We had a very weathered yet solid wood fence that had been neglected several years before we purchased the place. The Behr solid stain was the perfect choice. It has excellent coverage, easy application. Highly recommend.

Does not last
It did not last even one season in Wisconsin. Absorbs water and peels off. 2 coats after sanding, pressure washing... still not efficient exterior stain/sealer.

Hello Krisna, thank you for your review. I’m so sorry the stain is peeling so soon. I recommend removing any loose coating, cleaning the surface with our All-In-One Wood Cleaner to clean the surface and open the pores of the bare wood to allow the stain to grip onto the surface, letting the surface dry, then touching up and recoating as needed. 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

This color is beautiful and the stain was easy to apply, however I should have listened to the other reviews. I did everything I was supposed to: used the deck cleaner and brush, waited until the wood had been dry for a long stretch, low humidity, low wind, mild temps, no direct sunlight. Sadly, this is still coming off of my porch and it has only been on there for 7 months. I know it isn't from shoveling or salt as it is only in the areas we walk, not the entire surface. I have contacted Behr customer service to see if they will honor their warranty, but don't make my mistake! It isn't worth trying it for yourself, the reviews are right.

Expected it to finish darker, although my decking is very pale. I was surprised that the can suggests only one coat which makes me think it's less stain/more paint. My deck was very dry and the product absorbed well, and dried to the touch quickly. It says three days for full cure, but I felt it was no longer tacky within a day. I still waited three days before putting the furniture on it. It dries with the slightest shine that makes everything looks clean and new. Time will tell if it holds up. It's been on for two weeks so far. I bought this color on line since none of the local stores had it. It took three weeks to deliver which was frustrating so plan far ahead of this is your option.

Not even one year
Not impressed with this stain at all, less than one year and the stain is peeling off the deck. Before application I sanded and used the behr all-in-one wood cleaner, applied two coats with adequate drying time between each coat. If you have moderate traffic on your deck, this may not withstand more than one year.

Hi asg1,

Thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that your deck is peeling after less than a year! To fix, we recommend sanding the areas that are lifting, spot cleaning the bare concrete with our wood cleaner, then touching up with more stain. If this is happening to most of the surface though, we recommend removing the stain completely before preparing the surface and applying 2 new coats. So we can assist you further with this, please reach out to our Customer Care team directly. We hope to hear from you! - Sara Behr

I bought it in the 5-gallon version with texture added applied with brush was hoping to use a sprayer so I bought one gallon with no texture so I could spray the cracks and other features I couldn't reach with the roller really like the product and the texture adds a lot to the deck
