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.

Does product bead up in rain?

This question is from 1-gal. Semi-Transparent Weatherproofing Wood Stain Tint Base
Asked by

August 27, 2015
. We just had our deck stripped, cleaned & re-done with the semi-transparent (in "chocolate"). They used 2 thin coats, as per instructions, 4 hrs. in between coats. It looks fantastic! It is raining right now, and unlike other products we've used in the past, the water is not beading up on this new finish. Is it supposed to, or were the thin coats of product TOO thin? If so, can another thin coat be applied once the deck is thoroughly dried out? Thank you!!

We also applied the semi-transparent weatherproofing wood stain in chocolate using two coats. I have noticed that the rain does not bead up on the wood surface either, unlike other products we have used in the past. We will keep an eye on it to see if that turns out to be a problem with longevity.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 138 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 11, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Does not last even 1 winter I stained a new deck in the summer of 2016 with this product and it is already peeling. Very dissatisfied! I used Cabot stain in the past but my deck builder recommended Behr. I'm going back to Cabot. April 15, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by One year wonder I researched the heck out of this. Used to use Cabot, but they changed the stain. I always prep my deck carefully, and did so this time as well. Had perfect weather to apply. After a very mild winter in SW Connecticut, its peeling already. At least I didnt waste my time putting it on my other decks.... June 13, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by sticky on deck after a week in California sun I used this a week ago, two coats, to coat a deck. After a week the deck is sticky and shows foot prints. It has been warm to hot here in Santa Barbara. I'm disappointed and now check the reviews and find my situation is typical. Let's see how it holds up. June 5, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst deck stain available I stained 3 decks at my house. Approx. 300 sq ft. 10 months ago, it is all peeling off. It was all new cedar. Do not use this product. June 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent after 2 years I used this stain about two years ago, on new timbers on a long retaining wall. Behr stain was recommended by the contractor who built the wall. The stain is holding up beautifully. The horizontal surface on the top of the wall now has mildew that needs to be cleaned, but that is to be expected on any outdoor surface. The vertical timbers look as good as they did when freshly stained. Note that I did prep the wall exactly following the instructions on the stain, using Behr #63 Wood Cleaner and applying two coats of stain. I doubt you can expect great results without prepping properly. I think the Behr stain did a better job than the Sherwin William stain I used on the deck. April 11, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by didn't last a year I had a new cedar deck built on the back of my house and I waited a few months for it to cure in the environment. After a few months i cleaned the deck with their deck cleaner and applied the stain. At first it looked great,. After a Chicago winter at the start of Spring it started to peel. Now at the end of June significant portions of this stain are peeling off and I am having to plan to pressure wash it off and apply another brand. Very dissapointed. May 22, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by How does this stuff get 3.5 stars? It seems the reviews are very polarized on this product - either 5 stars or 1 star. After not reading the reviews and applying the product to deck and railing I am really regretting not reading reviews until after I already applied the product. After sitting 7 days in 70-80 degree temps the product still felt a tacky / sticky. After 2 days of using the deck product is already beginning to peel in high traffic areas of the deck. Most of the 5 star reviews seem to come from applications that involve sheds, fences, and swings. Most of the negative reviews seem to come from deck / flat applications. I would suggest that while the product may have merit on non - contacted surfaces, I would STRONGLY recommend against it on areas with foot traffic. I think the sticky / tacky feel causes the product to get ripped off of wood by shoe soles as the friction to the rubber is greater than the adhesion to the wood and causes the (in Behr's words) "semitransparent film that enhances the wood's natural patterns" to become the (my words) "semitransparent film that peels off in blotchy patches to reveal the contrast between bare wood and stained wood" June 3, 2016
