I built a fence at my house in march-april and was planning on putting a finish on it this next week when im on vacation from work. Im leaning towards using the Behr Weatherproofing Wood Stain for Decks and Fences. Ive heard good things about it. Its kinda pricey at $159 / 5 gallons. but ive heard its one of the top products out there. The 5 gallon bucket says it will cover 1,500 square feet. My fence is roughly 250 ft long x 6 ft tall. Which should be right at 1,500 sq feet. I know i will have to cover the front and back so i know thats (2) 5 gallon buckets of this stuff already. On the Behr website they reccomend the first coating to be thick at about 250 – 300 sq ft per gallon. And on the 2nd coating 500-600 sq ft per gallon. My questions i have are:
- Has anybody else used this product? What did you think about it?
- I have a 5 gallong “back pack” sprayer i plan on using to apply this finish. ANy forseeable problems there?
-For those that have used this product was one coat sufficient ?
- How often do you re apply? yearly? every other year? every 5 years?
