Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by veener Made a 10 year old fence looks like new
When we moved into our house about 2 years ago there was a ceder fence installed. It was very gray. This year I power washed it. Was shocked how clean it came out. After this to protect it I used this product.
I am not sure if if it was because our fence was cedar or because of the age but I went though 24gal of this Bahr to cover about 40 panels front and back. Each panel is 4'x6'. Went over 2 times what it states it would cover.
To apply it I used a Wagner PaintReady System High-Volume Low Pressure. It worked great. If doing a fence I would recommend a sprayer with this product. Read some people has issues using a sprayer. Not sure if this only works with some sprayers so that is the reason I listed what I used.
Very much recommend you have these shaken up at at store before using. I bought a small sample can and found out that there is heavy separation at the bottom. Hard to stir in. Trying that with a 5gl bucket would have been a lot worse.
I love the face lift this gave to our backyard. This stuff is so easy for cleaning!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by brandlic I love BEHR stains and paint.
This was easy to mix and apply. Deck looks great. We will see if it looks this good after 4 years (warranty period). I was able to use a deck sprayer to apply on the rails. And I used the Renuvo deck staining tool for the floor. Worked out great. It stained a lot darker than the picture on the can showed. but still looks good.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Washington734 Not worth it, EVER!
Worst product ever. The stain is already peeling!!! It's not even been a full year. Our deck is old and we spent several weekends cleaning and preparing our wrap around deck, including pressure washing. We did this last summer and applied 2 coats. In between the coats we waited a full 24 hours before the next coat. Now it's fully coming off. Some of our old wood was rotting so we had to replace them, clearly this horrible product cannot even work with brand new wood. Don't ever buy this product if you want it to last. I seriously want my money back because this product is not cheap and it didn't even do the job right.

Couple of issues with this stain.
1. Very difficult to apply, it had a lot of streaking. If you are familiar with Oil Stains, you will hate this stain.
2. Everywhere on the deck that was exposed to the rain is now pealing off the deck.
The stain was applied on a new cedar deck in August, we had a lot rain this year in the NW and it is now March. That is 8 months.
The good thing, we can strip it with house water pressure.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KnobbyKnees Good product - Time will tell the story
Used this on 2 Portable sheds that had pressure treated plywood siding. Both sheds are 4 years old and had a water based stained applied when purchased, so I had to stick with a water based product and bought Behr Transparent Cedar tone 501. I only power washed the sheds and let them dry for over a week before staining. I applied the stain using a brush and would apply to the entire board length before moving on to the next to avoid overlap marks. I only use a brush when staining this type of material because it works the stain into the wood much better than rollers or spraying. The stain went on smooth and the wood grain stood out and looks beautiful. I waited a day and applied a second coat. The second coat only used about half the stain as the first coat. It darkened the first coat just a little and the wood grain still shows through and looks great. Both sheds turned out beautiful. Time will tell if the finish lasts 6 years like the label states.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BrandonGirl Nice finish! Great product!
We stained a new deck with the Transparent Premium Weatherproofing all in One. It looks fabulous. We did use the prep liquid and then applied with a pad. We waited until we had a low humidity day. Unfortunately, the humidity here in Florida has been over 80% every day since 36 hours after we stained. It is still curing after 2 weeks. Looks great and can't wait for it to get done curing so we can enjoy!

I applied this to a fence that was dry and 10 years old. It brought the fence back to a great color and lush deep finish. It looks great, required a coat and a 1/2 and was easy to apply and spread. Love the redwood color. Very easy clean up and worked great with a sprayer.
