So far I've applied this twice this spring. The first time I sprayed it on and it never cured (even after weeks it was sticky). I was told I must have over applied and should strip it and start over . After striping, cleaning and prepping again I applied two thin coats with a brush to the specifications on the can. Again I'm left with a very sticky deck. Now I've spent over $200 just to make my deck unusable. I can't describe how disappointing and discouraging this has been. I'm an avid DIYer and this is easily the worst product I've ever used. I wish I would have read more reviews before purchasing. DO NOT BUY THIS.

I stained a new deck in the summer of 2016 with this product and it is already peeling. Very dissatisfied! I used Cabot stain in the past but my deck builder recommended Behr. I'm going back to Cabot.

I used this stain about two years ago, on new timbers on a long retaining wall. Behr stain was recommended by the contractor who built the wall. The stain is holding up beautifully. The horizontal surface on the top of the wall now has mildew that needs to be cleaned, but that is to be expected on any outdoor surface. The vertical timbers look as good as they did when freshly stained. Note that I did prep the wall exactly following the instructions on the stain, using Behr #63 Wood Cleaner and applying two coats of stain. I doubt you can expect great results without prepping properly. I think the Behr stain did a better job than the Sherwin William stain I used on the deck.

If you want to ruin your beautiful wood deck use this product. Always tacky never dries. I wish i could remove it but it sticks to the wood like GLUE and feels like GLUE. THIS IS NOT A STAIN IT IS A PAINT!!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Emchj didn't last a year
I had a new cedar deck built on the back of my house and I waited a few months for it to cure in the environment. After a few months i cleaned the deck with their deck cleaner and applied the stain. At first it looked great,. After a Chicago winter at the start of Spring it started to peel. Now at the end of June significant portions of this stain are peeling off and I am having to plan to pressure wash it off and apply another brand. Very dissapointed.

I researched the heck out of this. Used to use Cabot, but they changed the stain. I always prep my deck carefully, and did so this time as well. Had perfect weather to apply.
After a very mild winter in SW Connecticut, its peeling already. At least I didnt waste my time putting it on my other decks....

I stained 3 decks at my house. Approx. 300 sq ft. 10 months ago, it is all peeling off. It was all new cedar. Do not use this product.

Sanded wood floor down to the raw wood. Applied this which was try dry within 2 hours and totally within 72 hours. Well it's now been over 2 WEEKS and it's still tacky. I hope it will dry someday. The floor has to be used so hopefully I don't end up with many foot prints. Looks good just doesn't dry very well.
