One coat only,less is more. Wipe off excess.

It would probably only hold up in a perfect scenario, a very textured super absorbent deck one coat only. At best it will still only last for a while but maybe it won’t peel in that situation. Going over any previously stained deck with a solid latex topcoat is a recipe for disaster. I use Arborcoat all the time and it is a great product for vertical surfaces. I know of no other product that is solid latex that would hold up on a deck anyway so it’s not just a Benjamin Moore problem. Oil based only on decks but nothing will look great for very long anyway.

The treated lumber deck previously had an oil based stain which was sanded and washed. The Arborcoat was applied during the summer when the temp was about 75. By the following Spring the floor and top rail were peeling like crazy although upright surfaces are fine with no peeling.

I had the EXACT same thing happen. I can’t afford to fix it, either. I am involved in a class action law suite.

We used ARBORCOAT classic oil finish in the semi solid for a 22 X 10 cedar deck with PT 6×6’s and PT framing. In the summer of 2014. The deck had a couple years ageing on it and was kept pretty clean. The painter (Jake) is a pro and did excellent prep work. The finish came out wonderful and it weather the first year with no lifting or flaking anywhere. The only mark was where I scuffed it with a chair. I touched it up on a dry day and you cant even see it. It gets full sun, rain and snow from the south. I liked the product so when we moved in 2016 we bought 5 gallons to do our old deck on the new residence. Later we decided not to treat the old deck due to structural problems so we removed it and rebuilt with Azek. Now we have 5 new gallons of ARBORCOAT Semi Solid Classic Oil Finish in Kingsport Gray (HC-86) It is for sale on craigslist http://vermont.craigslist.org/for/5797838171.html

No failure of color or adhesion. (I did most of the painting myself.) The only redo was the exposed deck floor, on which today I am putting a final coat of BM Porch paint. Semi-solid held up surprisingly well on that floor, but given our ferocious winters of ’13 & ’14, the wear and tear on flooring (including by shovel,) is to be expected.

I have absolute confidence in BM and herald it to any who will listen. (I painted with Aura inside with equally satisfying results.)

My neighbor who paints houses for a living admired the transformation of mine so I recommended BM to him.

If Benjamin Moore were a real guy, I’d kiss him!

However I have a cedar deck which was stained with Arborcoat semi transparent deck stain. Horrible experience as the stain didn’t last for more than a year. Disappointed in the application but more so on the longevity. The stain does not penetrate the wood at all and sits on top like a cheap nail polish. I will definitely be looking for a mores unravel deck stain this year. Bye bye Arborcoat. Any suggestions out there for a really goo semi transparent deck stain???? Regina,SK
