I USED F&P PRESERVATIVE REDWOOD FOR THE ACCENT TRIM ON OUR 2,600 SQ FEET DECK AND PICKET RAIL THAT HAS BEEN WEATHERED AND MISTREATED FOR 10 YEARS. IT HAS DONE A WONDERFUL JOB IN MAKING OUR PORCH LOOK ALIVE AGAIN. IT HAS A GREAT REDISH BROWN COLOR AND WITH THE 2 COATS THAT IS RECOMMENDED APPLYING, IT GIVES A NICE DARK DENSE LOOK TO THE TREATED PINE.
NOTHING AS OF NOW CAN RESTORE OLD WOOD BACK TO ITS YOUTH, SO UNTIL THAT MAGIC SPRAY IS AVAILABLE I WILL KEEP USING F&P PRESERVATIVE WOOD STAIN PRODUCTS.
CAN'T COMMENT AT THIS TIME ON THE LONGEVITY OF THIS PRODUCT. ONLY BEEN ON A MONTH.

The Stain goes on easy and covers very nicely leaving a beautiful finished surface.

I knew this product was good because it was what a professional used several years ago. This time I did it myself and was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to apply. I used a deck pad to mop it on and a brush for the tight places. The stain just absorbed right into the wood. No more dry looking wood or splinters. The color is rich and natural looking because the real wood grain shows through. My deck is surrounded by trees that shed pine needles and cherry blossoms, yet none of that debris stuck to the deck while the stain was still drying. The flower peddles and needles just blew off.

The Wolman F&P product went on my redwood deck easily and was obviously penetrating into the wood. I got about 150 sq. ft per gallon coverage, probably because my deck is nearly 15 years old and is heavily weathered. I would have preferred to have more color in the finish. The F&P has some kind of reddish brown dye in it, but not enough to make much of a color difference. The main color change is that the wood is darker, but it doesn't look like redwood. The appearance is still better than the Behr deck stain that I used previously. It was basically just a dilute paint that sat on top of the wood and began to peel after two years. Since I just applied the Wolman F&P, I can't say how long it will last.

Purchased to use on my privacy fence. I applied using paint sprayer, went on smooth and looks great! I extended my existing fence that I had previously applied behr stain so applied to both new fence and older fence. Color is beautiful. I thought for the price it may not penetrate so well but to my surprise it did. I painted and as I was painting it started pouring down raining and it still penetrated the fence nicely. Time will tell if it last. I will be happy if it last a couple of years for the price.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by hsww Worked great
I've been using Wolman deck stain products for years. In the past its always been the latex stain & sealer but its been getting harder and harder to find. I never found it at Home Depot but my local hardware store used to carry it. This year they no longer carried the redwood color I've been using and none of the other local retailers did either. So I moved to the Wolman oil based stain and I must say it worked great. It covered very well although it dries much darker than the latex stain. And one thing I noticed is that in the past I never needed a full gallon for my 19'x15' deck using latex but I had just enough with no leftovers using oil. In fact I ran out and had to revert to the 1/4 gallon of latex I had left over to do the steps. They are slightly different colors with the latex drying a bit lighter but only I would notice.

Recently had fence delivered and installed by Home Depot. I purchased 1 gal of transparent exterior wood stain on outdoor patio lounger just to try the product. I was very impressed with the ease of painting and quality produced. The color perfectly compliments my grey vinyl house siding. I plan to purchase a paint sprayer and enough stain for the entire fenced yard. Maybe a deck will be next. Thank you Home Depot.

This f&p is amazing. Instead of using it on a deck I used it on a bird house that me and my son made. It turned out great me my son and wife all love it. I would recommend it to everyone.
