Rated 5 out of 5Â by Kayo Great Value for a general purpose REDWOOD stain
I had to cover a weathered shed that had a previous stain coating. As I looked at the reviews on this, I decided to give it a try. When you open the container, the stain looks decided redder than a redwood would be, and it is red when applied, but it dries to nice brownish red redwood tint. See my enclosed photo where the wood on the left is dried finish, the wood in the middle is as applied, and the unstained wood is on the right.
Coverage was as I expected. My wood soaked in the stain, and some extra coats were needed. It applies like oil, but cleared up the brushes like latex. Good stuff.

I have an old stockade fence that sorely needed a coat of paint. I didn't have a lot of money in my budget and found this stain to work best for my needs. It's really thin and you need to make sure you stir it well. Better yet have the store throw it in their mixer before bringing it home. I used a brush to apply it but can see where it would work well with a sprayer as It goes on very easy. It is a barn red color as you can see from my before and after pictures. I highly recommend this product

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Dave makes old wood look new
This is the best stain I have ever used! Covers great and the price is unbeatable! I have a Chinese style garden with a tremendous amount of decking, the pressure treated lumber was showing it's age and this stain a very solid color red that compliments my garden perfectly has made the wood look new. Easy to apply,the best way is by brush to fill all nooks and crannies. Even if it only holds up for a couple of years at this price I do not mind redoing it.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by wleep Redwood Oil-Latex Stain
If you are looking for a stain that will show wood grain, this is not what you want. It is more of a paint than a stain.
That said, if you don't care about seeing the wood-grain, this is a good product for the cost.
When dry (within 30 minutes to 1 hour), it's a dull barn-red color. There are several photos so I won't upload any more.
It does NOT penetrate the wood as a stain does, but covers like a paint. A single coat scratches very easily, but another reviewer seems pleased with wear after several coats.
For painting a fence, it will work great, but am uncertain as to how well it would work on a deck. Description states not to be used on a deck, but some reviewers have done so and seem happy with results.
Overall, good quality and coverage for the price,

Rated 4 out of 5Â by j944 Great price
I have a 19x20 deck and it was that time again to stain. Including the rails and table it takes about four gallons and I decided to try four cans of this at almost the same cost of one gallon of another stain. The color after being first applied was a bit brighter than expected but did lighten after id dried. Someone mentioned a barn red. I think that best describes it. As to drying time, it seems as I finished one section the first part of it was dry (30-45 min). The next day when moving furniture back on I noticed it did scratch pretty easily which did expose the wood. I would assume the reason it doesnt penetrate as well would be because of the latex which i think its as thick as it is compared to other stains. It did go on smoothly and dried evenly. Overall a great buy
