Cordovan Brown tint, transparent stain. Easy to brush on, but very "watery" as it runs and drips very easily. After brushing to even out, it dried with a consistent color. Does not cover a great amount of fence, two gallons used on 40 linear feet x 6 foot high cedar fence and gate (both sides) ..

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ometto It wasn't a bear putting on this Behr product!
This Behr deck weatherproofing transparent wood finish went on easily. I used a paint pad for the top of the deck and a small brush to get in between the boards for a bit more protection. It was smooth, dried within a few hours, so that I was able to give it an additional coat the next day. It's supposed to last up to 4 years with a second coat on it. It looks great!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RenovatedHaven Cover Bare Wood With This Behr
Built a small deck for our back door with pressure treated pine. I let the wood dry out for a few months and then it was time to stain. After some research I decided on this product. I prepped the wood with Behr All in One Cleaner, power washed, and light sanding to knock down any splinters from power washing. Here are some pros and cons from my experience:
*Product works well - water beads up on surface
*Very please with the color
*Clean up was easy - water base
*Penetrates the wood
*Can be difficult to apply - I am very meticulous and want my finish to be completely uniform. This product behaves like a paint in that if you are not careful your brush strokes will show but it also behaves like a stain in that it will leave lap marks if you paint over an area that has already been painted.
Despite these drawbacks I was still able to get a finish that I am very pleased with. A couple of pointers:
*Do not skip the prep work - make sure the wood is ready for stain (read the instructions)
*Paint with the grain (this is not a wipe on wipe off stain-you paint it on and leave it) and complete your strokes.
*Keep a wet edge and complete one whole board at a time. If you apply product to only part of the piece and then come back to finish it there will be lap marks - the part you did previously will be darker.
*Do more than one coat (I did two with one gallon)

The rich red color looks so great on my fence with my holly trees in front of it with their bright green leaves.

I really love how this transparent finish allows you to see the original colors and variation in the wood. I did not want a solid deck stain and this worked great. Keeps the water off and has done a great job protecting our deck.

I pressure washed my new deck and rolled this weatherproofing on in about 3ft sections. I then used a 4 inch brush to make sure I got between the boards. I like the coverage and the color but can't see this lasting more than a couple years. I waited a week and applied a second coat. I'm sure this will be an every other year application. Label says it will last 4 years, there's no way I'd wait that long to reapply.
