Answer: 
Yes. The graying is most times wear and dirt. If properly cleaned you will find the wood will not be gray. We power washed our 7 yr old gray deck and it was back to the original wood color. The Flood CWF stain and waterproofing come in clear or with options for many different colors. We chose the cedar toner and love it!

Answer: 
We live in the Pacific Northwest and have used Flood Translucent Stain for years. Nothing is 100%, but this is good stuff. We do reapply about every 2 years and it still looks great. You could reapply every year if needed. Have never used Deks Olje, so can't speak to that...hope this helps!

Answer: 
I can't say I've used deks olje, however even if you stop u.v. Rays completely, you can't stop the wood from oxidizing. You can slow down both but don't kill yourself trying.

Answer: 
Hello Robert!
Flood uses iron oxides in this oil-based one-coat product to create UV resistance ... preventing damage from the sun.
Once cured, the surface is also considered waterproof.

Answer: 
If your sprayer will handle it, of course you can spray it. But I like to work the product into the wood with a brush.

Answer: 
It does have a similar consistency as paint, so I would think a good sprayer would work. We chose to use a small roller with an extended handle,and a large paint brush for the floor of the deck, and a small paint brush for the spindles only to eliminate runs and waste. We did 2 coats of the stain for a more consistent cover.

I guess it could be sprayed on but it is a little thick, so I chose to roll it on with a roller and brush it on in certain areas. Great product!

FLOOD Wood Care product: I want a low-odor product.

Asked by

July 16, 2013
Our last deck stain smelled terrible for months, like tar. It made our deck a very unpleasant place for a whole season. How does the Flood One-coat Waterproofing Finish measure up in that respect?
Thanks!

Answer: 
I couldn't smell anything ~3-4 days after the application, even though we used it over a pretty large area. Overall, it dries very quickly.
I did find it quite stinky during the application though (a synthetic smell similar to nail polish) .

All one coat products are going to smell for a period of time. Try adding a couple of teaspoons of vanilla extract per one gallon of material before you apply it.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love Flood! Flood is the best product I have ever used. I have used others but this is by far the best. The color is a beautiful rich cedar shade, it goes on very smooth and covered my old deck great, in fact it made it look like new again. Clean up was a breeze also. I just love the look of my deck so much that I can't stop looking at it. I bought 10 gallons and have used almost all of them. I have a lot of decking around my pool, I also have a back and side deck and lots of railings. We also have a gazebo with railings going around it that is what I am going to use Flood on next. The neighbors have made comments on how good our deck looks. And I agree it looks fantastic! If anyone is thinking of weather proofing there deck my advice is get Flood, you won't be sorry. July 23, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Satisfied I have a 250 FT wooden fence that I have recently stained with Flood One Coat Cedar. The coverage rate was not as advertised, but I never really go by that anyways. The wood seemed to soak up the stain and it took a good bit to cover the fence (30-32 gallons). A painter had estimated 22, so it wasn't too far off. I used a roller for one side, but it seemed slow because the boards were not perfectly flat and a lot of areas were not getting covered, which required rolling in a different direction, etc. I began using a deck stain pad and have had good luck with it. The pad is tough and holds up well to the friction against a wooden fence. I back brush to ensure the stain is worked in well. The spaces in between the boards is difficult to cover with a brush. This method takes a lot of time when working alone, so be prepared. The stain looks rich orange red when newly applied, but within a day or two of drying turns more rust colored. It looks good and we have received compliments from the neighbors. Time will tell as to the effectiveness. A neighbor behind us used Flood a year or two ago and his has faded over time and looks more tan-orange, but they were satisfied with it as well. Cleanup was easy. Most everything washes clean with water. Dried stain on brushes and buckets might need a brush to scrub off, but doesn't require a lot of elbow grease. September 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to apply. Finish looks great. Was pleasantly surprised after putting the Flood cedar stain onto my deck. Prepped the deck using Behr deck cleaner. Scrubbed it thoroughly and allowed to dry. Put first coat of Flood deck stain onto the boards and it soaked in immediately. I applied a second coat before the first completely dried. This worked out very nice. Used on rails, steps and decking. Easy to put on and looks very nice. September 26, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product, easy to use, covered well. I used the product on a wooden swing set, bench and garden bench; all came out looking great. Very easy to use and cleanup was a snap...love that you could just use soap & water. October 22, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful and effective We've used this product for the past 3 years. It looks amazing (makes ordinary wood look rich and exotic) and so far seems to be protecting the wood on our deck very well. April 30, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good product, but too expensive Good product overall, I recommend. Used it on my deck and happy with the results so far (but it's been just 1 month). Pros: 1) easy to put on with brush or roller, rather liquid 2) got absorbed by the wood very quickly - the stain seems to get "into" the wood as opposed to forming a film as some Behr stains I used in the past. 3) Looks great Cons: 1) I had to use 2 coats for even coverage. "One coat" is just advertising - don't believe that 2) Cedar color looks too orange 3) Expensive, especially if you're doing a large project. This is a good product overall, but Flood CWF-UV looks like a great product as well at half the price. I'll go with that next time. August 3, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Translucent a tricky word When I purchased this product I had plans to spray it on, but after getting it and it did not recommed it and that it actually does add color to the cedar versus what I thought to be close to a clear liquid had to roll it on instead. Does look nice but now I need more. 1. permitting light to pass through but diffusing it so that persons, objects, etc., on the opposite side are not clearly visible: Frosted window glass is translucent but not transparent. 2. easily understandable; lucid: a translucent explication. 3. clear; transparent: translucent seawater. July 15, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bad color Ok after using the transparent Cedar stain by Flood I was excited about the Cedar Solid, Well Well, MISTAKE People! It isn't even close to the sample match on outside of can at all! If you your looking for a pumpkin color or cantaloupe color go for it, I left my son with 3 gallons and directed him to do back deck while we went out of town, Wow sad color and bad product by the marketing add dept. from FLOOD! I called and sent pics to 4 different people and finally received a supervisor that said she would refund money in 10 days well that was on July 16,2014 now its Sept 4th with never a refund! I sent several emails about the refund, nothing but blame on accounting dept. My advise don't use any kind of paint or stain without trying it on a paint stick and looking for yourself. The paint is still at Wal-Mart as of today! September 4, 2014
