Consumers who purchased Behr DeckOver may be able to benefit from a class action settlement over allegations that the product deteriorates faster than advertised.
Under the terms of the Behr DeckOver Resurfacer class action settlement, consumers who bought/used the product between Sept. 1, 2012, and June 27, 2018, may be able to file a claim for a refund and for reimbursement for removal and/or repair of their deck. The product was exclusively sold at Home Depot for approximately $35 a gallon.
The Behr DeckOver Resurfacer class action settlement puts to rest allegations that the product, marketed at a premium to comparable stains, deteriorated on consumers within months of application.
The class action lawsuit claimed that consumers paid more for Behr DeckOver stain based on advertising that its thicker coating would last longer and require less upkeep than other deck staining products.
Although Behr admits no wrongdoing under the terms of the Behr DeckOver Resurfacer class action settlement, it has agreed to pay Class Members who can provide supporting documentation both a refund for the gallons of the DeckOver product used and for any repairs necessary.
The deadline to submit a claim for a refund and/or reimbursement for repairs is Feb. 27, 2019.
Class Members who wish to object to or exclude themselves from the Behr DeckOver Resurfacer class action settlement have until Oct. 15, 2018.
Class Members include individuals nationwide who purchased DeckOver between Sept. 1, 2012, and June 27, 2018.
Varies depending on the amount of Behr DeckOver product purchased during the class period and cost of any repairs.
