Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by VermontDIYer Stain to feel good about
After pressure washing the exterior walls and allowing to dry, went about applying stain to 2 sides of the house by brush. Application was relatively easy, although some of the cedar clapboard siding had deteriorated significantly due to lack of maintenance. These areas required some extra brushing in order to achieve coverage. Drying time was fairly fast, enough so that when some rain came about 4 hours after finishing, the stain did not wash off or leak and went on to dry thoroughly. Had done the other 2 sides of the house 6 months ago. Whole house looks great, although the intention is to apply a second coat next year. Quality is supposed to be very good, but time will tell. Very pleased with price/quality (if holds up) based on Consumer Reports ratings. Really good deal when purchased during Home Depot paint rebate sale times.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mark Great product, great price!
I was already planning to purchase Behr stain for my house due to the great review by Consumer Reports when the Labor Day Sale came up! I was very pleased with color and how well it went on the Cedar siding. Highly recommended!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bosephus Looks good after 10 years, but faded
We decided to stain the whole house after redoing an addition. The old can of Behr stain left over from the previous staining was dated 2006. Other then some fading, the house still looks great - no cracks, chips, or peeling. A similar product at Lowe's was the exact same price - but the can contained several ounces less product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Brandysmom Exact color I was looking for
Color was beautiful, good coverage, long drying time. Requires 2 coats. Absolutely no gloss to the finish, so dust and dirt settle and stay. It would be perfect if it set to a harder finish. Doesn't wear well on stair edges, or anything that takes abuse of any kind. Perfect for upright material that doesn't take abuse of any type.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ally Great product!!!
This wood stain product is excellent. I have a summer cabin that has redwood siding that is over 40 years old. Because this cabin is at 7500 feet and cannot be acessed for about 6 months of winter, normal deck/wood stain needs to be redone every year and the stain doesn't look very good either. This Behr product makes the cabin siding look new and it still looks as if it was just put on 8 months later after going through a heavy winter.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Civilitas Excellent coverage, spreadability, color
I have used this previously (Weatherproofing Stain - acrylic base 5013) with great results. Recently I used it on previously oil-finished deck uprights that had faded away after 7 years. I pressure washed and let it dry a lengthy period, then wiped down before application. The product spread very easily, adhered quickly and well. We are in the PNW and the UV is only harsh a few months a year, but the water is incessant all other times, and mildew is always a problem. This works great in that challenging environment.
This is cheaper in the long run than lower priced options. Win-win. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MicheleB Sadly Disappointed
We have always had great success with other Behr products and viewing all the reviews of this product, we expected the same great quality. We were disappointed. We prepped the deck as recommended with Behr All in One Wood Cleaner abd a power washer. Once dry after a few days of hot sun, we did the first coat. It looked great. Did a second coat on the deck boards two days later and reveled in how good it looked. Well, a few days after it was chipping and staining. How sad and how expensive! We bought four gallons and used three and will have to purchase some other product to fix this mess.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ghia Great looking finish so far!
Over time, we have built more deck than we need, but love it. Finish had gone downhill but we usually only use Behr products so we started looking. Settled on this in Padre Brown. Few photos show part of what we used 22 gallons on! Sure hope it lasts, because I don't want to paint all this again!!!! So far, it looks brand new. Age ranges from 18 to 10 years, but looks uniform now.
