Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rpredoli Great for cedar fences!
We chose the terra cotta color for this paint and I used an airless paint sprayer to do my entire backyard wood fence. One coat coverage and the look is fantastic! Just like I have a new fence. The paint penetrated the wood quickly, dried quickly, and still let the wood grain come through.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed Epic Fail of a Product
The very first winter after applying this product it was flaking off in large amounts. It does NOT hold up to rain. I thought that I must have gotten a bad batch, so I bought another 5 gallons and tried again with the same results. I'm now $350 down and left having to remove the stain from about 1000 sf deck.
I will be following up this post with complaints to both Home Depot and Behr. I'll also be switching to stain from Parr Lumber instead.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BobP Great durability if applied properly!!
Follow Behr's application instructions on the container. Power wash your deck first with a good cleaner. Make sure it's completely dry, and no rain in the forecast for at least 24 hours before application.
Use a good quality brush to work the stain into the wood. Wait at least 72 hours to fully cure and give it another coat.
I coated my deck 2 years ago and it still looks good, no peeling or fading. This product was rated #1 by Consumer Reports for durability.

Home Depot applied Behr 5013 solid color (redwood) onto my 900 sq ft deck in Spring 2009. After 4.5 years in Chicago, it still looked great, but there was some minor peeling / bare wood on the deck itself. A quick pressure wash and maybe 10 sanding spots, we brushed the left over latex stain (1.5 gallons) onto only the flat surfaces in about 8 hours. Looks brand new again! Great product!!! Hope to get another 5 years out of it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ScottE Really adheres to the wood!
I love this stain. It goes on somewhat thick to give great protection, and I can almost feel it seeping into my old wood. I did the balusters a couple of years ago, and they still look freshly painted. This year I did the floor, and given the age of the wood, it really made such a huge difference.

If you follow the directions on the can you will be impressed. Excellent coverage very forgiving not watery like regular stains this acts more like paint than stain

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EarlPhillips Ponderosa Green - Great Product - Two Coats
I have used Behr solid deck stain for years but last only about two... changed to Premium solid deck stain and changed from grey to ponderosa green. Great coverage but still needed two coats. I have a 1200 square foot deck with a 18x20 pavilion. What a difference ... looks great, this winter will tell how well it performs.
