(The following steps and products are recommended for best results.)

  • Use a product such as BEHR PREMIUM® NO. 64 Wood Stain & Finish Stripper to remove loose wood fibers, latex, oil-based and 100% acrylic coatings on new or weathered wood.
  • BEHR PREMIUM® NO. 63 All-In-One Wood Cleaner MUST be used following NO. 64 to clean, brighten & neutralize wood.
  • When NO. 64 is not needed, use a product such as NO. 63 to clean and brighten the wood surface and to remove light to medium exterior stains caused by mold, mildew, algae & fungus. Rinse thoroughly and allow to dry before coating.
  • On new wood, use a product such as NO. 63 to remove mill glaze and open the pores of the wood. Lightly sand to remove remaining wood fibers/fuzz.


(For best results, a pad applicator is recommended over large areas.)

  • Must apply between 5-32˚C. Do not use if rain is expected within 24 hours. The wood surface must be completely dry before application.
  • Intermix multiple containers to ensure colour uniformity. DO NOT THIN PRODUCT. Stir product occasionally throughout application. Test product for penetration and colour on a small hidden area before proceeding.
  • Use a nylon/polyester brush for areas requiring more accuracy. Use of rollers should be limited to rough surfaces only.
  • Use 10 mm nap or longer when appropriate. A high quality pump sprayer with a variable tip or an airless sprayer with a .38 mm - .48 mm (.015 - .019") tip may be used.
  • Work in small sections lightly saturating the surface and immediately back-brush or use pad applicator to eliminate puddling, remove excess and evenly distribute the stain.
  • Maintain a wet edge when applying. Apply product end-to-end or to board lengths to prevent lap marks.
  • Over application of stain will lead to surface failure including peeling and cracking.
  • Avoid applying stain too heavily. Two thin coats required.
  • For optimum performance, coat all six sides of wood.

Dry Time

  • 1-2 hours before recoat. Allow 72 hours for full cure.


  • For disposal of empty containers and unused product, contact your household refuse collection service.
