Customer Questions & Answers

What matches this in a smaller size than 5 gallon bucket? I just need a gallon size.

Asked by: Laurie
Hi Laurie, Thanks for your question. The No. 402 Transparent Wood Stain in Redwood comes in a gallon container. If it's not available off the shelf at your local Home Depot, it can be special ordered. The product would then be delivered to the store for pick up. Hope this helps, and good luck on your project!

My deck is already old looking will this help it look good again and does it work on old wood?

Asked by: Anonymous
Dear DaneilleH, For older decks or decks that are in a worn or weathered condition, we would recommend using a Solid Color Stain that will hide the blemishes and imperfections of your wood. Our Behr Premium Solid Color Weatherproofing Wood Stain would be a good choice. It's really important that you properly prep your wood prior to staining. We would recommend using our All In One Wood Cleaner which will clean and transform your wood to it's original color for optimal performance of the stain. Thank you for the inquiry!

Is this Item Military Discount qualified??

Your military discount is only given on items you choose to give it to - unlike Lowe's who provides a 10 percent military discount on everything they sell. So, I need to know it this item qualifies for YOUR 10 Percent Military discount??

Customer Reviews

5 gal. Deck Plus Redwood Transparent Waterproofing Wood Finish is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 6.
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 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 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 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.
