Questions & Answers

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.

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

Asked by: penny
I've used this particular stain/sealer for several years. If you properly prepare the surface before staining (sand to remove all loose previous finishes) it will last many years. I have previously used Thompson's and got less than a year of service. I'm now on 4 years with the Behr stain and it looks as good as the day I installed it. I'll never use Thompson's or any other brand again.

Appled in summer, how long before stained deck can handle foot traffic?

Asked by: jd105
Once it is "dry." For my family it took the product 3 weeks to "cure" and not be sticky to the touch.

Is this tranparent weatherproofing wood stain tint base used before or after you paint

Asked by: Barbara
Hello Barbara, Thanks for your question. That's right--this is a standalone product, so there wouldn't be a coating under or over it. Best wishes for your project!

1 gal. Semi-Transparent Waterproofing Stain and Sealer is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 184.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks Brand NEW !! We stained our play-scape and patio cover with BEHR Chocolate semi-transparnet stain. Both are 17 years old and needed serious attention. The stain has given a fresh look to our backyard and the play-scape and patio look brand new! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Label on can states that the stain will last 4 years. Didn't last a year. Product is peeling in several spots. This product might be ok for fences but on horizontal surfaces, it is a joke. The biggest problem is all the work I have to do to strip off the old Behr acrylic and prepare the deck surface for a oil based product. I had hoped to use a water-based, less toxic material but I should have known better. Apparently the only less work intensive alternative is to put the same inappropriate product on again this year.

I was told I needed to purchase the Behr wood cleaner prior to applying this product. I had already power washed the deck to prepare it. I had to purchase 2 gallons as I didn't have enough even tho according to directions I should have. This whole project took many hours of time and $$ while working full time and caring for an ailing husband. So sad my entire project was a waste of time!! Wish I had read the negative reviews prior to purchase. The sales man at Home Depot convinced me this was the best I could buy. This was all done at the end of summer 2016, come Spring 2017 and the deck is peeling all over!! I will never shop home depot again and will let everyone I know not to purchase Behr products! Might have been a good product at one time but no longer...

Big deck project last August. 550 sq ft of tight-knot cedar, brand new material. Prepared the deck boards exactly as directions specified: washed and scrubbed the lumber with Behr Deck Cleaner, thoroughly rinsed (power washer) and dried 24 hours in the sun. Sanded and damp-wiped the dust. Boards were beautiful and smooth. Used a 6" Deck brush to apply the two prescribed coats (2 hours apart) to all 4 sides of the boards. Mounted the deck and it was beautiful. Then winter came and along with it the rain. Now, heading again into Summer, the stain is flaking off everywhere. This was "supposed" to be a 6 year stain, but lasted not even one year and needs to be sanded off and refinished now. Pretty lousy stuff. Now, I have an all-weekend sanding, cleaning and re-staining job ahead of me.

Left an opaque semi-gloss to gloss finish that did not dry or cure. Prepped a set of old, unfinished wood porch stairs with the Behr All-in-One Wood Cleaner. Washed and let dry for days. Light sanded and cleaned with pressurized air and brush. Applied product with brush on 75-degree day. Went on sort of like a stain, but set like poor quality gloss latex paint. 24 hours later: product did not cure and left a sticky semi-gloss to gloss opaque finish. Too late in the season to strip and start over. Stuck with gummy porch steps. Seems as if the drying agent was absorbed by the old wood leaving non-drying gloss medium and color on top. Terrible! Again: definitely NOT a stain. On the plus side the California Rustic color matches the old house shutters here in Vermont and brushes clean up with water.
