Used this stuff on some projects over two weeks ago and it is still sticky. Wouldn't recommend using it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Tomy2t0ne The worst stain ever
If you value your personal time and your money do not use this product. I had a brand new deck that i bought this stain for. I let the deck season for one year. I used Behrs wood cleaner before i put the stain down to make sure i had a clean surface for a nice bond. I'm so glad that i only painted the floor of the deck and not the entire thing. The deck looked great when i got done. However, within three months all of the stain started to pop up and began to look terrible. I just finised pressure washing, stripping and sanding the entire deck. I thought i was using a quality product that would save me time. So far i've spent about 7 hours to get the deck back to the way it was so i can use a real product. I've always been happy with behr paints inside but this event will probably keep me from buying any of their products again. It's terrible that products like this are out there. Don't waste your time or money. Use oil based products for the deck there is no way around it.

We used this stain (grey) on a coffee table we made out of pallet wood. It looks gorgeous! It is perfectly distressed looking with one coat using a brush and then wiping with a cloth. Love it!

Without a doubt the worst stain or paint product I've ever used. I applied to a new deck that was allowed to season two months. Used the Behr cleaner prep, and allowed to dry thoroughly. Applied two coats of stain.
The finish was very blotched with light areas and dark areas. Tried to add a third coat to the light areas hoping I would get a more uniform color. Big mistake. The third coat almost looks like a different color. My beautiful new deck now looks terrible. I WILL NEVER BUY A BEHR PRODUCT AGAIN.

This product is a joke. I too bought a semi transparent stain hoping to see a little wood grain. Even went with a really light beige color. It looks just like paint on first stroke. No wood grain can be seen. My deck was dry, no rain in weeks, wood cured and cleaned and the stain started to peel and flake in no time. It has been exactly 2 years now and it's so bad I have to remove it and sand and prep and clean it and go with another brand. The initial peeling took place after just 9 months though. DO NOT BUY! I even hired a professional company to apply it. Not user error. Had purchased 15 gallons of this garbage and now it's costing me more money.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by tlc71 Great looking, but took more than expected.
I am very satisfied with the final appearance of my pine fence after using this product. The pine wood grain is visible and it brings a whole new look to my yard. The only downside was that it suggested we use 5 gallons to cover our square footage and it took 8. We experimented with application techniques and found that the brush was the best method, as spraying and rolling the product did not look so good. I would recommend this product if you are willing to take the time to brush it. If you are looking for an application process that will save more time, you might have to look for a different product. Overall, I am very happy with the end result.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mustifer Very disappointed
I have used Behr semi-transparent fence & siding wood stain for 20 yrs. on my deck, and absolutely love it, but this year, when I saw that it now came in a 6 yr. stain as well as the 3 yr. that I have always used, I decided to try it, and I was very disappointed. It is not semi-transparant at all; it goes on more like a thin paint, and thus there are continuous overlap marks. To get rid of it, I finally went back & bought cans of the 3 yr., and mixed it 1/4 6-yr. to 3/4 3-yr. Also, the part where I had used just the 6 yr. is still sticky and it has been almost two months since I did it, while the 3 yr. dried right away and is beautiful.
