We used natural NO.500 and the store doesn't have this color. They stated Clear 500N is the same. They look different.

Asked by: Vic
Behr Representative, Ran in to this same problem. Is there a recipe for tinting (how much tint needs added)? I have half a project done, and they are not the same at all. Not sure if individual store will know the formula to tint, so I am wondering if you can help. CP

Questions about transparency and durability

There is some color to the Natural Transparent finish, so why is it called transparent? The color is lovely, but I'm curious. Also, hope it holds up. Wish I had read some of the reviews of this product before totally relying on Home Depot's recommendation to buy it. As I search the net, the reviews are really mixed, more negative than I had hoped. Please tell me the stain won't start coming off in a year. The can says four years! Thank you.
Asked by: teamedup
It is what I would call semi-transparent, some color with a clear coating. It is not very durable, so if it will be getting quite a bit of wear I would try something different. I have had good success with Olympic.

1 gal. #T-172 Natural Sequoia Transparent Waterproofing Wood Finish is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 917.

I had my deck power washed before and applied it 2 weeks later. If anyone is wondering. I put it on in 87 degree temps and it rained 5 hours later and it didn't ruin it. The water started beading when it rained. It's easy to apply and the color is great. I would use this again. I took me and my mom about 7 hours total. We had to stop on the first day because we ran out of this. I'm so glad I didn't pay someone $2000 to do this for me. It looks good for an amateur. There's a couple of spots that are bad, because the coat overlapped. But all in all I'm happy. Just do one coat. That's all you need.

Although it states "transparent" it is not , but the color is great and shows the grain, glad I didn't go with the "semi transparent". Good coverage, but follow the instructions to have even coverage. Help from the actual Behr rep at the St. Petersburg store, regarding colors, type of brush and rollers to use, was a big plus. Thanks

This is NOT clear nor transparent. Behr informed us it's not -due to a UV protection ingredient. They know this ingredient has the effect of a colorant additive but still market it as "clear & transparent". OUR BRAND NEW DECK IS UGLY. It's a color we would never of chosen. The whole point of cedar was to enjoy its beauty. We now have to strip the entire deck, clean the products off the wood, prep it and find a true clear sealer. I do not expect the wood to ever regain the beauty it had before this product ruined it. Do not expect clear/transparent from this product.

Too much work for me to start over with a different color.

Deck stains are never perfect - but I used this based on CR testing and am a bit disappointed. The redwood color is more like old pepto- bismol and it seems to look & feel rather plastic. Used it on my new redwood slat fence. Did some sanding but didn't see the need to clean since it was newly installed one month prior. Application looked same on sanded & non-sanded areas. Also took a few weeks to dry without tackiness. ... we'll see how it goes. Wish they would offer a clear product that you can add small amounts of toner to get a more reasonable color ... not the full pigmented stain which is frankly always ugly from most manufacturers....!

We used this product about 8 years ago and it doesn't last so we have had to scrape peeling areas and reapply every year. Our porch looks horrible with lighter peeled areas recoated and darker areas where the stain stuck. Now it has come down to scraping peeling areas and sanding the whole porch to get rid of it once and for all. Terrible product. I see the Behr stain stripper also has reviews of 1.5 out of 5 so no help removing this really poor product. If you want to spend a lot of time removing peeling stain and sanding and prepping the wood for a better quality product this is for you - so far we have spent days on our large porch. I will never use another Behr product - EVER.

I previously used the deck over on my deck and not only did I need several cans of it which cost me a pretty penny but it was also difficult to put on. I mistakenly did not power wash the deck before hand so its now peeling...not evenly of course and to scrap off the remainder is not easy (power washing the peeling paint does not help). I powerwashed the remaining two decks which really brought out the beautiful color. This clear waterproofing just enhances the color and the water beads right off. I absolutely recommend this product...and the color
