloss acrylic latex paint that came with a primer in it from Lowe's. This is the closest to what the directions say is needed to mix with kit. Will this work when adding to the kit? Thanks

    I've prepped the deck, and yesterday used Perma Fill to in the larger cracks, after applying Perma Bond first inside those cracks. Today I was going to apply Perma Bond and two coats of Deck Revive all over the deck, which would have taken most of the day, but the weather forecast has changed and now it's supposed to rain tonight. However, there's a good weather window in a few days. I've already opened the Perma Bond so I could use the Perma Fill yesterday. Obviously the Perma Bond is covered back up. Can the Perma Bond be used up to five or six days after first opened, or does it have a short usable life like the Deck Revive once it's mixed?

    Hi - We love this product! My husband and I redid our back porch with deck revive to great success. My parents would like to use the product as well, but their situation is different. <br><br>Question - Can deck revive be put over acrylic paint (their deck was foolishly painted with regular paint many years ago)? Would sanding it off first work? <br><br>Don't want to spend the significant amount of money if it will peel off in a couple of years. <br><br>Thanks for your help!<br>Katie

      You can cover the paint that is not peeling. Pressure wash first to remove any loose paint.

      New wood will need to season for 3 months. Pressure wash after for prep.

    I'm in Southwest Virginia. Deck (pressure treated pine) stained with oil based Cabot stain 12+years ago and re-stained 6+years ago. Just pressure washed and removed most, not all of the old stain and mildew. Is Deck Revive/ Perma Bond right for this application? Thanks

    I called the El Reno OK office yesterday to ask a few questions about using the product &amp; since the El Reno office is so close to me here in OK, I was hoping to be able to go pick up the product. I asked about using semi-gloss paint since I could not find 5 gallons buckets of gloss paint available in hopes of avoiding having to mix sgl gallons together since we have 1600 sf of deck . The guy said I could use semi-gloss paint instead of gloss. I bought the first 5 gallons of paint last night, I will be doing it in sections since I cannot afford the time/money to do it all in one shot. Now I am reading the Q&amp;A responses saying not to use semi-gloss paint. Is the product going to fail if I use semi-gloss paint? A lot of time/money will be tied up in the deck restoration &amp; can't afford for it to fail. I have spent $275 on paint 5 gallons. I need to know if I should not use the semi-gloss paint at all?

    I've been preparing my deck to apply the Perma Bond and Deck Revive. My deck was previously finished with Cabot Solid Acrylic Deck Stain. Do I need to remove all of the prior finish before I apply the Perma Bond? Or will I be OK only removing the peeling sections? Thanks.

      No need to remove all. Just pressure wash off the dirt and any loose stain. Leaving on the intact stain is okay.

      No, it best to apply the same day a the Deck Revive. Permabond is very easy to apply and dries quickly as well.
