Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jojo Applied in July 2013 and it has bubbled and needs to come off
Applied as directed. Good the first year. Started to bubble, and now the 5/4 planking has rotted in places. Searching for the correct paint stripper to remove this product from remaining viable wood posts.

The Tugboat Brown color looked a lot darker on the can and my husband was very unhappy with the "chocolate milk" look this gave. It is very thick and much harder to apply than regular paint or stain, which is understandable, but didn't win me any points with my husband! It is still a work in progress and hopefully someday the entire deck will be finished! I hope it holds up over our harsh Ohio winter or it may never be finished.

Great Product and Great Color! Two coats were definitely needed but it took are weathered, splintered deck and made it new again! No splinters... Now I can dance bare foot on the deck just like the people in the commercials! :)

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by natgro RUINED MY DECK
I prepped and applied exactly as instructions say approximately 5 weeks ago. I live in Upcountry Maui- the temperatures NEVER exceed recommended application temps, high or low, year-round. It looked great! 4 weeks later it started bubbling up all over the deck. Really nasty. Cracking and chipping can only be what lies ahead. The house is for sale and my big selling point is now a complete eyesore. I will have no choice but to give a buyer a credit to replace the whole deck. I am going to lose $5,000 by using $150. worth of this 'easy to use, miracle product'!
Just sick after seeing all the similar complaints on this site and many others on the web. Wow, guess I am not alone. I don't think any other Home Depot product reviews have more 1-star reviews than any other star reviews. Point being- THEY KNOW this is a terrible product that is costing buyers HUGE amounts of money to remedy, yet they KEEP SELLING IT.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Pete Horrible - Do not buy
We applied this product and followed the directions exactly. After two years it needs to be completely redone. There are cracks in almost all of the deck boards (even in areas that are not walked on like railings) and big areas where the finish has come completely off leaving exposed wood. The staff at the local Home Depot store don't even recommend this when you ask them about it. I spent a lot of time and money on this, and now I'll be switching products.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by EP Waste of money!
Goes on like thick paste. Added 2 coats and already fading within 30 days. Also, purchased the product based on a Promotion for $10 off. Submitted the receipt and all pertinent then get a return postcard stating "no qualified products eligible for rebate based upon sales receipt info provided". So the product lacks quality and they use false advertising??

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JP This Stuff Should be Taken Off the Market
This stuff truly should be taken off the market - it is complete garbage. We used the textured version and it was an awful experience. We had more than our fair share of problems using this stain. All we were trying to do was stain a small 160 sq ft deck - nothing huge, nothing fancy. Behr says that One gallon covers up to 75 sq ft for two coats. It took us FOUR gallons to apply ONE coat to our deck. We are so unhappy with the finished outcome that we may re-strip the deck and find a different type of stain product to use. Behr should be embarrassed to sell this product - it goes on like glue and looks like globbed glue when it dries. A child could have finger painted the look of our deck better than this stain. Save yourself the hassle and money - this entire project (buying 4 gallons of stain, behr stripper and the cleanser) cost us over $200 and we are going to go back and start from scratch.
