Q:Grabbing the can and reading clear and transparent I didn’t expect this to yellow in spots. 1 can I remove this product once applied or 2 can I use a solid stain over this.

Answer This Question

A:  Hello, thank you for your question. I'm sorry to hear that the finish did not turn out as expected. The Transparent Finish will have a slight tint for UV protection. Once applied, you can remove it using a wood finish stripper. You can also, use a Solid Color Wood Stain over it. Please reach out to us directly if you have any other questions or concerns. Our Customer Care team is happy to help! -Giovanna

    Q:Can you thin down Behr transparent waterproof wood finish. I think mine might have been subject to some freezing. It appears to be ok, it is just slightly congealed. I have used it on some test pieces and seems ok just thick. What is your advice?

    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi Mary, thank you for your question. As it turns out, we don't recommend thinning the Premium Transparent Wood Finish. Instead, it's best to thoroughly stir the contents for 3-5 minutes, which should result in a watery-like/liquid consistency. If this does not resolve the consistency, we recommend replacing this with a new container. Please reach out to us directly if you need further assistance. Our customer care team is happy to help you! - Randy

      Q:Can I apply with pump up sprayer?

      Answer This Question

      A:  Hi Justd, thank you for your question. As it turns out, we don't recommend applying the Premium Semi-Transparent Wood Finish with a pump sprayer. Instead, an airless sprayer can be used to apply the stain in small sections, lightly saturating the surface and back brushing to prevent puddling, remove excess, and evenly distribute the stain. Have a great day! - Randy

        Q:I bought the transparent, applied it in a small area and it isn’t transparent and didn’t dry transparent. Can I exchange it for something that is transparent? The employee told me it was transparent and can seal hand painted wood. It changed the paint

          Not clear, peels, do not buy
          This is all around terrible product. Followed instructions and the color is uneven and peeling off already after it dried. I painted my whole fence with this crap, now I have to remove it and start all over—with a DIFFERENT product (obviously).

          Hello, thank you for your review. I'm so sorry to hear about the trouble you ran into with our Transparent Waterproofing Wood Finish. We want our customers to be happy with their projects, and we can understand your disappointment. To fix the fence without taking off the stain, I recommend removing any loose coating and cleaning the surface with our All-In-One Wood Cleaner to encourage even absorption of the stain and ensure the proper adhesion. Once dry, touch up the bare areas and apply a thin coat for uniformity. Please note that this will deepen the stain and impact the opacity. Your satisfaction is important to us, and we appreciate your feedback. Please reach out to us directly so we can learn more about your project and help turn this around. We look forward to hearing from you! -Lina Behr
            The sealer was very easy to apply. I put it in a garden sprayer, sprayed it on the fence, wiped it around with a rag, and it turned out wonderful.

            Holy yellow color. This stain absolutely utterly ruined my doors. I'm appalled. I used expensive hardwood and it's all for nothing. I'm so mad.

            Hello Elizabeth, thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review! I'm sorry to hear that the color of your doors didn't quite meet your expectations. However, please don't worry - we want to help! To get your door project back on track, I suggest removing the current stain, giving the surface a thorough clean with our All-In-One Wood Cleaner, and then reapplying the stain in a new color. Alternatively, you can simply cover this stain with a solid color coating instead. Our Customer Care team is always ready to help you with any further assistance you may need; your satisfaction is our top priority. I hope you have a fantastic day! -Christina Behr
              Definitely not clear
              I took a beautiful piece of exterior wood, and it turned it yellow, hiding most all of the grain, this is the product that the Home Depot associate said was best for my project. I wish i would’ve bought a different product from a different manufacturer. I have not been having the best luck with Behr lately. They are overpriced for the quality product that they are now producing. I guess it’s back to Benjamin Moore.

              Hi TomR, thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear about your experience using the Transparent Waterproofing Exterior Wood Finish. This stain does have a slight tint to help with UV protection. However, the coating should still be transparent and not yellow.

                TURNS WOOD DECKS YELLOW!!
                Purchase this product because Olympic was out of stock of the clearcoat. I thought that the clearcoat would just be applied and look normal, boy was wrong! As soon as I open up the can, it had a yellow tint to it, so I started stirring it. When I applied it, it was not easy to apply and took some time for it to be coated on the wood. I waited over three days to dry. As soon as the water started, hitting my wood deck, it started turning yellow as you could see in the pictures. Awful product.

                  Only use on pine
                  This product is incredibly uniform. It's labelled as a "clear, transparent" sealer. If you appreciate the beauty of cedar, this is not for you. Even after a LOT of sanding (belt and palm)... it seems to have deeply stained the underlying wood. I'm incredibly unhappy with this product. In the image, you can see the Behr on the left, Thompsons' Water Seal in the middle, and untreated cedar on the right.

                    NOT CLEAR! It is an opaque butterscotch color
                    OMG, I could not believe they call this "clear". I put this product on my log cabin and it is definitely more of an orange STAIN. I thought it must have been a mismarked batch, so I called customer service. They said the UV chemicals they use give it this color and it will be the same on all of their UV protected products! Why call it CLEAR then???!!!

                    Hi GregK, thank you for your review. I'm very sorry to hear your color didn't turn out as expected. Our goal is to help ensure our customers have a positive experience with our products, so I appreciate your honest feedback. I can understand how there might be confusion with the wording of "clear" as an untinted product. The "clear" finish refers to the level of transparency of the product, not the color. A good example of this is how Jell-O is available in a variety of colors but is completely clear. There are other products on the market that are clear and colorless but will most likely not have UV protection included, as that is typically what gives a clear stain color. In any case, your customer satisfaction is important to us. Please reach out to us directly if you need further assistance; our Customer Care team is happy to help! -Lina Behr
                      Looks great, but definitely not a clear finish.
                      Although this product is labeled as a clear finish, it actually produced a beautiful caramel color on the pressure treated lumber we used for our deck. Really happy with the look and ease of application.

                        Chose this stain as part of a home renovation project for shutters, porch pole and front door. Behr was recommended due to its "richness". Excellent coverage and very pleased with the final product.
