Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Denger Excellent results
I stained my deck this summer with this product. It was a lot of work as I used the cleaner, the stripper and gave it a sand bit I am very pleased with the results. Yes I would recommend it. I used some other brand of stain before but it started to peel off the a few months after but not the Behr.

First I want to say I followed all the preparation instructions to the letter. I cleaned the deck twice with proper deck cleaner let the deck dry for a day before applying Behr Premium Weather Proofing as per the instructions on the can.
I applied it in August of 2013 and it looked amazing but once the snow melted in April the deck looked terrible peeling everywhere except under our deck box where the snow didn't touch it.
I have used the Behr water proofing before and loved it but I bought premium instead because they didn't have the colour we wanted in the water proofing.
Behr Premium Weather Proofing seemed like it didn't penetrate the wood where as the cheaper Behr Water Proofing was more of a oil stain that penetrated the wood and wore more evenly over a few years.
After reading the reviews it seems to work fine in warmer climates in the southern United States but in Canada and northern States the reviews aren't good.
I would not buy this product if you live anywhere that you have snow for several months over the winter.

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HotNess Great Product, really lasts.
We applied this on the backside (southwesterly exterior wall) of our cedar bat and board sided house back in spring 2009. Our cedar had been painted once so we used a pressure washer to strip the paint and then after it dried for a day we applied one coat of the BEHR #501 with 4" brushes. The next day we went to look at it and it appeared wet, but upon inspection, that is just how it looks. After 4 years, it still looks the same wet look as it did that first day after, with no graying or other fade as far as I can tell. We have since applied it to our 1405 sq ft home, and it took less than 5 gallons.I highly recommend this product, and all our guests who see it say the same thing- "Is that stain still wet?". Great product, great coverage, be careful not to overlap when you take a break and start back, a second coat makes it noticeably darker. Highly recommend that you pressure wash away any graying of your wood before applying, if you don't, it will be very dark. Fresh wood turns a beautiful reddish-gold color when this cedar naturaltone #501 is applied.

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
