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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by zman Best i have ever used
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

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.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by CitKat NOT EVEN CLOSE TO CEDAR - BRIGHT ORANGE, VERY VERY DISAPPOINTED
Worst color ever, turned out bright pumpkin orange. We just built a brand new deck with a roof. My husband wanted to stain the plywood and roof joist before installing. I was not around and had told him I wanted the cedarwood transparent stain for the deck that we used prior and had a nice natural wood tone.. Well since it was plywood he decided to do a solid stain and install it to surprise me.. Well Cedarwood solid turned out to be bright pumpkin orange. It is the ugliest thing in the world. Now my camper deck roof sticks out like a sore thumb. A big Bright Orange roof. I don't know how in the world to fix this. I saw the color sample in the store and it looked much more muted and a lot less orange and more tan in it.. This I am sure now was due to the lighting and the fact it was next to the solid chocolate stain. Beware of solid stain in Cedarwood tones. You might just end up with a big orange mess.

It looks good and goes on well, but I can't seem to get more than 2 years on the deck boards. We're a 2-adult family and aren't on it all that much, but it starts flaking after just 2 years. This seems to be the average length of any others I've tried as well but most of them are less expensive.

Overall it was fine. It definitely needs 2 coats to cover. Be prepared to buy more stain.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Dissatisfied Uggggly!!!!! Color is a bright ORANGE!
I used this on my approximately 1000 square foot deck that surrounds my pool. Deck is treated deck lumber and about 10 years old and was weathered. Used the recommended cleaner to clean and scrub the deck per manufacturer's directions and replaced/repaired damaged wood. A 5 gallon bucket lasted me approximately 850 square feet for ONE coat (the sales person at Home Depot assured me I had plenty to cover my deck with two coats) and the stain is a grotesque ORANGE!! I took off work for a week to do this deck and it looks WORSE than it did before I stained it. I want to cover this ugly stain with another color but now I do not trust what color I am truly purchasing. I would give it a ZERO rating for value if I had that choice since now I have to buy more stain to cover this ugly color $166 plus tax for 5 gallons, three paint brushes $9.99, and three deck pads $19.00, deck pad holder and pole $19.00, three gallons of deck cleaner $30.00, one gallon deck stain remover $10.00 (had a few spots with old stain) for a total $270.00 wasted.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by isonespal Pleased with the look and finish of Behr solid color stain
I have a new (one year old) Poplar sided barn. I let the siding dry for a year and then wanted to protect the wood with something more than a transparent stain. The Behr solid color weatherproofing stain has done a beautiful job, and very closely matches the color of our poplar sided house. I will use this solid color stain on my house in the near future.
