    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi suz0. Thanks for writing in with your question. As it turns out, our Premium Semi-Transparent Exterior Wood Stain is not recommended for interior projects. I am sorry for the inconvenience this may cause. I recommend instead looking at our interior wood stains, which are great for interior wood furniture pieces. Please note, however, that our coatings are not recommended for surfaces subject to direct contact with food. In that case, it is best to look for a coating that is FDA approved for food contact. Have a nice day! -Joni

        Answer This Question

        A:  Hi Jim, Thank you for writing in. A five-gallon bucket of Behr Premium Semi-Transparent Waterproofing Wood Stain & Sealer should be enough for two coats on 1,250-1,500 sq ft. I hope this information was helpful. Please feel free to reach out with any additional questions you may have. Best of luck with your project! ~Doris

          Good coverage - accurate protection
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have a pressure treated wooden fence - I believe it was built around 2005, so almost 20 years old and starting to need some major repair. I believe it's lasted this long though because I treated it about 8 years ago with the Bear waterproofing. The previous homeowners did not stain the fence at all. This product provided good coverage although untreated wood will use a lot more stain than wood that's been treated before. I was looking at the fence and it looks like it needs to be stained again which is right in line with the product's estimated lifespan.

            This Is The Best
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought several gallons in two different colors to refurbish my deck. Really covered good and clean up was easy.

                Disappointed on longevity and peeling
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] At 4 years this stain peeled on all horizontal surfaces requiring a lot of prep work to reapply stain. The product was replaced under guarantee for the horizontal surfaces but not the vertical. The vertical surfaces have faded considerably especially in the sun reached areas. Never had a product do this before.

                Response from Christina, Behr Customer CareJan 20, 2023
                Hi there, Thanks for taking the time to review our Premium Semi-Transparent Stain & Sealer. I'm sorry to hear about the peeling and fading on your project. It sounds like you may have reached out to us previously, and I apologize if you didn't get the help you expected. To fix the peeling, I recommend sanding to remove the loose coating, cleaning with our All-In-One Wood Cleaner, and reapplying the stain. To fix the faded areas, you can simply clean with our wood cleaner and apply another coat (please note the opacity may change). I've also followed up with you via email to get more info about your project and further assist. Thanks again for providing your feedback, and I hope to hear from you soon! -Christina

                      Best in class
                      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I’ve got a 30 yo pt deck in western ny that gets 8~9 ft of snow in winter and direct sun in summer and I’ve used Behr for 28 of those yrs. I’ve replaced 1 rim board from rot everything else is perfect, in fact most people think it’s a composite deck and not wood!

                        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We have been using this stain since 2002 and love it! We use 501 cedar, it looks beautiful.

                          Looks great and stays that way
                          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Bought it 6 years ago for my covered patio steps, my raised vegetable garden, and mostly for a weather worn yard fence. The steps still look like they were just stained, and the fence is being copied by my neighbors. I had to touch up my garden box for some peeling, but it went quickly and looks new again. BTW, I did the touch up with leftover stain from six years ago. It was still in original condition.

                            Great product if used promptly.
                            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this product a few months ago and returned it because it separated. The new cans off the shelf I had them shake before I brought them home. Everything looks good with the new stuff.
