Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sconie Excellent stain---Surprised by How "Orange" or "Coppery" the "Naturaltone Cedar" Color is....
I ordered and received 20 gallons of this product, the same to re-stain my Lake Superior area cottage and garage. Previously----many, many, years ago----I had used Behr's Premium Solid Color Wood Stain in Cedar, DP-39, and was very pleasantly impressed with the longevity of the product on vertical cedar lap siding.
I endeavored to match the same color that I had previously used, with "Cedar Naturaltone" being recommended as a possible match. (Note: I had emailed Behr Customer Service about obtaining an exact replacement for DP-39, only to be told that it was discontinued and that----more or less---I was on my own in terms of matching the color, i.e., "Go to Home Depot and try to do a color match using swatches, etc."----Long story short, do not expect much in the way of good, solid, customer/technical support from Behr.)
This color is much, much "orangier" (is that even a word?) or "coppery" than the DP-39 "Cedar" that I had previously used. My wife actually likes this color better than the DP-39; I'm okay with it, however, I'm still surprised how much brighter it is than either DP-39 or the swatches which I inspected at Home Depot.
Product went-on well, coverage was excellent and I suspect that it, like the Behr Premium product which it was covering, will prove to be superior in terms of longevity.

I'm a 67 year old lady and I have a very weathered wood deck that needed to be stained. I have only done 2/3 of the deck and it looks beautiful, can't wait to finish. Right now I'm very pleased!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Alan Two coats and Done !!!!!!!!!!
I was slacking the past few years keeping up on the deck maintenance. I usually get a 5 year stain. I decided to go with this 10 year. What a great product !!!! I always buy Bear and I know its not the cheapest but its worth every penny spent. I did 2 coats and covered everything even my BBQ Mat stains. Take your time when painting and it will come out awesome !!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by newhopejoe Nice Job on Pergola and Deck
I have used this product several times and have found it to be easy to use and prov ides good coverage.
I use the Pinto White on my Pergola and Cedar on my Deck.
Solid colors do a wonderful job of covering wood surfaces and last for quite a while.
Recommend using this product. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Kevinfk 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.]

Purchased 5 gallons of California Rustic Premium Deck Stain and applied 2 weeks ago. Application is very easy. Look is great and if history is a guide I should get 10+ years before having to re-stain. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tammy4NDFI Didn't have to replace 10+ year old fence and deck
We were ready to replace our fence and deck until we got an estimate of cost. We decided to try power-washing and staining instead. We are extremely pleased with the results! It looks like we got a brand new deck and fence! This stain was easy to apply. I just used a stain paint brush for the deck (so I could get between the boards) and used both a brush and roller for the fence. We went with the chocolate transparent on the fence and chocolate solid on the deck. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
