I bought this stain thinking it was a paint. Oops.
Turned out ok and repelled rain after a few days just as advertised. Color me happy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FloridaBBQMan Great product
I was surprised how far one gallon of the product would go. My deck is fairly small, about 200 square feet. Took much less than a gallon to put on a heavy coat. Highly recommend.

My only caveat is that it takes a loooooonnnnng time to dry. 72 hours before treading upon. My wife just about got stuck to the deck because she didn't believe me. Applies easily with a roller

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lew Decks look great
My 2 decks are each 10'x12' and are 5 years old. They had only ever been treated with Thompson's clear wood protector, which was ultra-easy to apply but which didn't seem to last very long. The steps, in particular, tended to quickly lose water repellency and would absorb water readily after just a couple of months.
I prepped the wood by spraying it with OxyClean powder in water and scrubbing with a stiff bristle brush. This was a very cheap alternative to deck scrub and it took the gray mold coating right off. After thorough drying over 2 days, I applied the stain using a 1-gallon pump sprayer followed by spreading with a pad. The first coat was walkable within an hour, and I applied the second thin coat at the 2-hour mark. That coat also dried relatively quickly and I was able to walk on it not too long afterward, although I minimized foot travel for the recommended 72 hours.
The decks have a rich look with some visible grain and the coating feels like it has a bit of depth (compared to the lack of any depth after using Thompson's). It took a bit more than a gallon to put 2 thin coats on each of the 120-square-foot decks plus about 25 square feet of steps. I was careful to follow instructions regarding weather (acceptable temperature range and no rain for 24 hours). The cost was around twice what Thompson's costs but I'm hoping the protection lasts a lot longer.

Bought this product to waterproof my dock. We followed directions and used the recommended cleaning product in advance and the dirt and dog prints do not rinse or scrub off.

This product was used on a weathered split rail fence and the coverage was excellent.
