Questions & Answers

This product (#64) is a "stripper". does that mean that I will essrntially be stripping off the old paint?

Asked by: James
It will not remove paint very well. From other reviews, it appears to remove stains. As I suspected, my deck was painted, not stained. I went through a few gallons and hours of frustration to confirm this. As in other forums, finding the proper stripper can be trial and error, unless you know yourself what coating type was used before (I did not). I will be going with a belt sander rather than spend hours and a few hundred dollars finding the "right" stripper.

Must product/stripper be neutarlized before re-sealing?

Asked by: Miffer
Products active ingredient is Sodium hydroxide, also known as lye and caustic soda, it's an oxidizer. It a alkaline product which can be neutralized with acids like Boric, Oxalic acid bought at paint stores and typically called "wood brighteners or wood cleaners", vinegar also works full strength. All of the acid washes will need to be THOROUGHLY rinsed. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sodium_hydroxide Now you know a bit more about the chemical you're working with, let's get back to the question; Should you neutralize the product after a THOROUGH rinsing as directed on the label? Yes if you are reapplying a water-based coating and no if you're reapplying an oil-based coating.

Will this strip your Behr solid stain from my deck?

Will this strip your Behr solid stain from my deck?
Asked by: newatdiy1
Hi newatdiy1, thanks for writing in with your question. Yes, our Wood Stain and Finish Stripper, (No. 64) will remove the solid stain. Apply liberally using a brush or roller and keep the surface wet by misting with water and reapplying No. 64. Most finishes will start to deteriorate after 5-45 minutes. Use a stiff bristle broom and rinse thoroughly. Repeat the application as needed, or spot sand the leftover stain. Please reach out to us directly if you have any other questions or concerns. Good luck with your project! -Giovanna

BEHR Premium 1-gal. Wood Stain and Finish Stripper is rated 2.7 out of 5 by 479.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does Not Work I bought two gallons this product today in an effort to strip the paint off of my deck so that I could apply a new stain onto it. We have a relatively small deck, its 10x10. Seeing that the paint on my deck was only tearing off slightly, I applied both gallons of this stripper across the deck. After twenty minutes, I went to check on the deck and to my disappointment, there did not seem to be any reaction. I stumbled onto many negative reviews as I was searching for where I could have messed up. However, I did not want to think my time and efforts were in vain, and continued to monitor the deck for the next hour. Nothing. This product should not be the recommended brand by Home Depot. I even went as far as to try scraping some paint off with a metal paint scraper, but to no avail. I'm not sure if I should try to return these two gallons, but this was a waste of money, 2 hours, and potentially my right lung from inhaling these fumes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Turned out working great I was very hesitant trying the Behr stripper on my deck after reading many of the bad reviews. In fact I started to paint stripping job with another product that I had to spray on. After quickly running out of the brand X stripper because I had to use way more stripper than I planned, I wanted to keep moving with my work so I begrudgingly bought the Behr stripper at my local Home Depot. Well to my total surprise and shock, it worked great. I was way better than the more expensive spray on stripper. I have no idea how long the previous paint was on the deck or what was on the deck since the previous owner put it on, but the Behr stripper worked fine. When using it, plan on letting the product sit on the deck for a half hour to 45 minutes, and use the hard bristle brush to help it out. Power was the residue off and repeat. Honestly, the boards turned out looking almost like new. I would definitely use this product again, especially after the other highly rated and way more expensive product I originally used did not work nearly as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product works. Really works. I’m leaving a review because I can’t figure out why anyone would leave a negative review of this product if used as directed. We just finished building a beautiful new deck. After waiting a few weeks I applied a semi-transparent / solid deck stain in a dark mahogany color. It looked awful. I hated that the stain masked almost all of the wood grain. I felt sick because I thought I had ruined my deck. This stuff is literally a lifesaver. I’m actually stunned at how easy it was, because nothing is ever easy with home improvement. I wet the deck with my pressure washer, applied the product with a large paint brush, and waited 40 minutes, misting the deck every 10 minutes to keep the product wet. After 40 minutes I rinsed the deck with my pressure washer and 95% of the dark stain was gone. I repeated the process, waiting only 20 minutes the second time and was 100% successful. It’s as though the mahogany nightmare never happened.

Last year I sanded my entire deck and steps down. It took two days. This year I stripped and cleaned it and it only took 4 hours! I needed to remove transparent Sikkens deck stain because about 1/3 of it had worn off in heavy traffic areas (it had only been on for 1 year). I followed the directions to a T and the stain literally brushed right off after waiting the 45 minutes and keeping the surface wet. I used a deck brush (like a stiff bristled mini broom - it was perfect). Then when I used my garden hose to wash it off, it all came off easily, even some spots between the rails were by broom was too big to fit. I followed this up with Behr deck cleaner and again, brushed up more yuck with the brush before using the garden hose to wash it off. Again, it all rinsed off easily. No toxic smells! I am very impressed. Now I need to see if my Behr semi-transparent stain will adhere to the wood and last longer than the transparent Sikkens I’ve been using and re-applying yearly for the past 6 years.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wish I would have read the reviews I bought this to strip off solid stain deck color and boy was this a waste of money. I bought 2 bottles that basically smelled horrifically and did a god awful job of taking the stain off anything but a brand new board. I watched tons of videos on how to strip a deck and followed the instructions and I got more use out of my pressure washer which didn't even do a good job. You can see the picture was the after attempt and many frustrated hours. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I bought the product despite all the negative reviews because it didn't seem like people were using the product correctly and I used Behr stain on my deck, I figured it better work for their own stain. This stuff actually works, but it's for semi-transparent stains, not solids. Tips to make it work: Don't bother rinsing it off until the paint has raised, just leave it on and mist it with your hose or garden sprayer to keep it wet, brush occasionally with a stiff brush, eventually the paint will be sitting on top of the wood. I didn't rinse off until I could completely brush the stain around freely. If there are spots where it's not coming up, just put some more on and keep misting and brushing. Works best in the shade it seems like. It dries very fast in direct sunlight, needs to stay wet to work. Attached is my deck halfway done. Came inside to finish later, too much direct sun on the rest of the deck. The product will darken the wood; following with a wood brightener/cleaner is required.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The secret is how wet and how long! I too was skeptical after reading reviews about this product and because previous experience with similar products has confirmed that these things just don't work as expected. However, I was more than delighted at the results after I worked with the Stripper for a short time. I realized that the secret was wetting the deck, applying the stripper, waiting for it to turn "white" and then rewetting, not misting, wetting! It seems to work its best when allowed to sit with a very wet surface. And also by applying with a roller which spread it evenly and not too thin, not too thick. Also saved time! Yes there were a few small areas that needed a second treatment, but it literally power washed off. My results were very satisfying, I was removing two applications of deck stain, that were applied over a ten year period on a 30 year old deck. It actually did what it said it would do and I would certainly recommend it to others.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Behr Wood Stain and Finish Stripper is a Joke I have a deck that is 19 years old. People are amazed how good it looks. I strip and stain it every two years. Every time I strip it, it is down to the wood. Took me about 3 to 4 hours to complete this job with another brand. I tried Behr Wood Stain and Finish Stripper this year. Applied it liberally. I let it stand within the time range as instructed on container - 35 minutes. I scrubbed with a bristle brush. I used a high pressure hose (within the range suggested on the container) to rinse. NOTHING VISIBLE CAME OFF. I scrubbed again. A few bits of paint came up. I applied a second coat...same process except let it stand 45 minutes...same results. I used almost an entire container on about 25 square feet and I have invested about 4 hours of time into this. THIS PRODUCT DOES NOT WORK! MY RECOMMENDATION TO USERS, FIND SOMETHING ELSE. MY RECOMMENDATION TO HOME DEPOT...GET IT OFF YOUR SHELVES. TERRIBLE PRODUCT - AVOID IT COMPLETELY. I WOULD RANK IT ZERO IF THIS RANKING WAS AVAILABLE.
