    Excellent Water Protection and Looks Great
    We recently completed a deck extension project. After allowing sufficient time for the wood to dry, we decided to protect the surface using Thompson’s WaterSeal Waterproofing Stain. The Transparent Harvest Gold Stain adds a little color to the original wood, yet still allows the wood grains to be visible. Installation is very easy using a Painter’s Pad and it applied evenly throughout the deck, as long as you don’t stop and restart after it dries. It penetrates deep into the wood with one coat ... read more and dries in only 2 hours. Because it’s water-based, cleanup is also very simple. We are very pleased with the Thompson’s Waterproofing Stain for our new deck. It is perfect for protecting new decks or restoring older weathered decks.

    Thompson's seem to be even better than before.
    We got this waterproofing stain because we have some wooden sidewalk to protect. I have used Thompson's waterseal products in the past and had good results, that's why I picked it. This time, the waterseal seemed to cover better, after 2 days it rained. The rain drops looked like the water drops on my waxed car.

    Very good wood protector
    The "transparent" stain applied to treated wood on a deck results in a beautiful golden glow about the wood, and protects it against the elements. It makes a very nice job when finished. A word of caution: don't risk dropping one of the cans. The bottom is plastic, and a dropped can will burst, making a mess and wasting the product. An entirely metal can wouldn't have that packaging problem.

    Excellent Product
    Used this water proofer on our deck. Great results. However when we cleaned up our brushes, etc. killed the grass where we did this. So be careful when you clean up. Clean up is easy with water. We had actually bought 13 gallons before this one. Found out we were short. You can buy this in 5 gallon pails which is a little better deal. This is the second time we have used this product on our deck. Great product! Keep this product in stock.

    Ready Stain Wood Stain and Sealer
    The stain was easy to app[y, covers well and goes a long way, easy clean up. It has not finished drying yet, only been on a couple of weeks and the Lit. says it can take up to a month to dry, but I notice changes in the color every few days. This was used on a small parade wagon, pictures enclosed

    Awesome product but cans came dented
    I needed to stain a few sections of fence and did research online. This product is the one that keeps coming up. It was everything that they said; covers well, and is very forgiving--if you drip and then stain over it a little later, you don't still see the drip. I found I needed more than they said when I used a sprayer to apply it. One can covered one side of a 43 foot long fence (6 feet high), and 3/4 of a gate. I took a star off for the way it came, though. I used Home Depot ship to home. ... read more Even though the cans were well-padded inside a box, they were both badly dented, like they had been dropped. One was so bad I was surprised it wasn't leaking.

    Simplest, Easiest Stain I have ever used !!
    Simplest, Easiest Stain I have ever used. So easy to apply, so easy to Clean up Color soaks In evenly , reaches color in 5-7 days. Coverage was not quite as much as stated. I did not get 25 sq. ft per gallon. The fence is 7 years old and had been previously stained and sealed with Behr (don't recommend that one). Preparation using power washer to remove any remaining stain/sealer, Sprayed with 50% bleach and water mixture to remove any remaining grey coloring. Stained using $20 Home and Deck ... read more pump sprayer from home Depot. Easy to start and stop across multiple days. Purchased online and had at my door in 2-3 days! Highly Recommending this product !! We used the Dark Walnut.

    Darker than expected
    Formula must have changed since my original purchase 3 years ago. It was much darker this time, but still a very good product.

    Very Good Wood Stain
    This is a Very Good Wood Stain. Does not run, goes on easy and looks great. Is easy to clean up as well. This is a winner! I will be using it again. Do not hesitate if you're looking for a good wood stain. I am ordering another five gallon can for another coat next year. Just in case it's no longer available. Better safe than sorry! I used the Dark Walnut! Winner all the way!!! Oh by the way the shipping only took three days on both orders. I ordered two 5 gallon cans! Two separate shipments.

    Amazing Results on Weathered Deck
    The back deck on the house is 28 years old and has reached it's design life. However, about 8 years ago the 2X6 deck boards were carefully removed, turned over, and re-nailed back onto the support beams, revealing a fresh surface. To further extend the life of the deck, I have now decided to protect it with Thompson’s WaterSeal Waterproofing Stain in Harvest Gold. The solid formula was chosen due to the age of the deck. Surface preparation consisted of pressure washing and cleaning before ... read more application. I’m astonished at how good the deck looks now. It’s like a new deck Applying the Thompson’s WaterSeal Waterproofing Stain is very simple using an outdoor deck pad, deep well tray, and extension pole. It only requires one coat, applied liberally. The only word of caution is to not stop and restart along lengths of boards, or there can be a noticeable (minor) change in color. Cleanup is very easy being it’s a water-based formula. I highly recommend using Thompson’s WaterSeal Waterproofing (Solid) Stain for extending the life of aged and weathered decks. Of course rotten boards must be replaced.as needed.

    Very Pretty Color
    I applied this stain to the flooring of a portion of my deck which is old and has many blemishes. At first I thought it was an inferior product because it wasn't covering up the wood. Then I realized I was using a short matted roller cover instead of a fluffy one. Once I changed roller covers, the stain went on so smooth and covered the old deck flooring with ease. The color is pretty, especially when the sun shines on it. I love that everything cleans up with soap and water. Because my deck is ... read more older, I will be applying another coat of stain. I think on a fairly new deck, one coat might be enough though. On the next section of decking, I plan on using this color for the steps and railings. I think I might buy some small paint pads to apply this stain with. I either didn't have the right brush for touch up spots or it doesn't apply well using a brush. I really won't know the answer to this issue until I start the next section. I gave it 5 stars because it is worthy of them. Only time will tell how it holds up or if it peels like other brands I have tried in the past. So far I am happy with this solid stain by Thompson.

    Best Stain Ever!!
    I have used Ready Seal in the past, It is the most forgiving stain EVER,,,,if you spill, drip run etc, it spreads out evenly and blends in,,,,,,,,,and the very BEST part is,,,,,,,,you do not have to strip when you apply the next time, just wash your deck and go for it,,,,,,,,, We applied three years ago, the deck rails are still holding, but our deck is in full sun, and gets alot of traffic, so the floor needs done every year, but like I said before, wash your deck and reapply, we only put one ... read more coat on the deck.

    VERY EASY TO WORK WITH AND GREAT RESULTS.
    The only downside is having to order and wait for this product from Home Depot. We ordered and picked up at the store and it didn't take very long. This product is worth waiting for. It's easy to apply, goes on well and looks terrific! We used it to refreshen an older deck(9 years) after power washing it, and it made it look fresh and great. We are so happy with this product we will be applying it to a newer deck. I highly recommend it and wish it was in the stores!!! Happy Spring!!

    Great Product So Far
    I can't vouch for the longevity of this product, but it's fairly easy to apply. It's only been on a month or so. One thing we did was use a garden sprayer and it made it go faster than brushing. We used a brush to get on the tops of the boards; we were afraid of overspraying on the neighbor's house. We have large rock all around the base of our fence and it turned oily and brown, so covering any unwanted surface is a must. It seems quite expensive, as it'll take (2) 5 gallon jugs to do our ... read more fence, both sides. At $150 for a 5 gal jug that's spendy. However, if it lasts as long as it says it will, I could probably justify the price.

    Dificult to find, but worth it
    We have used this product on our deck for many years. It is no longer sold in Oregon, so we had it delivered to East Vancouver, WA. We were told that, if we changed products, we would need to strip the decks with chemicals. I am happy that we were able to avoid that extra work.

    Color Me Smooth
    My deck is over 25 years old and has seen a lot of staining. The last couple of times I noticed that the oil-based stains just weren't doing it for me anymore. So, I took a plunge and bought some latex-based stain. It went on thick and easy and dried to a beautiful smooth finish. Every time I go out on the deck, I take a moment to enjoy its rich color and smoothness. Best. Choice. Ever.

    Easy to apply and looks good.
    Ordered to cover new fence 8' x 64' board on board, 5 gallons covered the face side of the fence. Fence looks really nice. Blends in with the background better. Wife really likes the color. Used a combination of hand pump sprayer, brush, and roller. Used the sprayer to get the side edges and the face of the setback boards, used the brush to smooth it out, and used the roller for the face boards. Took a majority of the day to complete the job. The cover has no pour feature, think about getting a ... read more 5 gallon roller thingy, worked right from can. Used plastic container to scoop and poured into sprayer.

    Awesome!
    F & P have a great product here. Looks really nice, though I will suggest if you are painting a new fence to paint it sooner rather than later having to pressure wash, etc, the old. Can see a difference between the new/old fence but it covered up nicely on the old fence with a second coat. (in the picture new fence is left to middle of pic and then the old fence - old fence has more of a glossy look to it) Started using an electric spray gun (Wagner) and that worked for about 5 feet of the 1700 ... read more sq. ft, - a lot of solids in the stain even after straining. Went out and bought a Husky $35 dollar air compressor "sprayer" and the thing worked perfectly. - though I did still strain the stain before use. Water beads and runs right off the fence now and it looks really good!!

    Excellent product
    Applies easily - cleans up quickly - penetrates in wood quickly - consistent color - used it on my log home - only drawback was no pour spout - would have made it more easier to dispense - will use it again when needed.
