    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.

    My favorite coating for a deck
    I have tried many stains and similar products over the years. I tried the rubbol SIkkens (one of the new generations of opaque 'stains' and coatings). I had a very weathered, and grey deck. I repaired the worse boards, and painted everything else with SIkkens Rubbol Solid. I double coated everything; especially as it was very dry, and I filled in any cracks etc. It was a thicker product than most I have used. It dries quickly (follow the instructions - especially don't use it when the wood is ... read more not completely dry). I love the results! It feels underfoot, wears very well, and rejuvenates,and preserves, old decking. I used it on my dog eared fences, too!

    great product
    It was just as easy as the video from their web site said it was. If you are applying this to a older deck order more than think you need. The old wood really soaks up this product. I have a 17 yr old presser treated 20x40 deck and bought 15 gallons, and only was able to get one coat applied. It looks great. I love the product well worth the wait for delivery and the extra cost of the other things on the self nothing else compares.

    Covers Great
    This stain covered great using both a sprayer and a brush or roller. It was also easy to pour out of can with no mess or waste. Clean up was no problem just some soap and water

    Best Stain for Decks
    After using a number of other products called stains on my deck, which later had to be sanded off, I started using Ready Seal which is an oil based product and does what it is supposed to do, soak into the wood and repel water. I like this product because it is goof proof, spots with heavy stain will soak in and blend over the area.

    Look no further, I already did the research, as good as Sikkens if not better & more reasonably priced
    After doing months of research & speaking to friends, family, coworkers & painting contractors, I chose this product after I pressure washed & sanded my deck lightly. I applied it according to the instructions, I did however run out twice & had to re-order twice since it is sold online only to NJ. The coverage info is way off, but I should have known better since my deck has never had anything put on it since I built it.Just the deck surface is 16' X 32' (512 square ft) & also I also stained the ... read more top rail & spindles. I ended up using just about 8 gallons. As per the instructions, you CAN NOT put a second coat on after it dries or it will look horrible since it does not penetrate the wood & lays on top & leaves a nasty sheen so I recommend you put a liberal non puddling coat on using a 3/8 nap roller & a brush on the spindles all at once. (forget about a sprayer, I tried it & wasted too much) Many of the past reviews helped me choose this product & I owe thanks to everyone. I stained the top side in the fall & the spindles a few months ago. My friend just used Sikkens & it was priced much higher, my father's neighbor also used it & said he needed a second coat as it seemed to fade fast. I guess time will tell how this product holds up, they say you will get an estimated 3 years out of it. So far, it is beading water like crazy & made it through a winter of snow & ice laying on it. Good luck, bottom line, I would recommend it.

    Met and exceeded my expectations.
    Wolmans's F & P Preservative met and exceeded my expectations. The product spread easily, was low odor, seemed to penetrate into the wood well, produced a deep cedar tone (maybe a shade too dark) and looks attractive. The only negatives were is somewhat dark cedar tone, the long dry time and, if using previously treated or finished wood, the surface must be very thorougly sanded to allow the product to penetrate. But the positives overcome these negatives and the product is very satisfactory and ... read more will leave your wood,especially cedar, in great condition. Ordering and shipping went extremely well and the product arrived in just a few days at a reasoanble cost for shipping.

    Excellent product for the money
    Had treated half of our cedar fence with penofin (cedar color) and have used penofin in the past. Decided to try this, primarily because of cost (half the price) and also reviews. Used the cedar color. Penetration seemed better than the penofin. Application was very even and smooth. Cleanup was the same as for any oil based application. The color, however, was considerably darker than the penofin. Penofin remained a bright reddish golden/yellow after applying. The F&G product was more of a tan / ... read more brownish dull color. I really like the penetrating qualities, however. Living in southeast NM, with extreme heat and low humidity, I am more concerned with the protection quality. Next time I will use the clear color.

    The Best Oil Based Stain on the Market
    I've used Ready Seal on 2,000 of my clients' decks, fences, siding, and roofs with no trouble at all. -I warranty it for 2 years on decks, and that's never been a problem. -Ready Seal is easy to apply, easy to clean up, and provides a beautiful, long lasting finish. -I've always had terrific customer service from Ready Seal. I recommend applying with a 7" painters pad. 2 coat the floor and top of the hand rail. As with any finish, surface preparation is key. ----No, I do not work for RS, I'm ... read more just incredibly excited to see it at my local HD!----

    So far, so good....
    Store demo made this to good to be true. To date, no stain I have used am I able to give a thumbs up for longevity. I have a lot of fence and decking to care for, so the ease of application is important. I will gladly update my ratings if the products last as long as they claim; but for now, I like the product and will gladly recommend it.

    ReadySeal a Winner
    Have used about every stain/sealer available. ReadySeal is by far the best I've found, definitely professinoal quality and affordable - roughly the same price as any other high quality product only much better. The only downside was that Pecan was the only color available from Home Depot, the company makes a variety of colors. As it turned out it was the perfect color for my project so not a problem. I would definitely order directly from the company for a few more dollars if I needed another ... read more color. I won't be using any other brand in the future.

    Par excellent!
    My husband is a builder of walkways..they are all around our property..and when it comes time to give them a facelift I want something that looks good but stands up to Mother Nature. something Im not re painting all the time. Behr never lets me down. Quality and a mi-rad of colors. There is always something new to tickle my fancy!

    Best stain I have ever used, A+A+
    I have tried stains in the past just to find that in two years or so that the decks would need to be re-stained. I found this product at my local Home depot store and read the reviews that were highly talked about. So I thought I would give it a try. I am very pleased with the results, I don't have pictures to post but WOW I am very pleased at how it turned out. We live in the Midwest and have had snow and cold weather on it and it looks just like it did in the summer when it was applied. I have ... read more used interior and exterior paints by Behr and I will not use anything else but there products.

    best ever and been using it for over 30 years
    I would not use any other brand - started using it over 30 years ago for a cedar fence that was 8 feet tall - it took 13 gallons to paint the front and back of the fence. Goes on easy and last as long as the can indicated at that time. The new batch has a longer lasting time and I am now in the process of painting that fence again, plus the front 4 foot fence and have already painted my deck. I love this paint and have recommended to all my friends and Consumer Report rates it high also. Again Love it.

    RICHEST LOOKING CEDAR DECK EVER!
    I used this product on my cedar deck in Fall 2014 and am totaling enjoying it now after the snow left. It's raining as I type this and the surface of the deck is doing just what the stain can said! I love this Behr product! The application was easy and the amount of stain I used went further than I thought, saving me money. I have a senior graduation party this year with guests coming and I'm very excited to have them dine on my deck...it makes me look good.

    Deck Recovery
    I have never been more pleased with a product !! It went on so easily and covered so well. We took the advise of our go to guy at Home Depot in North Myrtle Beach, SC and cleaned the deck very well before we started. This is a very important step !! We purchased the recommended amount of stain and went to work. Our deck is beautiful !!! We live 3 miles from the beach and we were told this is the go to product for the intense heat & salt air ......... and I will say it again " we can not be more ... read more pleased." Thank you for your product :-D

    Great Product, really lasts.
    We applied this on the backside (southwesterly exterior wall) of our cedar bat and board sided house back in spring 2009. Our cedar had been painted once so we used a pressure washer to strip the paint and then after it dried for a day we applied one coat of the BEHR #501 with 4" brushes. The next day we went to look at it and it appeared wet, but upon inspection, that is just how it looks. After 4 years, it still looks the same wet look as it did that first day after, with no graying or other ... read more fade as far as I can tell. We have since applied it to our 1405 sq ft home, and it took less than 5 gallons.I highly recommend this product, and all our guests who see it say the same thing- "Is that stain still wet?". Great product, great coverage, be careful not to overlap when you take a break and start back, a second coat makes it noticeably darker. Highly recommend that you pressure wash away any graying of your wood before applying, if you don't, it will be very dark. Fresh wood turns a beautiful reddish-gold color when this cedar naturaltone #501 is applied.

    Good coverage
    This is a great product, however, we don't care for the color. What I thought would be reddish is actually more of a salmon pink.

    Thompson's WaterSeal Waterproofing Stain Solid Sequoia Red
    Got excited when I got the stain to refinish my son's playset. Having seen betters days Thompson's is the perfect stain to rejuvenate the Rainbow playset. Once received I immediately started to mix the contents in side the gallon canister. Some vigorous shaking and I was ready. Dispensed into a paint tray and I was off and refinishing the playset. Application was a piece of cake and the finish completed a new look for the wood components. Word for those that use the stain, make absolutely sure ... read more you have a prepped surface, clean and dust free. Prep is paramount with any application of stain/paint/varnish and that is definitely the case here. Thompson's stain is highly recommended when you want a professional looking finish.
