Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Myself Doesn't hold up... see pics
Applied this to three small decks in 2012... two were contractor grade whitewood that had been stained over 5 years previously, one was a new PT deck I built 4 months prior. All were pressure washed, scrubbed, and pressure washed again. Two coats of Behr waterproofing stain on all surfaces.
Pros: color is accurate, easy to apply and cleanup, coverage as expected (for ONE coat), looks great when finished.
Cons: significant fading and moderate peeling at two years. Less fading on protected/shaded areas, but even covered, nontraffic, and vertical surfaces were peeling. At year three, I am forced to restain... everything has faded to a pale, dusty color, and bare wood is exposed in several places. At $30/gallon and two coats, I would have expected it to be far more durable.
Refer to unretouched photo with this review... fresh stain vs 3yo stain.

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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by notapainter Good for staining an outbuilding
The Behr solid color waterproofing wood stain we used on our wooden storage building looks good. The stain seemed a little thin as we applied it, and it took two (or sometimes three) coats to cover the previous finish. Time will tell if it holds up for five or more years...

This is the second time staining my house with this stain. The first time was 15 years ago and it held up great. This time, I am switching colors and the coverage is great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SCBURR Made my old shed look new
My Shed hadn't been stained in years. yup, I've been lazy. Finally got tired of looking at it. Used Behr Solid Weatherproofing stain in Barn Red. It looks amazing. One coat coverage and was easy to use with both roller and brush
