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 Summary
Preparation

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.
Disposal
  • For disposal of empty containers and unused product, contact your household refuse collection service.
Application
  • Must apply between 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 discolouration of white and pastel colours; 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 colour uniformity
  • Apply with a nylon/polyester brush. Use a 10 mm nap roller for smooth/semi-smooth surfaces. On rough-sawn or textured wood apply with a 19 mm long nap roller or high quality airless sprayer.
  • For airless spraying use For airless spraying use a .38 mm - .48 mm (.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 colour 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.

BEHR® Solid Colour House & Fence Wood Stain is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 110.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Victorian porch railing I decided to use Behr solid stain on my new Victorian home's porch railing and spindles that was not treated in any way. Fresh wood hand crafted by Amish. Behr solid stain went on easily with no dripping, dried nicely, and lasted without fading or chipping for 10 years. I was completely thrilled. I am now going to use Behr solid stain for new trim on my Victorian house windows. Without a doubt, I am sold on this exterior solid stain.
