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.

can this behr product be used on a deck that has another waterproofer stain on it?

Asked by: 1234
I would suggest removing the old waterproofing stain first using either a stain stripper or an orbital sander and a medium grit sandpaper. If you don't, your new stain may not adhere correctly and could begin peeling ahead of the advertised warranty.

I have a bare wood fence, do I have to prime it before painting it? And if i have to, what type of primer should I use?

Asked by: Isko
Hello Isko, Thanks for writing in. The Semi-Transparent Waterproofing Stain and Sealer doesn’t require the use of a primer on new wooden surfaces. I highly recommend cleaning the surface with our No. 63 All-In-One Wood Cleaner before applying the new stain. If needed, lightly sand to remove any wood fibers/fuzz. I hope this helps and good luck on your project. Best, Roxana N.

8 oz. #ST-108 Forest Semi-Transparent Waterproofing Stain and Sealer Sample is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 99.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from applies easily I am not good at do-it-yourself projects. This product applies easily and looks great [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy this instead of the 3/5 year semi transparent I bought this product for my own home and bought the 3/5 year stain for my in-laws. They went cheap and you get what you pay for. The 6/8 year stain is still holding the color after 5 years while theirs faded at 3 years, They are going to have to paint again. The work of painting doesn't justify $7-8 per gallon difference in price. I'd rather be watching my kids play. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deck Makeover At first I was nervous that we would only be able to replace our deck because of the previous products used. The original product was a textured product that is actually in quite of a bind right now due to poor performance. Anyhow, it was an absolute nightmare to remove. After several trash bags full of the chipping paint, our only option was a pressure wash. That still did not do all of the work so we had to have the whole deck sanded. By now Im sure that you can imagine the time this consumed for about 400 sq ft. Finally it was time to stain the deck and we decided to go with semi transparent because the wood actually had some good life to it. The first coat went on and I was not sure that I was loving the color, after a few hours the second coat was applied and BAM! it looked really nice. I will say that it did require an extra gallon but i kind of expected that. It has only been 2 days now but it is looking nice and cant wait to actually be able to use my deck again. Hopefully it holds up for a few years but as of now i dont have much to go off of other than application. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

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 1 out of 5 by from 11 Months. Not 6-8 Years After reading the reviews on Home Depot I decided to try the Behr Semi-transparent deck stain tint base. I chose the chocolate color. I used the stain on a 400 sq ft NEW deck and a 600 sq ft previously stained playset/climbing structure. I allowed the new wood to season for 10 months. Both structures were properly prepared according to the instructions on the back of the can and I used all the recommended Behr products. I stained both structures in the fall of 2015 according to the directions on the back of the can. After staining it took 3 weeks for the product to “cure.” For 3 weeks my children could not use the playset/climbing structure and my family could not use the deck. During these 3 weeks the stain was tacky and would leave visible marks if touched. After the product finally cured it repelled water and worked. This fall of 2016 (only 11 months after application) the stain was bubbling, peeling, flaking, and visible mold was showing. The product only lasted 11 months; 1 of those moths was the “curing/hardening” months. This product did NOT last 6-8 years as advertised.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stain Our house was built 28 years ago. We have used many different brands of waterproofing, stain, wood preserver. They only lasted 1 year but we made it last 2. Wood would turn black in areas and bleach out from sun in other's. We always power washed first, which is an awful job to begin with. Just happen to stumble on to Behr Stain and Waterproffing. It has been on 6 years now and going strong! Wish we knew about this product many moons ago. We put it on by brush....so it would soak in better..worth it!

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.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Behr Works GREAT--Ease up on Power-Washing I plan to enter a more complete review later. I applied Behr Semi-Transparent Weatherproofing almost 10 years ago to a very lengthy fence and decks surrounded by wood railings; then, just last year, to part of a fence. We're finishing the fence shortly. Behr products are always simple to use, reliable, durable, and the best on the market at any price! As I was reading some of the reviews tonight, I noted that many negative results reported their diligence in power-washing prior to application. Yet, the All-in-One Wood Cleaner prep product warns against vigorous power-washing/-rinsing as this may harm the wood. I would imagine staining to be less successful with injured wood.
