In April 2015, a class-action lawsuit
was filed against Rust-Oleum for allegedly deceptively marketing “Restore” products for wooden decks, including Deck & Concrete Restore and Deck & Concrete Restore 10x. According to the plaintiffs, the company deceptively represents that the “Restore” products are an alternative to regularly repainting and replacing decks when, in reality, the products chip, peel, and leave decks unprotected months after being applied to them.

, Case No. 15-cv-02892, N. D. IL.).
