Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 22 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Read the label My only caveat is that it takes a loooooonnnnng time to dry. 72 hours before treading upon. My wife just about got stuck to the deck because she didn't believe me. Applies easily with a roller September 24, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent product This product was used to stain/seal/waterproof some exposed wood on my home. I was looking to purchase this home at the time and the company financing the loan would not finance the home with exposed wood. The pillars are now covered with this wood finish and they look great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Went on smooth I like the way it went on, and the way the cedar looked after it went on. I am waiting to see how it will last. If it lasts a year I would change the rating to excellent quality. November 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Much better than expected We have used Behr Transparent Waterproofing Wood Finish on an 12' x 24' open west-facing deck on our cabin in New Hampshire. The weather conditions are brutal with snow, ice and below-freezing temperatures in the winter, and full hot sun in the summer. We have only needed to treat the deck every three to four years, and it continues to look great. Thanks for making a good product. October 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Product Used this water proofer on our deck. Great results. However when we cleaned up our brushes, etc. killed the grass where we did this. So be careful when you clean up. Clean up is easy with water. We had actually bought 13 gallons before this one. Found out we were short. You can buy this in 5 gallon pails which is a little better deal. This is the second time we have used this product on our deck. Great product! Keep this product in stock. August 5, 2014
