Stain does not hold up to minimal foot traffic. Stained our deck in Oct before the cold weather set in - in the spring the stain had not held up over the winter - only traffic on deck was boots when we shoveled snow with a plastic shovel.

Excellent Coverage

By GKST

from Cary, NC, United States

Comments about Cabot 1 Gallon Neutral Base Waterbased Semi-Solid Acrylic Stain (01-1106):

I just re stained a 450 SF deck with about 30 steps and all the rails. I used almost 4 gallons. I used the oil based semi solid. I sanded all the top rails and scuffed the decking with green scotch brite pads to make sure it would adhere. Some of the old product of a different brand, was still a bit shiny in places. all the new boards took two coats but the rest covered with just one coat over the old coating. It looks great! If it fails I'll hear about it and will report back here. I made sure there was no foot traffic at all for 48 hours. Also no rain during the curing time. I applied the stain with square stain pads on the deck and furry 4" rollers on the spindles, rails and side boards. In some areas I had to wipe away some bubbles left by the roller before it dried. Myself and a helper completed the job in about 7 hours

most amazing poly stain I have ever used! EVER!!!!

By Happy customer

from Alachua, Florida, USA

Comments about Cabot 1 Gallon Neutral Base Waterbased Semi-Solid Acrylic Stain (01-1106):

I used this water borne poly stain on 3 wooden steps from the kitchen to our family room and garage...10 years ago. The stairs still look newly stained. This stuff wears like iron after it cures! I used 3 or 4 coats of the poly stain to get a full rich color and hide all brush marks. I also stained a large kitchen bookcase, railing, and handrails with the Cabot Walnut satin finish, 8263. We used the dark oak satin on a bedroom set. Such a lovely, rich, and durable finish on everything. Because it is water borne, the polystain is easy to use. IT DOES NOT SMELL much at all, important because I have asthma and other health considerations, so I need a low VOC polystain. The stain brush was VERY EASY TO CLEAN UP WITH WARM SOAPY WATER. The only problem is that Cabot no longer makes this water borne polystain. We are so sad!!!!! We cannot find any water borne polystains at local markets. I now have more wood items to stain. PLEASE make this product again, it is a superior product in so many ways.

Terrible reformulation of a once great stain!

By mojo

from Lincoln MA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Cabot 1 Gallon Neutral Base Waterbased Semi-Solid Acrylic Stain (01-1106):

I have had similar horrible results from using Cabot semi-solid deck stain. Prior to having a new deck installed two years and a half years ago, I had used the "old" formula for my deck for 25 years and always had perfect results. When the new deck was done, the contractor used Cabot's new formula and I was told I had to wait a year before doing another coat. After that first year, the finish did not look good so I prepped the deck as I always do and applied a new coat of stain. It behaved very differently that the old formula, appearing to not penetrate the wood. Within months huge patches of bare wood appeared everywhere. It looks absolutely horrible. And now I don't know what to do. Certainly using the same stain does not seem to be a reasonable option!

Great experience using this product!!

By Skooter

from Biloxi, MS

Comments about Cabot 1 Gallon Neutral Base Waterbased Semi-Solid Acrylic Stain (01-1106):

Built a small pump house using 100 linear feet of Western Red Cedar 0.75x8" beveled siding and used this product to stain all 6 sides of the cedar before installing it. I specifically wanted an oil-based stain. I allowed to wood to acclimate outside and protected from sun/moisture before staining it. The stain went on very well. I threw away the cheap brushes I'd used when I was finished (I wrapped them tightly in Saran Wrap to prevent the brushes from drying out as it took a few days to install all the siding (part time effort). One side of the cedar has a rough texture so more stain adhered to that side that the smooth sides - not a complaint, but a consideration for those with a similar project so I used more stain than I had anticipated I would, ~4/5 of 1 gallon for 100lf with all 6 sides of each board painted with 1 coat. I'm a semi-solid stain believer now as it will not peel like paint does.

Cabot stains not recommended

By msbarbara

from Eugene, OR, United States

Comments about Cabot 1 Gallon Neutral Base Waterbased Semi-Solid Acrylic Stain (01-1106):

I purchased Cabot semi-transparent stain for my new wooden deck because of a referral and high rating. After the stain was applied it blistered up all over the deck boards. I was told that once it dried the blisters would go away. They did not and the deck now looks like reptile skin. If anyone uses this, be sure the instructions are read carefully.

Very poor results

By Eggdar

from Post Falls, ID, United States

Comments about Cabot 1 Gallon Neutral Base Waterbased Semi-Solid Acrylic Stain (01-1106):

I have a 18x14 cedar deck that needed to be restained. I pressure washed it to get as much old stain off. Then I used 2 1/2 gallons of Olympic deck wash as recommended by Lowe's. Then waited 2 days to dry. I then applied the stain with the recommended staining pad. The results were very splotchy. Some places are shiny and some are not. This stain was recommended by the paint dept at Lowe's. It took 2 gallons to do the deck. The last time I stained my deck it only took 1 gallon of a product called In-wood. Very unhappy.

Utterly amazed

By iam5foot2

from ontario canada across from Buffalo NY

Comments about Cabot 1 Gallon Neutral Base Waterbased Semi-Solid Acrylic Stain (01-1106):

Southern Ontario - sanded deck to raw wood last year (no chemical prep) followed instructions - 1 coat... beautiful colour... big deal they all look good the first year... Follow up - after a rough winter... the verticals have maintained the deep rich colour the deck has faded a bit... but the wear is uniform across the entire deck... no peeling or any of the problems we have had to deal with for the past 30 years... so impressed - will be interesting to see what happens after a 2nd snowy winter... will keep you posted...

Deck peeled after less than a year of application

By maris

Comments about Cabot 1 Gallon Neutral Base Waterbased Semi-Solid Acrylic Stain (01-1106):

I used Cabot because I heard it was the best and didn't mind paying for a quality stain. I followed directions, sanded first then applied. The new boards held the stain , the older boards did not. Do not use this stain unless the wood is brand new.

Very Poor

By Munchkin

Comments about Cabot 1 Gallon Neutral Base Waterbased Semi-Solid Acrylic Stain (01-1106):

Dear Sirs: I am extremely disappointed in your product. We built a new cedar deck and waited 1 year to apply your product. As you can see this product did not last even 1 year. I work for a general contractor and will not be recommending your product as we now have to sand the deck to remove.

terrible semi solid deck stain

By aj gv

Comments about Cabot 1 Gallon Neutral Base Waterbased Semi-Solid Acrylic Stain (01-1106):

I bought this product spring 2015 and used all your prep products to get the deck ready to use semi-solid deck stain. Now this first or next 2016 spring it looks just horrible, it is peeling off and most is already peeled off. It looks as if it is over 20 years old.

Horrible product, very disappointed

By mimiOH

from Avon, IN

Comments about Cabot 1 Gallon Neutral Base Waterbased Semi-Solid Acrylic Stain (01-1106):

Completely overhauled my deck less than a year ago: Stripped the old stain with a stripper; washed the deck with a cleaner; rinsed with a pH balancer. Waited 5 days for deck to dry, applied Cabot Semi-Solid deck stain in Cordovan Brown. The deck looked gorgeous, better than I had hoped for! I was so proud! Fast forward to December and I started noticing bald spots where the stain was coming off. Now, in May, less than a year since I did all that hard work, my deck looks disgusting. The stain has come off of almost every horizontal board. Spent all that money on all of those prep products, and all that time, it took me almost 4 weeks to complete. I really don't know what to do now, I'm seriously thinking about just rolling some exterior paint on top of that mess. I'm very disappointed in this product, I will not use again, I will not be recommending.

SOLID COLOR ACRYLIC STAIN PEALED OFF

By Hornick

from Deerfield, IL, United States

Comments about Cabot 1 Gallon Neutral Base Waterbased Semi-Solid Acrylic Stain (01-1106):

I purchased Cabot because I always had the impression it was the best. I purchased and waited a year to apply to new cedar after allowing wood to weather. Wire brushed and cleaned surfaces properly prior to application. It looked great at first, then started chipping and peeling off. My hardware dealer told me the factory had a problem with the formula and was introducing a "new & improved" product. I was told to remove all the old product before re-applying new product. That's a lot of work I am not capable or ready to undertake. How can you help me?

This stain forments mold growth.

By C S Katzenstein

from Eastern Connecticut

Comments about Cabot 1 Gallon Neutral Base Waterbased Semi-Solid Acrylic Stain (01-1106):

We have had nothing but trouble since our contractor stained our house in CT with this stain. Every year, we spend $$$ having exterior mold removed. We had ZERO mold on our home before it was stained with this product. Our contractor now says the only way to stop the mold growth is to remove it, treat the house and repaint with a solid stain. I do NOT want a solid stain. I understand from internet postings that homeowners started having this problem when Cabot changed the stain formula. Cabot/Valspar has been very slow to respond to our contractor about our issues. DO NOT USE THIS STAIN IF YOU LIVE IN EASTERN CT.

Rich deep color

By JohnG

Comments about Cabot 1 Gallon Neutral Base Waterbased Semi-Solid Acrylic Stain (01-1106):

Had a new deck built off the house this summer and bought this stain because of the recommendation from a painter buddy of mine. It was easy to apply, and it went a long way. I am not a professional, but the job looks like I am! The stain gives such a deep redwood color! The cleanup was easy with soap and water! This was a great finish to our big summer project.

Looks bad a year later

By freda

from San Antonio, TX, United States

Comments about Cabot 1 Gallon Neutral Base Waterbased Semi-Solid Acrylic Stain (01-1106):

There are areas where bare wood is showing through and not just in higher traffic areas. The part of the deck that is under cover looks okay. I bought this brand because I was told it would hold up under the hot sun but that doesn't seem to be the case. I see the comments from Cabot usually put the blame on the homeowner saying the stain wasn't put on properly. It's more likely that this brand wasn't the right product for my deck in San Antonio. A free gallon to do touch up would be appreciated.

cabot semi solid stain on Trex composite deck

By twalston6079

from columbus oh

Comments about Cabot 1 Gallon Neutral Base Waterbased Semi-Solid Acrylic Stain (01-1106):

I have professional cleaned and stained decks for the past 25years during which I have used several brands of deck stains always seqarching for the most durable , ease of application and cost. when the composite decking came into vogue and the inherit mold problems with some types it was a delema to find a product to clean tthe surface as well as seal it. It seemed that a annual treatment was always in order. I came across the cabot program on line. After alot of research I decided to use it on a composite deck that I have cleaned and sealed every year for the past 4years, This year I cleaned it and used the 17406 semisolid stain tinted to a red cedar color. The results was great and the deck looked like new after completion. Longevity will be determined over time but I aam very encouraged that it may hold up for 2-3 years..

Not even gray leaning blue this thing is full on country blue! Spent a lot of time and money to strip sand and stain a deck we didn't like only to wind up w a blue deck...on a green house.

Team Cabot, please tell the truth what happened to

By SIMM

from Massachusetts, United States

Comments about Cabot 1 Gallon Neutral Base Waterbased Semi-Solid Acrylic Stain (01-1106):

I've used cabot stain for years and the stain lasted between three and five years before I had to re-stain. A great product. But codes on stains have changed the last couple of years and stains now act like paints. They peel, crack and lift. They do not seep into the wood anymore. They call these stains environmentally friendly. I was told it is like back in the seventies when they removed lead from all paints. This is a slow transition that stains are going through now. Pretty soon all stains will act like paint and peel. I don't know why they even call them stains anymore. You can thank the great USA looking out for us and making us spend more money and time staining, or should I say, repainting time and time again. I ask every where I go if the stain I'm buying is the "new" environmentally safe stain. If it is, keep searching. They are still around, but you have to look.

Comments about Cabot 1 Gallon Neutral Base Waterbased Semi-Solid Acrylic Stain (01-1106):

I applied this last summer to two pressure-treated decks after thorough prep of surfaces. It looked great - I was very pleased. But then winter. The snow melted and the stain has now cracked and lifted in many areas. It even happened on the deck I never shoveled or set foot on all winter. Very disappointed.

Very unhappy with the results

By Jocko

from Lakeville, MN, United States

Comments about Cabot 1 Gallon Neutral Base Waterbased Semi-Solid Acrylic Stain (01-1106):

Purchased 1400 series with high hopes. Majority of the deck was new wood "seasoned" for about 10 months. Followed the preparation instructions step by step. I completed the staining in August and by the time the snow was gone the next spring the stain was flaking and cracking. Traffic areas were practically bare of stain and even the tops of the railings were flaking. A lot of work and time for no return.

same issues as tanich and mark. power-washed my deck, used wood cleaner, used wood brightener, followed instructions to the T. Didn't even last the winter. Only took a photo during and after. First photo is after. Should I have used a sealer after applying the stain?! There was no mention of needing an additional sealant on the can.

Amazing Product!

By Sally

from Ekalaka, MT

Comments about Cabot 1 Gallon Neutral Base Waterbased Semi-Solid Acrylic Stain (01-1106):

My husband and I installed a virgin aspen vaulted ceiling in our living room but wanted to avoid the yellowing that so often accompanies clear sealants. We used a satin finish on the aspen prior to installing it. Absolutely beautiful and one year later not a sign of yellowing. We also used a gloss version on our paper floor in this same room. Who would ever think that a stained paper floor would look and feel like marble? It turned out amazingly gorgeous. I do wish the product wasn't so difficult to find. Even online it is difficult to find anything larger than a quart.
