This product did not stick, but rather, it had the consistency and weight of a can of water. I lost 3 hours to sanding and power washing this product off of my fence to once again prepare the surface for new paint. I had to visit Sherwin Williams for their version of this item, which worked fantastically well under identical conditions, although their product is normally way more expensive.
Note that 10+ years ago, this fence was painted with Home Depot's previous version of the Behr fence stain, which is now discontinued. For this project, I also added & painted New pickets, which took the stain, but did not look anywhere near the intended color. Note that Home Depot associates were fantastically helpful & supportive, per usual, but they did not have a better product to sell me.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mag1979 Good Product for Price
Product goes on well with brush, roller, or sprayer. Provides good coverage. Just finished applying medium thickness, single coat, to 400 ft of fence. Used same product 11 years ago, after letting wood cure for one year after installation. Notice I said 11 years ago, not 15 years. Product does not peel much. It just wears away over time. Beware of tinting. One of 15 cans did not match. Since product dries so much darker, it was not noticeable during application. Next time plan on spending the extra 50% to try the 25 year product.

With an 8 foot back fence and a 4 foot front fence - Behr has with stood the test of time for over 25 years. The fence itself still looks amazing it is just the interior boards that are attached to the fence that begins to show the wear. My experience the Behr has lasted about 13 years and then it is time to do it again, but it is easy to apply with a roller and looks beautiful when finished. I just started painting the front fence and all my neighbors love the color and how it looks. I will never use any other for outside or inside. Behr is for me.

I have been staining our cedar sided house with this Behr product and I could not be happier with the results! Excellent one coat coverage and our house looks 20 years newer!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by HomeObsessed looks great for a VERY short while
We sanded AND cleaned the deck thoroughly (as per Behr instructions), and were very careful to follow all their tips in applying the stain as well. It looked great at first-- several friends asked if we had built a new deck. HOWEVER, the first time someone walked on it with muddy shoes, there were permanent stains (long after we washed and scrubbed the spots). Bird droppings, leaves, and mud permanently stain the surface. A year later, we're seeing peeling, and talking about (but dreading) refinishing again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Gacustomer Be careful with this product
I stained my deck and after two weeks it is still sticky. I also have patches of oil pooling in spots and the stain hasn't dried. I scrubbed the entire deck with soapy water and it helped a little but not much. I went to the store and they were nice about it but Behr was not helpful and blamed me for staining it wrong. I've been painting for 20 years and what I did is correct. Long story short Behr will pay for stripper and new stain but not pay my cost to redo the deck. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PRODUCT!!!!!! Read reviews other than Consumer Reports.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 4horses Peeling after 6 months
I followed all the rules. I pressure washed deck last year during a very hot August and let it dry 3 days in 90+ temperatures. I used the solid stain and back brushed just like it said to do. It's peeling in very low traffic areas as well as high. I don't want to do it again and besides it's raining every other day this August in Georgia. There is no way I would have the window of opportunity to get it dry. Don't waste your money or your back breaking time on this stuff.
