Customer Questions & Answers

I have a painted deck. Will a stain work over paint or should I just apply new paint

Asked by: Anonymous
Dear Kiowaklipper, If you have a previously painted deck and it is in sound condition with no peeling or flaking, then assuming that it was an exterior paint for horizontal surfaces, you should be able to re-paint it. If you would prefer the look of a wood finish like the Behr Waterproofing Wood Finish, then you will need to strip the previous coating down to the bare wood before applying the wood finish. Be sure to follow all label instructions for this stripping process. Thank you for the inquiry!

Can the Behr waterproofing wood finish be put on with a sprayer?

Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, but you must spray it on heavy and brush it into wood grain and crevices for the maximum protection and beauty. It will soak in and dry before you can brush it in leaving an uneven surface color. I would not recommend this application for best results. It is okay to look good temporarily if you fog on several coats, but the finish will not last as long as it should because it did not cover evenly. If you take the time to brush it on keeping a wet edge while working it into the woodgrain and crevices and doing an additional coat the same way you will be pleased in the long run and the product will perform as specified.

Is it recommended to mix containers together to get a consistent color

I have a 4 year old 5-gal (unopened) container of Behr Weatherproofing Wood Finish, #401 cedartone. It has been stored in my basement, Where the temp remains 65°-68° year-round. My cedar deck is several years old, about 1100sqft. and never had any finish applied to it. I am thinking it will take more than the 5-gal I have. How should I prepare the container I have before use and would you recommend mixing it with an additional 5-gal of the same product to achieve a consistent color? Any other tips would be appreciated
Asked by: AndyD
Hello and thank you for your question. We do recommend intermixing multiple containers of BEHR® Transparent Waterproofing Wood Finish to ensure color uniformity. However, before doing so, we highly suggest checking the product to see if it is still usable. Many factors may influence the quality of the product over time. Best of luck on your project.

I used a roller for the first coat and got roller marks..If I brush on the second coat will that help the marks?
Asked by: steve
Hi Steve. A second thin coat with a brush or pad applicator will help even out the finish. However, since this is a transparent wood finish, the more prominent roller marks may still show through.

Customer Reviews

5 gal. Deck Plus Cedar Naturaltone Transparent Waterproofing Wood Finish is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible product After years of satisfaction with Behr paint and other products, I am terribly disappointed to have to give this review. We put in a new deck 3 years ago. We allowed it to age a full year (as recommended) prior to staining. In the past we had been disappointed with another brand named stain fading and so opted for Behr product when the time came to stain the new deck. We prepped and cleaned as recommended prior to applying the stain. Within one year, our deck is peeling!! Peeling like we painted it, not stained it. This is obviously not a stain product since you can see that it did not "stain" the wood at all. We will now have to completely strip and re-prepare and restain our deck. And, we will not be using Behr products to do it. Since this happened to us, I have spoken to other people that used the Behr staining and weather proofing products and have had the same result. I warn everyone I know NOT to use these products on their deck. I cannot believe that Behr produced this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from horrible I bought five gallon of the transparent waterproofing wood finish stain. It is not even a year old and it looks terrible. It is off part of the decks, I did 3 decks is the reason I purchased so much, That was a mistake. It is not worth the extra money thinking it is better anything would have been better than this

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy this product We had a new redwood deck built last spring 2013. We applied Behr Premium Wood Coatings All-in-One Wood Cleaner in accordance with directions on the container. Then, in accordance with directions on the can, we applied BEHR Premium Weatherproofing Wood Finish. We carefully and precisely followed all directions and time frames on these products and we were pleased with the results. We are in California and have been in a drought since the deck was built. Now, it has rained for a few days and the deck looks terrible! It has black streaks and little black dots all over it. They look like mold. We brushed a spot on the deck with a scrub brush and the stain came off - right down to the bare wood. The BEHR Premium Weatherproofing Wood Finish can said this product would last 4 years on a deck. It didn’t even last one year! These are appallingly poor and ineffective products. So, thanks to Behr, we are faced with having to remove it all, clean all it up and start over.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Used on fence, deck, and tree house shake, fence ,deck. This worked great. I did not prep wood at all. I just brushed into the wood two coats and it soaked in well. I did the same thing again for the next two years in the summer and it darkened a little but has a bulletproof finish that has surprised me on the deck and steps of my front porch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product We bought this to stain our daughters' playhouse swingset. We used the leftover on my raised garden. Both look fantastic and like new. The next morning after a light sprinkle, the water was beaded over the boards and not soaking in. Fantastic product, never have had an issue with Behr Paints. They will always be my number 1 choice.
