Where to UseBlank space if empty.

Recommended for smooth or rough sawn exterior vertical wood surfaces such as: Plywood, Fences, Patio Covers, Shingles, Shakes, Siding, Laminates, Barns and Masonry & Stucco Surfaces.

Usage SummaryBlank space if empty.
PreparationBlank space if empty.

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.
ApplicationBlank space if empty.
  • Must apply between 40-90˚F (4.5-32˚C). Do not use if rain is expected within 24 hours. The wood surface must be completely dry before application.
  • No primer needed on most woods. However, Redwood, Cedar, Cypress and other “bleeding” woods contain water soluble extractives which may cause discoloration of white and pastel colors; therefore prime the above type woods with one coat of a product such as BEHR PREMIUM PLUS® NO. 436 Exterior Multi-Purpose Primer & Sealer.
  • See label for additional instructions. Intermix multiple containers to ensure color uniformity
  • Apply with a nylon/polyester brush. On rough-sawn or textured wood apply with a 3/4” (19 mm) long nap roller or high quality airless sprayer.
  • For airless spraying use a .015 - .019" tip. Pump Sprayer not recommended. Always back-brush or back-roll during all application methods.
  • Keep a wet edge to reduce lapping and help control color uniformity.
  • Over application of stain will lead to surface failure including peeling and cracking. Avoid applying stain too heavily.
  • Two coats may be necessary for complete hiding. Apply a thinner second coat after the first coat has thoroughly dried.
DisposalBlank space if empty.
  • For disposal of empty containers and unused product, contact your household refuse collection service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great COverage/Color We are Painting/staining a 20 year old plus Pole Barn that needed some refreshing up and this was just the Stain we needed to use. I Love how it covers and the color is fantastic!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable, easy and has not faded in color. We painted my mom's fence, one side of yard. Then some health issues popped up so almost a year later we started to finish the fence in rest of yard. We were amazed at the new paint looked like the first . No fading, looked like we recently painted it. I really thought I would be painting it all again. We are amazed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality at a great price! Behr has improved their deep bases and other mixes to allow for perfect color matching. I've been using their products for years and find them easy to use and comparable to products costing more in the marketplace.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful coverage and durability Our garage went from blah to beautiful in a weekend thanks to Behr Solid Color House & Wood Stain in Gettysburg (SC-113) and Ultra Pure White (SC-210). We did not use primer, however we did power wash and let the surface dry completely before application. With only one coat, three years later the stain has held up beautifully on our wood clapboard siding and wood trim with no fading, cracking, color change, and has resisted dirt and mildew. Additionally, one coat was enough for complete coverage, all while filling cracks and other imperfections in the wood. We couldn't be happier!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A little goes along way This is an awesome product. When using it does not splash off roller/brush I can't believe how much a half gallon will cover I love all Behr products that I have used at my current address for the past 22 years!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! Great Coverage! We just had a new fence installed and very pleased with the house and fence wood stain! We hand painted the fence and the coverage from 1 gallon is unbelieveable! I would highly recommend this product to everyone! Plus, Behr's guarantee is awesome and they do back their product 100%!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is second time using this product - LOVE it! Currently using this to restrain our entire house and three decks. We used it when we first bought the home 12+ years ago and it lasted beautifully. We have one side of the house and one deck to go (but this heat, ugh!) and it’ll be good to go for another 12+ years (and we could have gone much longer we just felt it’s good to reseal the wood on such an old home). It tinted very well, it’s very easy to use, and cleanup is easy. Highly recommend this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stains last over 10 years I first purchase this product to stain my fence in 2000. I used the clear stain. My fence looked new up until now 2020. My neighbor asked what I was doing and I told him I stained it with Behr fence stain. During the time I power washed it one time. I just got a new fence dur to wear and tear of weather and staining it again with the Behr products This is a great product that last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mrs. We have been using BEHR paint and stain for over 35 years. It is the only interior paint that I use. Our wood siding house has ALWAYS been covered by BEHR opaque stain, and in all these years we have NEVER had to scrape or sand. It never flakes or peels. In addition we painted our fencing and now all of our chicken coops with BEHR barn red stain. We use this product 100% of the time on all of our home projects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One coat coverage. I bought this product six months ago to paint my fence and was very happy with the results. I purchased another gallon of it to paint some landscape timbers in a landscape I just finished. I watered it down so that I could use it in my paint sprayer. Even after it was watered down, the color and finish matched the fence.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Product I stained my 800sqft deck and 300ft, both sides of fencing last month. I could not be happier with the stain. It went on smoothly and covered every nook and cranny on my weathered wood. Only needed one coat! Backyard looks brand new, never looked better and it was reasonably priced. I strongly recommend this product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Finished Look and Coverage I'm a handyman for my local HOA (700 homes) and they spec a paint competitor's solid color for the wood fences; HD matches the color. Using my airless, I've probably sprayed 200 gallons over the past two years and the fences still look great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Finish I painted several raised garden beds with solid stain in the color Pewter. Not only do they look beautiful, I love how thoroughly the stain covered the wood. The stain really smoother over the rough wood and I’m hopeful that it will preserve it for several years!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finished to Perfection I bought the Behr Solid Color House Wood Stain this month and this is the only product I will use on the exterior of my house. It has been quite a few year since repainting the exterior (I used Behr Solid Color House Wood Stain then). Time to repaint and I had no doubt of what brand I would use. Thank you for a fantastic product Behr.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent coverage! Our fence had dark areas of weathering and a normal stain did nothing. We bought a 5 gallon bucket of Behr and were amazed that it fully covered ALL weathering and imperfections to one solid smooth color. I’ll never buy anything else again! See before and after!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lasts exceptionally long! After having used another leading brand and having to redo it every two years the Behr stain was a pleasent difference. It has lasted over five years and still looks new. I receive many complements on the color. The stain saves time and effort and best of all protects the wood beautifully.
