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.

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.

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

When I opened the can it looked like brown mustard. I put it on my deck that has never had stain on it for 35 years. I only clean and normally use another brand sealer. Which has done wonderful all these years. This Behr brand has a 5 year warranty, 3 more years than the other brand. Decided I would try it. The deck now has yellow streaks in it. I did it a week ago. It has not rained. I don't know how long this will hold up. I will wait till next year when I clean the deck again. But as of right now I won't buy it again until I know how well it does.

Each year I used a different waterproofing product to coat the logs on the outside of my home. I went to Home Depot at the recommendation of a Behr rep I tried the waterproofing wood finish and clear. Two coats went on very easy and the poles went from bleached out to a beautiful honey color. Thank you!

We bought a Graceland shed a few years ago that looked like the painter had stood 10" away when spraying the finish on. Very well built building but a very poor finish. 10x12 building took 2 gallons hand brushed on because of the dry siding absorbing the finish. Looks great now and repels rain and snow and any dirt that splashes up is easily hosed off. Will be buying more for many outside projects.
