Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Andre This 10 year paint lasts 1 year maybe 2 before it needs to be redone on deck floor.
This 10 year paint lasts 1 year maybe 2 before it needs to be redone on deck floor. I had this paint professionally applied on a deck that gets average use in the summertime. 4 parties a year.. Memorial day, Labor day and 2 or so cocktail parties a summer. The deck looked good the first year summer (the paint was applied that spring). Over that winter the deck floor paint started chipping and pealing.
By the time the second summer started the deck needed to be redone. However I put off redoing the deck that year. Now its the spring of 3rd year and the deck is missing at lease 20% of the over 625sq feet of floor and horizontal railing coverage due to chipping and pealing. Just know if you use this paint you will have to redo your deck every other year. If you want the deck to look good every year you will have to redo the deck every year.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Nelson bad product, lasted at most 2 years Stop buying it
Home Depot is doing us DIYers a disservice by selling us this product. They say that they are working with the manufacturer on trying to fix these issues while continuing to sell the product. I used this product on a unstained deck 10 months after installing it. the product began peeling/wearing off by year one, by year two it needs to be redone. It was cleaned and prepared before using this product but this did not make a difference. I will admit it seems to do well on vertical surfaces, but on Horizontal surfaces it does not last. Read the other reviews, i am not the only one with an issue. I spoke with a Behr rep which asked me every thing but the moon phase to get me to beleive that i had messed it up some how. At least relabel the product to indicate it only lasts 2 years on decks.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Longest lasting stain available.
We use about 100 gallons of this per month and have found it is the longest lasting, most hail-resistent, waterproof stain available, tho it should retail for at least 10%-15% less when bought in 5-gallon buckets!
I question whether it will really last 25 years on a fence, but if it only lasts 20 I will be satisfied for spending the extra money. The labor is the same no matter what stain you use so why do the job 4x over 20 years?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ScottE Really adheres to the wood!
I love this stain. It goes on somewhat thick to give great protection, and I can almost feel it seeping into my old wood. I did the balusters a couple of years ago, and they still look freshly painted. This year I did the floor, and given the age of the wood, it really made such a huge difference.

If you follow the directions on the can you will be impressed. Excellent coverage very forgiving not watery like regular stains this acts more like paint than stain

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rpredoli Great for cedar fences!
We chose the terra cotta color for this paint and I used an airless paint sprayer to do my entire backyard wood fence. One coat coverage and the look is fantastic! Just like I have a new fence. The paint penetrated the wood quickly, dried quickly, and still let the wood grain come through.

Worked hard cleaning and prepping our deck last year and wanted a good stain for it to keep it in good condition. Used this stain and in less than a year it started peeling up. WASTED money and time.

I used this product on old posts of our deck to match the semi-transparent stain on our newly refinished portion. Easy application and the color was very uniform after the second coat (even on varied quality of previous color underneath). I'm hopefully it will last the advertised 10 years.
