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.

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 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.

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.

I made our old deck and fence look brand new / thanks.

It went on great; fast and easy. Now we will do the house to match the planters. We might even use a complimentary color for the deck
