Can you apply this stain over wood that had a previous oil based stain applied. The oil based stain in on siding that was applied 14 years ago
Asked by: Nancy
I'm gonna have to defer to Paintpro (Kevin) and I quote him: "There are a couple of ways to achieve this: 1. UseBEHR PREMIUM no. 64 Wood Stain & Finish Stripper to remove any stain that has not already chipped off. This will remove the oil stain and provide a fresh surface for the new stain. Follow the directions and make sure that the surface is thoroughly rinsed and dry before applying any new product. I have used this product several times and can vouch for its consistency in getting the job done. 2.Sand down the deck floor with a drum sander (like used with hardwood floor refinishing) to expose new raw wood. Note: countersink any nails that are stick out before sanding. This will also make the surface very smooth and looking almost new again. I have used this method as well and was pleasantly surprised with the results. When it comes time to apply the new stain – the BEHR PREMIUM STAIN is the best choice. With its advanced 100% acrylic formula and self-priming properties you can’t go wrong. Apply two thin coats to allow for the stain particles to penetrate the surface and soak into the wood fibers. One more thought: You might consider removing the existing wood and replacing it with a composite decking material that doesn’t need to be stained. This will be considered as an investment and will hold up to any extreme environment conditions. Hope this helps. paiintpro" \ (Kevin HD ATL)

Does this stain have a red tint to it

Asked by: bonbyg
If anything it has a more chocolate tint with a unique architectural aesthetic. Pure class(ic) stain with beautiful contrast and hence, enhances and complements all colors in its foreground. I haven't had to touch up this stain on my cedar fencing for years and its still going strong with no end in sight.....whereas my very similar cedar fence that stood before it (since demolished) that was located in the exact same location of hot beatdown sun and which I had stained a classic tasteful and pro-grade dark red stain had faded and looked tired within 2 years. I am beyhond pleased with my choice since I felt it was a gamble choosing this color with even the fence guys doubting my choice, but once it was done. We were all impressed and sold on the color. TopTip: 1)"its all in the prep"....make sure its not cold outside when you apply, or else you'll have a big mess on your hands like blistering paint not adhering and forever drying. Thats if you apply in the cold weather. A roller looks nicer than brush. Thats a good thing. 2) choose solid (SC-104) over semi-transparent.....2 coats of SC = 1 coat of solid (SC) at least that was my observation and I saw no glazing effect (increased depth in the stain) when I carefully applied 2 coats of the just ended up mimicking 1 coat of SC (solid). Sorry, Behr, but I call it as I see it and I did not see a difference that could ever justify the extra time and money in using the ST unless you were doing a light first coat. That being said I'd still apply 3 coats of the solid and in return you'll have a fence that will be maintenance free for years to come as it has been for mine. 3) If you're building a new fence, cedar is the way to go, whereas if you insist on treated pine, the treated pine with its more thirsty porous areas will take up the stain in a splotchy fashion that isnt exactly a good look, and the more you try to stain over the areas that just wont take up stain, (multiple hot spots), it will have amateur botch job written all over it. Lastly, stain the boards before you hang 'em. Trust me, its sooo much easier. 4 sawhorses in a semi-controlled environment like a garage and applying on a horizontal neck friendly angle all yields a positive experience. you're good to go.

How much coverage in a gallon? (New wood)

Asked by: FrogMan
We bought 5 gallons and applied two coats on a huge deck along with a wall, steps and fence. It seems to go a long way. Great coverage!

I having been reading that this paint can peel after a year. Is there a common reason for this?

Asked by: John
Hi John, thank you for reaching out to us. The key to a successful project is heavily due to the prep work before applying the top coat. Be sure to follow all prep steps and application steps carefully and your project will remain looking beautiful!

8 oz. #SC104 Cordovan Brown Solid Color Waterproofing Stain and Sealer Sample is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 94.
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.]

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 3 out of 5 by from 4 Months later, wood is absorbing water I applied this on my deck, about 25 years old. The deck was previously coated with a waterproofing product from a different manufacturer. I saw the advertisements for Behr having longer durability than others, and I decided to give it a try. 4 months later, rain water is not beading, but appears to be soaking into the wood. I used it according to instructions, the old clear waterproofing product was off, and no water was beading on the deck. Applied two coats of this product, used just about as much as is suggested based on the square footage for my deck, so I assume the thickness of the application was was at least in the right ballpark. I should add that the deck is barely used. We use our screened in porch, and the deck is next to it, but I only go out there to use the grill, even though that part of the deck is quite large. I think the color of the product is amazing - the deck looks spectacular. The only thing is that it doesn't appear to be 'weather proofing' the wood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stain Our house was built 28 years ago. We have used many different brands of waterproofing, stain, wood preserver. They only lasted 1 year but we made it last 2. Wood would turn black in areas and bleach out from sun in other's. We always power washed first, which is an awful job to begin with. Just happen to stumble on to Behr Stain and Waterproffing. It has been on 6 years now and going strong! Wish we knew about this product many moons ago. We put it on by it would soak in better..worth it!

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 5 out of 5 by from Behr Works GREAT--Ease up on Power-Washing I plan to enter a more complete review later. I applied Behr Semi-Transparent Weatherproofing almost 10 years ago to a very lengthy fence and decks surrounded by wood railings; then, just last year, to part of a fence. We're finishing the fence shortly. Behr products are always simple to use, reliable, durable, and the best on the market at any price! As I was reading some of the reviews tonight, I noted that many negative results reported their diligence in power-washing prior to application. Yet, the All-in-One Wood Cleaner prep product warns against vigorous power-washing/-rinsing as this may harm the wood. I would imagine staining to be less successful with injured wood.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buyer Beware! I purchased the BEHR semi-transparent All-in-One wood stain and weatherproofing Cordovan Brown ST104. I also purchases the All-in-One wood cleaner which I used prior to application. I applied the product in the Fall of 2013 as per instructions. The following Spring the whole deck stain completely peeled off. I would not recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST LARGE PROJECT WOOD STAIN #1 CONSUMER REPORTS wood stain waterproofing. I use this and solid color depending on the project. Both have good coverage and very long life. They do not flake off and as far as I can see, little to no fading in sunlight. I've used for fencing, decks, play structures, storage shed buildings and outdoor wood furniture. Never disappointed.
