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!

Can this be used over a Dexter surface?

This product actually works!

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!

    If I have to replace a few boards that have bowed on the ends, will the DeckRevive adhere to the new boards (using Permabond first)?

      Yes but pressure wash them first and let dry before applying.

    I have a small deck, 80 sq ft, with 8 steps. Would two 1/4 kits cover this? If so, can I buy a lesser quantity of the Permabond also ?

    My deck is 575 sq ft. and am wondering how many deck revive kits I would need to cover it. Also planned to use Perma fill and wanted to know how long I needed to wait before applying Perma Bond and Revive kit after application. Thanks.

    Can the exterior gloss acrylic latex paint be of the kind that is a paint and primer in one? Does the 'primer part' introduce any bad elements? Thanks.
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Gulf Synthetics · 05/02/2017
      Not a primer and paint. Just a gloss acrylic paint to be sure it works correctly.

    How do I know if I need to use the Perma-Fill product or not? If I use Perma-fill, is it in addition to the Perma-Bond and then Deck-Revive?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Gulf Synthetics · 05/02/2017
      Use if you need to fill any large holes. It is in addition,&nbsp;but not always needed.

    What is the difference between acrylic latex and just acrylic exterior paint? Can I use acrylic paint? Is gloss unique to this type of paint or should I be selecting semi-gloss or high-gloss? My local hardware store carries Sherwin Williams (colors match my home) but only in acrylic (no latex) and in either semi or high gloss. Thanks in advance for your help.

      <p>All water based acrylic paints will fall under the latex umbrella. For example, the SW Acrylic High Gloss would be good since it is a gloss and an acrylic water based paint.</p><p><br></p>

    I have a deck which is composed of some kind of composite material. I have had continuing problems with the deck over the past 10 years. The material continues to deteriorate. This has occurred at the edge of the material. The builder admitted that the material was faulty from the beginning and found out that if the material was not removed and replaced you would have to scrape away the deteriorated areas, seal it and paint it. This has been done 4 times. What I want to know is can I cover the painted deck with your Perma Bond and then cover that surface with Deck Revive? Your product sounds absolutely wonderful, however I wonder if it will work for me in the above described instance. Would appreciate your response. Thank you.

      Unfortunately,&nbsp;it is not designed for composites but wood. It is possible that it may work just fine, but we do not have the history to say yes and therefore cannot guarantee it.

    The only exterior gloss sheen acrylic paint I can find in local hardware stores is called "direct to metal". Can I use semi-gloss, or will the "direct to metal" paint work? If direct to metal will not work and semi-gloss will not work, is there a recommended brand of paint that comes in gloss acrylic exterior.
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Gulf Synthetics · 03/26/2017
      It needs to be a gloss exterior acrylic latex paint. They have this at Home Depot, Menards or Lowes. Does not matter on the brand. The semi-gloss will not work, not the direct to metal.

    I used the permabond and mixed the deck revive. Unfortunately, the texture was more than I wanted. Can I apply a standard porch latex enamel over the permabond or do I need to sand the entire porch and start over?

    How long after pressure washing the surface can you start the process (i.e., apply the Perma Bond).

    When the kit is purchased for $240 does that include the Perma Fill , Perma Bond and Deck Revive or is it for Deck Revive only. I only need 65 sq ft of bench around the perimeter of my deck to be painted?

    I see you use a 3/4" nap. How is the texture on the deck. That is, can you walk barefooted on the deck or will there be sharp points from using that nap size.

    Applied the Deck Revive, and now its looking like we might get unexpected rain. It will have dried 12-18 hrs after 2nd coat applied. Is there going to be an issue? Do I need to tarp the deck?<br>

    Ken · 09/06/2016
    I see where you would not have to add the dry chemical if you do not want a textured look. If you do use it, what kind of texture will it have. That is, I assume minor or else you could not walk barefooted on it. Is that correct

    As a retired scientist familiar with materials evaluation, I was IMPRESSED with the combination/repetition of the three-coat comparison test. However, I was disappointed that the only TEST was the subjective (and subject to bias) use of a thumbnail. In professional laboratories I have observed many types of standardized, machine-based methods for measurement of materials durability. You could do yourself a favor by performing and reporting/demonstrating the results of more standardized, reproducible tests -- such as those used in the "tribological" sciences (studies of friction &amp; wear). It was impossible to discern whether the coatings were applied to heavily weathered (pressure-treated) wood, and whether the coating was applied to only ONE side as is typical for consumer use. The freeze thaw test is valid ONLY if water can freely enter the uncoated bottom of the plank. Seems to be a v. good product, but the advertising could be more convincing<br>

    Paint density/tone after dilution in kit.<br>How does a user "preview" the final color after the gloss exterior latex acrylic paint is diluted by the white liquid and the white powder in the kit. What ratio of a user's excess generic "white paint" (or "base" for tinting) and colored paint would approximately simulate the dilution that occurs when combining the components of the kit. HOWEVER, an answer to a question is "The color is not diluted when mixed." How can that be true?

      You can do all the wood with Deck Revive or just the Horizontals. The rest you would match with a solid color deck stain of the same color.

      The second coat should go on within hours of the first coat, not days. Best to apply both on a day where there is no rain.

    I have applied Behr Deckover to my deck, and it is peeling and is cracked in multiple spots. Can I apply this product over it?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Gulf Synthetics · 07/10/2016
      Sorry but you cannot fix the Behr Deck over but adding the Deck Revive on top. It will adhere to the Behr when using the Permabond, but if the Deckover continues to peel, it will be the Behr Deckover that is failing underneath, not the Deck Revive on top. In other words, you have to remove the Behr deckover as there is no easy fix for their issues of product failure.

    Many of the high gloss exterior latex acrylic paints (Behr, for example) are called/labelled "enamal", even though they are 100% acrylic latex. I think this is generally to indicate the "hardness" of the finish. Can these acrylic latexes labeled as "enamal" be used with the DeckRevive and PermaBond products?

      Just pressure washing to remove dirt, any old stain that is loose/peeling, etc. Chemicals are not needed.
