BEHR Premium Textured DECKOVER

The Groundbreaking Solid Colour Coating to Resurface and Revitalize Weathered Wood, Concrete, and Composites
(June 12, 2014 – Calgary, Alberta) – Just in time for summer outdoor renovations, Behr Paints has introduced new BEHR Premium Textured DECKOVER Coating, an innovative solid colour coating that can give your old, weathered wood or concrete new life.  The advanced 100% acrylic formula creates a durable coating to help revitalize and resurface your outdoor space for a whole new look. This product can even revive tired, previously stained pool decks, patios and porches, giving your surfaces a superior quality textured finish.
BEHR Premium Textured DECKOVER Coating covers splinters and fills cracks up to 6 mm (¼”) and offers an easy, spatter resistant application.  The result for sound wood and concrete surfaces is a rejuvenated appearance that resists cracking and peeling and creates a textured, slip-resistant finish that is dry to the touch in just four hours.  In addition, you can customize your space and add a splash of colour by choosing from the 54 available colours from traditional Redwood to Pewter or Colony Blue.   
“We developed BEHR Premium Textured DECKOVER due to the immense success of its predecessor, BEHR DECKOVER Solid Colour Coating,” said Scott Richards, General Manager, Behr Process Corporation.  “This incredible product goes above and beyond standard deck coatings as it offers a substantial layer that dries four times thicker than conventional stains.  Now consumers have a choice between a smooth or textured finish.”
Behr also just released BEHR Premium DECKOVER™ Cleaner, specifically developed as a cleaner for wood and concrete surfaces that have been coated with DECKOVER.  The new product readily removes dirt, grease, mildew and household stains from DECKOVER coated surfaces and is easy to use with no mixing required.  Now there’s no worry about your kid’s dirty shoes or your dog’s muddy paws – the new cleaner will refresh and brighten your deck or porch for any occasion.
BEHR Premium Textured DECKOVER Coating and BEHR Premium DECKOVER Cleaner are currently available in all The Home Depot stores across Canada.  The suggested retail price of BEHR Premium Textured DECKOVER Coating is $44.97 per 3.4 litres and for BEHR Premium DECKOVER Cleaner it is $17.97 per 3.7 litres.
