Questions about transparency and durability

There is some color to the Natural Transparent finish, so why is it called transparent? The color is lovely, but I'm curious. Also, hope it holds up. Wish I had read some of the reviews of this product before totally relying on Home Depot's recommendation to buy it. As I search the net, the reviews are really mixed, more negative than I had hoped. Please tell me the stain won't start coming off in a year. The can says four years! Thank you.

It is what I would call semi-transparent, some color with a clear coating. It is not very durable, so if it will be getting quite a bit of wear I would try something different. I have had good success with Olympic.

After applying Natural-500, How long must it sit to prevent damage from rain?

Asked by: Anonymous
The finish must be dry in order to act properly to seal out rain droplets, and the finish must have been applied thoroughly to all surfaces of the wood to act as a uniform skin over the wood surface. Holidays in the surface application wherein some areas were not coated thoroughly will soak up rain water as quickly as any untreated wood. Natural rain events will eventually have a weathering effect on the wood because wood is a dynamic material which expands and contracts naturally with its own moisture content which can, over time, cause miniature fissures in the grain surface of lumber which then have no blockage to the passage of water on the surface. Read recoat instructions, and probable life of applied finish offered by the manufacturer. Locale and weather conditions vary across the country for probable weather exposure water levels and conditions.

1 gal. #500 Natural Transparent Weatherproofing Wood Finish is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 217.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks Great Cordovan Brown tint, transparent stain. Easy to brush on, but very "watery" as it runs and drips very easily. After brushing to even out, it dried with a consistent color. Does not cover a great amount of fence, two gallons used on 40 linear feet x 6 foot high cedar fence and gate (both sides) ..

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth it, EVER! Worst product ever. The stain is already peeling!!! It's not even been a full year. Our deck is old and we spent several weekends cleaning and preparing our wrap around deck, including pressure washing. We did this last summer and applied 2 coats. In between the coats we waited a full 24 hours before the next coat. Now it's fully coming off. Some of our old wood was rotting so we had to replace them, clearly this horrible product cannot even work with brand new wood. Don't ever buy this product if you want it to last. I seriously want my money back because this product is not cheap and it didn't even do the job right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Five Star Behr Products I've always been completely satisfied with all Behr products. Rather than using the usual TS, this was the 1st treatment used on my outdoor pergola built in 2013. The prepping was the most time consuming. I used the chocolate transparent stain, which was the perfect match. I also "opted" to use a short paint brush, and was able to paint a nice even coat in between the beams. My pergola looks NEW again! Love these products. Your Customer Service employees in the paint department are knowledge, were very helpful, and always willing to assist. Wish we had a HD on our side of town!!!!

While this stuff, despite being "Natural" and "Transparent" does have a slight tint. But it is very agreeable. It actually improves the natural look of our wood! We've used it on two fences now. The first, the developer put in some cheap crud, allegedly redwood. It was warped, splitting and crummy looking for Redwoodwod. After forcing the developer to replace about 12 boards, we declared victory. Instructions recommend brushing this on. Used the 5" brushes. Came out looking terrific. Hired Fence company for new Redwood fence on another property. A better grade of wood, came out beautiful. Brushing, plan. one Gal. Each 16 feet. But We put it on heavy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable Wood Finish Product Refinished the 2 decks in my backyard last weekend. I have been using the Behr premium transparent weatherproofing Cedar Naturaltone no. 501 product for many years. Each application has continued to provide protection for many years. Cleanup is a breeze. I would highly recommend it to all. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't purchase this if you live in the NR Couple of issues with this stain. 1. Very difficult to apply, it had a lot of streaking. If you are familiar with Oil Stains, you will hate this stain. 2. Everywhere on the deck that was exposed to the rain is now pealing off the deck. The stain was applied on a new cedar deck in August, we had a lot rain this year in the NW and it is now March. That is 8 months. The good thing, we can strip it with house water pressure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth I've used this product two times on my redwood deck - 3 year ago and now. It applies well, seals great. The deck looks beautiful - much nicer than the product I used previously - and the finish lasts 2 or 3 years - my deck gets a lot of sun and wear. When the old finish reached its end of life, it cleaned up nicely, though prep is always a chore. I highly recommend this product! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
