Cleaned a bench I've had for over thirteen years then applied the Oil-based clear penetrating stain and sealer. I must say I was delighted with the out come. In fact it worked so well until I am doing my gate to my back yard. The clean-up was so easy, just a little soap and water cleaned the brush. I've never used a product with easy use and clean-up.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AZHawg Good Outdoor Protection for Wood
I recently built a serving table for our outside BBQ area out of pallets and common Pine 2x6's. In order to protect that wood from the elements here in SE Arizona (Sun and Monsoon Rains!), I used this product. It's a good thing, too, because the afternoon that I put it out for a BBQ, we had some of our monsoon rains! The water beaded up and was repelled where this product was used. Good proof of its ability to protect against water. Like a champ!
Now, I just have to finish treating the pallets, too, when we get a sunny spell.

Applied this stuff when it was 75 degrees Fahrenheit outside. The afternoons reached 87 to 90 degrees for 3 weeks. The stuff is still tacky only parts of it have dried. It rubs right off (see the attached image). My porch is covered in bugs, dirt, leaves, pet hair and whatever else blows around a backyard.
I've used other products which had a similar problems after application but each time the chemicals have cured. Not so with this stuff.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wolfbane Nice sealer!
I got this clear sealer to seal a variety of small outdoor sheds. It went on very nicely on every surface. It dried smooth and clear. So far, it seems to be fairly rain-resistant. Wood needs a LOT of sealing here in the Rockies because of the rain, wind, snow, and sun at 9400 feet. The proof of this sealer's lasting value will be more apparent in another 6 months, so I'll try to get back here to post at that time.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LeighAnn Very disappointed
We built a new cedar deck May 2014 and stained it with this sealer. Shortly after staining we noticed the areas that would get water on them started turning black. Once it started to rain any area that was exposed to rain turned black. We contacted the company and were told to use bleach and water. This actually did clear it up but this is a large deck and it is not something we should have to do after six months. I emailed pictures to the company and was told that it had to be something else because they had never had this happen. They suggested pollen or something else but we have neighbors next to us that are not having this problem. I am attaching a picture because you have to see it to believe it. Remember this is only a seven month old deck. At this point this is no reflection on Home Depot as we have not contacted them yet. That is our next step.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Steve Superior, high quality product for harsh seasonal climate
I use this product on my boat dock at Lake Tahoe every Spring to restore and protect it from the harsh extreme climate changes, ranging from intense direct summer sun to winter accumulated snow and ice. Follow manufacturer directions using bleach mixture to eliminate any mold or mildew prior to application, and wipe away excess product afterward or the surface will remain tacky for awhile. This product is outstanding.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by kclonn Does not last at all.
I installed this per directions on a new cedar deck. Within a few months, the deck started turning black. Now I need to strip all of it off the deck (700 sq ft) to put something decent on it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by joefixit Totally UN-impressed
I purchased Preserva wood for a customers project based on positive reviews from Pacific Northwest customers. The product went on well and looked great. FOR About a Month.
After 9 months it looks like the wood was never treated. The color is fading and the surface is roughing up just like untreated wood. The product did not protect it did not preserve. It was a poor choice.
I now have to go back to my customer and re-treat their items on my time and my dime.
Even the areas that were not in direct sunlight look as if they were never treated.
