Q:We just installed a fence using newly purchased pressure treated lumber (weathershield - MCA). How long do I need to wait before I stain my fence? Since the wood is new, do I need to pressure wash / clean it first or can I stain without cleaning?

Answer This Question

A:  Hi FloridaStain, thanks for the question. Pressure-treated wood should have at least 6-8 weeks of drying time before applying our products. Also, I would recommend cleaning the wood with our All-In-One Wood Sealer prior to applying the stain. It will clean the wood, remove and mill glaze, and open the pores of the wood to help with the adhesion of the stain. Have a great day! -Ronald

          The paint went on like a dream. It dried quickly and quite hard one heavy coat. Did the job on a new deck on a new shed very good.

          definitely not clear
          Its yellow. Tried it on a piece of cedar before applying it to my whole project based on reviews and this is most definitely not clear or anywhere near it.

          Hi Peter, thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that the finish didn't turn out as expected. Although the coating is clear, it does have a slight tint to help with UV protection.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

            Not clear, peels, do not buy
            This is all around terrible product. Followed instructions and the color is uneven and peeling off already after it dried. I painted my whole fence with this crap, now I have to remove it and start all over—with a DIFFERENT product (obviously).

            Hello, thank you for your review. I'm so sorry to hear about the trouble you ran into with our Transparent Waterproofing Wood Finish. We want our customers to be happy with their projects, and we can understand your disappointment. To fix the fence without taking off the stain, I recommend removing any loose coating and cleaning the surface with our All-In-One Wood Cleaner to encourage even absorption of the stain and ensure the proper adhesion. Once dry, touch up the bare areas and apply a thin coat for uniformity. Please note that this will deepen the stain and impact the opacity. Your satisfaction is important to us, and we appreciate your feedback. Please reach out to us directly so we can learn more about your project and help turn this around. We look forward to hearing from you! -Lina Behr
              The sealer was very easy to apply. I put it in a garden sprayer, sprayed it on the fence, wiped it around with a rag, and it turned out wonderful.

              Here comes the sun
              Holy yellow color. This stain absolutely utterly ruined my doors. I'm appalled. I used expensive hardwood and it's all for nothing. I'm so mad.

              Hello Elizabeth, thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review! I'm sorry to hear that the color of your doors didn't quite meet your expectations. However, please don't worry - we want to help! To get your door project back on track, I suggest removing the current stain, giving the surface a thorough clean with our All-In-One Wood Cleaner, and then reapplying the stain in a new color. Alternatively, you can simply cover this stain with a solid color coating instead. Our Customer Care team is always ready to help you with any further assistance you may need; your satisfaction is our top priority. I hope you have a fantastic day! -Christina Behr
                Definitely not clear
                I took a beautiful piece of exterior wood, and it turned it yellow, hiding most all of the grain, this is the product that the Home Depot associate said was best for my project. I wish i would’ve bought a different product from a different manufacturer. I have not been having the best luck with Behr lately. They are overpriced for the quality product that they are now producing. I guess it’s back to Benjamin Moore.

                Hi TomR, thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear about your experience using the Transparent Waterproofing Exterior Wood Finish. This stain does have a slight tint to help with UV protection. However, the coating should still be transparent and not yellow.

                  TURNS WOOD DECKS YELLOW!!
                  Purchase this product because Olympic was out of stock of the clearcoat. I thought that the clearcoat would just be applied and look normal, boy was wrong! As soon as I open up the can, it had a yellow tint to it, so I started stirring it. When I applied it, it was not easy to apply and took some time for it to be coated on the wood. I waited over three days to dry. As soon as the water started, hitting my wood deck, it started turning yellow as you could see in the pictures. Awful product.
