Answer: 
Hello CM,
Thanks for your question. That's right--a maintenance of the same product is okay as long as the surface is cleaned and prepared properly. Best wishes for your project!

Answer: 
Yes you can. Just make sure you clean the surface good. It's not required, but I use a pressure washer. Gets rid of weathering, and enhances the wood when stain is applied. Have fun!

Answer: 
With a wood stain your "primer" is surface preparation. Be sure to follow Behr's instructions regarding using a "product such as Behr Premium No 64 wood stain & finish Stripper to remove loose wood fibers, latex, oil-based and 100% acrylic coating on new or weathered wood. Behr Premium No 63 all-in-one wood cleaner MUST be used following No 64 to clean, brighten & neutralize wood. When No 64 is not Read More

When No 64 is not needed, use a product such as No 63 to clean and brighten the wood surface and to remove light to medium exterior stains caused by mold, mildew, algae & fungus. Rinse thoroughly and allow to dry before coating. On new wood, use a product such as No 63 to remove mill glaze and open the pores of the wood. Lightly sand to remove remaining wood fibers/fuzz."

Answer: 
The key is good preparation and a clean surface. Examine the fence to see if it is sufficiently clean before applying the paint or stain. I recommend using Behr's All-in-One Wood Cleaner before painting your fence. I used it to clean my deck before staining and I am very pleased with the final result.

Answer: 
Unless it took your fence 3 months to dry you are stretching the envelope of the instructions which recommend that the fence "be washed with products such as Behr Premium No 63 and/or No 64 and allowed to dry." For best results I recommend you follow their instructions.

Answer: 
Behr states that "Use of rollers should be limited to rough surfaces only. Use 3/8" nap or longer when appropriate." It appears that a brush or pad applicator might be more appropriate for a deck surface.

Hello and thank you for your question. When using BEHR PREMIUM® Semi-Transparent Weatherproofing All-In-One Wood Stain & Sealer, use a nylon/polyester brush for areas requiring more accuracy. Use of rollers should be limited to rough surfaces only (use 3/8” nap or longer when appropriate). Hope this helps and best of luck on your project!

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 129 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Deck looks great Applied Behr Semi-Transparent stain to my deck in Sept 2015. I had cleaned the deck thoroughly with Behr No. 63 All-in-One Wood Cleaner over the prior two weekends. The stain was easy to apply. We used a pad applicator and then back brushed with a paint brush. The first coat dried enough to walk across after a couple of hours, and then we applied a second coat to the horizontal surfaces. The new stain caused the deck to feel tacky or sticky after it had dried, but it was not a significant issue and was less each day until it went away after a good rain. The color closely matched my expectations and looked very uniform. Before and after pictures attached. May 15, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Does not work on CEDAR at all This Behr stain does not penetrate into the wood like the product claims it should. It dries on top of the surface like a paint. After 10 months, the stain was peeling all over the place... and the application instructions (including prepping with #63) were followed exactly. Applying the Behr Premium Stain is like painting your deck except it does not apply evenly. It dries extremely fast and will show overlaps. There is no penetration AT ALL into a cedar deck... you are essentially applying paint that will peel after a couple seasons of weather. Horrible product - buyer beware! February 27, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by no more behr stain for me ever! I drove 200 miles to buy Behr stain because I was told it's the best. ..not! I high pressure hosed 4 decks, let the decks dry for 2 warm weeks, bought 3 5 gallon buckets, looked beautiful. Come spring the stain is all peeling off! Emailed the company, no response. All that hard work for nothing, I will never use this product again! July 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Covers like a fine blanket Used this on a fence I put up a year ago. Goes on great, drys quick, covers great. June 28, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Look good but dry tacky Deck looks good but after one week it is still sticky and tacky deck cleaned just the way homedepot and directions said July 18, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Should have read the reviews prior to purchase and use of this semi transparent acrylic paint This rubbery acrylic paint (at best). Can see every brush stroke. It's not really the grain of the wood that appears through the "semi transparency" but more like the streaks remaining to dry, left behind by the brush. Bought two 5 gallon pails of this rather expensive mistake. Used one on my three rail farm fence. Going to find someone I don't like and give them the other 5 gallon pail. My only hope is that it doesn't stand up to its durability and peels off in a uniform sheet. Although I do have to comment on the ease of clean up. If you use a plastic pail to dip your brush into, when you are finished for the day, just let it sit over night and you can peel every bit of stain (err, I mean paint) out of the plastic pail and it will look new again. June 9, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Do Not Buy Having stained and restrained numerous decks, I tried this product at the request of a home owner. It is by far the worst stain or paint I have ever used. The surface has remained tacky for six weeks. The surface is blotchy and has a muddy appearance. It amazes me that Home Depot sells this product. Behr suggested washing with soapy water. Didn't help. Behr said wait several days until it dried. It never did. Behr now says the only recourse is to strip it and start over. They offer to supply more stain. I wouldn't use this product again even if it was free. May 16, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Beware of the Behr I applied Behr deck stain less than two years ago and it is now coming up in sheets. I spent almost $600 in stain and it is now a complete waste. My decking was less than a year old and properly prepped with Behr deck cleaner and dry before application. Trust me - Do Not Waste Your Money on Behr. June 6, 2016
