Answer: 
Hello notsure,
Thanks for your interest in our wood stain. We would only recommend applying this product to bare wood as it adheres by penetrating into the surface. Therefore, any previous sealers or wood stains would need to be removed with a product like our No. 64 Stripper and then cleaned with our No. 63 Wood Cleaner. Best wishes for your project!

Not enough stain for two coats.

This question is from 1-gal. #ST-104 Cordovan Brown Semi-Transparent Weatherproofing Wood Stain
Asked by

September 20, 2016
We were told we would only need one coat for approximately 1700 ft2, so we purchased 5 gallons per the HD sales clerk's calculations. When we got home, we saw that the recommendation on the container was two coats, which means we would have needed another 5 gallons. I can't buy Behr brand stain within 200 miles of my home. Is it ok to do one coat this year, and the second coat next year? How long can we wait before applying a second coat?

Hello Sofa,
I’m sorry to hear you were advised only one coat was needed for out Semi-Transparent Stain. However, in order for our stain to perform as expected and withstand all the weather elements, it requires 2 coats. We would not recommend exceeding more than 2 weeks before applying the second coat. You can also purchase the Semi-Transparent Stain online. If you have any additional questions, please Read More

Answer: 
Hello AlanM,
Thanks for your question. This stain actually requires the addition of tinting colorant before being used. As a suggestion, you might check our wood stains brochure for a color that is close to your wood color so that you could attain a more seamless finish to protect the wood. Hope this helps. Well wishes for your project!

Rated 3.1 out of 5 by 401 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Overall a good product I bought this "semi-transparent" stain, but I wish I would have read a couple reviews first. There was no problem with the product, it covered well and the color was true to the sample, but it is more of a paint than a stain. I applied 2 coats, expecting the product to be absorbed, but it didn't quit absorb as much as I thought and I was left with a surface that looks more painted than stained. The clean up was easy with soap and water and the pump sprayer I used did not end up needing to be thrown away as I expect after use. Overall the product is good but I would caution buyers to buy the transparent stain if they are looking for a true stained appearance! April 13, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Horrible coverage If you are going to use this on an old fence ... Pass ! It covers horribly . Inconsistent color. It took 12 gallons to do a 6 foot by 140 ft fence . I spoke to other customers with similar experiences . It took 25 gallons to do her fence . 220 ft by 6 ft front and back. Opt instead for a solid color as the semi transparent is horrible . It may do fine on new decks with perfect finishes but for Anthing that is older and has to be pressure washed and stained it is a waste of money . Almost $400 to stain the fence. Woman who works at Home Depot said " it will cover :400to 500 sq/ft .... I am gonna ask her on what planet was that because it sure ain't on this one ! September 6, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Used a lot of stain I realized after I purchased that this is semi-transparent stain which I think is where I went wrong. I bought this for a pallet project, and it used a ton of the stain. In the end I ended up "painting" it on and leaving it, which got me the color I wanted. It took about 9 coats before I "painted" it. I think with a few more coats I would have been happy with the color, but was worried with the sample size I wouldn't have enough. Still, the sample size is a great value for the price! September 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice color This was the exact shade I was looking for! The only problem I ran into is that pallet boards soak up a lot of stain. I ended up "painting" it on and leaving it that way which got the exact color I wanted. I realize now writing this review this is "semi-transparent" stain which is probably where I went wrong. Still got it to work for what I needed. (I used this color for the top of my project) September 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Shade I ended up using two coats for my pallet project. One coat worked well, you could still see the grain of the wood, but I wanted my project brighter so did two coats. Got the sample size and still have some left over. Its a great deal! September 20, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by garbage product. buying this will cost you 3 times as much in a year or two just to get it off I listened to the sales rep, then followed all of the instructions and had my deck completely prepped and ready to coat with what i thought was a premium product. What a waste of money and time. It is supposed to have a six year guarantee, it didn't even last a year before it started peeling. It seriously peels like 30 year old paint. Now i have to spend more money and time just to get it off. And the guarantee is worthless without original receipt. Who keeps a receipt for 2 years for a $40 can of deck stain? Either stand behind your product or don't. August 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product Great product. Used this semi transparent stain on our deck railing. It last about 2-3 years in our North Idaho climate. Good coverage and stain stays suspended in carrier if you stir every 30-45 minutes. Stain in early morning or cool weather as stain dries quickly and results are more even when stain is allowed to dry slowly. Price seemed higher than I remembered from 3 years ago ($33/gal) but still a good value. August 9, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Deck looks great Applied Behr Semi-Transparent stain to my deck in Sept 2015. I had cleaned the deck thoroughly with Behr No. 63 All-in-One Wood Cleaner over the prior two weekends. The stain was easy to apply. We used a pad applicator and then back brushed with a paint brush. The first coat dried enough to walk across after a couple of hours, and then we applied a second coat to the horizontal surfaces. The new stain caused the deck to feel tacky or sticky after it had dried, but it was not a significant issue and was less each day until it went away after a good rain. The color closely matched my expectations and looked very uniform. Before and after pictures attached. May 15, 2016
