Looking to refinish my house deck. It has exterior latex on it now. I will be power washing that off and painting over it. Looking for a recommendation for paint that wears well in all climates and some traffic. I thought about the deck over products but the reviews are horrible

is it wood? why not just stain it so you can see the wood?

i would also take some pictures of the deck and bring them to the paint store. 80% is the prep work , which is why a lot of those deck textures probably get bad reviews, people think they can just pour it over flaking paint and rotting wood etc. a paint store can recommend prep and primers/bonding coats etc as needed.

Have your say...
