Behr Premium Stain and Finisher Stripper Scores (1-10)
Removal of Graying, Dirt, Grime: 7
– Behr Stain Stripper removes general dirt and graying with relative ease. The deep penetration of the stripper softens the dirt and grime so it can easily be rinsed from the wood.
Cost Per Square Foot: 6
– The cost to use the Behr Stripper was high in our opinion since it did not work to remove the wood stain from the deck.
Removal of Old Stain: 3
– We used the Behr Stain Stripper to remove a failed, peeling coat of Behr Semi-Transparent Stain. The stripper did little for removal as maybe 50% of the stain on the flooring came off. The stripper had little to no effect on removing the finish from the vertical railings.
Ease of Application: 7
– The Behr Stain Stripper was applied with a garden pump sprayer to the deck surface. We had a few issues with the sprayer clogging otherwise there was no issue with the application.
Final Appearance of Stripping: 3
– Poor! Barely removed the Behr Stain. We would ask for a refund.
– The Behr Stain remover did a poor job removing the Behr Acrylic Deck Stain. We asked the manager at Home Depot and he suggested stripping the deck numerous times until it finally came off. We would not suggest this product.
