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.

Can a deck be stripped, cleaned and weatherproofing finish be applied in the same day? Or are drying times needed between each step?
Asked by: wonderning
Hello, Thank you for your interest in our products. It mainly depends on how quick the deck drys after stripping and cleaning it. We want to make sure the deck is completely dry before applying our wood finish. Normally we recommend letting it dry for a minimum of 24 hours after cleaning it. If there is any moisture left on the surface with the finish is being applied, then it could potentially cause the coating to bubble. Best regards, Kevin

When applied to a wood surface, it will not dry clear (as stated) but in fact, leaves a muddy yellowish tint that is very undesirable, especially on lighter surfaces. I built and custom stained $400 worth of cedar planters over a period of 3 weeks and managed to ruined all of them in one day with this product.

I recently rebuilt my 25 year old deck. It's built with treated 2x6 pine. Following recommendations, I allowed it to age 6 months before applying the finish. I had applied traditional petroleum based stains in the past with great results, but purchased this product based on reviews, ease of application and clean-up, and the idea that the water based products were more ecologically friendly. Well... it was a mistake. I had read that you had to be careful to apply thin coats so that no peeling would take place, and followed the instructions about preparation and application carefully. I was very lucky in that it didn't rain for an entire week after application (I live in Louisiana, that's almost a drought here). Of course, it did eventually rain, and the deck that is under the dripline of the house has peeled in sections making an ugly mess. It's obvious that this product does not soak into the wood: it's just a coat of paint on top. Wherever it's peeled, it plain unstained wood beneath. I'm now trying to strip the paint from the two rows that have experienced the peeling. The first product I used hasn't worked, but I'm trying some others now. Replacing the boards in the 2 rows is an option, but I'd have to wait 6 months again before reapplying; I'm concerned that they wouldn't match the other stained (painted) boards.

I used this same BEHR product and color (Clear 500-N) to stain my new 200+ foot fence about (3-years ago), and am using it again on lattice where I am building a new raised garden. It was surprising to me that the color of the 3-years old fence - exposed to the elements for this lengthily period - remains largely consistent to the color of new BEHR Waterproofing Wood Finish product I just purchased. For both projects I used a paint sprayer for most of the application on the lattice, and all of the application for the fence. A 'quality, long-lasting product' well worth the cost; which is a lot less than some other paint companies! (e.g.: Sherwin Williams)

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 4 out of 5 by from Looks good Bought this stuff in the Golden Honey color. Took roughly 1 gallon to do two coats on a 30'x10' deck with 4 posts. First coat went on smoothly with no issues using a deck pad. Dried fast and after double the recommended dry time I put the second coat on. Second coat dried tacky and took a few days to fully cure but it doesn't seem tacky now. Color is nice but it shows foot prints like crazy by the stairs. All in all this did a good job of evening out the color but you can still see imperfections or manufacture stamps on the wood which is obvious because its transparent.

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.]
