So I wanted to weather protect my back deck and thought that I would go with the behr 6 to 8 year semi-transparent weatherproofing wood coating. I used the recommended cleaner prior to coating.
I coated the deck and then added a second coat per the instructions. After 72 hours the deck was still tacky. I called behr and they said that I over applied and told me to wash the deck with detergent. I did that and still tacky. I did the math and also found that I didn't overcoat but hit right in the center of what I was supposed to put down. I did everything right according to the directions on the container.
Just to prove that I wasn't crazy, I bought a small sample of this same stain protectant and coated a new oak board at various thickness levels. IT IS TACKY ON ALL OF THEM!.
I tried to put my furniture back on the deck and it has started chipping/gouging into the coating.
So now what? will this stuff ever cure? it's been 8 days.
