Looked Great for a few months, then the rain came.
Read the directions and applied accordingly. Looked great for a few months, then a light shower ruined it. Water beaded up like I would expect it to do. Shortly after the rain, black spots started appearing everywhere. Tried cleaning it, but the only way to remove the spots was sanding it. Beyond Disappointed. Pictures included. Any advice is welcomed. Will not be using Behr anytime soon.

Hi Scott - Thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear about the black spots on your project! Based on your picture, it looks like mold or mildew may be growing on the surface. To remove it, I recommend cleaning the surface with our All-In-One Wood Cleaner (you can use it diluted or at full strength for more stubborn spots). If the black spots are still present after using the cleaner at full strength, a stronger mold/mildew remover may be needed to clean the surface. Please feel free to reach out to us directly for further assistance with this. We're happy to help. - Sara Behr

    Have been using this product on my deck yearly since it was built 10 years ago. Have had no issues. Easy to apply, but need to be done in long continuous strokes across the entire length of a board or there will be decidedly pronounced overlap marks on the deck.

    Be aware this is not transparent at all
    If you want real transparent look somewhere else, this will make your wood darker, I can't tell about durability, very easy to paint a fence either with a roller or a brush, I used 2 gallons on a 10x20x10 fence on one side and it was not enough, have to buy another gallon to paint what is left and then a real transparent stain so our wood doesn't get darker

    Hi FenceGuy,

    Thank you for reviewing Behr DECKplus Transparent Waterproofing Wood Finish. I'm very sorry to hear about the color issue experienced, as it certainly isn't what we want our customers to go through.

    Although the wood finish has a small amount of tint added for UV protection, it should not have changed the color drastically. To change the color, the stain can be removed with a stain stripper, power washer, and by sanding. Alternatively, it can be topcoated with a solid color wood stain.

    Customer satisfaction is very important to us, and I encourage you to contact Behr directly for further assistance. We'd love to learn more about your project and find the best way to help.

      Been using this product for years. I only used the clear. It's turned the wood a half of shade darker. When finished it's beautiful. It helps protect the wood from turning that grayish ugly look.

      Last summer we bought this product for a new 12' x 20' cedar deck to maintain the look of natural wood. Followed the application instructions. After one winter the product is failing. The coating is peeling, and there is mold growth on the decking. I will now need to strip and sand my deck. Find another product that will hold up. Don't waste your time or money. Buy a higher quality product.

      Hello Allen98270, we appreciate your feedback. We're sorry to hear your transparent stain is peeling and not holding up as you expected it to; that's not the experience we want our customers to have with our products. To fix the peeling on your deck, we would recommend removing all the loose stain before cleaning your surface with our All-In-One Wood Cleaner (to prep and clean the mold off your surface), allowing it to dry for at least 24 hours, touching up the bare areas, and doing an overall recoat to reseal your surface. If more than half of your coating has peeled, we'd recommend completely stripping it off before cleaning and re-staining your cedar deck. Customer satisfaction is important to us. So, please feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions or need assistance. We're always happy to help. Have a marvelous Monday! -Joanna Behr

        I make my outdoor signs using redwood and finish them using BEHR Waterproofing so the will hold up in the weather. I ship them all over the US and even have some in the Virgin Islands. I get lots of 5 stars.

        I really like this stain. Nice color and goes on easy. It says clear but it's actually a really nice natural wood color. Being on my own makes for a lot of time restraints so it would be a little nicer if it didn't require 2 coats for full cure but definitely not a deal breaker. Great quality for a decent price.

        This transparent, clear waterproofing is NOT transparent or clear! It is a brown stain although it does not say it anywhere on the can. I applied it with a pump sprayer as if it were clear and now have brown overspray on everything! I am now going to have to buy paint cover all the overspray! What a mess!

        Hi Tom,

        Thank you for reviewing our wood finish. While this wood finish is transparent, it does contain very little pigmentation to help protect the wood from harmful UV rays. To remove the overspray, the wood finish can be lightly sanded off once it's dry, or you can use an overspray remover product. For further assistance, please feel free to reach out to us directly - we'd be happy to help! - Sara Behr

        I have used two "top quality" products and this product has been the best performing by far. I will not use any other brand other than BEHR any more. The stains and finishes last longer and protect better.

        Our company uses Behr exclusively for all our staining needs, we prefer the premium transparent 500 and recommend it as the stronger choice to hold up to weather for our customers but when a customer thinks the 500 premium stain shades are to strong and they want a lighter look we use the 400 series. We have work crews through out the USA and would like to help Behr customers and the Behr company in any way we can. John Doyle owner 850-543-5142 john@woodstocklog.com

          Read the label
          My only caveat is that it takes a loooooonnnnng time to dry. 72 hours before treading upon. My wife just about got stuck to the deck because she didn't believe me. Applies easily with a roller

              The sealer brought out the wood natural colors leaving a uniform color to wood. First tried to roller but that was not successful so bought a small hand held spray that worked and really fast. I could spray both sides in about 15 to 20 minutes per 8 foot panel. I liked to color so much I pressured washed an 8 panel side fence. getting ready to spray Behr sealer, just bought 6 more gallons to do both sides.

                  This is a really good product that I have used for 20 years. Preparing the surface is key. We usually apply it to the deck floor every 3 years and the rails every 6. My deck is 25 years old and still holding up.
