Painting & Wallpapering/Painting, ReStaining an exterior deck

I was glad to see this post about Behr deck stain....have the same problem.  I followed all instructions to the letter and now, for the third time in two years, I must power wash the Behr stuff off as it is peeling in big pieces, and start all over.  Now, for a 71 year old lady, that is hard, hard work.  Do not buy this stuff.

I can answer all questions related to interior and exterior painting, priming and preperation, as well as interior staining. Also exterior stains and deck staining, including preperation and product selection. Not very knowlegable with the actual wallpaper hanging process, but I am familiar with wall prep and wallpaper adhesives.


I own/manage a large True Value hardware store and have a large "TrueValue Paint Shop" inside our store. Also a certified Woodsman stain expert as well as a certified Cabot stain dealer.

I have attended numerous True Value paint seminars, which are held every year to keep us up to date on new products and procedures. Recently became a certified Woodsman stain woodcare expert, which included training on all exterior woodcare. We are also a certified Cabot stain dealer, which also included education on the products for our staff to be able to sell Cabot.
