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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EarlP 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.

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 2.0 out of 5.0 by luv2cruise Great for fences, not so good on decks
VERY disappointed in product on the deck. After only 1 year the whole deck is peeling, even the part under a covered pergola. Redwood deck was prepped correctly using deck wash, but that didn't seem to matter. Other reviewers had this same issue, and I wish I would have listened to them. I chose this product because it washed up with soap, so I thought that would be much easier than oil based stain. BIG mistake, now I have a lot of work ahead of me trying to remove all of this stain before I can start over with a new product. I will mention that I also did use this product on cedar fencing, and there so far no problems there and it looks terrific a year later. Would only recommend for fences, not redwood decks.

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 Loren Best All-In-One purchase ever
My backyard had new deck and fence since 7 years ago, I used transparent wood finish to have nature redwood color, after 7 years the paint looks a little bit ugly; I consulted to friend and who recommend to use Behr All-In-One wood stain & sealer, it is satisfaction guaranteed 10 years for deck and 25 years for fences, there are plenty of solid color available; I choiced Bright Tamra color and spent one day to completed job for my deck and fence; it is worth investment to keep my deck and fence looks a brand new.
