It does not behave like stain. I used it about 3 years ago and it didn't last over the winter. In the spring my deck looked terrible with pealed paint all over. I asked for and got a refund from Thompson's, however, I am left with a maintenance nightmare which has required me to paint my deck every year. Do not used this product unless you want to repaint your deck for eternity!

It went on easily and quickly with a stain brush - and looked great. Prior surface was well prepared; pressure washed, cleaned with behr all in 1 wood cleaner and fully dry. Applied late fall and less than 6 months later it all needs to be redone. While the initial result looked good - and it was easy to apply - I wont use this product again as it hasn't held up at all.

Put it on last spring (writing this in 2017, so I applied it in 2016) and come this spring the deck looks terrible. It's Peeling, chipping, the color is faded; absolutely no durability. I put it on a porch that doesn't get as much sun the year before (so, 2015), and that's now chipping and peeling as well, so it didn't make it 2 years even when out of the sun and rain. This went down on pressure treated lumber. The wood dried for almost 12 months and was then cleaned thoroughly and prepped for staining. With the way this product has performed, at this point I wish I left the deck and porch untreated rather than putting this garbage on there. Do yourself a favor and look for a different product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Short lived... Worst Thompsons product ever. New deck, professionally built, cleaned, and dried. THREE coats of Thompsons and I was in love with the natural color and ease of application. As of today I have had to pay someone to pressure wash and sand down the few tiny bits left on the surface. The deck is 1 year old as of last week and this product has been completely gone for over 3 months. Will spend my July 4th weekend using a step ladder into the pool while they finish resurfacing my decking. Nothing on the deck but feet, no furniture to scratch either. Just seasonal foot traffic. I've literally had nail polish last longer. And our winters are mild here I Texas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great color Repels water. Perfect color once is dries. Goes on with a mauve tint, once dried looked just like picture on can. We used magnum sprayer. 5 gallon covered approx 12 panels wood fence. Glad I chose this stain. For the price it's a good choice.

After a no-so bad winter, didn't stand up well at all. Hence, re-staining my deck this year, when I should've gotten several years out of it. Very disappointing from such a recognized name-brand.
