Usage SummaryBlank space if empty.
PreparationBlank space if empty.

The following steps 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.

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

  • 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.
  • Intermix multiple containers to ensure color uniformity. DO NOT THIN PRODUCT. Stir product occasionally throughout application. Test product for penetration and color 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 3/8” nap or longer when appropriate. A high quality pump sprayer with a variable tip or an airless sprayer with a .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. For optimum performance, coat all six sides of wood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Behr is the BEST Used this product twice now to finish fencing and multiple decks off the back of the house and around the pool. Color was as advertised and the product covered beautifully even on the first coat on new wood. The first application actually laster more than 5 years, which is why we chose Behr again for refinishing. I would highly recommend this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy application! I've used the Behr solid wood stain on fencing before with good results. We wanted to go for a different look with our new privacy fence, so we got the semi-transparent stain. It sprays on easily with our Wagner power sprayer. Looks good so far, can't wait to see the finished product.
