Should I use this on previously sealed/painted wood?

This question is from 1 gal. #502 Redwood Transparent Weatherproofing Wood Finish

June 24, 2016
We have a screened porch with wooden frames and floor that we want to protect and repaint. I have no idea what the previous owner did, whether he used a stain/sealer like this or just paint, but the floor and one wall seem to have this type of redwood color. Is this the right product for us? Why does it say "redwood" and "transparent" at the same time--which is it?

Hello Markdf,
We appreciate your question. This wood finish adheres by penetrating into bare wood, so we'd strongly recommend to first remove the existing coating. This can be done with a product like our No. 64 Wood Stain & Finish Stripper. Then, please clean with a product like our No. 63 Wood Cleaner.

Hello Markdf,

This can be done with a product like our No. 64 Wood Stain & Finish Stripper. Then, please clean with a product like our No. 63 Wood Cleaner. And, to your question about the color/finish, it's actually got some stain solids to it and colorant such that it has a tinted look. Yet, the amounts of solids and colorant are so little that it can still provide a transparent finish where a lot of the wood color and grain shows through to play into the overall finished look. Please be sure to follow all label instructions for a beautiful finish that lasts.

Answer: 
We used this on our fence that had previously been sealed with linseed oil. So before putting it on we used a stain/oil stripper on it and then applied two coat of stain, it was a lot of work but worth it. The finished fence looks great and the finish has held up well in the weather. Transparent means that the wood grain shows and the wood has a deep red color.

Answer: 
Hello Matt,
Thanks for your question. This product can be applied to pressure treated wood as soon as the wood is dry. The surface would need to be bare wood. A previous coating would need to be stripped with Behr No. 64 Stripper followed by cleaning the bare wood surface with our No. 63 All-In-One Wood Cleaner.
Best wishes for your project!

Answer: 
I have applied it to one of my fences which is made of pressure treated lumber and it worked just fine. I did not apply anything beforehand. The one thing I would caution is to make sure the lumber is not too wet as PT lumber can often be. If its wet, that will keep the weatherproofing from being absorbed into the wood.

Staining my Deck - some questions-URGENT PLZ.!

This question is from 1 gal. #502 Redwood Transparent Weatherproofing Wood Finish
Asked by
Atlanta, GA
Read all my Q&A
November 8, 2013
I live in Atlanta, GA.. My deck is new (replaced all footboards 6 months ago), except for railings which is 20 yrs. old but looks good. I had a dark stain on railings. Stripped it pretty well with Behr stripper. Got stripper off with low pressure, pr.washer. But still the pressure washer ripped the wood in places (fibres exposed, looks hairy at places). New wood NOT treated yet. Lightly pressure washed new wood just to get little bit of dirt off. Planning on using Behr Premium cleaner today to brighten both new wood (footboards) and Old wood (railings). Today's high about 60. Not planning to brush (to cumbersome#, but hose it off with a less powerful pr.washer ensuring that wood does not rip. Mildly sand it Sat to get glaze off on new wood and remove the exposed fibres on old wood. And stain it with behr Redwood Transparent stain Sun #Temp 68). Temp will stay at 68 Mon & Tue, will be in low 50's/upper 40's Wed onwards. I want the beauty of the wood to show with grains.
My questions:
a) Is my overall approach ok?
b) Sanding 24 hrs. after using cleaner ok?
c) Do I need to even mildly sand the new wood at all or is it unnecessary?
d) How much should I dilute stain to ensure that grains are seen, wood beauty is preserved, and wood is not covered like paint?
e) Planning on doing just 1 coat given that it may not dry easily. Was planning on doing 2nd coat in Spring. OK or should I do 2 coats now?
Please advise......Thx!

Answer: 
1/14 Just did new deck. Used the cleaner, did not sand. The directions state to put second coat on in the same project, not to wait. We did the next day.
Did not dilute stain, put on light, will go on orange and then soak in so grain shows through. Coat all sides. Highs were in the 60 and lows in 40s when we did this.

Dear Murli,

b) Sanding 24 hrs. after using cleaner ok?
Yes, as long as the wood is completely dry. Sanding your wood deck after power washing/cleaning and before final staining and sealing is ideal.
c) Do I need to even mildly sand the new wood at all or is it unnecessary?
After cleaning/drying new wood, wood fibers can often remain raised and may cause splinters. Lightly sanding the new wood is recommended.
d) How much should I dilute stain to ensure that grains are seen, wood beauty is preserved, and wood is not covered like paint?
We do not recommend thinning our stain before application. Two thin coats will still allow the natural pattern of the wood to show through.
e) Planning on doing just 1 coat given that it may not dry easily. Was planning on doing 2nd coat in Spring. OK or should I do 2 coats now?
When applying the BEHR Premium Transparent Weatherproofing All-In-One Wood Finish 2 thin coats are required. Please wait 1-2 hours before recoat and follow all label instructions.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Be Very Careful I was very careful to apply this as stated on the can, even waited 24 hours to apply the second coat not the minimum 2 hours. Was supposed to dry within 72 hours and after 2 weeks it is still tacky. The company said to wash it down with hot soapy water and give it 3 more days, I did and it's still tacky. Now they say it may never dry and needs to be taken off, if you are going to try this product test it in a small area first and save yourself a lot of work and headache. August 2, 2016
