Rated 1 out of 5 by Horse Pasture Pam from Maybe my expectations are too high??? We used this product to stain a three board, pine fence for a 4 acre horse pasture late summer 2016. Given the size of the project, we (me and my wife) did the staining over several weeks depending of the weather, using a roller and brush. We prepped the boards with a deck cleaner, allowed to dry and applied as instructed on the 5 gallon bucket. The applications went good and the stain did cover well. The next summer the peeling began. I would say it was "micro peeling", really fine splitting of the layers of stain & starting to come off the fence boards. This became progressively worse throughout the summer and was occurring over the ENTIRE fence, both sides of the boards. This spring it is peeling off in large chunks. It is terrible and unacceptable. It took so much work to do this project the first time and now we are facing the prospect of having to sand or pressure wash the entire fence to get all of the loose garbage off and literally start the whole project over - in less than 2 years of applying Cabot stain. The odd thing is that the green treat 4x4's are holding the stain just fine??? I am not a professional painter, but I am a bit more than an average handyman. We own many rentals & have done most of our own painting and staining at them over the last 20 years. We have never had a product simply fail so bad. I don't think it would have mattered if we put 10 layers on (the bucket called for 2), this stuff was not going to stick to our pine boards. The end result for us = significantly more work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PDN2 from 20 years experience with this product Located: New England. Overall Recommendation: highly recommend Detail: Built house in 1987. It has red cedar siding. Original paint used lasted approx. 5 years. Then used different product via professional painter which lasted approx 6 years. Since then I have spray painted my home three times using cabot solid. (Approx. Every 8-10 year!) It weather's very well. Especially north side. North-west and east Gable sides not as well and south facing front well. I wash the house and did the little spot scraping needed before painting. Comparing the Cabot to the previous two major brands used, I highly recommend Cabot and would use nothing else. Also, this last time made decision to change color and was able to have Cabot tinted using the color formular of another brand.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JustDecky from Needed to replace the deck... Our paint store recommended that we use Cabot solid stain on our pressure treated deck. We used Bluestone and had good results for the first 8-10 years with semi-annual re coat needed. After that, the stain bubbled up and peeled off in strips in many places within weeks. We tried stripping, priced out sanding and decided to replace the entire 500 square foot deck surface this year. The railing need to be redone, but it's been about 7-8 years. All horizontal surfaces are a mess. Where it stuck, it really stuck. Baffled with regards for how to proceed. We are considering staining the rails white this time, but what stain to use? Cabot doesn't get much love from me or the internet these days. Which is really a shame - it is a venerable brand.

Rated 1 out of 5 by jmeisenz from A DISASTER Installed new fence late 2011 let it weather over the winter. We insisted the painter wait in the spring 2012 until the fence had dried after rains and it was warm enough, then he used this product. By the next spring, it was peeling and flaking- and since then we have watched it deteriorate to a complete eyesore. Having it restained is now unavoidable- except that we can't just "restain" it- because it is flaking off in giant chunks like paint. The painter who came for an estimate cannot believe we used a "stain" product, much less this one! We are now faced with the enormous expense of stripping the fence and staining it- not to mention replacing all of our mulch (plus the neighbors!) bc it will be next to impossible to spare it in the process of stripping the "stain" that should never look like this. We are beyond upset at the cost of product lost/labor along with the expense of now fixing this issue- and it sounds like we are not the only ones to have this issue with this "stain".

Rated 5 out of 5 by Old House from Two coats or one? I was thrilled to get clarity about putting on one or two coats of the Solid Color Acrylic Siding Stain over previously stained wood after visiting the Cabot website. It is unclear on the can directions. On the can, in two places in bold type it says "requires a 2-coat application" and is unclear if it means new wood AND previously stained wood. According to the website, the product is a one-coat application. Suggestion to Cabot to make it clear on the can directions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DanW from Easy to apply and really durable We used this on our cedar-sided home in Northern Michigan to excellent results. We also used this stain on three small out-buildings we built, sided with T-111 in a fake board-and-batten style. The stain rolls on uniformly and is easy to back-brush. The house is going on 10 years now and still looks great!

Rated 1 out of 5 by BrianAF from This Product Does Not Last Bought this product in July 2014 when doing maintenance on existing deck. Replaced a few boards, sanded all wood, and used deck cleaner to prepare surface. This product went on great and looked good. Fast forward to May 2015 and the wood has peeled off all over the place on the flat surfaces of old and new boards alike. The vertical faces of railings still looks good, but most of deck looks terrible and people get peeled off latex on their feet if they walk on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Momof6 from Great Product! Last year I used this product on a old wooden play ground swing set which was looking pretty old. I used Baked Brick color to revive the wood, the gym set looks brand new. I used a 4" roller as well as a brush and it went on smoothly. Still looking good this year especially after this hard winter we just had in the Northeast. I am very pleased with this product and look forward to doing a back deck project soon using Cabot again, but a different color this time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by the_moose from the only product i use i'm a contractor and use this for going over clear coated siding (that need to be done every year or two, when people get tired of the maintenance). do the trim in a different color and it really stands out. houses i've painted 5 or 6 years ago look like they've just been cleaned or washed even though nothing has been done. bottom line, outstanding product, easy to apply, as advertised. i'm in western north carolina with high humidity and drastic temp changes in a 24 hour period. can't recommend enough. we don't spray, roll and back brush.
