I have had this coating on my deck and house siding for 4 years. Its color has remained constant. It has kept my treated lumber deck from developing surface cracks. By the way the lumber on my deck is over 30 years old. I have not always used this product during that time frame but of the 3 others I have used it is the best and by far the easiest to clean up. One note of caution, I have sprayed it, rolled it on, and brushed it on, Two coats, brushed on is the only way to go if you want it to last. Power washing before coating helps with the life expectancy. Good Luck.

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.

Extremely pleased with this product. T-129 Chocolate was the color I choose and was a bit apprehensive after the application. Directions advised 72 hours to cure and once the time had lapsed the color was perfect.

Refinished the 2 decks in my backyard last weekend. I have been using the Behr premium transparent weatherproofing Cedar Naturaltone no. 501 product for many years. Each application has continued to provide protection for many years. Cleanup is a breeze. I would highly recommend it to all.

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.

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.
