Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by youBETCHA garbage product. buying this will cost you 3 times as much in a year or two just to get it off
I listened to the sales rep, then followed all of the instructions and had my deck completely prepped and ready to coat with what i thought was a premium product. What a waste of money and time. It is supposed to have a six year guarantee, it didn't even last a year before it started peeling. It seriously peels like 30 year old paint. Now i have to spend more money and time just to get it off. And the guarantee is worthless without original receipt. Who keeps a receipt for 2 years for a $40 can of deck stain? Either stand behind your product or don't.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Leslie1 HATE IT!
I hate this product!- Let me start off by saying this is not the first time I have stained my deck ( see picture) I prepped my deck with the Behr cleaner, and used a power washer, even though my pressure treated wood is only 3 years old. I used the semi transparent cedar tone- goes on red! I hate the color red!! Also, went on very streaky, my deck looks horrible!! I listened to the Behr sales rep in the store, what a mistake to take his recommendation!! Now after reading all of the reviews, Im worried about it peeling off like paint !! Do your self a huge favor, and stay away! Im seriously thinking about hiring a professional to strip and restain!! What a waste of money and time (5 hours powerwashing, and 7 hours staining)

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by regretfulDIYer deteriorating in less than 1 month
the product looks good and is easy to work with. it advertises that it lasts 4 or 6 years or something. maybe in a spot that is never touched. this is supposed to be deck stain and i put it on less than a month ago and there are already spots under the table and chairs where it is peeling up and chipping away. you can tell it didn't actually stain the wood, its just a very thin coating. it may last on the railing where it is barely ever touched but i am going to have to redo the floor of the deck every year. if i knew that i would have invested in a better product. note also consumer reports test stains by setting them in the sun, but no touching. so unless you want to just look at your deck and never walk on it or use it at all, i would have to recommend using something else.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brainz913 2 Years Later - with pictures
Let me describe the picture first - in the back/top of the picture you can see my neighbors house. Both fences were built 15 years ago and you can see where my neighbors fence is gray. Mine is the more attractive fence. I did the stain work 2 years ago, but took this picture just last week (still looks great). I think the pictures says all that needs to be said.
Process - I power washed the fence first bringing back the natural, yellow pine color. This step made the fence look new again, but I knew within a year it would gray again so I researched stains and chose this product. If you notice I give only 4 bars on value as this product does not get the coverage advertised. The manufacture might blame the age of my wood and state how dry (thirsty) it was and how is absorbed too much stain.
I went to a competitors hardware store and bought a power sprayer for $25 that I intended on throwing away because it is cheap and never cleans up well. So I sprayed in on thick and had a teenage son follow behind with a 4" brush, sloshing the stain into every crack. I used 7 gallons on 350 linear feet of fence. It took about 4 hours (we were sloppy). You won't be disappointed with this product.

Last year it started to go down with another color result. This year it did the same thing. I got a mess left behind trying to get my color desired on my deck. For years I would put down the Behr cedar color that on my old redwood deck would turn out looking like a beautiful brandy looking color but then it started going down and staying a cedar color. Now you might say that is what it is suppose to do but making the change over leaves my deck looking terrible. Oh, at 7,600 ft elevation south facing the Behr and all the other deck stains last 1-2 years and not the 6-8 years stated on the can. That is ok and just part of living in high clear air facing the south.
