Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Stain [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I use the Cedar Naturaltone transparent stain. The product applies well and looks great! It's my "go to" stain for my deck!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Tacky after following directions. After 5 days my deck is still tacky. Feels like soda was spilled on the entire thing!! I asked for the fastest drying clear protectant because I have giant st. Bernards and a huge covered beautiful redwood deck. So the guy at home depot recommended this. 5 days later, they still can't go on it. I did what the back of the can said to do. And now I've looked up how to fix and it seems like a NIGHTMARE to fix for a giant deck. Very frustrating that it's tacky. The 1st coat wasn't tacky at all. I should have just went with my judgment and left it at 1 coat. But the can said to apply 2 thin coats so, I'm assuming it was over applied.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible color, hard to apply Purchased the redwood “transparent” stain. It is neither the color of redwood nor is it transparent. This stuff goes on more like an acrylic paint. Coving most of the wood grain, and in a bright red color like a barn. Two coats are overpowering. Did I mention it’s difficult to apply? Dries incredibly quickly, and looks splotchy after one coat, even when applying. I just applied it last weekend, so I don’t have info on the longevity. At $34/ gallon basically ruined my cedar deck. Do not purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful finish, beautiful colors [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Stained our deck to match our house with a beautiful moss green color. Also did the fence we put up around the air conditioning unit. Looks classy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lives Up To The Hype! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We have lived in our house for 8 years. 7 years ago we stained out treated wood fence with Behr Transparent Waterproofing Wood Finish in Antique Oak. I am preparing to put another coat on it, but honestly it doesn't look like it needs it. My main reason for adding the new coat is because we added another section of fence and I want it to match what we have, so we're going to re-stain everything. They say it lasts up to 6 years, but we're over 7 and it looks like it could go another 2 or 3 before really needing it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good product , little thick when applying [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] bought this for a wood stain project, worked well with a paint brush , would jam up a little with a sprayer

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy application. Looks great! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We use this for our boat dock, ramp and stairs. Easy to apply and after six months still looks great. Preserves the natural color of the wood.

Can Behr Premium Transparent Waterproof wood finish be used on pressure treated wood on our deck and if not what would u recommend

Asked by: Georgie girl
I don't think so. This product didn't last for a long time (only 7 months) and started chipping.

What type of  waterproofing finish do you recommend for a brand new cedar deck.I want the finish to be transparent to retain the natural colour of the wood.  Behr Premium Transparent Waterproofing (Acrylic) or the Behr Premium Penetrating Oil? 

Asked by: Lola
Hello Lola, Thanks for reaching out. Both of these products are an excellent choice and offer the benefits you’re looking for. The Penetrating Oil Wood Finish is easy to apply and may need annual maintaince. The Premium Transparent Waterproofing Wood Stain offers up to a 4 year warranty on decks. I hope this information is helpful and good luck with your project. Best, Roxana N.

Does this work well with pressure treated wood? I am cleaning the deck with Behr all in one wood cleaner, and was wondering if this would be a good choice for a 15 year old deck that has never been treated?

Asked by: Mgregs
Hello, Great question. Yes, our stain can be used on pressure treated wood. However, for a 15 year old deck, I would suggest going with our Semi-Transparent Waterproofing Wood Stain & Sealer. Best regards, Kevin

What is the best way to apply this product?

Asked by: Anonymous
I used a pad applicator and a brush in the spaces to get the board edges. Since the product failed completely witihin a year, I figure it doesn't matter what you use to apply it. In fact, if you throw it away now without applying it you'll be spared the expense of stripping it off when you decde to apply a different finish.

Is the mildewcyde effective with Western Red Cedar decks

My mother-in-law used an oil-based finisher oh her cedar deck that had a mildewcyde yet still had mildew/fungus growth within 6 months and had to scrape her whole deck. Is this going to happen with this product?
Asked by: Anonymous
Mold and mildew is an airborne spore that can land on any surface and grow if the conditions are right typically found in moist and shady areas. While Behr paints and stains contain mildewcides which helps the coating resist mildew, they are not mildew proof. Mildew will use surface dirt and debris as a food source and flourish if periodic cleaning is not performed. Mildew must be thoroughly removed with a sodium hypochlorite (bleach) solution prior to painting or staining a surface, because if a coating is applied over it, it will grow through the coating and continue to be a problem. Behr’s No. 62-N Mildew Remover can be used to remove mildew.

Behr No 50101 can be used on most types of wood that are not too dense such as HardiPlank. The No. 50101 can be used on pine wood.
