Behr Lawsuit


Behr had a big class-action lawsuit against them as many of you know for a poor stain they put out, Liquid Rawhide. We do a lot of resto's on these houses, here are a couple shots on a log-sided home, B&A. You're next, BDA4Life This is a cedartone stain.

Re: Behr Lawsuit


For me, the lesson-learned here is that if you want to have good pics for a portfolio, you've got to have a lot of color. My last pic is the only one I think is any good. The rest are boring. I'm always trying to improve my photog skills, takes a lot of patience. I'm not as good as Shane yet

...Names are just a name when it comes to stain. You call this natural, I've had people say, "too gold" "too orange" and "too red". To me, it's too orange. I like browner colors. Last?? We'll re-coat the decks in 2-3yrs and walls in 4-5yrs. Probably need it on south and west at 3.5yrs.

Re: Behr Lawsuit


When they put the Behr on was it new construction?

Great work, it looks like a brand new house.

Re: Behr Lawsuit


Nice job!

A couple of questions. Where are you located, I've never heard of Behr Rawhide stain, luckily. And also, how did you prep the house. It if was Behr then is must have been a waterborn product which would prevent any oil based product from penetrating. Did you use a waterborn product when you stained the home?

I've just begun staining large homes in the mountains of Colorado last year and tried about 5 differen stain products. All oil based formulas. Sikkens, Messmers, Penofin, Cabot.. and the like. I can't say I fell in love with any one of them. The sikkens was very difficult to work with and the fumes indeed "sikkened" my customer but it was the best finished product.

Hope you aren't freezing your hiney off like we are currently in Colorado!
