Will this product go over the Original Behr "Rawhide" product?

Asked by: Alaskan77
Hello and thank you for your question. Before using BEHR PREMIUM® Transparent Log Home Gloss Finish, remove loose wood fibers, latex, oil-based and 100% acrylic coatings on new or weathered wood using a product such as BEHR Premium® NO. 64 Wood Stain & Finish Stripper. BEHR Premium NO. 63 All-In-One Wood Cleaner MUST be used following NO. 64 to clean, brighten & neutralize wood. When NO. 64 is not needed, use a product such as NO. 63 to clean and brighten the wood surface and to remove light to medium stains caused by mold, mildew, algae & fungus. We only recommend using the product over properly prepared surfaces. Be sure to follow all back-label instructions and best of luck on your project.

5-Gal. Clear Gloss Water Log Home Finish is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 20.

According to other review answers, this is the same product formula I used the first year. I have to disagree with this. The present product is different although it is acceptable. I put a new coat on every year, not because I have to, but because I want to. I have a cedar custom fence. Peeling occurs on the S4S(smooth four sides) cedar but not on rough cedar. It appears the rough cedar seems to be able to absorb the stain better than the S4S cedar. I have received many kind words on the appearance of this fence. Suggest you not refer to this stain as "clear" when it clearly is not, pun intended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Only thing that really covers my wood on my log cabin. Seems to soak in better than other stains.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Log home clear gloss I have been using this product since 1994 when I built my vacation rental log home in the Leavenworth area. The house sits in full sun and where the sun hits the house we need to coat the logs and rails every year or so. Where we have overhangs that protect the logs from the full sun we can go several years in between coatings. The product is easy to work with and easy to clean up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Behr Clear Gloss Log Cabin Finish - Great Product I have used this product for the last 7 years on my 4800 ft. log cabin and outbuildings. It holds up well and I pressure wash annually with Clorex. It has a tough urathane finish that resists mildew in the South where humidity plays havoc on log homes. I used to be able to buy it in 5 gallon quantities, however now only contractors can buy in 5 gallons quantaties. I have to special order at one gallon prices. Wish Home Depot would rethink that. It would also be nice if they would carry a small quantity in the store. I shop in Dahlonega, Gainesville and Blairsville and none of the stores carry it. Blairsville used to that's how I initially came upon it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Behr Log Cabin Gloss Finish I've used Berhr og cabin on my house for years. I love the product. I do have one concern. I was always able to get it in a 5 gallon tub. Now I'm told only contractors can get 5 gallon tubs with a minium order of 20 gallons. I was forced to buy it in gallon tubs. I pressure wash my cabin every year and put on one coat to freshen up and seal any cracks. I have a 4000 sq foot house and usually need at least 5 gallons to complete the project. Please reconsider offering the 5 gallon tub online as a special order to consumers. Thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best product for log homes and siding I've found. Easy to use I've been using this now for 5 years on a log home after stripping off an oil-based "natural" product as described by previous homeowner. The oil based product was the first product applied to a brand new log home and mildewed/black mold under the finish requiring the 3-step Behr stripping process before refinishing. Behr Log home finish is better than Thompsons or Behr waterproofing finsih for logs as it does not require stripping each few years to re-seal/recoat. Just wash off the dust or lightly pressure wash and add coats to build finish. Still is glossy and waterproof after applying two years ago. Waterbased for easy clean-up and completing small areas at a time. Way cheaper than sikens and the specialty brand log home finishes which if you read some reviews have still had mold issues under finish. Behr appears to resist bugs/termites also. Special order it in 5-gal size during the annual $20/off paint sales for best deal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very best stuff for cedar log sealing This is an amazing product for cedar logs especially since i live in the midwest where humidity is high. Goes on easily and mixes easily. This is the best finish for cedar and enhances the wood nice!
