Why Acrylic Water Based Deck Stains Do Not Work Very Well

A major factor in maintaining a deck is keeping the wood protected. A good weather resistant deck stain should be applied to the wood every couple of years to protect it from weather damage. A quality deck stain will not only protect your deck from weather, it will enhance its beauty and keep it looking good for years to come.

BEHR Premium 2-In-1 Deck CleanerBEHR Premium 2-In-1 Deck Cleaner is a cleaner specifically formulated to clean and brighten wood surfaces as well as remove mildew stains.

BEHR Premium 2-In-1 Deck Cleaner Scores (1-10)

Removal of Graying, Dirt, Grime: 5

– The BEHR Premium 2-In-1 Deck Cleaner did a poor job at cleaning and removing the graying. The cleaner did not remove ay of the mold or mildew from the wood. It did lighten the color of the wood slightly. On inspection of the contents, it was determined that this product is more of a wood brightener than a wood cleaner. Contains oxalic acid and a soap additive.

Cost Per Square Foot: 7

– Cheap for a liquid deck cleaner but since it does not work very well we could not give it a high rating here.

Removal of Graying, Dirt, Grime: 7

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.

Behr Deck Stain Review

BEHR’s Premium semi-transparent wood stain offers a 100% acrylic formula that penetrates into the wood to deliver complete protection from the elements on decks, fences, and siding. The silicone-fortified formula protects from the sun’s harmful UV rays. Behr’s Premium Semi-Transparent Wood Stain is available in 83 custom colors allowing the natural wood grain to show through.

Behr Wood Deck Stain Scores (1-10)

Appearance After Initial Stain Application: 2

– Behr’s Premium Deck Stain is a 100% acrylic stain which means it is a water based product. We found that the stain does not penetrate into the wood as promised in its description. The product had the look of a semi-solid stain, not a semi-transparent stain. 80-90% of the wood grain was masked by the heavy pigment. A good way to describe the finished appearance is to compare Behr Deck Stain to a watered down paint. The Cedar color we choose was much darker/redder than other brands.

Preventing UV Graying at 2 Year Mark: 8

– Behr Deck Stain performed well in the areas where the stain was still on the surface of the deck after the 2 years of testing.

Wear/Tear and Peeling: 1

– The worst that we have ever tested! The Behr Deck Stain had peeled on 80% of the decking surface. This stain seemed to offer little to no protection on the flooring after the 2 years. The railings did hold up much better.
