We purchased our home with a red dock and wanted to cover it to be more neutral. We bought the solid color waterproofing exterior wood stain and sealer in drift gray and love the results. We did two coats to get thin spots using a sprayer. The only prep we did was powerwashing, allowing a day to dry, then spraying the next day.

While the finish turned out very nice, the surface remains extremely tacky, even after multiple weeks. Will probably have to go with something else, disappointed.

Thank you for reviewing Behr Premium Semi-Transparent Waterproofing Wood Stain & Sealer. I’m sorry to hear about the tacky issue you’re having with our Semi-Transparent Waterproofing Wood Stain & Sealer. It certainly isn’t the performance we’ve come to expect from our products.
The stain should've dried to a hard finish within 72 hours, and I understand the concern with the stain remaining tacky for so long. A small test area can be gently cleaned with soap and water to remove the tacky top layer. The rest of the surface can be cleaned if the small test area feels less tacky after drying. If there is no difference in tackiness, it'd be best to strip, clean, and recoat.
Please contact Behr's Customer Care Department for further assistance with this matter. We'd love to find a way to help.

Used two coats for decking around inground pool. Sides were both unpainted new pressure treated wood as well as 15 year old previously stained wood.
Results are outstanding! Old wood has been rejuvenated and old stain areas have been covered.
Painter had not previously used this product, but was pleased with application, coverage and results.

The paint/stain applies easily and the coverage is very good. After power washing, I painted over an older redwood color with the Drift Gray and two coats did a great job of covering the old deck color. I hope it holds up for a few years, the deck is 20 years old and so far no paint or stain has looked descent after a couple of years.
