Customer Questions & Answers

What is the best grit sand paper for new wood and how much prep needed to use solid stain to get the most years of this product

Asked by: Anonymous
I always use 60-80 as I believe the others are too fine for proper adhesion. Prep is always the key to longevity. Power wash with a cleaner or stripper and neutralize/brighten, then sand if necessary.

Can this product be applied with a garden sprayer?

Some stains are very thick and will clog a typical garden sprayer, what is the viscosity of this product like, and does it contain any solids or particulate matter?
Asked by: Anonymous
NO, you will need an airless sprayer.

1 gal. #SC-137 Drift Gray Solid Color Waterproofing Stain and Sealer is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 228.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Has A Serious Issue I have purchased 50 or so gallons of this product over the last 7 years to weather proof our home on Hatteras Island, NC. My experience has been that vertical applications hold up very well, but horizontal applications do not fare nearly as well, requiring repainting every 2-3 years. The product does not stain treated exterior lumber, rather it forms a coating on top of the wood surface, even when heavily sanded. The hard rain and the marine climate, plus staining of the paint by leaves and soil residue, deteriorates the surface and the coating peels off. This does not happen on vertical surfaces, even using the same lumber. And this product is expensive in the iniitial purchase, not to mention the frequent applications. I am now considering using a UV resistant epoxy paint instead for better adhesion. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Old fence looks new again!! We had a fence that was in decent shape structure wise but the color was so faded and gray it made the whole backyard look gross. I wanted to stain it, and found this product - it goes on like paint and covered the fence perfectly with a sprayer. We used the dark chocolate color on the fence. Looks amazing and brand new. Would recommend to anyone!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 Star So Far - 1 Year and 1 Winter In... So my 25 year old deck has been a headache from day one when we moved in 5 years ago... It is a PT deck that was painted (why?) and peeling. So we scraped and repainted with the Behr deck paint, but after one Boston winter, it was peeling anew. And after two it was good to go. So we spent an ungodly amount of time stripping the deck of all the old paint and tried a deck stain from Sherwin Williams or whatever and that had the lasting strength of the paint we used the first time... Clearly failing after the first winter and looked crud after the second. Now the winter of 2014 in Boston was insane, but still, it was just two years on bare wood. So we went with the consumer reports best pick - or so we thought. Not until later did I find that DR loved the cheap Behr product. But what was done was done. And I was nervous about all the 1 and 2 star reviews of this product after the fact. But 1 solid (but mild Boston winter) in, the deck looks 100%. I am pleased as punch. I even had to do some rust reforming on some old nails and putty fills in other areas. No issues with the stain there either. To be honest, even if I had to restain those those every year, I would be OK, but given a 100% success rate after the first winter on such an old deck, I love it. Now I dont know why the other decks fail with this stain, but if I had to guess, a poor prep can explain a lot. Even with this one, I spend a good month prepping the 1,000 sq foot deck, In the end who knows... I doubt and dont count on a 10 year life. But even 5 would be amazing. I will update as needed...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still going strong Behr Premium was applied to a 25 year old deck. This was the first solid color stain applied. Previous semi trans stains were applied every three to five years. The Behr Premium has been on for four years and still is solid, not pealing and washes clean with a hose. Very pleased with this product. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't make it through one winter Bought this product, as well as the pre-washes. Followed all of the instructions for washing, drying, and coats to a T. After our first winter, spring comes around and now everything is peeling. It also warped many of our boards. I would not recommend. 10 years must really be a stretch, as we didn't even make it 10 months... [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best stain / wood sealer I've used I have gone through 9 gallons painting old, dried, cracking fences that have been neglected for years. I can definitely see a major improvement to the wood after being sealed and treated with this stain/sealer. The completed sections look so different from the untreated sections.
