Tacky after 2 weeks- pollen stuck in top layer
Avoid this Behr waterproofing sealer. I wish I had read the reviews…. Now I’m regretting it. Sanded, stripped, primed, two thin coats. 1) it’s yellow. Luckily I wanted yellow, but be warned- it’s YELLOW. 2) it has been two weeks and it is stick sticky. Can walk on it with bare feet. Pollen dropped and stuck to the deck, now I’ve got a messy looking deck and I fear the only way to save it is to sand it back and use different product. Yay.

Hi Brian, thank you for your review. Sorry to hear that our Clear Transparent Waterproofing Exterior Wood Finish is still tacky after 2 weeks. If the stain is dry but still tacky, I'd recommend gently cleaning a small area with soap and water to see if the stickiness subsides. If it does continue to wash the entire area. If the coating is still tacky after a month, the coating would need to be removed and reapplied. Customer satisfaction is important to us, and we appreciate your feedback.

    Disappointing
    Not a good product, very upset with the shape of my deck just 2 years after use. And the worst part, is that now I am not sure what to do about it. I followed all the steps…prep, priming solution, everything. Now it is peeling like paint, but I don’t think it will be adequate to just touch up and am not confident anything that gets coated over will last. Just a mess.

    Hi there, thank you for your review. Sorry to hear that our Transparent Waterproofing Wood Finish is easily coming off after 6 months. This is not typical, and I can understand your disappointment. To fix the issue I recommend removing the stain by sanding, power washing at a low level, or using a paint/finish stripper Then clean the surface with the All-In-One Wood Cleaner and let it dry, then apply 2 coats of stain per the label directions. 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
      Coming off after a year
      It is literally coming off after only a year. Suppose to be good for 4 years. Can't recommend.

            Not even close to clear!
            As others have mentioned, this product is nowhere near clear. I put it on raw pine that was nearly white and it now is very yellow. It’s horrible. In the picture the table is stained and the bench isn’t to show the difference in color. Very disappointed.

            Hi Whitney, thank you for writing in. I'm so sorry to hear our Premium Clear Transparent Stain didn't turn out how you expected it to. The clear color has additives within it that provide UV protection, giving off a slight yellow hue. Also, depending on what type of wood and the color of it, the stain will absorb differently and vary in appearance. Since you'll need to remove the stain, clean with our All-In-One Wood Cleaner no 63, and reapply a different color, please feel free to reach out to us directly so we can learn more about your project and assist. We look forward to hearing from you. -Michael Behr

              One gallon does not equal 124 ounces!
              The Home Depot website advertises this as one gallon (128 ounces). However, the can actually contains only 124 ounces. Similarly, the one quart size is only 31 ounces.

                Difficult to apply, tacky after 72 hours, use something else.
                First of all, I always use Behr products. I didn't even consider using anything else. I wish I had read the questions first. With this product you have to do entire boards, and not sections. If you do a section, and let the stain dry even a little bit in the middle of a board, you will get bad overlap marks. I've never had a stain do that, even after feathering the end of the section. Followed all directions, applied in low humidity, 80 degrees with recommended pad applicator, 24 hours between coats. Still very tacky after 72 hours. I've seen the same answer from Behr (word for word) in response to the question about remaining tacky, on the HomeDepot site and two other forums. Wash a part of the deck with soap and water, see if it helps. If it doesn't, strip the deck and start over. WHAT? I can understand having to do that if I had mis-applied it. The coverage / gallon was almost exact, so I know I didn't over-apply it. I am going to return whats left of the product to HomeDepot for a refund.

                Hello Barry, thank you for your review. I’m so sorry about the overlap marks and tackiness. If the coating is still tacky after a week, cleaning the surface with soap and water may help to remove the tackiness, as you mentioned. Otherwise, you can continue to let it dry for up to a month as the additional drying time, use, and weathering will help it subside. Also, if only two coats have been applied, I recommend applying a thin third coat from one end of the board to the other end to help resolve the overlap marks. If the coating is still tacky after a month or the marks are still there, it's best to remove the coating and reapply. Customer satisfaction is important to us, and we appreciate your feedback.

                  Not clear!
                  I applies this product to my kid’s playset thinking it would go on like indoor poly (a milky tint and dry clear). So when I opened the can and saw a slight brownish tint, I didnt give much thought. Boy was I wrong! Now I have to sand the swingset and start over. Very disappointed.

                    NOT "clear"!!!
                    This product is absolutely NOT clear; there's an obvious reddishh brown tone when applied to white wood. In the attached photo, the top half of the board has been coated
