In October 2019, a class-action lawsuit
was filed against Rust-Oleum Corp. for allegedly misleadingly advertising Restore products for wood surfaces, including Restore Deck Start Wood Primer, Restore 2X, and Restore 4X. Among other things, plaintiffs claim that the marketing represents that the products are superior and provide thicker coverage than ordinary paints and stains when, according to the complaint, the products crack, peel, bubble, and chip shortly after being applied to wood surfaces.
