Customer Questions & Answers

can you get this in different colors or have color added?

Asked by: Anonymous
There are many colors available and Home Depot stocks the Behr white base then mixes to whatever color you select using a precise color component measuring system. But be sure to look at the color over wood samples in the store before you purchase. The printed colors don't represent well and never select a color by looking at a computer monitor as the color changes with viewing angle.

Can this be used with air paint sprayer if thinned?

Follow-up to my other question.... Is it possible to use this product with an air sprayer if thinned first?
Asked by: Anonymous
Absolutely Ewen! Behr recommends thinning with water and using no more than one cup of water per gallon of stain. NOTE: Check the "Clean Up" line ... if it says "Clean up with water" then you only thin with water. This is true for almost all paint or stain products.

Can you apply this product over a painted area? I have a shed that is painted. Can I apply it over the existing paint?

Asked by: Anonymous
This is a water based coating. If your shed was previously coated with an oil based coating you could have bonding issues. I recommend sanding a small area and trying the coating over it first. I don't recommend simply coating over an old coating with no surface preparation.

Do I need to prime my deck before staining with this product?

Asked by: Anonymous
Hello Deck Noobie! Behr Solor Color Stain is self-priming. So you do not need to prime first.

1-gal. #SC-533 Cedar Naturaltone Solid Color Waterproofing Wood Stain is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 88.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Product I put this down on my deck last year summer and by the time the next summer rolled around we had peeling areas all over the deck. We prepped by power washing and sanding. We let the deck dry out for 5 days and then put the stain down. Looked great for the first part of the summer then when we went to use it the next summer it was in terrible condition. I would highly recommend using a different product. I would like a complete refund for the 4 gallons I purchased!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 out of 5 by from 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 4 out of 5 by from Good product (but) Purchased multi gal's to stain a replaced section of fence. Good product , needed 15 gal to do the fence the first time, liked it , so ordered again. I still believe that it's a good product with one problem when I reordered the two single gals. it was a different color. Same brand , same color, same level. Not even close! Purchased the 15 in the store and the 2 on line. Maybe that was the problem?? I would buy again, from one place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 out of 5 by from Behr deck stains have worked well for us and we love the color of California Rustic. Good coverage on stain. Only had to use 5 gallons to complete the job. It has held up well for us in the past.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.]
