Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rich Best for the money!
I bought the 6-8 year stain because it is the best, but I forgot that the three to five year stuff is just as good for fence staining. If you are staining a rustic fence you can use the 3 to 5 year stain and it will age gracefully! I know because I did just that in Colorado years ago. That 3-5 year stain looked good for about 6 or 7 years and when I stained my fence seven years later it still looked better than all my neighbors before I stained it. I stained it again because I was selling the house. So on rustic fences it lasts and lasts and lasts.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Amcmahon It's orange
From the name and the sample I assumed I would be painting my porch I shade of red But it went on Laurens it also took more than a week to completely dry in my porch felt tacky the whole time. I'm not in love with the color but am not displeased enough to restrain the porch. This product does not cover as well as it states. What should have taken less than 2 gallons required 4. It also did not go on evenly. Some portions of my deck are a different texture and color. It almost looks chalky in spots.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SaysMe Note: It's NOT "Redwood", it's ORANGE
I put one coat of this product on raw cedar wood lawn edging, and was horrified at the color. Although it is "semi-transparent", it completely covered the natural wood color in one coat. Since it is non-refundable, I am stuck with a gallon of high-quality, Orange weatherproofing stain.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lou It is bright!
So i just electric spray painted the fence with my $20 gun which worked fantastically! No clogging.. I did not prep any of the wood except high pressure water wash it as it was new. Well one month.. i was told to let it the new wood dry out first. This wood is the cheaper rough cut kind and not smooth so perhaps i get a different result then others in these reviews. It went on very well and no blotching.. I was surprised how bright and orange it was! more then i anticipated.. and it says two coats so after a couple of hours i put another on. If i could go back i probably would have chosen a more subtle color but i figured my wood was redwood so i guess the color redwood makes sense.. i do like how it makes my plants really pop out though.. it actually looks not so bad. just not what i was expecting.. it will be very bright on the street and hope my neighbors don't mind.. as far as how long this lasts will be determined in time and i will update in the future. I feel with the kind of wood i have this will last a long time.. there is a guarantee on it so those who complain, i hope you are taking up the offer. I am trusting that the label of 8 yrs is correct but lets see.. here are some pictures of the fence before and after.. perhaps i should have done a transparent.. oh well. whats done is done.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by mikeinwin NOT the same color as Redwood Behr Stain I have purchased before
I decided to step it up a notch this time and purchase the longer lasting 6-year deck, 8 year railing. I applied it to my deck after using Behr stripper and Behr wood renewing product. Wow. It is orange. Not sure what happened at the factory but I do not have the energy to strip this all back off, and it does not go with my gray house. I will be painting the deck instead.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by N0208369 Great Stain for Outdoor Projects
The stain applied very easy, was consistent and the color was great. One coat was all it needed. Great value also. Picture says it all.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Chet1234 Orange and solid, barely transparent
I will start off by telling you that if you are expecting semi transparent you are going to be disappointed. The redwood color is barely transparent, way too solid. To make matters worse the "redwood" color is ORANGE, not redwood. I applied the product to a cleaned and power washed deck. Applied the product in the morning so that it was cool enough. I have a very large deck and this is the fourth time staining it, but first time with a Beyer product.
I am rating this product a 3 star for now as i am not sure how well the product will actually work, right now it seems to be sitting too high or on top of the wood - lending credibility to other reviewers that state the product peels off very quickly on flat surfaces. For almost $40 a gallon I would expect much much better from Beyer.
