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.

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.

Is this tranparent weatherproofing wood stain tint base used before or after you paint

Asked by: Barbara
Hello Barbara, Thanks for your question. That's right--this is a standalone product, so there wouldn't be a coating under or over it. Best wishes for your project!

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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product is a nightmare. STAY AWAY!!!!!!! Applied stain as per Behrs instructions. The stain ... This product is a nightmare. STAY AWAY!!!!!!! Applied stain as per Behrs instructions. The stain has a problem curing with staying sticky(see all other reviews with same problem, which Im sure Behr is aware of)) After recommended 72HR cure time. Its been 2 weeks and stain is still sticky, taking on stains from shoes and it gets carried into my house and gets on my wood floors.Behr told me to wash it with warm water and soap and it should solve the problem , guess what it didnt! still sticky.Behrs warranty is a joke as it dont cover labor ,which is 90% of the cost of staining a deck. Absolute complete nightmare. Cant use the deck!!

It is PAINT, not stain! I used it to stain my new, clean, dry cedar privacy fence. I followed the instructions and applied two light coats with a Wagner sprayer and back brushed if it puddled. However, it does not penetrate the wood at all, it is not semi-transparent, and now I am left with 70 feet of "painted" fence!!! The pictures tell the story. Notice on one of them you can see the Behr "paint" on the left side, and on the right side is a different semi-transparent stain that actually penetrates the wood and shows the wood grain. I will be taking my 4 gallons of "paint" back to HD for a full refund.

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 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.

Within a year it started peeling off of my deck! It was ok for pieces that were vertical. But any horizontal surface started peeling. I friend also used it with the same results. We both investigated stains before using this. All sources that we looked at including Consumer Reports had this as one of the highest rated stains. Through the 22 years we've had our deck we've used an Ace brand and Olympic. Both of these outperformed the Behr stain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deck Makeover At first I was nervous that we would only be able to replace our deck because of the previous products used. The original product was a textured product that is actually in quite of a bind right now due to poor performance. Anyhow, it was an absolute nightmare to remove. After several trash bags full of the chipping paint, our only option was a pressure wash. That still did not do all of the work so we had to have the whole deck sanded. By now Im sure that you can imagine the time this consumed for about 400 sq ft. Finally it was time to stain the deck and we decided to go with semi transparent because the wood actually had some good life to it. The first coat went on and I was not sure that I was loving the color, after a few hours the second coat was applied and BAM! it looked really nice. I will say that it did require an extra gallon but i kind of expected that. It has only been 2 days now but it is looking nice and cant wait to actually be able to use my deck again. Hopefully it holds up for a few years but as of now i dont have much to go off of other than application. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
