      Q:What is the difference between behr premium chocolate no 4629 and behr premium chocolate no 5129?
      by|Sep 29, 2023
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Hi Lisa, thanks for the question. The 4629 is an oil-based semi-transparent penetrating stain. It has a 1-year warranty and may need a maintenance coat every year or so, depending on the exposure to the elements. The 5129 is a water-based film-forming stain. It has a 6-year warranty on decks. If you have further questions about your project, feel free to reach out to us directly. Our customer care team is happy to help. -Ronald

          Premium garbage
          Didn't last one year before it started peeling like crazy. And yes, I did prep it thoroughly. Just what you get for water based behr. Writing this to inform others. I don't expect a refund from behr.

          Hi Mikes, thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that our stain started to peel in less than a year. We understand your disappointment since the product did not provide the 4 6- year life expectancy. Customer satisfaction is very important, and our Customer Care team is on standby and ready to help. Please contact us directly so we can further assist you with a resolution. In the meantime, the issue can be fixed by removing the remaining stain by scraping, sanding, or using a power washer at a low setting. From there, you can clean with our All-In-One Wood Cleaner, followed by two coats of stain applied according to the label directions. Again, our Customer Care team would like to hear from you to see how we can help. Behr

            Disappointing
            I took 3 weeks preparing by 4 year old cedar deck for my 50th anniversary celebration. I followed the direction implicitly. Stripped & sanded, washed, sun dried, applied no direct sun, etc. It started peeling in 2 weeks. This Spring it was a mitigated disaster. Thankfully I’ve need no chemicals to prepare it yet again. Comes right off with water…

            Hi JAFT, thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that the stain you applied 2 weeks ago is peeling. That is not typical, and I can understand your disappointment. Our Semi-Transparent Waterproofing Stain & Sealer should provide a 6-year lifespan for horizontal surfaces and 8 years for vertical. To fix the peeling, I recommend removing the loose coating before cleaning the surface with our All-In-One Wood Cleaner. Once clean and dry, touch up the bare spots and apply a thin recoat if needed for uniformity. If the peeling is widespread, it's best to remove the coating by stripping or sanding. Once the deck is bare, clean the surface with our wood cleaner and apply two thin coats following the recommended spread rate when dry. 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! -Lina Behr

              Hi Jay60, thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear about the peeling. This is not the experience we want for our customers, and I can understand your disappointment. I recommend removing the loose coating, and cleaning with the All-In-One Wood Cleaner. Allow the wood to dry completely and apply two coats at the recommended spread rate.

                Too thin to use
                Bad batch apparently. This was my 2nd can needed for my deck. It separated after application and messed everything up. Had to exchange it for another can at no cost. However, I now have to restain everything. Very big waste of my time. This product should have the viscosity of paint. If it is thin, dont buy it.

                Hi there, thank you for your review. I'm so sorry to hear that your stain was thin and that you ran into trouble with the application. That is not typical, and I can understand your frustration. Our Solid Color Waterproofing Stain & Sealer should have a thinner consistency than paint, similar to a light cream. However, I'm concerned that it separated after it was applied. 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! -Lina Behr
