    Q:What’s the difference between Gray Seas and Drift Gray with respect to solid stains?

    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi Rich, thank you for your question. The grays are similar, however, Gray Seas is slightly darker. I recommend using 8 oz. samples to test the color on a piece of wood. Good luck with your project! -Giovanna

      Q:It has been a month and it is still tacky on my deck. Will it ever cure?

      Answer This Question

      A:  Hi Jeff, thank you for reaching out. I'm so sorry to hear that the Semi-Transparent Stain & Sealer is still tacky, and after a month too! That is not the experience we want for our customers. The tackiness will go away on its own with time and weathering. However, you can speed up that process by cleaning the surface with soap and water. Please feel free to reach out to us directly if you need further assistance. -Lina

        Looks great! Two coatings to replace the lighter deck color did the trick for us. It brought a nice contrast to our newly painted house. Very satisfied!

        Can not recommend this stain, it does not soak into wood, stays sticky, does not dry properly, never had a stain like this. I used it to stain a custom built table, it has been over a week since staining and it still sticks to skin, napkins, everything. Horrible, so bad, I took it back to store and insited they refund the purchase. Still sick that it ruined my custom built table! Read other reviews, search reviews for “sticky” you will see the many reviews of people having same issue

        Hi FrugalRemodeler, thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that the Semi-Transparent Wood Stain is still sticky after drying for over a week. That isn't typical, and I can understand your disappointment. To help get this resolved, I recommend gently cleaning the stain with soap and water, which should help remove the stickiness. If possible, allow up to one month for the stain to dry. If the table is still sticky after a month, I recommend removing the coating by sanding, power washing at a low level, or using a finish/paint stripper. Once removed, clean the table with our All-In-One cleaner, let it fully dry, and then reapply the stain. 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! - Randy Behr

        Pleasantly surprised
        Have to admit, I am quite fond of the color even though I initially was quite nervous suffering from instant buyers remorse selecting barn red in semi-transparent. I had been very nervous it would look like straight bright red paint for my deck which I was not wanting. This said, it came out lovely with indeed being semi transparent showing the wood grain through the stain. Even though was staining a brand new board, I still went ahead and used an all in one wood cleaner on it first too.

          Good product
          The product is as advertised and and gives great protection. The color was perfect. However, it was advertised as a Gallon but is only 116 fl oz. hence the 4* and not 5*.

            The product was thicker than expected which was a pleasant surprise.. I used it with a spray gun and had no issues.

            Looked good for 2 weeks
            I prepped my fence a week in advance with a cleaning. Applied this stain with a staining pad, 1 coat as advertised and now I am seeing spots of the original fence coming through, more and more everyday. Very disappointed the time I took and the expense of the product to have this occurring in a very short period. At the rate this is happening I’d guess in another month the entire fence will need completely redone.

            Hi David, thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that you are seeing the color of the original fence coming through. As it turns out it is recommended to apply two coats of the Semi-transparent stain. I'd recommend cleaning the surface with our All-In-One Wood cleaner letting it dry thoroughly and applying another coat of stain. 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
              Looks great!
              Covered our deck really well and looks great. We had a lot of uneven boards with a previous semi-transparent stain and they were also able to color match exactly to our railing color. See before and after photos. I'm not sure how long it will last before peeling and/or needing refinishing but hopefully at least a few years...
