    Q:I want to Stain my wood Privacy fence. The fence was put up 6 weeks. What is the suggested process?

    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi Jock, thank you for your question. To prepare your surface, we recommend cleaning the fence with our All-In-One Wood Cleaner. This will work to clean your surface and prepare your wood pores so that the stain can properly adhere. Once dry, apply two coats at the recommended spread rate. Best of luck with your project! -Lina

      A:  Hi Bill, thank you for your question. Our Solid Color Waterproofing Stain & Sealer can resist rain and moisture after 4 hours. However, we recommend allowing the coating to fully cure (72 hours) before washing and cleaning the surface. Best of luck with your project! -Lina

        Q:My deck has an older red stain on it, I?ve just had it pressure washed and some came off but in one area it is still on. Is this stain okay to put on top of that or will I need to do a paint remover first? I?d like to find something I can just put on top

        Answer This Question

        A:  Hi Elizabeth, thanks for the question. As long as the existing stain is in sound condition and not peeling, you can apply our Solid-Color Waterproofing Stain & Sealer over it. Before applying the stain, it's recommended to clean the surface first with our All-In-One Wood Cleaner. Have a great day! -Ronald

          Peeling after 1 year
          Product claims to be good for 6 years on horizontal surfaces, our hand rail which sees zero use started peeling after 1 year and now at 2 years there are several spots that are peeling up. Will need to refinish. Complete waist of time and money, will NOT recommend to anyone. Also this product is not semi-transparent, can not see the actual wood at all, essentially just painted it all which was not desired.

          Hi user, thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that the coating peeled so soon. This is not normal, and I understand your disappointment. I recommend removing the coating, cleaning the surface with the All-In-One Wood Cleaner, and touching up or recoating as needed. We recommend two coats at the recommended spread rate for a semi-transparent finish. Customer satisfaction is important to us, and we appreciate your feedback. Please reach out to us directly if you need further assistance; our customer care team is happy to help you! -Giovanna Behr
            Good Coverage / Shows Dirt
            We just applied this to our deck a couple weeks ago, so we cannot attest to the longevity of the product yet. But it applied nicely, evenly and looks great. It rained a bit a few days after application and it held up great. It has also held up nicely to our patio furniture- no scratching or anything when you move a chair on the surface. The biggest disappointment is how obvious dirt is on this color. Consider a different color if you have dirt areas in your yard or pets.

              Applied this to our pergola which was originally stained with a semi-transparent stain. Since we couldn’t get any info on what was used for the original stain we went back and forth on different brands and colors. We are very happy with the way this stain worked out for our project. We did not strip or sand the wood before staining, just brush cleaned the entire pergola before applying. Our pergola is redwood and while the color sample of the stain may not have matched the the actual application or the previous stain, we loved the way it came out. You can see before and after boards in the image provided. We applied a single coat -and pretty thickly to make sure we got the stain into all of the crevices.

              This product is great! The russet color was the perfect choice not to red. I applied it with a brush and roller.

              Disappointed in this stain
              Yes, the deck was properly cleaned and prepped for the stain. We applied the stain in October 2021. It is peeling up like crazy just after the snow melted in March 2022. Extremely disappointed that all that hard work was for nothing, and the deck looks worse than before we stained it.

              Hi Mary, thanks for the review. Sorry to hear that the stain is starting to peel off like crazy. This is not typical, and I can understand your disappointment. I recommend removing the loose coating, by sanding or pressure washing at a low level, and cleaning the surface with our All-In-One Wood Cleaner before reapplying the stain. Customer satisfaction is important to us, and we appreciate your feedback. Please reach out to us directly if you need further assistance; our customer care team is happy to help you! -Ronald Behr
                Disappointed also
                We also used Behr Russet solid color deck stain on our deck. Had it applied by a professional contractor last October, 2021 during a stretch of many dry days. Well, It is peeling already this spring. How very disappointing! The stain is peeling up in large chunks! Add us to the list of unhappy customers.

                Hi UnhappyBehrcustomer. Thank you for your review. I’m so sorry our solid stain is peeling on your deck in large chunks. Since it sounds like the peeling is widespread across your deck, I recommend removing the stain by sanding it off or using our Wood Stain & Finish Stripper, cleaning the wood with our All-In-One Wood Cleaner, letting the surface dry, then reapplying the stain. Customer satisfaction is important to us, and we appreciate your feedback. Please feel free to reach out to our Customer Care team directly for further assistance. Our team is happy to help you! -Joni Behr
                  Great coverage for the price
