Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Carolyn The color is beautiful and the grain in the redwood shows through, which is just what I wanted. We are heading into winter in Colorado, so I hope it will preserve my wood in our inclement weather.
I now have in my back yard a 5-gal pail full of water and rags used by my painter. He told me they need to soak for a week before they can be safely thrown away. But what should I do with the water in the pail? It's surely toxic.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AceKool Preservawood, Penefin Duckback, I use them all.
I have little problems with any of the products I mention in my title. I use all of them and can say I like the smell of Penefin best, other then that, it comes down to colors. Preservawood is the best value. They apply the same, they have equal longevity in similar conditions.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by John good coverage
This stain goes on easy has a nice color also. The drying time seems normal compared to other stains I've used in the past. It is a bit thin but for the most part it covered good a few spots didn't cover as good as others . not sure if maybe it was the wood itself. They give great directions on how to apply it and clean up afterwards It didn't take to long to do the job with this stain. I also used it on two different types of wood and that could of had some effect on how it covered.

Absolutely amazing product , especially if you want to make old, old wood look great again without a lot of steps and work! I use it every year on a deck. Sorry Home Depot doesn't stock in the stores anymore.

I painted the wood border in my backyard with one coat. It came out great. This freshened up the appearance in the backyard.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MattG Great product
I've tried many finishes on my redwood deck, and this has proven to be one of the best. It's not the longest lasting, yet the longer lasting products I tried were coatings that eventually started peeling and were a pain to sand off. I like that this one soaks into the wood and isn't some separate layer that can peel. I had no trouble with application; some reviews I had read talked about this product being very sticky - I'm pretty sure that was a result of not wiping off the excess product as described in the instructions. The color ended up being lighter than I expected but I suspect that'll get darker each year as I recoat it.
The company also has great customer service - I emailed them with a question about how to determine when it's time to reapply a new coat, and they responded very quickly with an informative answer, not just some canned response.
