Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by daRabbit Overall a good product
I bought this "semi-transparent" stain, but I wish I would have read a couple reviews first. There was no problem with the product, it covered well and the color was true to the sample, but it is more of a paint than a stain. I applied 2 coats, expecting the product to be absorbed, but it didn't quit absorb as much as I thought and I was left with a surface that looks more painted than stained.
The clean up was easy with soap and water and the pump sprayer I used did not end up needing to be thrown away as I expect after use.
Overall the product is good but I would caution buyers to buy the transparent stain if they are looking for a true stained appearance!

Did my deck with Behrs semi-transparent premicm stain last spring. I cleaned the deck as specified and applied with a pad The Behr sales rep was at Home Depot and he actually put what I need in the cart. This spring I noticed peeling at numerous spots. What makes it worse was that it was recommended by consumer Reports.

Our house was built 28 years ago. We have used many different brands of waterproofing, stain, wood preserver. They only lasted 1 year but we made it last 2. Wood would turn black in areas and bleach out from sun in other's. We always power washed first, which is an awful job to begin with. Just happen to stumble on to Behr Stain and Waterproffing. It has been on 6 years now and going strong! Wish we knew about this product many moons ago. We put it on by brush....so it would soak in better..worth it!

My house has a portion that is covered with wood. I love the rustic look that goes along with my wood-grain siding. The Behr semi-transparent color that I chose keeps the wood colored to perfection. Thanks for a great product.

I built a new horizontal board fence and wanted to provide the most protection AND get my choice of color. This product fit the requirements perfectly. Easy application with a brush for the first coat and even more so for the 2nd coat. Coverage estimate was very accurate.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DONC Great Stain. MUST PREPARE CORRECTLY.
This is a high product. I could not emphasize enough that in order for ANY stain to last you NEED to do the prep work...i.e. fence washing etc. I just finished 4500 sq feet of fence. It took me 50 gallons of this stain. Expensive ...yes....will it last 10 years......yes. DO THE PREP WORK....IT WILL LAST. (It took me 2 weeks 3 hours a day to do the job) and yes I work full time.

We used this stain (grey) on a coffee table we made out of pallet wood. It looks gorgeous! It is perfectly distressed looking with one coat using a brush and then wiping with a cloth. Love it!
