A:  Hi Vince, thank you for your question. Yes, the Semi-Transparent Exterior Wood Stain can be used on a wood storm dorm. I recommend using the All-In-One Wood Cleaner to prep the surface, and allow the wood to dry completely before staining. Good luck with your project! -Giovanna

      Answer This Question

      A:  I haven't tried to glue anything to the surface, but I would think it would be fine. To be sure, I would check the side of the can for a phone # or website, and contact the company.

        A:  Hi Gerry, thank you for your question. Our Semi-Transparent Wood Stain and Sealer has not been tested with adhesives over it, and we cannot say if the glue carpet will work. Have a great day! -Giovanna

        by|Oct 24, 2022

          A:  yes it will. but you need to let the stain fully cure.

              Great Stain
              I've been reading a lot of reviews regarding this stain and the color. Many people complain the stain is too orange. I must admit a was a bit skeptical about the color too but decided to roll the dice. What I found was the color looks a bit too heavy on the orange side when the deck is initially stained but after it's weathered a little bit it begins to take on more of the cedar color. Came out nice. I'll have a better idea of the stain resiliency by this time next year. Good product IMO.

                Beautiful result
                Don’t freak out when you open the can, the final product dries darker and is absolutely gorgeous on unprimed cedar. It rained unexpectedly 3 hours after application and it still looks great. Absorbs quickly and easy to apply. Photos are one coat only

                  Worst stain ever
                  Bought all the stuff the store suggested to seal my deck did everything that the paint department told me to applied the stain 8 hours later it started to rain and now the deck has bare spots all over. The can says “4 hours rain ready” not true now I have to buy everything all over again clean the deck rent the sprayer and restrain the entire deck!!! Highly recommend not to buy this stain.

                  Hi Jbird, thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that the stain was washed away by the rain. This is not typical, and I can understand your disappointment. 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! -Giovanna Behr
                    Separate orders of this stain came in different tones. 3rd order was the color actually advertised.
                    Colors didn't match. We made the rookie mistake of not buying enough, so upon ordering a 2nd and 3rd supply, each set we got were different colors. Our fence is now multicolored. 6 feet of our 54 foot fence is the ACTUAL color we wanted. Majority was not as advertised.

                    Hi Donnell, thanks for your review. I'm sorry to hear the color turned out a little different in your three containers; this isn't the experience we want our customers to have. Colors can vary slightly between containers, so we recommend mixing multiple containers for color uniformity on your project. Customer Satisfaction is very important to us, so feel free to reach out to our Customer Care team directly for further assistance. They are always happy to help. Enjoy the rest of your day. -Christina Behr

                    Pumpkin Orange
                    I really should have read the reviews prior to purchase. Natural Cedar sounded great to me in the store. after applying it I was appalled at how orange the color is. It is actually quite revulsive. Girlfriend thinks it looks like pumpkin vomit. Very disappointed. Hopefully it will protect the deck and the color will fade over time.

                    Hi Ryan, thank you for your review. I’m sorry to hear that the color didn’t turn out as expected. Although the color of the wood can affect how the final color will turn out, it isn't typical for the color to come out that orange. The deck will still be protected, and the color may fade over time. 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

                      Hi Mterrence5, thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that the coating did not hold up. This is not the experience we want for our customers, and I understand your disappointment. I recommend removing the failing coating, cleaning the surface with the All-In-One Wood Cleaner No. 63, allowing the surface to dry and applying two coats at the recommended spread rate. 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! -Giovanna Behr
