Q:Can I add a little either thinner, or acetone, or water to make it thinner? Becouse holding about 6 months it got thicker.

Answer This Question

A:  Hi Melc, thanks for your question. As it turns out, we do not recommend thinning out our Premium Transparent Wood Finish. This stain should have a watery consistency, and if it seems thicker than this, I recommend stirring it for 7-8 minutes and testing it on small area. If stirring doesn't resolve the consistency, I don't recommend using it. If you need further assistance, please feel free to reach out to us directly. Have a great day! -Christina

        Q:We just installed a fence using newly purchased pressure treated lumber (weathershield - MCA). How long do I need to wait before I stain my fence? Since the wood is new, do I need to pressure wash / clean it first or can I stain without cleaning?

        Answer This Question

        A:  Hi FloridaStain, thanks for the question. Pressure-treated wood should have at least 6-8 weeks of drying time before applying our products. Also, I would recommend cleaning the wood with our All-In-One Wood Sealer prior to applying the stain. It will clean the wood, remove and mill glaze, and open the pores of the wood to help with the adhesion of the stain. Have a great day! -Ronald

          Terrible Product
          Our Custom Red Cedar decking was milled for us off of our own property. The beautiful color and grain of the wood was supposed to be our signature attraction to our home After meticulously applying the product to our deck and after less than one year it has totally ruined our deck The product has been peeling and deteriorating at a fast pace! I don’t know whether to try and sand it off or just wait a few more months for it to totally flake away What a disappointment

          Hi Spiker, thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that the coating peeled so soon. That's not normal, and I can understand your disappointment. To get your deck looking beautiful again, I recommend sanding off the loose coating, cleaning the surface with the All-In-One Wood Cleaner and allowing the wood to dry completely. Then, apply two new coats at the recommended spread rate. We appreciate your feedback, and if you need further assistance, please reach out to us directly. Our Customer Care team is happy to help! -Giovanna Behr
            Great
            Used this on my weather beaten fence at the new place a bought. Unbelievable how a power wash and stain can transform things. Stain was easy to apply and would definitely recommend.

              Hi Brenda, thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that our Clear Transparent Waterproofing Wood Finish didn't turn out as expected. Even though the coating is clear, meaning it is see-through, it does have a slight tint added for UV protection. Customer satisfaction is important to us, and we appreciate your feedback. Please reach out to us directly if you need further assistance; our customer care team is happy to help you! -Ronald Behr
                Not the same Color
                Formulaty & color changed. Now smell horrific, no cedar color in can. Looks like the “natural “ (equivalent of just water seal over your wood.) I bought a premixed gallon since the one I bought in January was empty. Right away I notice there was almost no brown orange pigment. HD shook the premixed and I tried to stir it some more. Behr sent a new one right away but exactly the same wrong color. The lighter one of the new color (like Thompsons water seal)

                  The paint went on like a dream. It dried quickly and quite hard one heavy coat. Did the job on a new deck on a new shed very good.

                  definitely not clear
                  Its yellow. Tried it on a piece of cedar before applying it to my whole project based on reviews and this is most definitely not clear or anywhere near it.

                    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
