Well? ...You already know what a leading consumer reporting mag says, so what does Behr say?

Please read the BEHR comments from actual consumers on the Consumer Reports site. Most fall into the "What were you thinking...?" category.

You could put something like Sherwin Williams solid color stain over dried semi-transparent stain. You can get it tinted to any color in the SW collection.

Acrylic stain over oil based stain


As oil-base stains age the solvents and vehicles disappear leaving a trail of dried pigment behind. Test an area by wire-brushing or pressure washing to see how much of the old pigment comes off. If you have what you consider a stainable surface, try a quality semi-solid or solid stain like Cabot's. Also, remember that most all stain jobs eventually get painted.
