How long does it take to dry before applying second coat, then how long to wait before using after second coat

Asked by Susie March 23, 2021

Answer

Hi Susie, Thank you for writing in. Behr Premium Semi-Transparent Waterproofing Wood Stain & Sealer has a 1-hour recoat time. A longer dry time may be necessary in cooler weather/high humidity. The full cure time is 72 hours, but the stain can withstand light foot traffic after 24-48 hours. 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

I have the original stain and the color is No 5077 on the container, is this the color and if so ...

Asked by DoubleD August 31, 2020

Answer

Hi Dave, No. 5077 is the base number of our Premium Semi-Transparent Waterproofing Wood Stain & Sealer, which can be tinted to different colors and must be tinted before use. This specific product listing is for Premium Semi-Transparent Waterproofing Wood Stain & Sealer No. 5077 tinted to Cordovan Brown ST-104 (the very dark brown color pictured above). Your stain container should have a color formula sticker on it, it's usually placed on the lid. That color formula sticker should have the name that your stain was tinted to. Please feel free to contact Behr directly for further assistance. Kindest regards, Doris

Hi alessio, Thanks for reaching out! As it turns out, our wood stains are only recommended for exterior use due to the mildewcide in them. I recommend working with your local Home Depot to find an interior wood stain. Best of luck with your project! ~Doris

Deck stain colors?

Asked by purpledoor1 July 23, 2016

Answer

Hi purpledoor1, Thanks for writing in! You might like a neutral color such as Taupe (ST-153) which will pair well with the house, and let the surrounding accents pop. Chatham Fog (ST-154) is another shade that will create the same feel. Hope this helps, and good luck on your project! Best, Jeanette P.

Extremely frustrated
We spent over $500 on this stain and sealer in one and used it on 2 decks. It looked great for a few weeks. Then Texas got a big snow that covered the decks. However they had been stained well in advance and based off of what we researched from this particular stain should have been fine! They look horrible. I’m so upset and not sure how to remedy this. These decks are a focal point on our property and we spent an entire weekend staining them. The money and time are not something I want to do again.

Response from BehrMar 12, 2021
Hi Mereliv76,

Thank you for reviewing Behr Premium Solid Color Waterproofing Wood Stain. I'm very sorry to hear about the peeling issue experienced after snowfall, as it isn't typical or what we want our customers to go through.

The loose stain can be removed by power washing, sanding, or with a wood stain stripper. After stain removal, the deck can be cleaned with Behr All-in-One Wood Cleaner. The deck should dry for at least 24 hours before recoating within the recommended temperature (2-32C) and humidity (below 50%) range.

Customer satisfaction is very important to us, and I encourage you to contact Behr directly for further assistance. We'd love to learn more about your project and find the best way to help.

Extremely frustrated
Purchased two 5 gallon buckets to paint 310’ of backyard 6 foot privacy fence. Fence is 5 years old, in good condition with a previous coat of paint. New paint was applied with a Graco sprayer also rented from Home Depot. Knew something wasn’t right when the first 5 gallons only covered about a quarter of the outside only portion of the fence. This stain/seal is thinner than others and though a solid, when dry allows for bleed through of previous paint (even with multiple applications). In the end, after two more trips back to local Home Depot, I had to purchase 25 total gallons of the product to complete the fence project (fence was roughly 4,500 sq feet and can indicates 5 gal will cover 2,000 sq feet—not even close). Worse, upon product completely drying I now have significant bleed through of the old paint color. Meaning I will have to rent the Graco again and re-accomplish the job. (A job that has already cost me $875 in paint and $110 in sprayer rental—plus 10 hours of work) I’d seek out a thicker product that will ensure coverage before purchasing this Behr product.

Hi Matt, thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that the Solid Stain did not cover well, and that you had to use more product than expected. Based on your square footage, and the two coats recommended, you would have needed about 19 gallons. However, I know what it is like to run into more work than expected, and I understand your frustration. Customer satisfaction is important to us, and we appreciate your feedback. Please reach out to us directly for further assistance; our customer care team is happy to help you! -Giovanna Behr

It's my go-to product for painting, staining, protection and color change. I use this product to paint all materials including wood, plastic and metal. The color is deep, rich and beautiful, the color after painting is lasting.

Very easy to use
This worked great to restain my columns. I did take the time to powerwash all the old stain off and let it fully dry before applying this product but very glad a did. The stain came out very smooth looking and stuck very well to the cedar.

Not a uniform result
The product barely soaked in at all. Result was very blotchy. I only used it on a small area so I can easily sand it off. Won't use it again. Kinda typical of water based finishes.

Response from Joanna, Behr Customer CareApr 18, 2021
Hi Voodoo, thank you for sharing your feedback. We're sorry to hear our semi-transparent stain didn't provide you the uniform finish you were expecting; that's not the performance we expect from our products.

To get your project back on track if only one coat has been applied, we'd recommend re-coating your surface with a well-saturated roller ensuring to back-roll each board as you blend all the start and stop points. Keep in mind that although our semi-transparent stain penetrates your wood a bit, our water-based stain is a film forming coating. So, we recommend applying two coats to ensure a uniform finish.

Customer satisfaction is important to us. So, we've reached out to you directly to assist you further. Have a great rest of your weekend.
Great Brand/Stain
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have been using Behr stain for my deck for years. The product goes on well and lasts for years. Definitely worth purchasing!
by GeorgiaKP
Not satisfied!
Bought a 3 year stain ( thinking I would not be here for three more years!). Looked wonderful for the first few months, then winter, now a little over a year later, I need to restrain! I will buy a better product for the next project!

Response from Joanna, Behr Customer CareApr 11, 2021
Hi Deb3, thanks for sharing your feedback. We're sorry to hear the semi-transparent stain you used peeled so soon; that's not the performance we expect from our products.

To get your project looking great again, we'd recommend removing all the loose stain from your wood, cleaning it with our All-In-One Wood Cleaner, allowing it to dry for at least 24 hours, and touching up the affected areas. You may need to apply an overall recoat to uniform your finish. Keep in mind that additional coats will make the stain more opaque and that if over 50% of the stain has peeled, we'd recommend completely stripping it before cleaning your wood and applying two full fresh coats.

Customer satisfaction is important to us. So, we've reached out to you directly to assist you further. Have a great rest of your Sunday.
Dependable Product
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I started using this product last year on a workshop construction project. The tone and color are very pleasing. Repeatability in color is vital as the wood exterior of the house is rather extensive so having consistent color on the cedar siding is critical. With this product I can get repeatable color as I get sections of the house stained over time.
by Geo55
Longer Lasting
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I used this to stain my new log cabin and it has lasted now for 10 years! The man who built the house said that this was the best stain he had ever used and I believe him. I would never use anything but BEHR.

More effort than worth
Love the color and appearance and ease of application but all that just doesn't count if not lasting more than one year. Went from Behr solid deck paint to semi-transparent only after experiencing poor lasting results with the solid color. Sanded back to bare wood and covered with semi-transparent last spring and looking at bare spots again. Too much time and money wasted. Always appreciated the Behr product for interior use but no more for the outside..........

Hi Tony, thanks for sharing your feedback. We're sorry to hear the Semi-Transparent Waterproofing Stain & Sealer you applied to your wood is wearing off so soon; that's not the performance we expect from our products.
