Customer reviews for 1-gal. Clear Gloss Finish Log Cabin Home

1-gal. Clear Gloss Finish Log Cabin Home

The BEHR 1-Gallon Gloss Water Clear Log Home Finish is great for use on log- and timber-frame houses, siding, fencing and more. It features a waterproof water-based formula with mildewcide that also resists damage from UV rays and mildew. The 1-gallon can covers areas up to 400 sq. ft. The stain dries to the touch in 12 hours and should be reapplied after 1 day for best results.

This is an amazing product for cedar logs especially since i live in the midwest where humidity is high. Goes on easily and mixes easily. This is the best finish for cedar and enhances the wood nice!
Pros: Even Application, High Quality of Material, Easy to Apply, Easy Instructions, Good Coverage, Easy to Clean, Easy to Use, Good Protection, Looks Great, Looks High End, Modern, Dries Quickly
Cons: stores dont carry locally -

No, I do not recommend this product.
For the past 8 years I have been buying Behr 'clear' wood protector from Home Depot for my front porch. I came up HD several weeks ago to buy a gallon of it again and was told that Behr doesn't make it anymore. So I came home, went on line, wrote to Behr and they wrote back telling me that I need to buy Log Cabin #15 clear wood protector. So I did. When I put the second coat on my front porch, I thought it was shiny just because it was still wet. It's still shiny and I don't like the looks of my porch at all! It looks stupid. Behr should have same something like, "it has a marine finish" but I didn't see that written on the label anywhere. I would really like my money back.
I have the receipt and 'pick up confirmation' paper work and there is still some left in the gallon can. Let me know if I can bring up the remains and get a refund. This is NOT the finished look I wanted for my porch.

I've been using this now for 5 years on a log home after stripping off an oil-based "natural" product as described by previous homeowner. The oil based product was the first product applied to a brand new log home and mildewed/black mold under the finish requiring the 3-step Behr stripping process before refinishing.
Behr Log home finish is better than Thompsons or Behr waterproofing finsih for logs as it does not require stripping each few years to re-seal/recoat. Just wash off the dust or lightly pressure wash and add coats to build finish. Still is glossy and waterproof after applying two years ago. Waterbased for easy clean-up and completing small areas at a time. Way cheaper than sikens and the specialty brand log home finishes which if you read some reviews have still had mold issues under finish. Behr appears to resist bugs/termites also. Special order it in 5-gal size during the annual $20/off paint sales for best deal.
Pros: Easy to Apply, Good Coverage, Easy to Clean, Looks Great, Dries Quickly

We have a cedar planked fence that has a huge southern exposure. We wanted to keep the fresh cedar look but every sealer would fall off in one year. The Log Cabin product has lasted 3 years now. We just bought some more to put an extra coat to freshen it up.
Pros: Even Application, High Quality of Material, Good Coverage, Looks Great, Looks High End, Dries Quickly
