I powerwashed my two year old cedar deck (with a national brand product), let it dry thoroughly then used Behr Water Proofing Wood Sealer and Finish last year. Now, after this winter - the product is pealing in multiple areas and the deck looks horrible. Any suggestions?

Was the wood dry before applying the deck sealer? If not this can cause the product not to adhere to the wood cause moisture to develop under the sealant.

The only way to remove the old waterproof/sealer is to us a good stripper. Also be careful using a power washer they can damage the wood fibers if the spray is set too high.

You will be using some serous elbow grease to get the waterproof/sealer out.

I have some links that might help you here at

One thing have you contacted Behr? Here is a link to Behr for help/question go to

Hope the helps. Good Luck.
