I have used this product tinted Cordovan Brown over two summers 2012/2013 and found it to be excellent in coverage and weathering.  The drying time does vary depending on the application surface.  It dries quickly - overnight - on porous surfaces, but takes 2 days or more if the surface has old solid smooth stain on it or if the wood is hard and smooth, probably due to the fact that it can't soak into the old stained solid or smooth wood surfaces.  Although this is 'Deck Stain' , and the instructions say it not intended for use on siding, it works great on Wood Cedar Shingles as well, giving excellent coverage and protection, with superior weathering - no signs of chalking after one year on Decks, Rails, or Shingles.

I live in Maui and have a very large wood deck that was once stained with regular semi transparent stain. Over the years it was apparent that the wood needed to be protected better. That is when I started buying Cabot solid color decking stains. It seems at first it held up pretty well. Now, the last batch, started to bubble on most of the hot afternoons. They say it "moisture" in the wood. I have left it out for a month before painting and the last time my project entailed stripping it almost to bare wood by a large wire circular sander, power washer and hand belt sander. Then completely primed the whole surface again and let dry. Now, once painted with once coat in moderate heat of around 80+ the bubble are starting to show again? Why is this? Is the paint not designed to reach temperatures in the 80 to 100 range on the wood so it cooks like an egg and bubbles because of the acrylic?

I'm a professional

By Amy Jo

from Kenosha, WI, United States

Comments about Cabot 1 Gallon Solid Color Decking Stain, Opaque (01-1801):

I'm just checking on some cleaning products and saw the bad review by the guy who probably didn't prep the surface before using it and thought I'd let you know what the professionals think. We use Cabot for all of our natural wood stain colors and I can say the coverage is phenomenal and in the 20 years we've been using it not once have we had a problem with unusual fading or peeling.

Awesome product

By thefireguy

from West Valley City, UT, United States

Comments about Cabot 1 Gallon Solid Color Decking Stain, Opaque (01-1801):

I refinished my 22 year old deck.. floors, pickets, rails, roof, floor joists, posts.... EVERYTHING 4-1/2 years ago using the solid color acrylic deck stain 1806 series. 2 coats of stain to insure adequate coverage. As with any refinish project, the key is surface preparation and cleaning... sanded to bare wood, sanded out any rot or degrading, then pressure washed with HOT water and soap with a heavy hot water rinse, both to clean the surfaces of dust etc, and to open the grain of the wood to allow maximum penetration and adhesion. I let it dry for 48 hours and applied 1st coat of stain. Let dry overnight and applied 2nd coat. This deck looked as if it was just refinished for the last 4 years... this last winter it started to peel slightly in the highest exposed areas. This highly exceeded my expectations for any application let alone refinishing a 22 year old deck! Picking up a few gallons today for another refinish! Thank you Cabot for an awesome product

Excellent results

By Phil in Rochester

from Rochester Hills, MI, United States

Comments about Cabot 1 Gallon Solid Color Decking Stain, Opaque (01-1801):

Our 25 year old Mahogany needs good protection, our contractor used and recommended Penofin so we followed suit for many years. Another contractor made repairs and sanded about 6 years ago and recommended Siekens which we immediately did not care for. The Penofin was far too oily and the Siekens too shiny/waxy. This year the Internet said Mahogany likes Cabot and they were very right! We chose the Timber Oil and we (and the mahogany) love it! Wish I'd been using it for years!

Deck was stained with this product and after 1 year, it is pealing off the deck flooring and railing. I expected the stain to last 2-3 years.

Waste of Time / Money

By kkpb

from Minnesota, United States

Comments about Cabot 1 Gallon Solid Color Decking Stain, Opaque (01-1801):

Stained my deck last summer and it is already worn and peeling. Stained both old and new boards and both are in terrible shape. Huge waste of my time and money as I now have to redo 500 square feet of decking after less than a year!

Wasted time

By SL10

from Illinois, United States

Comments about Cabot 1 Gallon Solid Color Decking Stain, Opaque (01-1801):

I spent days prepping our deck to be stained and chose the Cabot solid color deck stain because of its advertised durability. Within less than a year, the stain had chipped extensively on the floorboards and to a lesser extent on the rails. I would not recommend this product at all. It was a huge disappointment and a waste of time and money.

Looked AMAZING... at first...

By Sfoster31211

from Freeland, MI

Comments about Cabot 1 Gallon Solid Color Decking Stain, Opaque (01-1801):

Stained my deck at the end of August, early September, initially the deck looked amazing!!! We were so happy for the moment. Winter came, we didn't use the deck much, no salt was used on it. Snow melted and the deck looks terrible. Paint is chipped and pealing, didn't even get a year out of it. I'd upload pictures but the website works as well as the stain.

Didn't live up to the manufacturers claims

By Schuberc

from Wisconsin Rapids, WI, United States

Comments about Cabot 1 Gallon Solid Color Decking Stain, Opaque (01-1801):

We bought this product in the hopes it would reduce maintenance on our decks. We expected it to last 2-3 years as advertised. We followed the manufacturers instructions for preparing and for the application. The product went on easy enough and seemed to cover well. But, it has been less than a year and there is significant peeling and wear even in low traffic areas such as our back deck. Really at a loss as what to do next. To me this wasn't a stain, it was a paint and it failed.

Sold on Cabot

By Garrett

Comments about Cabot 1 Gallon Solid Color Decking Stain, Opaque (01-1801):

I am replacing my patio deck an will once again use Cabot acrylic primer and solid stain.... so that the deck will match the trim color of the house. This is the second deck replacement in 27 years. All stained with Cabot. (Texas sun deteriorates the pressure treated wood but not the stain.) I've never had issues with chalking, peeling, traffic wear.

Comments about Cabot 1 Gallon Solid Color Decking Stain, Opaque (01-1801):

I used this deck stain one year ago after washing down with deck wash. Looked wonderful. However both front and back deck and porch have peeling. Some peeling is not where anyone walks. Stains easily. Have washed it down with soap and water and sometimes just with water. I will have to do something to it before winter.

Comments about Cabot 1 Gallon Solid Color Decking Stain, Opaque (01-1801):

We have always used cabot stain for our home, (20 years). Typically we have to stain every 5 to 8 years. We have never had an issue with peeling but after staining our home 4 years ago it is peeling very badly. We would like to speak with someone concerning this problem. Thanks.

Very disappointed!

By tiffany118

from New Jersey, United States

Comments about Cabot 1 Gallon Solid Color Decking Stain, Opaque (01-1801):

I don't normally write reviews but am so disappointed with this, I had to share. I had my deck painted a solid Mission Brown a month ago. My dog uses the deck to get into the house and she tracks dirt on it with her. I cannot get the dirt off at all. I hoped a good rain or using a hard spray on the hose would do it but it didn't . So I purchased a fringe mop and used some deck wash and it still did not come off. It looks horrible now and is getting worse. The attached picture shows two boards that were just replaced and repainted today vs. ones that have been walked on for a month.

Disappointed with this product

By TDKay

from Fenton MI

Comments about Cabot 1 Gallon Solid Color Decking Stain, Opaque (01-1801):

Last year we spent a week staining our wood fence and deck with your product. We used a solid color stain on both. We used a powerwasher to clean all surfaces before staining. Looked great initially, however after a year we are noticing peeling on the fence. We thought the stain would hold up for longer than one year. We stained in July of 2014 and had a very cold winter. Not happy with what we are seeing this year.

fading and peeling

By DonF

from West Springfield, Massachusetts

Comments about Cabot 1 Gallon Solid Color Decking Stain, Opaque (01-1801):

I have stained 24 decks for our condo's three years ago. Well now all 24 are peeling and badly faded. They were cleaned thoroughly and were dry and I only stained on days where the temperature was under 80. degrees. Now we have to scrape and prep all 24 decks and re-stain them. All our condo owners are very upset with Cabot because of the cost to re-do all 24 decks and railings and stairs. Cabot stain used to be good when it was thin as water and soaked into the wood, but this new formula isn't worth the time it takes to apply it, much less the high cost.

Not Happy.

By gene55

from St John, IN, United States

Comments about Cabot 1 Gallon Solid Color Decking Stain, Opaque (01-1801):

Deck was built in 2012. After a year, it was prepped and two coats of your Semi-solid stain was used. After the winter, it showed much peeling. I resanded and powerwashed and this time used the Cabot solid stain. The pictures show the same result. I don't think this should need to be done every year. This area is sun in the summer and snow in the winter. Please advise as I can't afford to be repurchasing every year.

We expected this product to wear much better

By ljreem

from United States

Comments about Cabot 1 Gallon Solid Color Decking Stain, Opaque (01-1801):

We followed the instructions for preparation and application, and the deck looked great for the first summer and fall. Now that we are at the next spring after a winter that wasn't particularly harsh, large chunks of the paint have peeled and we will need to redo the entire floor surface of the deck and stairs. We are very disappointed in this product, as we expected it to wear more than one year for its price.

Works well in our harsh environment

By bdws

from franconia, nh

Comments about Cabot 1 Gallon Solid Color Decking Stain, Opaque (01-1801):

I've been using this acrylic solid stain on my deck for 7 years. Yes, I do touch it up every 2 years but I live close to the canadian border so piles of snow and lots of rain. This stain is flawless where the wood was in good condition - meaning brand new deck boards that I replaced due to rot from bad care of previous owner - but it does peel in areas where the wood is old and breaking down - the areas of my deck that I have not yet replaced. Honestly, every summer I'm amazed at how great my deck looks and how well this stain holds up.

Be prepared to redo EVERY summer

By skees

from Chicago, IL, United States

Comments about Cabot 1 Gallon Solid Color Decking Stain, Opaque (01-1801):

I've been using this product for 10 years. Why? Because the previous homeowner used it and I didnt want to take it all off my huge deck with many railings. We live in Chicagoland so snow does sit on the deck for several weeks of the year. Every summer it is peeling off all over the deck and we have to scrape, powerwash and repeat. It's fine on vertical surfaces. It looks just like PAINT, not stain. Water does not bead up on it. There are just huge puddles of water on the deck after a rain.

Doesn't Last Long

By thefenderbender

from Wasilla, AK, United States

Comments about Cabot 1 Gallon Solid Color Decking Stain, Opaque (01-1801):

I purchased the Cabot Solid Color Decking Stain to do our large deck. I followed the prep instructions and applied a single coat of the stain using a brush. It went on nice, filled all the crevices and looked amazing when it was first applied (2012). The next summer it was starting to peal up in large chunks on the horizontal deck boards and stairs (2013). The railing still looks good with no pealing, but the surface you walk on was pretty bad. Fast forward to the following summer and now it is really bad on the walking surface, railing still looks good with no pealing (2014).

Solid color decking stain

By cnicholas

from Lawrence, KS

Comments about Cabot 1 Gallon Solid Color Decking Stain, Opaque (01-1801):

This stain was easy to apply and did cover the way I expected. However, the drying time was supposed to be 8 hours and 24 hours later it is still not dry even though temp and humidity are ideal. If it is not "dry" or "cured" in another 24 hours I have a real problem. The product says to NOT thin but I suspect that it needed thinning in order to be absorbed completely.
