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!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by weekendwarrior16 Best value for staining a fence
We are staining our fence and are pleased with the color. It is also easy to apply and offers protection from the elements.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Wifesyardboy Horrible coverage
If you are going to use this on an old fence ... Pass ! It covers horribly . Inconsistent color. It took 12 gallons to do a 6 foot by 140 ft fence . I spoke to other customers with similar experiences . It took 25 gallons to do her fence . 220 ft by 6 ft front and back.
Opt instead for a solid color as the semi transparent is horrible . It may do fine on new decks with perfect finishes but for Anthing that is older and has to be pressure washed and stained it is a waste of money .
Almost $400 to stain the fence. Woman who works at Home Depot said " it will cover :400to 500 sq/ft .... I am gonna ask her on what planet was that because it sure ain't on this one !

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by PittsburghNights 4 Months later, wood is absorbing water
I applied this on my deck, about 25 years old. The deck was previously coated with a waterproofing product from a different manufacturer. I saw the advertisements for Behr having longer durability than others, and I decided to give it a try. 4 months later, rain water is not beading, but appears to be soaking into the wood. I used it according to instructions, the old clear waterproofing product was off, and no water was beading on the deck. Applied two coats of this product, used just about as much as is suggested based on the square footage for my deck, so I assume the thickness of the application was was at least in the right ballpark. I should add that the deck is barely used. We use our screened in porch, and the deck is next to it, but I only go out there to use the grill, even though that part of the deck is quite large. I think the color of the product is amazing - the deck looks spectacular. The only thing is that it doesn't appear to be 'weather proofing' the wood.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MytGrandma Most Beautiful Fence in my entire subdivision!!!
I am an older single lady and wanted my fence to be a specific color to match my home accents. The Bordeaux Solid Color Exterior Wood Stain & Finishes is absolutely the BEST!! The paint went on well and with the help of my church I was able to finish this job and everyone loves the look and color. I believe my fence is the richest and best fence around. I am sure that even with the weather that my fence will look lovely long after I am gone from this life and I thank you for this. Quality is hard to find in paint _ Believe me! Thank-You Everyone at BEHR. Beverly Tremayne

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Melmoses Wow! Best stain I have ever used!
We just built a new deck from pressure treated pine lumber. I have used Behr paint products for many years & they are excellent so I decided to try this stain. It is just like the paint - excellent. The application was very easy, cleanup also easy and the end result was beautiful! Over many years I used other stains that were supposed to be "the best" but there is no comparison to this Behr stain. One coat and it looked great and protected it from a rain. Two coats and it is simply beautiful and I feel my new deck is really protected for several years.
