Customer Questions & Answers

can i put this flood product on after using thompson wood sealer?

Asked by: Anonymous
Yes you can. To whatever extent the Thompson's isn't sealing any longer, that area will absorb the Flood sealer. You simply won't need as much of the Flood sealer and might need to wipe off any excess after letting it sit for a day to soak in, or might prefer to then re-spread the remaining sealer for further absorption on any areas that will take more, then wait another day for wipe-off and final drying. In other words don't rush it, the longer it sits the more will be absorbed and the better protection it will provide.

How many years did it last

For those that have used it...How many years did it actually last. Thanks
Asked by: Gionni
so far its been 3 years and the rails, posts and spindles have held up but the high traffic areas last about a year and a half, but its was really easy to apply only problem we had was that we had to order it online and couldn't find it at our local store when we decided to reapply it to our deck floor, I guess they consider it a seasonal item so I went ahead and bought 2 gals for future use

Flood One Coat vs Flood CWF-UV?

What are the differences between the Flood One Coat (Models FLD300-006-1 and FLD300-002-1) and the Flood CWF-UV (Models FLD-420-01 and FLD-422-01)?
Asked by: GoldenBear
Hello there is no difference. The CWF-UV is the One coat Water Proofing. The One coat water proofing was a specific label for Home Depot. Thank You.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy to use Initially I thought Natural color was clear, the result is a red/orange color. Looks good. i was able to refurb an old roof to look new. Coverage was less than stated as the roof was in bad repair. Caution note: due to the pitch of a cedar roof, applied product will make the roof slippery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Finished Deck Looks Great!! I finally got around to applying this product to my deck. Now that it's finished, it looks great!!! Hosted a poker game and my buddies said "I see you got a new deck". I responded, "Yes, about 17 years ago". However, I yearn for the days of high VOC stains. This product consists of linseed oil in a water-based emulsion...among other ingredients. If you have previously sealed your deck, this stain/sealer just laughs at you as you attempt to apply a water-based finish to a deck already possessing a certain level of water repellency. Yes. I did power wash it first after giving it a treatment of "Wet and Forget" as well. Ultimately, it does spread and get absorbed, as it still has certain level of VOC (Stoddard solvent). Gone are the stains with high VOCs where you could merely touch the brush to the wood and "wham" done! The good news is that you use far less stain. I recall buying a 5 gallon drum of stain/sealer and having very little left over. I was able to do my entire deck, including one story stairs, with just two gallons. Thanks probably to the EPA, water based stains are now the norm for just about all stain products. As I said earlier, the end results are just as good as before. The deck has a deep rich oil finish thanks to the linseed oil and iron oxide pigment. It also lets the natural grain of the wood show through too. The sale price makes buying this a "no brainer". I just bought a quart of solid stain for another project, made by another brand-name company, and paid the same price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Stain and water protection Bought this based on the reviews. I've used others in the past for a lot more money. This stain went on great with a spray gun, then I rolled the deck boards themselves. First rain their was water beading up all over the deck boards. The stain gave the deck a "wet-shinny" look. Will be using Flood in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent transparent stain for a sea exposed dock. Application was easy on a very "tired out" dock. Just a bit of sanding. Some years of "begnign neglect" in a salt, snow, wind, environment did its damage. It now looks terrific, with the original grain showing it natural attractiveness. And, that was with but one-coat. I'm sorry to hear that the product is being phased out - but can hope for a "change of heart". We'll see how long it lasts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product When we first bought this product we were a little skeptical but when we applied it we were pleased. HOWEVER...the product says it is a natural finish and it is more of a cedar tone, it looked nice but not what we were originally wanting. The product description is lacking, I found more information with a google search than anywhere else. ALSO, this is made exclusive for Home Depot so you will not find it anywhere else plus we couldn't even find the product on Flood's website. And if your Home Depot stops carrying it in the store like my local stores did then you just can't run out and grab one last can, you are forced to wait to finish your project for maybe 2 weeks or buy plenty upfront. The product covered really well just got burned by Home Depot because they stopped carrying it in the store and only found out when I went back for my last can and had to finish my project after my time I had scheduled.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product, BUT......... I had bought a 5 gal can of this stain at my local Home Depot, but my project got put on hold for a few months. After starting it, I realized I needed one more can. I returned to the HD, only to be informed by the clerk they had stopped carrying it. I came home to look for where I COULD buy it, and found it on HD site as online only. I bought it, had it shipped to store, only to discover that the color mix chart for Flood had been purged from their system. Luckily they could mix it manually with the info from the top of my old can.... If you are going to CARRY something, even just online, at least continue to SUPPORT it at your retail stores.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from different results than expected but so far like I was set on using the thompsons wood with light tint but found that it came out more toward the red orange range on my 15 year old deck. Was in a quandary, as we love the natural look of our deck that has survived 10 years with clear or lightly tinted products over the years. Olympic clear was our stain of choice but it is no longer made in the same formula and lasts less than one year in its current form. One of the gals explained that the flood had great feedback and was a water based product with a wider temperature bad for use - staining in November this becomes an issue with all the other products. The stain went down much thicker than I expected, it took a lot more elbow grease than anything I had used in the past. It started to penetrate the wood very quickly and almost seemed to bypass small areas where I was not able to get all of the old stain up. My deck is darker than the last time I stained it, the stain is now completely dry and the wood is about 1/2 of the tone between the untreated and what it was just after application. The water repelling abilty is not as it was but better than it had been.. The wood does not have a shine like other products but appears to be shedding the water. The material goes much further than anything I have used. I used 6 gallons of the Olympic to do the entire deck, I appear to only have used 4 of the flood. I would have preferred to do two coats but the time available between is much less than I could manage the area I was working on to go back. I am mixed over the -need- first time out with the product, only time will tell the true need under the elements
