A majority of reviews for Cabot deck stain are positive, but there are negative and mixed reviews as well. Many reviewers mention that Cabot produces two different versions of stains that are sold separately depending on the air quality in each region, while others complain of peeling after some time.

Many reviewers mention that Cabot stain comes in both water-based and oil-based formulations. It is made from different products, which suits various air quality forms. Several reviewers comment that the stain protects the deck from moisture, excess dirt and mildew. Some reviewers point out that the stain is easy to use and comes in many color options suiting different types of surfaces.

There are other reviewers who state that Cabot deck stain is made from Teflon, a product that offers extra strong protection and ensures that the stain lasts longer. A number of reviewers indicate that only one coat of stain is required to give a deck a good look. Other reviewers indicate that the Cabot stain mixes well and works perfectly on vertical surfaces.

However, some reviewers complain that the stain peels off after a short period when the stained surface is exposed to cold or warm weather. A few reviewers lament that a reduction of volatile organic compounds in the semi-transparent stain causes it to fade after being applied for a short period of time.
