Questions & Answers

We used natural NO.500 and the store doesn't have this color. They stated Clear 500N is the same. They look different.

Asked by: Vic
Behr Representative, Ran in to this same problem. Is there a recipe for tinting (how much tint needs added)? I have half a project done, and they are not the same at all. Not sure if individual store will know the formula to tint, so I am wondering if you can help. CP

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.
Asked by: teamedup
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: KennethB
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. Natural Clear Transparent Waterproofing Wood Finish is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 848.

I had my deck power washed before and applied it 2 weeks later. If anyone is wondering. I put it on in 87 degree temps and it rained 5 hours later and it didn't ruin it. The water started beading when it rained. It's easy to apply and the color is great. I would use this again. I took me and my mom about 7 hours total. We had to stop on the first day because we ran out of this. I'm so glad I didn't pay someone $2000 to do this for me. It looks good for an amateur. There's a couple of spots that are bad, because the coat overlapped. But all in all I'm happy. Just do one coat. That's all you need.

Each year I used a different waterproofing product to coat the logs on the outside of my home. I went to Home Depot at the recommendation of a Behr rep I tried the waterproofing wood finish and clear. Two coats went on very easy and the poles went from bleached out to a beautiful honey color. Thank you!

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.

This is the third project I've done and the color hasn't even come close to what it was supposed to be. Luckily Home Depot made good on the horrible product because behr wouldn't do anything for me

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice results and easy to work with I have been working on our fence, completely refinishing what we have built. Started by sanding and then hand painted this product over more than 500 linear feet of at least 6foot fencing. This product absorbed very quickly into the wood, and in most cases I was in at least 2 coats and in most places I am going with 3 because I like the finish, and I am hoping to not have to do this again for a very long time. The result is very beautiful and puts a finishing detail into our yard. It makes it feel much more finished, tropical and lush with our landscaping.

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.

"It's too pink", "Looks and spreads like Paint", "Stayed tacky for days"...Well I like it. I didn't experience anything like this. I sanded the surface and cleaned the wood with soapy bleach water, rinsed it well with high water pressure and scrubbed & rinsed one more time. Then I let it dry for 24 hours. It was a lot of work to prep because the wood was so weathered, and there was a coat of poly on it that flaked something awful. But once I started staining I was impressed. Mind you the pics show only one coat and weathered areas. But a little tung oil will take care of that; add another coat it's going to be beautiful! I think the chairs and tables may be about 15 years old. I will post the end result soon.

The finish is beige in the can, and is golden brown on the wood. I bought it for an 8 foot high cedar fence and although I noticed the liquid was beige when I stirred and poured it into the tray, I thought it would dry clear. By the time I realized it was drying an orange color, it was too late and I had to proceed with the product for the entire 100 foot length. If it runs, it leaves a colored trail, like a paint or stain. I wish I had believed a few other reviews that stated this product is not clear, but thought that perhaps there was a glitch in production and BEHR had corrected it. Unfortunately, they apparently know this product is not clear, as stated, but don't care to correct it. My good opinion of this company has downgraded.
