Customer Questions & Answers

How many sq ft will 1 gal of Behr Premium Wood Stain (semi transparent) cover?

Deck was previously stained but has been stripped.
Asked by: Anonymous
I used 1.3 cans for the two coats of about 400 square feet. DON'T BUY THIS STAIN - it looks like solid not a semi and stays tacky for weeks.

can this behr product be used on a deck that has another waterproofer stain on it?

Asked by: 1234
I would suggest removing the old waterproofing stain first using either a stain stripper or an orbital sander and a medium grit sandpaper. If you don't, your new stain may not adhere correctly and could begin peeling ahead of the advertised warranty.

Appled in summer, how long before stained deck can handle foot traffic?

Asked by: jd105
Once it is "dry." For my family it took the product 3 weeks to "cure" and not be sticky to the touch.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Avoid at all costs So far I've applied this twice this spring. The first time I sprayed it on and it never cured (even after weeks it was sticky). I was told I must have over applied and should strip it and start over . After striping, cleaning and prepping again I applied two thin coats with a brush to the specifications on the can. Again I'm left with a very sticky deck. Now I've spent over $200 just to make my deck unusable. I can't describe how disappointing and discouraging this has been. I'm an avid DIYer and this is easily the worst product I've ever used. I wish I would have read more reviews before purchasing. DO NOT BUY THIS.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from poor coverage We were quite disappointed. This Stain does not cover cedar well at all. instead of a nice blue as is shown on the Behr and Home Depot Web pages, it was just a dull gray. the wood grain did not show as well as we liked either. unfortunately we will be returning this to the store and going with a solid stain color. This may cover a light pine colored wood only.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Glow On Wood Fencing Haven't gone wrong with BEHR coatings yet. The All-In-One Wood Stain & Sealer really lets the wood grain pop out. Covers well, provides a solid film that looks like it will last. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 11 Months. Not 6-8 Years After reading the reviews on Home Depot I decided to try the Behr Semi-transparent deck stain tint base. I chose the chocolate color. I used the stain on a 400 sq ft NEW deck and a 600 sq ft previously stained playset/climbing structure. I allowed the new wood to season for 10 months. Both structures were properly prepared according to the instructions on the back of the can and I used all the recommended Behr products. I stained both structures in the fall of 2015 according to the directions on the back of the can. After staining it took 3 weeks for the product to “cure.” For 3 weeks my children could not use the playset/climbing structure and my family could not use the deck. During these 3 weeks the stain was tacky and would leave visible marks if touched. After the product finally cured it repelled water and worked. This fall of 2016 (only 11 months after application) the stain was bubbling, peeling, flaking, and visible mold was showing. The product only lasted 11 months; 1 of those moths was the “curing/hardening” months. This product did NOT last 6-8 years as advertised.

I've applied 3 thin coats of this product to some tongue & groove pine beadboard planks that are going up on the ceiling (i.e. no foot traffic). If you so much as look at this stain the wrong way it will come off. As other reviewers have mentioned, the stain is more a (non-bonding) paint than a penetrating stain. You will be able to rub it off with your fingers or a napkin - I cannot imagine what would happen if this was used in a floor/deck application - it would not last an hour. For my circumstance it will do as I don't intend to walk on the ceiling - I just hope that it does what it's supposed to in terms of weatherproofing - but time will tell.
