I applied cedar naturaltone and do not like the results at all. It has a strange light orange color, not natural at all. Can I apply a darker stain?

Asked by: Snickelfritz
Hello Snickelfritz! Stains are penetrating sealers and require access to the wood surface to do their job ... add color and protect the wood. Semi-transpartent coatings are partially see-through, so the next coat of stain will add color but the first coat will still show through. Unfortunately, you've already applied at least one coat of stain. So the next coat will certainly show the earlier color. In addition, the new coating may not last very long because the surface is already sealed and the new coat may not be able to absord. The manufacturer says, "Two coats are recommended." My suggestion would be to strip or sand the deck and start again. You'll improve both the color and the life of your deck.

Asked by: Anonymous
Use another brand. I found this easy to apply and looked good until winter set in. It flaked off on horizontal surfaces. After googling reviews of this product, I found this to be a common problem.

Customer Reviews

1-gal. Cedar Naturaltone Semi-Transparent Waterproofing Wood Stain is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 73.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from All my cedar projects look GREAT!!! I build a lot of rough and smooth cedar projects; fences, lattice, pergolas, decks, furniture, outdoor cabinets, and more. As a professional, I demand a quality finish that my clients ooh and aah over. Behr Wood Stain does just that! Its easy to apply and clean up is quick. Best of all my clients call me back to do more. I've used Behr products for 15 years and never had a bad experience. Definitely I would recommend Behr. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Product I applied this wood stain to a deck that had been completed but unfinished and weathered for 5 years. It was a total transformation. It made my deck look brand new again. The product was easy to apply and rain beaded nicely on top of it. If you have not stained in a long time...or ever, don't be surprised if the stain in the can does not look like the color you chose. My brown stain looked grey in the can and at first application. We were afraid at first that the wrong color had been mixed but after a few minutes we could see the true color as the product dried. I have no complaints about the product and would recommend it to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good stain I tried Valspar on my cedar sided home 20 years ago but after 5 years had to re-stain. I chose Behr the second time and the stain has held up to our mountain climate very well. House stain at 15 years looks great - will need to re-stain decks this year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Behr deck stain I had applied Behr Premium Semi-Transparent Stain 2 years ago and it began peeling. Since it is guaranteed 5 years, I called Behr and they set me up to receive a re-reimbursement check for the stain, stripper and wood cleaner. I had read some blogs by people who said trying to remove the old stain didn't work. I am here to say that if you follow the directions on the can for the stripper, and washer you can remove the stain. The secret is you have to work at it and when it says to apply stripper, wait 30-45 minutes and then have a stiff brush and water and need to work at it, that is what it means. After all it is a stain that goes into the wood and just doesn't flake off. I will tell you that I followed the instructions and re-applied the stain and it turned out beautiful. The customer service I received and the advice was right on target. Yes it took work, but Behr stood behind their product.
