We have a cedar deck that is two years old and used Behr's color deck water proofing, it not only looked terrible after a short time, but now we are having to strip and sand our entire deck to reapply. We are looking for a different product that would be easier to maintain. With Behr products you are only suppose to put down one coat. Our contractor did the same as yours and it took forever to dry. Then the finish flaked and peeled when the rains came. I hope a knowlegable person replies to you soon.
