Sage color,gray green.....

Asked by Raul May 13, 2021
1
Answer

Yes that is a great color. I use a red stain on my fence. Protects it well.

I used this product on an exterior door. The sheen is inconsistent. Is there a clear coat that could be applied over this stain to equalize the sheen?

Asked by SCA April 9, 2021
1
Answer

Hi SCA, thank you for your question.The Semi-Transparent Wood Stain does not need a sealer. If you have already applied two coats, I recommend applying another coat to even out the finish. Keep in mind this will make the finish more opaque. After this, you have the option of using a water-based polyurethane. I suggest checking with your local store for a recommendation on the right topcoat to use. Good luck with your project! -Giovanna

Is this product suitable for staining a previously stained log cabin?

Asked by Bret March 30, 2021
3
Answers

Hi Bret, thank you for your question. The Semi-Transparent Wood Stain is designed for bare wood surfaces. For previously stained surfaces, you can use the Solid Wood Stain instead if removal of the previous stain is not doable. We recommend cleaning the surface with the All-In-One Wood Cleaner before staining. Good luck with your project! -Giovanna

Water based. No thinner is needed

My deck is currently painted with BEHR Redwood No. 9 stain, will SC-330 match its color?

Asked by Bala September 9, 2020
3
Answers

Hi Bala, thank you for your question. Although our Solid Color Waterproofing Stain & Sealer's Redwood SC-330 tone is very similar to our pre-tinted Oil-Latex Redwood Stain's color, the colors may not be an exact match as the formulation of each base differs. We'd suggest getting a sample of our solid stain first to ensure the color match-ability is to your liking. We hope this information helps. Best of luck with your project and happy staining. Have a great Thursday. -Joanna

Asked by Albert August 5, 2020
2
Answers

Hi Albert, Thank you for writing in. Behr Premium Solid Color Waterproofing Wood Stain & Sealer can be applied to old and new wood surfaces. We recommend preparing the wood with Behr All-in-One Wood Cleaner to remove mill glaze from new wood and to open the pores for better adhesion. After cleaning, the wood should dry thoroughly for about 24 hours before staining. Please feel free to reach out with any additional questions you may have. Best of luck with your project! ~Doris

Is this stain and sealer safe for pets?

Asked by Kerry August 2, 2020
3
Answers

Hi Kerry - Thank you for your question. While this stain is non-toxic to humans once fully cured, it was not formulated to be non toxic for pets. If pet safety is a concern, you may want to have your local vet look over the ingredients listed on our Safety Data Sheet before beginning your project. The Safety Data Sheet can be viewed by clicking on the SDS link under the Product Overview section. Hope this helps! - Sara

Oh boy it’s ORANGE
I bought this semi transparent Behr Redwood stain for our deck just a couple of days back. Used a professional painter to stain the deck. This color looked so different in the shade card at the store . Oh boy don’t be fooled it’s ORANGE! I Spent $$$ to get it stained and that BRIGHT ORANGE COLOR is shocking and shows very different from Shade card. One would thing redwood be more reddish brown, but this one looks tacky ORANGE! What did I sign up for? Very very disappointed in what it looks like . Our deck looks so tacky coz of it now , money in drain! Sooooo disappointed and not sure what to do with the ORANGE DECK.

Response from BehrMar 9, 2021
Hi CaliforniaMom,

Thank you for reviewing Behr Premium Semi-Transparent Waterproof Wood Stain & Sealer. I'm very sorry to hear about the color issue experienced, as it certainly isn't what we want our customers to go through.

Ultimately, the final color appearance of a semi-transparent stain can vary heavily on the color of the wood that the stain is being applied to. If the wood has a decent amount of yellow in it, it can make a redwood stain look more orange than red.

To help avoid this issue, it is strongly recommended testing out small 8 oz. samples (http://thd.co/3enQW5V) before starting a new project. This way, you can see how the stain will look on the surface beforehand.

To change the color, the current stain can be topcoated with a solid color wood stain after a 72-hour dry time.

If you haven't already done so, I encourage you to contact Behr directly for further assistance. We'd be more than happy to help.

Kind regards,

Doris Behr

Nice Stain Sealer But... (review for solid stain sealer see below)
I used the Behr Premium Solid Redwood Waterproofing Wood Stain Sealer but for some reason when I click on the reviews it takes me to Semi Transparent. THIS REVIEW IS FOR SOLID. With that being said, I have always taken great care of my deck which is why it has lasted 27 years and have used Behr products on it for the past 20 years. This is the first time I have used a Solid Stain Sealer and the reason I went with it was because we wanted to cover the existing color. The deck was cleaned, power washed, sanded and power washed again. I really like how the Stain Sealer went on. It was thick and filled a lot of the cracks. I did all the application with a brush. Yes it takes longer but I find I dont waste a lot of paint doing it this way and I have control of how much paint is applied. When the deck was done it looked amazing. It almost looked like it was vinyl. Well that didnt last long. This paint for some reason "collects dirt". I dont know any other way to describe it. You actually have to scrub the dirt off the deck now. Every single day. Which was a chore. Notice I wrote was because I just dont do it anymore and live with a dirty looking deck which is not pleasing to the eye. I have never had to do this with other Behr products used on this deck. For that reason I would not recommend this product. Unless you have time to scrub it everyday to keep it looking nice because when its clean it looks great.

Hello Monzster, we appreciate you sharing your feedback. We're sorry to hear about your experience with our solid stain; that's not the experience we want our customers to have with our products. General maintenance, as with most coatings, is needed. However, we'd like an opportunity to gather more details about your project and help you get it back on track, as customer satisfaction is very important to us. So, please feel free to contact our Customer Care team directly for additional assistance. Have a great day. –Joanna Behr

I put this stain on my new redwood fence. I had previously used Behr stain and I assumed this stain would look the same. I bought the redwood color thinking it would be the rich brownish red like I'd used before. Boy, was I wrong! This stain is bright red and shiny. It doesn't say it's a gloss finish on the can. My fence is in the front yard, and I'm kind of embarrassed about how it looks now. I didn't paint the other side of the fence because it's gaudy. I tried to cover it with Behr Padre Brown stain, but that was purple. I guess I will live with it until next spring and then figure out how to fix the issue.

Hi GardenWonder,

Thank you for reviewing Behr Premium Semi-Transparent Waterproofing Wood Stain & Sealer. I'm sorry to hear about your experience and encourage you to contact Behr's Customer Care Department for further assistance with this matter. We'd love to find a way to help.

Kindest regards,

Impressive
If your expecting a stain/transparent to see the grain. It is not. More like a paint. And you definitely must like a terracotta color. Opened the first can & said, "OMG, what did I buy". Orange. Once it dries, it does darken a bit & it's lovely. Covers great & goes a long way. I'm covering new & old wood. This paint is perfect for that. The old looks new & the new, well, it all matches. I'm very impressed with this paint & can't wait to see how it holds up to rain & snow.

This deck sealer mixed well and went on easily after the power wash. Water beaded up readily on the horizontal surfaces with a second coat (see photo). If you are accustomed to a darker stain, be aware that this is a redwood tint and it may appear bright...but that is a matter of taste. Hopefully, I will be just as pleased with it in six years!

Worst Stain and service
Be warned!!! This is not a stain. It goes on like a solid paint hiding all wood grain. It’s suppose to be redwood but came out pumpkin orange like others have mentioned. I though it would lighten up but it did not and I had to quickly power wash and strip it off. My deck looked awful. Tried to take it back and the manager argued with me that it looked fine. I guess pumpkin and redwood are the same to him. Would not give me a refund or store credit. Bought TWP redwood stain and now deck looks perfect. Here is what the crappy Behr stain looked like before I spent 18 hours stripping it.
