Questions & Answers

because it is water based, does it crack or peel?

Asked by: penny
yes, it does crack and peel. I used it on new pine boards for my outdoor gate last spring, the wood dried out from the 100+ degree temps over the summer in AZ, wood grain split, and this past winter the wood was soaked under this sealer. The boards are now dark brown and black in some spots from trapped water inside the wood. Grain is splitting. Will make your wood rot under the finish. This is like a paint which you don't want outdoors. You want a penetrating oil based sealer/water repellent with UV protection. This way the wood can still breathe and won't rot. I won't be wasting my money on this product again. Learned my lesson. It looked nice for a year until this winter when all the rain and cold weather came. Maybe it was because it was green (not fully dried) pine wood...... don't know, but I do know there's way better products out there and my fault for using pine. Redwood and Cedar are best outdoor woods along with oil based transparent penetrating stain with UV protection. This might be a good product for use with Kiln dried wood but, I would definitely make sure there is no splits or cracks in the wood before applying this stuff. Otherwise it's pointless.

How many sq ft will 1 gal of Behr Premium Wood Stain (semi transparent) cover?

Deck was previously stained but has been stripped.
Asked by: Barry
I used 1.3 cans for the two coats of about 400 square feet. DON'T BUY THIS STAIN - it looks like solid not a semi and stays tacky for weeks.

How long can I wait till 2nd coat? I've put 1st coat on floor and still sticky after 4 days now rain in forecast and might be a week till I can put a 2nd coat on floor. Is that too long? Should I even bother based on reviews I'm now seeing about this I wish I could take this back, I have a lot of time invested in this.

1 gal. #ST-118 Terra Cotta Semi-Transparent Waterproofing Exterior Wood Stain and Sealer is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 1636.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from So disappointed- looks like brown paint. I bought the semi-transparent wood stain and sealer, but... So disappointed- looks like brown paint. I bought the semi-transparent wood stain and sealer, but it really just looks like brown paint on my fence. The fence is made of cedar and is 5 years old. I prepped the fence by scrubbing off the old transparent stain which had actually worn off in lots of places already. Then I applied 1 coat of this using a roller. It drips easily but I thought they would disappear after drying yet it did not. Then I applied a second coat 2 days later and this did not cover the old drips and left new ones. The fence at this point just looks painted, not at all like a the real wood fence it once was. I sanded down the drip areas and thickly painted parts, and then applied a third coat using a hand brush. This looks better, but is a total pain. This looks nothing like the description or photos on the web. I put days into this project and it looks awful. But I am too burned out to get a paint stripper, then apply two coats of another brand.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buyer Beware! My Father and I applied this to his deck 6 years ago. We spent a significant amount of time prepping and cleaning the deck prior to applying this product per the instructions. In less than 2 years a significant amount of stain had flaked and peeled off the horizontal surfaces. The vertical surfaces are OK. Unfortunately my father is now 81, is not as mobile as he was 6 years ago and is legally blind. Do to his health issues we have not been able to address this problem until now. The deck is so bad 6 yrs out it is unfathomable to comprehend the amount of work it will take to get this deck looking somewhat presentable. There is a very large pergola and a lot of railing that was stained to match. Attempting to fix the horizontal surfaces to match is going to be very challenging especially since we have no intention of using Behr again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great at first My experience was almost identical to AsphaltCowboy's. I carefully followed all the instructions for deck preparation (mildew killer, cleaner, scrubbing, brightening, drying) and application (two thin coats). It looked amazing! But then after the winter it was flaking off in places, and in other places growing mildew. The same the year after. Less than 3 years into the 6-year guarantee, I'm having to power wash it off, replace boards that have developed rot, and basically start over. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The worst stain ever If you value your personal time and your money do not use this product. I had a brand new deck that i bought this stain for. I let the deck season for one year. I used Behrs wood cleaner before i put the stain down to make sure i had a clean surface for a nice bond. I'm so glad that i only painted the floor of the deck and not the entire thing. The deck looked great when i got done. However, within three months all of the stain started to pop up and began to look terrible. I just finised pressure washing, stripping and sanding the entire deck. I thought i was using a quality product that would save me time. So far i've spent about 7 hours to get the deck back to the way it was so i can use a real product. I've always been happy with behr paints inside but this event will probably keep me from buying any of their products again. It's terrible that products like this are out there. Don't waste your time or money. Use oil based products for the deck there is no way around it.

Product was pricey and required 2 coats for adequate coverage, but the biggest issue is the color. We purchased "redwood" and the stain did NOT come out like the color on the can/sample. It is orange, orange, orange! Thought it would dry darker but it didn't. Won't purchase again and do not recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 4 Months later, wood is absorbing water I applied this on my deck, about 25 years old. The deck was previously coated with a waterproofing product from a different manufacturer. I saw the advertisements for Behr having longer durability than others, and I decided to give it a try. 4 months later, rain water is not beading, but appears to be soaking into the wood. I used it according to instructions, the old clear waterproofing product was off, and no water was beading on the deck. Applied two coats of this product, used just about as much as is suggested based on the square footage for my deck, so I assume the thickness of the application was was at least in the right ballpark. I should add that the deck is barely used. We use our screened in porch, and the deck is next to it, but I only go out there to use the grill, even though that part of the deck is quite large. I think the color of the product is amazing - the deck looks spectacular. The only thing is that it doesn't appear to be 'weather proofing' the wood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks great!! I used this product on my fence a little over eight years ago and it’s been great. I’m surprised it lasted for as long that has. I used a different stain for my fence at my old residence and it only made it a few years. I’m in the process of restraining the fence at my house and it’s the exact color as the one I put on eight years ago. It’s such a great product. I recommend it to everyone who asks me what I use!!
