Has anyone in the upper Midwest (Detroit Michigan area) used any of these products? I have been reading and seems like they peel off?

I have read about the rustoleum brand of this type of paint for the deck. From what I have read the deck has to be properly prepared. The paint goes on pretty thick and doesn't go as far as you think. It appears to extend the life of deck boards that have some damage. Personally I would not use it on a good deck that could just be cleaned and stained.

Like all paint it may peel after while. Every thing you put on the deck will do that except transparent stain.

We only painted a small area with deck over and hated it. It goes on thick and has a texture to it. Took forever to dry then it rained on it and just washed off. Shame we can't return the 2 cans we bought. Will have to buy something else. Don't waste your Money.

Where did you buy it that you can't return it?
I would certainly be making a fuss if the store wouldn't return a defective product.
Don't give up, follow it up the corporate ladder.

Home Depot. They tell you when they custom mix it for you, no returns accepted.
