Asked by: Jerry
Coverage1st Coat: 300-350 Sq.Ft. and 2nd Coat 600-700 Sq ft. Your first coat is usually more absorbent into the wood surface especially is it’s older and hasn’t been sealed. Once your first coat is on and dried, the second coat goes so much further giving it’s beatiful even tone. It helps to clean your wood with with the Behr wood cleaner first. It opens the pores of the wood, removes any mold and mildewed discoloration, and oxidation discoloration giving your wood a more even colored wood once it dried. Remember to let your wood dry out a couple good days before you seal it. You don’t want to encapsulate any moisture under your sealer. That causes pealing.

Asked by: LT
Yes, it can be applied over previously stained wood. I have done this several times on my deck. And I am very satisfied with the Behr brand. DD

The stain must have spilled in the grass and got some of this on my sneakers. Any way to remove stain from fabric?
Asked by: ali
If you don’t wash it immediately, it’ll stain you sneakers and most likely not come out with some type of remover stripper. They do sell a latex less harsh stripper spray you can try. Just be careful not to bleach or worsen the fabric.

1 gal. #SC-533 Cedar Naturaltone Solid Color Waterproofing Exterior Wood Stain and Sealer is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 1299.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to apply Right out of the box, it’s ready to use. It’s recommended for wood substrates for properly prepared new to slightly weathered unsealed exterior wood that has a 0-5 year exposure. You must prep the area before you apply the stain to achieve best out of it. I power washed the area with power wash soap to make sure no dirt or debris is left on the surface. This stain gave our 3 years old deck a new life. It’s very easy to apply and dries quickly. The color in the picture on the box is a bit lighter than the actual color once you apply. I used a paint gun to spray an even layer of stain which worked out great. Two coats were applied with 2 hours of gap between each coat. End result made me pleased. Wood grains are still visible giving the wood a warm natural look. Since I stained my deck, there have been lots of heavy pours and continuous beating from the sun light but its holding pretty well. A great product that makes your deck look beautiful again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made a 10 year old fence looks like new When we moved into our house about 2 years ago there was a ceder fence installed. It was very gray. This year I power washed it. Was shocked how clean it came out. After this to protect it I used this product. I am not sure if if it was because our fence was cedar or because of the age but I went though 24gal of this Bahr to cover about 40 panels front and back. Each panel is 4'x6'. Went over 2 times what it states it would cover. To apply it I used a Wagner PaintReady System High-Volume Low Pressure. It worked great. If doing a fence I would recommend a sprayer with this product. Read some people has issues using a sprayer. Not sure if this only works with some sprayers so that is the reason I listed what I used. Very much recommend you have these shaken up at at store before using. I bought a small sample can and found out that there is heavy separation at the bottom. Hard to stir in. Trying that with a 5gl bucket would have been a lot worse. I love the face lift this gave to our backyard. This stuff is so easy for cleaning!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product, really lasts. We applied this on the backside (southwesterly exterior wall) of our cedar bat and board sided house back in spring 2009. Our cedar had been painted once so we used a pressure washer to strip the paint and then after it dried for a day we applied one coat of the BEHR #501 with 4" brushes. The next day we went to look at it and it appeared wet, but upon inspection, that is just how it looks. After 4 years, it still looks the same wet look as it did that first day after, with no graying or other fade as far as I can tell. We have since applied it to our 1405 sq ft home, and it took less than 5 gallons.I highly recommend this product, and all our guests who see it say the same thing- "Is that stain still wet?". Great product, great coverage, be careful not to overlap when you take a break and start back, a second coat makes it noticeably darker. Highly recommend that you pressure wash away any graying of your wood before applying, if you don't, it will be very dark. Fresh wood turns a beautiful reddish-gold color when this cedar naturaltone #501 is applied.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful Color and Easy Application I chose the Tugboat solid-color stain from the BEHR Premium Wood Coatings line when I needed to stain my deck. I’d read a lot online that you have to be really careful with stains because they can leave “lap marks,” but I found that the solid stain color was incredibly forgiving and I didn’t have a problem with it at all. It went on smoothly and dried pretty quickly, leaving the wood a beautiful chocolate-y brown hue. Within 24 hours, you can start walking on the deck (light traffic only is recommended) and by 72 hours, it’s fully cured. I worked on it a couple hours a day over a few days, working in the morning before it got too hot (and the bugs came out!), and it proved to be a really straightforward DIY project that I was able to complete all on my own.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from BEHR Premium Mildews I spent 3 years rebuilding/refurbishing my pier. I decided to use a BEHR Solid Color Waterproofing - After purchasing 33 Gallons and applying I noticed the area in the exposed area (not under the covered portion) is has mildewed. Note: I applied BEHR wood cleaner and pressured washed and let dry (2 Weeks) all areas before applying the Solid Color Waterproofing. I discussed this with the Home Depot paint department - they took my name/number and insured me the BEHR would call me within 24 hours - that was 6 months ago and I have not heard from them yet. Overall disappointed in the BEHR product and support.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy with it so far Used a dark grey on our porch and deck floors and white on the railings. Grey covered in one coat, white took two, but both look really nice. The porches and decks were made from treated lumber which shouldn't be painted for at least 3 months, we were told. The porch sat unpainted for a year and the deck for about 7 months. We stained them about 3 months ago and no problems with flaking or peeling or anything so far. The white didn't cover as smoothly as the grey--can still see some of my brush strokes, but all-in-all we're very pleased with the results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfectly Pleased We bought this as a "Hail Mary" to finish our back deck. The wood was old and the previous house owners had painted it with some cheap interior paint. When we finally got to the project (after owning the house for 5 years) we were worried that the wood was too far gone and would need to be replaced. After reading online about this product we got our belt sander out and started sanding away at the deck. Many hours later we were ready to paint the first coat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's OK for a water based product. Lasted well I've read the other reviews where people said the product lifted, scratched, etc. It makes me wonder how it was applied, and if the material was just not porous enough for the stain to sink in. I pressure washed the deck and applied the product with a pad, then backbrushed. I could definitely tell the difference between a water and oil based product. I didn't think this coating would last a year, but it was acceptable for about 3 or 4. The wood on my deck had weathered before applying, and I'm guessing that allowed better penetration than some people have had. I put on two coats the first time, and will likely do the same this time. A second coat evened the color out. I was scared the first time because it rained like crazy within about 48 hours of application. The rain caused the finished to be sort of blotchy, but after a few weeks it evened out again. For a water based product, this stuff is fine. I thought about applying oil this time, but water based is easier to work with.
