Rustoleum Deck Renew

Anyone have any experience with this stuff?
Watched the Tutorial Video on their website...stuff looks good?
I don't plan on living in my house for more than 8 years...and it says it lasts 8-10 years (don't really buy that). But if I can refurbish my deck for a few years, it could be worth the prep work and get me by without having to replace the surface decking.
I think the biggest plus, I see is it covers splinters and fils cracks and gaps (my little guy has to wear shoes/sandals on my deck always otherwise it's a nightmare trying to pull them out of a 5 yr olds foot!!), plus it gives a textured non-skid type texture.
I have a buddy that stained his deck last year after careful prep and it's already peeling/chipping. I'm not going to go that route. And I don't have the cash to go with a composite replacement.

Yes, different colors. Comes with rollers, I think that give the texture.
Looks like you need caulking too.
All in all for 4 gallons it would be less than $100.
Lots of prep though.....fine by me. I will take my time with the prep.
Might give it a try if I can get some more opinions on it.

I never heard of that product before

You have to be careful of solid stain for decks, it will peel
I used semi-solid and it wears off no peeling because more penetration, also oil based not water based

solid stain with a chitload of portland cement thrown in.. basically.. if your old deck is toast.. and you wanna buy 4-5 more years out of it, instead of doing the replacement.. this is the way to go.

there are others.. Deck Re-new, Super Deck.. same kinda stuff... fills in all the rot and splits, and hardens up like concrete.
