    Excellent product
    I. Applied this product to an old fence that had some new slats. Made the old thing look respectable again.

    Perfect Wood Stain
    This wood stain is perfect for any wood dark or light. It is thick and could cover a large amount of bare wood. Perfect color. Looks natural.

    Deck railing
    Great job filling and protecting older deck railing, leaving the grain showing in the wood so it doesn't look like a paint job.

    Wonderful !
    The product mixes easily and goes on smoothly. Water beads within four hours of application. Apply only to bare wood products and ensure complete coverage, We applied with both sponge and bristle brush. Only one application is necessary. Love this product. We are using on all of our bee hives and bird feeders/boxes.

    Easy to use
    Was easy to use and apply. Seems to work well, but as this is a wood preservative product it is hard to rate it as only time, hopefully many years, will tell.

    I'm telling everyone I know about it!
    So glad we found this product. Really easy to use - just mix powder with 1 gallon of water. It's non-toxic, no nasty fumes and cleans up with water. It's also about half the cost of a traditional stain! We used it to pre-treat our boards before building raised veggie garden beds. A helpful tip: You can bring your mixed product (buy an empty paint can to simplify things) to the paint department and have them tint it using a "quick dispense" tint, with any color you want. They don't even ... read more charge for it. We used the color "cedar" because we didn't want the grey/patina look.

    Excellent Product! Well worth the price!
    We chose this color to finish a fence that we had started putting the "no tint" product on. Home Depot doesn't seem to be carrying that color anymore. This seemed the closest match. Athough it was slightly darker, when you stand away from the fence you really can't tell where this new color begins. I like the UV protection in the product as we live in sunny south Florida where the fence takes a constant beating. This was a resealing project after about 10 years. We mixed it in a 1/3 to 2/3 ratio ... read more with the clear product to lighten the color. It went on easily and beautifully. The fence looks like new again!

    Excellent product
    Product applies easy used it on a treated pine fence minimum back brushing needed. Sprayers all worked and product stain color was consistent using multiple bottles from different shipping dates.

    Great
    This stuff is great. I built a fence along the side of my house and coated it with this product about 6 months ago. It looks the same as the day I put it on even with the hot Florida sun.. I found coverage is less than what is stated but I probably put it on a little thick. Application is a breeze with the included sprayer. It is almost like a plastic-like covering. Water beads right off like a freshly waxed car. I selected the tawny cypress for the color. Wasn't to sure about it at first, but ... read more the more I look at it the more I like it. Completely satisfied with this product.

    Good Deck Coating
    Easy to apply and dries very quickly! Coverage rate not correct on can but that was expected from other reviews. Will need a second coat.

    Great coverage
    When I opened the first can I thought it had not been mixed. I used my drill mixer and found that it was the consistency of chocolate pudding. It went on with roller and brush and covered well. I covered a 12 by 40 deck in one coat.

    Great product
    Great product. My local store had a great sale on this product for 19.96 and purchased two cans. Deck looks great.

    Good product, easy to work with
    I used this stain on 27-year-old rough-sawn cedar lap siding, that was last stained 6 years ago. It was lightly power-washed and allowed to dry for 3 days before staining. Reading other users describe this stain as "dark", I thought I would try it, since I didn't mind if the outcome was dark brown & the price fit my budget. When applying this stain it does go on incredibly dark, but as you can see from the photo, it lightens up after just a few days. (photo is after 9 days of drying) This stain ... read more flows smoothly, covers/soaks in well, and is not too overpowering with VOC's. I used a brush on the siding, and a roller and brush on the deck (which is 20+ year old & pressure-treated). I got about 250 sq ft covered per gallon. Time will tell how it holds up to the sun and rain here in the mid-Atlantic.

    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!!

    Love This Product

    Cabota Timber Oil Finish
    I build outdoor furniture and do pretty well until it comes to finishing . I used Cabots on our log home first and saw how well it held up. I now use it on the furniture I build and couldn't be happier. It's practically full proof in it's application. It gives you time to fix runs and bare spots and can be wiped smooth after being allowed to penetrate a while. (Depending on temp and humidity). I can increase the sheen to suit me with additional coats and the coverage is exceptional. I don't ... read more recommend things as a rule, but Cabots gets my whole hearted endorsement , and I'm grateful to have discovered it.

    Fabulous oil
    We are oiling a cedar home and garage....when we started putting it on I hated it....murky color. BUT within a hour it was gorgeous.....So expect what happens when applying...the wood is so beautiful now we are purchasing 5 more cases to finish the job....Marion from Mendocino

    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.

    Excellent Product!
    I built my new deck late last summer and wanted to let the wood cure and dry out really well before staining. I chose Thompson's Waterproofing Stain and it was a very pleasant surprise! The one gallon coverage according to the can was up to 400 square feet. I bought 2 gallons for my 10x40 deck. I was extremely pleased with the ease of application and how far the product went. I did my entire deck, some steps, and 3 benches with only one gallon! Dried in one hour (hot sunny day). Dries to a satin ... read more finish, and the water beading is incredible. Highly Recommended!

    Behr Works GREAT--Ease up on Power-Washing
    I plan to enter a more complete review later. I applied Behr Semi-Transparent Weatherproofing almost 10 years ago to a very lengthy fence and decks surrounded by wood railings; then, just last year, to part of a fence. We're finishing the fence shortly. Behr products are always simple to use, reliable, durable, and the best on the market at any price! As I was reading some of the reviews tonight, I noted that many negative results reported their diligence in power-washing prior to application. ... read more Yet, the All-in-One Wood Cleaner prep product warns against vigorous power-washing/-rinsing as this may harm the wood. I would imagine staining to be less successful with injured wood.

    LOVE this product!
    We have always used Behr stains in recent years and have been more than happy with the results. The color is outstanding and the weatherproofing lasts for years. Before we found Behr, we had used another product and it was a waste of time and money. We made upgrades to our lattice-topped cedar fence last summer and used Behr to finish it off and it still looks incredible. The color has not faded one bit and I'm sure it won't for years to come.

    Best value for staining a fence
    We are staining our fence and are pleased with the color. It is also easy to apply and offers protection from the elements.
