Rated 5 out of 5Â by ryzmeme 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.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by dcross 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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Dana Excellent products!
After tons of research of reviews and youtube (which I now find out can be set up by product manufacturers), we discussed the best product with several deck builders; they all said tried and true Flood products have been the best....especially for a well worn deck. We cleaned the deck with the power washer and started with the Flood CWF cedar toner stain. Our deck was 7 yrs old, very dry and littered with cracks. The stain brought moisture back to the wood and filled in the cracks nicely. The color was beautiful. We did do 2 coats of the stain. We finished with the Flood CWF cedar toner waterproofing. It was fabulous! It was like adding a shellac to the wood. It dries fast. It blends the colors over areas with different wear. It is easy to apply. Many color choices. Highly recommend! Final note....when doing research, I was surprised at how many class action lawsuits there were against other manufacturers.

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.
