Welcome, my name is Rick and I will do my best to help you with your issue

Rick :

As long as the deck is properly prepped this product is a good option for older decks. It's the same product as Rustoleum's Restore.

JACUSTOMER-6s1yefct- :

I need a bit more information. What exact prepping is required?

Rick :

The surface must be clean (no dirt, oil, grease) any peeling finishes must be removed. Here is a video that gives you a product and application overview.

As with any paint finish the prep is key to a satisfactory outcome. Any bad feedback you hear is usually a case of poor prep.
