The natural sequoia is a beautiful color, the transparent stain is stunning on the railings of our deck and the overhead pergola. I am thrilled with how beautiful it is. HOWEVER, we also used the transparent stain on the surface of the deck and the stairs and it is horrible. The stain did not soak into the deck as it did on the railings so it scratches off whenever we move a chair on it or the dog runs across it. Extremely disappointed in its durability on the walking surfaces. We plan on color matching (because we love the color) into a Deckover type paint for the top of the deck and stairs. It's more work but since we used Deckover on our wooden pool deck 2 years ago we are impressed with how it has held up.

I do agree with other posts about application method, the pad is the only way to go. Rollers are bad idea and little to thick for a sprayer. Got the transparent with the Golden Honey stain and ended up being a lot darker (Orange) than expected but still looks good to me. We waited till the sun was off the deck and deck temp was in the 70's and it went on very well with the pad applicator.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Behrforlife2014 RICHEST LOOKING CEDAR DECK EVER!
I used this product on my cedar deck in Fall 2014 and am totaling enjoying it now after the snow left. It's raining as I type this and the surface of the deck is doing just what the stain can said! I love this Behr product! The application was easy and the amount of stain I used went further than I thought, saving me money. I have a senior graduation party this year with guests coming and I'm very excited to have them dine on my deck...it makes me look good.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JBHSV Good Product, HARD to apply
This product should come with a warning. On a new deck that had aged for a season as recommended, this product was extremely hard to apply. You MUST use pads to apply. If you leave any bubbles or any thicker areas, it dries very dark compared to other areas. It is impossible to sand by hand. We followed all recommendations and prepped correctly. The best advice I can give is: do not apply in sunlight. Forget it - it dries before you can spread it. You must keep wet edges. Also - keep a "dry" pad/brush nearby to remove any and all heavier areas. Do not allow the product to dry unless you are finished with that area or the overlaps will be horrible. The final color is more orange (we did the natural transparent) than I wanted, but I'm sure it will age. Behr should have done a better job in research and development as decks are typically in a sunny area. We really screwed up with the first coat but then got out very early and completed the second before the sun hit the deck. Very, very hard to apply. Finish looks like it will protect the wood well. But - this was a brand new deck, and I will now forever more have overlap and puddling marks that look bad. Beware - cooler, shaded application with a dry pad, dry brush and absolute ability to ensure wet edges are a MUST. Do not try a roller - that was a disaster. It is possible to apply this product, but it is beyond frustrating.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by floridagld Less Work-Less "Paint"..Great Results
We have had our mountain vacation cabin for about 20 years now. Every few years we have to clean like crazy and reseal the decking. Last fall we change our normal brand and tried your Behr Premium Transparent All in One. Fast forward a year later and the deck still looks like just refinished and new. Not only are we protected the product was easier to apply than that other brand and I feel we will not have to redo next year. The all in one saved us steps, time, and money because we didn't have to buy two other products. Love that! Thus saving money in the long run..wear and tear and labor. We are very pleased and now looking into doing the trim this summer with your semi gloss paints.

I have never been more pleased with a product !! It went on so easily and covered so well. We took the advise of our go to guy at Home Depot in North Myrtle Beach, SC and cleaned the deck very well before we started. This is a very important step !! We purchased the recommended amount of stain and went to work. Our deck is beautiful !!!
We live 3 miles from the beach and we were told this is the go to product for the intense heat & salt air ......... and I will say it again " we can not be more pleased." Thank you for your product :-D

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HistoricLaborOfLove Extremely pleased. Exceeded expectations!
The application was very easy and coverage exactly as described. (Surface was prepared as directed, THIS IS IMPORTANT PEOPLE.) The color is rich and exactly what we expected from the samples in the store. Thrilled with the results!
* Please understand that if you don't prep in the correct manner, there is no stain that will give you the correct results.
