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.

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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great and trusted product I bought 5 gallons of this Spring 2019 to do my deck. I bought the house 3 years ago and don't know if it had ever been stained. After it was done, the water just beaded up when it rained. Wen't on very smoothly and looks great. I would definitely recommend this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best I have found Best I have found. I left one patch for 6 months just to really see how good it held up to weather and sun. Only one coat. Unbelievable, the real deal and one coat is all I used for the test. Weather gets cooler the rest is going on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Behr Wood Stain I used Behr Wood Stain on my log home for the second time...the info on the can said the more you use Behr Wood Stain, you won't need to stain as often...That is a true statement. I applied 27 gallons to my log home and detached garage this year. The first application was 3 years ago. It goes on easy and covers on nicely. The stain I used before would only last about 2 years before reapplication. Living in Western Wyoming the weather can be harsh... 25-35 degrees below zero in the winter with lots of snow. A hot day in the summer is about 85 degrees...(well it's hot to us) Lots of sun beats down on the logs on the south side during the spring, winter and fall...and Behr Stain stands up to the weather test. I will only use Behn Stain from now on. I'm sold on Behr Stain...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased. We had a new floor put down on our porch. Used #63 cleaner for prep and then applied the stain. Easy application of two coats as recommended. Color was spot on after 2nd coat. Dried evenly, nice wood grain showing thru the color. Easy cleanup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superior Weather Protection BEHR® DECKplus™ Semi-Transparent Waterproofing Wood Stain has given us a beautiful weatherproof protective coat for our older deck. By following the instructions, we achieved exactly what we had hoped for in renewing the finish of our deck surface. Applying the stain was easy with a stain brush and long handle. We will use this product again, when the finish wears... which should be several years! Great product. Great results!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great versatile wood treatment Purchased to apply a pickled finish look on my picket fence. Pros: Looks good and easy to apply with brush or sprayer. Quick dry and easy water clean up. Also can be tinted or colored in store to create a multitude of finished looks. Cons: dries really fast, so have wet rag or sponge handy for cleanup of overspray and little mistakes. Also Clean tools and equipment quickly after use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good Used this on our deck about a month ago In Northern Illinois. Applied in early July. Looks great for now & I'm getting compliments. Planning to use more on a larger deck. Color is "woodchip" (tried to crop myself out a bit). The stain is VERY liquidy. Splashes a good amount when pouring - I wound up using a swimming squirt stick to suck out paint from a 5 gal bucket & put in a tray. Covered pretty well and blended the 2 new boards in with the old boards a good amount. I'm definitely a novice when it comes to stain. I did struggle a good amount with it drying too quickly - even on an overcast day! Hoping it'll stand up and last well over winter!! *crossing my fingers*

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coverage, good finished look I purchased 12 gallons to cover our 20 year old deck after trying samples. The Behr Deck Plus Wood Stain covered better than any stain I have ever used. After the first coat, I considered not doing a second coat because it looked so good on old wood. I did do a second coat and I am glad I did. It looks so wonderful we added alot of life to our deck. It does a great job of waterproofing and water beads up on the deck. It works great. I would highly recommend using this product and I would absolutely purchase it again. JC Lakewood, CO

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for new and old decks! We stained part of an old deck (15 years old) and a new section that we just added on. Other than a slight color difference, this product worked phenomenal on both sections! We've have several (heavy) rains since application a couple of months ago and everything still looks great! Love BEHR products!
