Pumpkin Orange
I really should have read the reviews prior to purchase. Natural Cedar sounded great to me in the store. after applying it I was appalled at how orange the color is. It is actually quite revulsive. Girlfriend thinks it looks like pumpkin vomit. Very disappointed. Hopefully it will protect the deck and the color will fade over time.

Hi Ryan, thank you for your review. I’m sorry to hear that the color didn’t turn out as expected. Although the color of the wood can affect how the final color will turn out, it isn't typical for the color to come out that orange. The deck will still be protected, and the color may fade over time. Customer satisfaction is important to us, and we appreciate your feedback.

    Hi Y Gent. Thank you for your review. I'm so sorry to hear you didn't like the color. I recommend letting the stain cure for 24-72 hours, cleaning with our All-In-One Wood Cleaner, letting the surface dry, then reapplying the stain in a new color that's closer to what you want. You can test it in a small area first to be sure it looks just right for your project. Customer satisfaction is very 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

    Absolutely Horrible
    Prepped the deck as recommended. Power washed, sanded, applied 3 coats of the stain and in 60 degree weather.. dried for 2 full days. On the third day it was raining out- the entire deck suddenly had splotches. The color dripping off everywhere after spending a full day staining and a lot of money of 6 cans I am NOT happy.

    Hi Ryan, thank you for your review. Sorry to hear that two days after applying the stain it rained and left splotches and color was dripping everywhere. I'd recommend you let the deck dry for about a week and see if the finish evens out. If not, then clean the surface with our All-In-One Wood Cleaner and apply another coat of stain.

      DO NOT BUY ORANGE PUMPKIN ORANGE!!!
      How many orange reviews do people have to leave before you Behr fixed the formula!?! I mean no one on here wants to spend the money or time to clean with your all in one cleaner and spend more money on stain!

        I hope you like orange!
        Dang I’m kicking myself for not reading the reviews first!!!!!!!!!! So ORANGE! My favorite color is orange and this color orange on my entire deck is AWFUL! I wish I hadn’t already bought 3 gallons worth! I am so hoping it’ll fade! Don’t do it. I attached some photos of my OrAnGe deck! Pray for fade. Go Broncos I guess.

        Hi Jojo - Thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that this color turned out more orange than expected! To start, I recommend making sure the color was mixed correctly by comparing the paper swatch for this color to the dried stain dab on the lid of your cans. If they match up, the color is correct, and I recommend applying a thin third coat in a different color to your deck. You may also want to pick up an 8 oz. sample of your new color to apply in a test area to ensure you're happy with the color. If the dried stain dab and physical swatch don't match up, the color may have been mixed incorrectly, and it's best to apply a new coat in the correct color. We'd like to help you with this further as well so you can enjoy your deck. Please feel free to reach out to us directly at your convenience. We hope to hear from you! - Sara Behr
          The ugliest color you can ever buy
          We recently changed our 350 sqf fence and wanted a real cedar tone color. This is so orange I don't think anyone on this planet wants an orange fence or deck. We spent $500 on paint and its all garbage now. Trust me in real is much brighter than the picture.

            AWFUL ORANGE!! DO NOT BUY!!!
            Let me start by saying that I rarely leave reviews, typically only if a product is really good or really bad. I am so disappointed with this stain!! I stained our first deck a few years ago with this same stain and it was fine. I just built my home 5 years ago so it's been less than 5 years since the first deck was done. The color is "NaturalTone Cedar." I saved the can and took pictures of the finished product so I would buy the same color when we built our new decks, and now I wish I hadn't. I bought a 5 gallon bucket, plus two, 1-gallon containers, to stain our two new decks (so I can't attribute the awful color to it being mixed incorrectly, plus it was premixed anyway.) All 3 containers were visually the same color but I mixed it all together with a paint mixer for continuity. The first one is a 50x8 deck that is part of a wrap around, and the second part is about 28x12. The decks are 12 months old and were properly prepped for stain (it's not my first rodeo.) We have another that we are working on finishing, so I wanted to make sure we had enough stain for all of it. I can't express how awful this color is. It reminds me of circus peanuts. The worst part is, when the sun is shining, it emits a horrible orange glow all through my house. I am a single parent and my finances are tight. I spent $300 for this stain and it was a total waste of money. I really can't afford to remove this stain and then buy more to replace it. I was hoping once it weathered a little that the bright orange glow would go away, but it hasn't. It just looks awful. I feel like BEHR really should reimburse for this because no one in their right mind would want their decks, fences, etc., stained this color. Our home has typical tan/brown/clay colored vinyl siding and I included a photo you you can see the color between the siding and the deck without sunlight on it. The lighting really makes no difference. Please don't buy this unless you like the color of neon circus peanuts. I've included photos with this review (which really doesn't do the bright orange color any justice) so you can see that I'm not exaggerating. I had hoped that once it weathered a bit, the bright orange glow would go away, but it has not, it still looks like carrots. Very disappointing.

              Buyer be ware ... This stuff is ORANGE ... Inface HD ORANGE!!! I had used this product a few years ago and wanted to stain a new section of fence that was replaced. BEHR obviously changed the formula to this very Bright Orange instead of a more redish/light orange Cedar color. I let it dry for a few days to see if I could live with the color. In the sunlight it shows even brighter!!! Too much orange ... I will spray light oil-based top coat deck/fence stain to tone it down some. It is a good stain just not the bright orange color. Go back to the original formula!!!

              Stripped the kids’ cedar playground with a pressure washer, rolled and brushed on 1 Gal. White Acrylic Interior/Exterior Multi-Surface Stain-Blocking Primer and Sealer. Last was 2 Gal/coats Cedar Naturaltone Solid Color Waterproofing Exterior Wood Stain and Sealer. Used a Wagner stain sprayer ($60) to apply the stain and it came out perfect! Would have been easier to use a paint sprayer instead of roller for the primer but still came out perfect.

              The Color Formula Has Changed
              You guys changed the formula for the color of this stain. This is the 3rd time I’ve purchased it and noticed immediately the color was different. As several of your other customers, I though it would darken but after a week of painting it hasn’t, so I looked it up on your website and found other complaints. I also noticed your company hasn’t admitted liability for this issue; that’s very troubling. Now I need to decide if I’m going to repaint and hope my neighbors don’t complain to our HOA about the bright orange color.

              Hello Chuck, thank you for sharing your feedback. We're sorry to hear your stain's finishing color didn't turn out as expected. To verify that your color was mixed correctly, we’d suggest checking that the physical swatch matches the dab on your cans lid. If the colors match, the stain was properly mixed, and the color is correct. In cases like this, the best solution would be to recoat in a different color. If the swatch doesn’t match the dab on your can’s lid, the color was incorrectly mixed, and we’d suggest recoating with new stain tinted to the correct color. Please keep in mind that different lighting will affect how a color looks and that our online color palette display may vary slightly from the actual colors due to variances in monitor settings. Also note that we offer three different cedar shades in our solid stain palette, Cedar Naturaltone SC-533, Cedar SC-146, and Red Cedar SC-152. Customer satisfaction is important to us. Please feel free to contact our Customer Care team directly with any questions you may have or for further assistance. Have a great rest of your day. –Joanna Behr
