Customer Questions & Answers

This product (#64) is a "stripper". does that mean that I will essrntially be stripping off the old paint?

Asked by: James
This stripper is for latex semi transparent and transparent stains only. It will not remove paint. There are other products used to remove paint which are caustic and dangerous.

Must product/stripper be neutarlized before re-sealing?

Asked by: Miffer
Yes, directions say you should use the Behr Deck Cleaner after using this product to neutralize, otherwise I don't think stain/sealer would adhere to the wood.

Is it harmful to the vegetation growing around the deck, including the grass?

I need to remove an acrylic stain on my deck. The deck is surrounded by plants and grass. Will the vegatation be harmed by this product?
Asked by: kendit
I have not an issue with my grass or plants dying from this product, be sure to rinse well and rinse your ground area as well. From my experience this worked.

Do I use the Wood Cleaner before I use the Wood Stain and Finish Stripper product? Or After? Or not at all?

Asked by: Douglas
Don't bother w/ the cleaner. The stain remover is the thing to use to remove old stain.

1-gal. Wood Stain and Finish Stripper is rated 2.4 out of 5 by 131.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from WORKS GREAT! Just follow the directions! I don't understand how this has gotten so many low reviews. I used it today and it was PERFECT! We needed to remove semi-transparent stain from our cedar deck railings and spindles. Bought this product along with a small 3 inch roller to apply. Before applying I MISTED the deck with water - just lightly misted, not soaked. Shook product very well and poured into a small paint pan. Wearing gloves and working in small sections of the railings, I rolled this product generously onto the deck rails and spindles and let it sit for at least 10-15 minutes after done applying. Then I used a small work broom with stiff bristles to lightly rub the rails and the stain started coming off in a gloppy mess. Using just a hose on "stream" setting, I sprayed off the product along with all the stain. It literally just washed off the wood. Rinsed until water was clear. Other reviewers must not be doing something right, because this was so EASY and IT REALLY WORKED!! The hardest part is just make sure you don't get it on your skin, but if you are careful then that isn't a problem. Will be using the Behr deck cleaner on it tomorrow to make it really clean and will be ready to stain after that. Definitely works - check out before and after photos.

I read a lot of reviews about this not working, but I didn't have any problems. If anyone had problems, they didn't let it set long enough & didn't keep it wet. I rolled it on & let it set for at least 30 minutes. Right after I rolled it on, I LIGHTLY sprayed it w/ water & that helped keep it wet. Keep it wet people. I had a 8 x 45 porch & it worked as promised. Behr really pushes the warnings about the safety issues & I took all the precautions, but Behr should really warn you about how slippery the stuff is once the old stain starts coming up. VERY SLIPPERY!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stained me deck orange!! I needed something to use to strip stain off my deck. Behr usually has quality products so I thought I'd give this a try. Wow! What a disappointment. I followed instructions to a "T" and it turned my deck orange in some places!! It seems like whenever I put the stripper on the deck, it stained it orange!!! I really hope it isn't stained orange forever! I'm gonna clean the deck with another product/brand to clean all the algae green mold off and I hope it comes off then!! If not I'll be quite upset with Behr especially since I followed instructions!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I should have read the reviews first! I have two coats of Behr deck stain on my 5 year old deck and decided that I wanted to strip it and start over again. I have a dog whose claws put marks in the finish as he takes off running. So, Behrs deck stain? Why not use Behrs Deck Stripper? Two applications later and two hours of wasted time and a borrowed power washer tell me that I should have read the reviews first. This product is marginally better than water. Save your money!!!!!!!!!!! It might be Premium in their eyes but it is sub-standard in mine.

I just tried this product on my painted deck and it works amazing! It removed all the paint easily. After I applied the product and let it sit for an hour, I just brushed it off without any problems. The paint basically just dissolved after which I sprayed the deck. And the end result is as expected: the paint is totally gone and I can now see the original wooden deck without any finishing. Great product!

Don't forget to SHAKE the bottle before use...it does not say that on the label, and I did not realize this till my third pour in the pan that this product is not consistent.....worked ok after that, but it's funny how the small things make a big difference....feel a little ripped off by the bad instruction, from the label and the video.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh Yeah Baby! This stuff is amazing! I was skeptical at first because of all the negative reviews, but Home Depot doesn't have much options so I took a chance on it. Boy does it work! A week after staining our deck my wife decided she did not like the stain color anymore (you guys know how women are). It was either I re-stain it or risk never being able to watch ESPN in peace. I don't know why the negative reviews but it worked flawlessly. If scrubbing with a brush I recommend buying knee pads. I used a scrubbing brush, those green pan scrubbing pads to scrub edges and tight areas. Started applying with a brush but after awhile the chemical ate through the bristles so I had to switch to a roller. Also if you don't shake well enough it will pour out like water. When shaken well it pours out thick like melted wax. Either way works the same. I actually like the liquid unshaken way better because it sits longer on the stain and doesn't dry as quick. Anyway, apply the solution and wait about ten minutes. If the solution drys out before you can scrub just sprinkle with some water to moisten it and scrub. Then rinse off with water hose. Do wear gloves. It burns if you have small cuts or scrapes. Good luck guys...
