Sealing new Cedar Pergola

Wanting to weather seal and waterproof new cedar pergola without changing natural wood color. Will this product work?
Asked by: Anonymous
Dear MDSchade, The BEHR Transparent Waterproofing Wood Finish is recommended for properly prepared new to slightly weathered, unsealed exterior wood surfaces (0-5 years exposure). This product can be used on a Cedar Pergola, however you can expect a slightly darker finish after staining due to the product being lightly toned. Thank you for posting the question!

Hello Mate, Great question. The shelf life for our product is 2 years if it’s unopened. We’d just recommend doing a stir test when ready to use. Best wishes on your project, Kevin

Customer Reviews

1-gal. #400 Natural Transparent Waterproofing Wood Finish is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 56.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product I have used other products in the past but this is by far the best. Our deck is 23 years old; however, I always treat and maintain the wood regularly especially since we have full sun exposure during the summer months. After power washing I applied the BEHR waterproof. I use the transparent natural which has a slight color but brings out the grain in the wood which is recommended for older wood.. It made the old wood look amazing and covered very well, better than other products I used in the past. Be sure to follow the label as it does take up to 72 hours to dry. The product also is very affordable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our company uses Behr exclusively for all our staining needs, we prefer the premium transparent 5... Our company uses Behr exclusively for all our staining needs, we prefer the premium transparent 500 and recommend it as the stronger choice to hold up to weather for our customers but when a customer thinks the 500 premium stain shades are to strong and they want a lighter look we use the 400 series. We have work crews through out the USA and would like to help Behr customers and the Behr company in any way we can. John Doyle owner 850-543-5142

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Once again I tried Behr and should have known better. This was not what it appeared to be for what I wanted. Home Depot didn't have what I wanted so I thought I would try this product. I should have known better since it a Behr product. I have not been happy with any of the paint products that I have used by Behr I am not sure why I thought this would be anything different. I will not use Behr products again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Covers great This stain covered great. This is the 4th time I have used Behr waterproofing stain on my deck. It does a great job of protecting my deck. My deck is 24 years old and it has the original wood and looks brand new. Thanks for protecting my deck Behr!!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a product! I got a good coat on and within 12 hours it rained. It didn't look dried for 10hrs after rain. I did not get a chance to put another coat on and it rained again. Only this time it beaded up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stain This is a great product. It has a quick drying time and covers very well. If you do roll it on make sure you take your time not to splash out of your pan when applying to roller.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Coverage. Applied easily, good coverage, covered 160 sq ft with 2 coats. Color was dark tan kinda. Appears will do the job but with painting/staining time will tell.
