Why Encore is the Best Wood & Concrete Resurfacer.
Here’s what you get with Encore that other coatings don’t offer:
1. Exclusive Self-Repairing Technology.
For the first time ever, intelligent self-healing technology is incorporated into a deck coating. Deck coatings are compromised when water migrates through open cracks in the coating and gets between the coating and the wood substrate. But that’s not the case with Encore’s new formula. Upon the first presence of moisture, nano-chemistries within Encore activate and crosslinks to heal itself. Total self-healing takes place within 12-14 days of the first presence of moisture. This self-healing feature prevents the water migration that would otherwise compromise the coating. So when other coatings are compromised, Encore’s exclusive technology gets to work, protecting your wood deck for life. (Be sure to watch the video on the sidebar of this page.)
2. A more refined appearance.
Encore dries to a form a skid-resistant, yet elegant finish. Your wood deck will look great and provide a new level of safety for your family by locking down splinters and creating a skid-resistance walking surface. Encore’s new texture complies with ADA standards for skid-resistance while balancing the need for easy cleaning and durability.
3. New Thermal-Smart™ technology.
Other products use sand to create texture in their coating. Sand gets very hot on summer days. A synthetic aggregate and other ingredients are incorporated into Encore’s new formulation so it’s cooler on bare feet in hot weather.
Infinicolor™ allows you to choose any color under the Sun by simply adding a gallon of acrylic latex paint* to the Encore 5-gallon pail. Infinicolor-technology guarantees a perfect color match.
Elastix™ is a robust new resin package that increases Encore’s ability to withstand changing weather conditions. Expansion & contraction is the single biggest challenge for deck coatings and Encore has mastered the challenge with Elastix. Year after year, Encore will provide the level of protection that you expect from a market leader.
6. A Lifetime Warranty!
Encore is guaranteed for as long as you own your home. Commercial projects come with a 10-year warranty. What other deck product protects your investment like Encore? Be sure to compare! New Brochure – Download.

Quick How-To: Properly clean and prep your deck (see FAQs for prep instructions). Using a common paint roller, apply two coats of Encore and allow to dry. (Note: For the ultimate level of long-term performance, we highly recommend the use of Pretreat, a penetrating sealer and bonding agent specifically designed for Encore.) Depending on the condition of the wood and the application technique, the Encore kit will complete (2 coats) between 140 and 200 square feet of deck surface. Add one gallon of semi-gloss exterior acrylic paint* of your color choice to this kit to achieve the perfect color.
