Hi NUNU - Thank you for your question! If you're unable to prepare the bare wood with this product, sanding the surface and cleaning the wood with soap and water is a great alternative. Best of luck with your project! - Sara

Hi Ckh0414, thanks for writing in with your question. Behr products do not contain lead. The Light Lead (ST-149) refers to the light gray color the Semi-Transparent Wood Stain can be tinted to. Check out all of the available colors online or pick up a brochure at your local store. Have a great day! -Giovanna

Answer

Hi Tom, Thanks for your question! We currently don't make a semi-transparent oil-based stain. We do have oil-based transparent wood finishes, however, they're not available in a color that's similar to Light Lead ST-149. You may want to reach out to your local Home Depot to see if they have an oil-based semi-transparent stain in a similar color for your project. Best - Sara

How does this product do over old paint on a fence?

Asked by Wendip May 27, 2015
1
Answer

Wendip, thank you for your question. If your current coating is in sound condition, you're okay. If there are sections that there is some peeling or flaking, you can smooth it down and spot treat it. However, if your current fence coating is not in sound condition, you must strip it with a product such as BEHR PREMIUM® Wood Stain & Finish Stripper. Once it is stripped (or if it is already in sound condition) clean it with a product such as BEHR PREMIUM® NO. 63 All-In-One Wood Cleaner before applying BEHR® Solid Color Waterproofing Wood Stain. Note that it may take a 3rd thin coat to get the light shade to completely cover the darker coating. We suggest that you first test in a small inconspicuous spot to ensure the results you're looking for. Be sure to follow all back label instruction, and best of luck!

Love It
I used this on an interior wood ceiling made of luan with pine and poplar mouldings to give it a pickled gray hue. I used 1-2 coats and am very happy with the results.

Sanded and oressure washed wood and applied one layer. Peeled off in pieces next year. Was used on outside patio walking areas.

Response from BehrApr 22, 2021
Hi jlynn,

Thank you for reviewing Behr Premium Solid Color Waterproofing Wood Stain & Sealer. I'm very sorry to hear that the stain peeled within a year, as that isn't typical or what we want our customers to go through.

The loose stain can be removed by power washing, sanding, or with a wood stain stripper. After stain removal, the deck can be cleaned with Behr All-in-One Wood Cleaner. The deck should dry for at least 24 hours before recoating within the recommended temperature (2-32C) and humidity (below 50%) range.

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 experience and find the best way to help.

Kindest regards,

Doris Behr
Beautiful color
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This product lasts! I have several large dogs that run off our deck and this practice endres!

Worst product ever
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I painted the deck last spring following all of the steps. When snow melted this spring, to my disappointment the deck was peeling everywhere. Don’t days on this project, expected it to look nice for at least a couple f years. Waste of time and money.
by Disappointed 100
Response from Joanna, Behr Customer CareApr 11, 2021
Hi Disappointed 100, thank you for your feedback. We're sorry to hear the solid stain you used on your deck peeled so soon; that's not the performance we expect from our products.

To get your project back on track, we'd recommend removing the loose stain, cleaning your wood with our All-In-One Wood Cleaner, allowing it to dry for at least 24 hours, and touching up the affected areas. An overall recoat may be needed to uniform your application.

Customer satisfaction is important to us. So, we've reached out to you directly to assist you further. Have a great rest of your Sunday.
One Coat Brings an Old Fence Back to Life
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Bought a 5 gallon bucket and stained the fence on both sides of the house. Makes an old, dirty brown redwood fence look brand new and just changes the entire look of our home.

Outstanding stain!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I tried Behr house stain about 2 years ago based on a recommendation from a friend. Durability and consistent coat coverage is excellent. Easy clean up. Less costly than Sherwin Williams.

Fantastic Product
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was very pleased with how easy it was to apply this product to my fence and wood chairs. Water beads up nicely when it rains. Color looks dynamic. I choose the Coffee color stain.
