    Q:Can this be used to seal the edge of a laminate countertop under the endcap trim?

    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi Heather, thanks for your question. As it turns out, our Premium Transparent Wood Finish cannot be applied to a laminate surface, and I don't recommend using it for your project. Instead, it's best to find a countertop coating from your local hardware store. Have a great day! -Chriistina

      Q:Can the second coat be applied later (eg. >72 hours) from the first coat? I applied the first coat and let it dry 12 hours, but now it has started to rain so I assume I should let the wood dry out again before doing the second coat. Do you see any issues?

      A:  Hi Mtos, thank you for your question. Yes, the second coat can be applied later as long as the surface is sound, clean, and dry. Good luck with your project! -Giovanna

        Q:Will this work well for Cedar ceiling planks for a front and back patio in Central Florida to withstand moisture, mold and mildew?
        by|Nov 2, 2022
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Hi there, thanks for the question. Yes, our Clear Waterproofing Exterior Wood finish would be a great choice for your Cedar ceiling planks. It has a mildew-resistant finish to help protect against mold and mildew from growing on the coating. If there is any existing mold or mildew growing on the wood, it needs to be removed first before applying the coating. Have a great day! -Ronald

          2 years product, will start peeling
          I put this product on my cedar deck in June of 20 ( after a complete sand down). The product started to peel after the 2nd year. The green and black mold started to show after even after power washing with spray bleach. The mold seems to have gotten underneath the finish. Love the golden color but is far from Natural ..................

          Hi doover, thank you for your review. I'm terribly sorry to hear that our Transparent Waterproofing Wood Finish is peeling after two years. This is not typical, and I can understand your disappointment. To fix the issue, I recommend removing the coating using a wood stripper or sanding. Then, clean the surface with our All-In-One Wood Cleaner to remove any active mold growth and brighten the wood. Once dry, apply two coats of the finish per the label instructions.

            Beautiful finish on new cedar fence
            One moderate coat gave me fantastic results on my 6-week-old western cedar fence (Denver, CO area). Used 2 1/4 gal. of BEHR Clear Transparent Waterproofing Exterior Wood Finish on 75 feet of 6-ft high fence. Water beading off nicely.

              Not clear at all!
              This "clear" coat isn't clear. I'm very disappointed that it wrecked my beautiful pine siding. I tried all the big box brands and this is the less crappy one. Olympic was almost mustard yellow... I tried all methods of applying it and the brush worked best.

                Two years later review
                We applied this wood finish two years ago to our new fence (Seattle weather). It looked great for the first 1.5 years. After 1.5 years, I’ve noticed the color fading a little on the vertical surfaces, but it still looks good. On the horizontal surfaces like the 2x4 cedar piece on top of the fence, the finish is peeling like paint and the wood already has a gray patina.. I don’t think this finish will last for the 6 years it says with the horizontal surfaces already failing.

                Hi Jason, thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that your fence is fading and peeling on some spots. This is not the experience we want for our customers, and I understand your disappointment. I recommend sanding the loose coating off, cleaning the surface, and touching up or recoating as needed.

                  Doesn't clean well
                  My dogs have left muddy paw prints on the deck. It POURED down rain last night and the prints did not wash off?? I think it will come off with some effort but I should not have to scrub my deck!!! I do enough cleaning inside. I put a lot of work into this deck. Very disappointed

                    Great product
                    I have never refinished a deck before. The instructions were easy to follow and product went on well after preparing the surface. I applied 2 coats within 2hours of each other using a roller brush on main deck and paint brush on posts and steps. The natural color shows well and repels water now as it is supposed to.

                      Tacky after 2 weeks- pollen stuck in top layer
                      Avoid this Behr waterproofing sealer. I wish I had read the reviews…. Now I’m regretting it. Sanded, stripped, primed, two thin coats. 1) it’s yellow. Luckily I wanted yellow, but be warned- it’s YELLOW. 2) it has been two weeks and it is stick sticky. Can walk on it with bare feet. Pollen dropped and stuck to the deck, now I’ve got a messy looking deck and I fear the only way to save it is to sand it back and use different product. Yay.

                      Hi Brian, thank you for your review. Sorry to hear that our Clear Transparent Waterproofing Exterior Wood Finish is still tacky after 2 weeks. If the stain is dry but still tacky, I'd recommend gently cleaning a small area with soap and water to see if the stickiness subsides. If it does continue to wash the entire area. If the coating is still tacky after a month, the coating would need to be removed and reapplied. Customer satisfaction is important to us, and we appreciate your feedback.

                        Disappointing
                        Not a good product, very upset with the shape of my deck just 2 years after use. And the worst part, is that now I am not sure what to do about it. I followed all the steps…prep, priming solution, everything. Now it is peeling like paint, but I don’t think it will be adequate to just touch up and am not confident anything that gets coated over will last. Just a mess.

                        Hi there, thank you for your review. Sorry to hear that our Transparent Waterproofing Wood Finish is easily coming off after 6 months. This is not typical, and I can understand your disappointment. To fix the issue I recommend removing the stain by sanding, power washing at a low level, or using a paint/finish stripper Then clean the surface with the All-In-One Wood Cleaner and let it dry, then apply 2 coats of stain per the label directions.
