We have used this product for years on our cedar fence, our whole log cabin, and our deck too. We applied it to the cabin with a sprayer and the fence with a sprayer and another time I used a rllar on the fence. The deck we have always used a rollar, we found that we only did the deck when it really needed it and then it absorbed better and was only tacky about a week. The product is durable and lasts a long time. We live in Montana and winter is hard on wood, but this stuff really lasts. We did our fence shown here three years ago and will do it again this year, the flood lat year was hard on the fence.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by whholder Was a great product on bare wood
We applied this to a freshly sanded redwood deck. The resulting finish was the best we have had on this deck over a 25 year period. Strong, durable and deep. Previous products were easily scratched by the deck furniture. The furniture now slides across the finished wood almost like tile. we have NOT applied to already coated wood.
We also used this product on a new cedar fence. Looks great. Getting ready to do a second coat for winter. Tested on a full section, and worked well. Not tacky.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Doug If it's sticky it's your fault.
Apply a small amount and rub out with a rag. Don't use a roller. Don't over apply. This is an oil treatment not paint. Read the label. It requires very little and gives a good result if you follow its requirements. My deck always looks great. Dried in 12 hours and not sticky if you don't let it puddle.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ryan1 Great Fence Sealer
I have used this product three times now. I put a thick coat on my redwood fences every two years. I spray a 6 foot section at a time using a tank sprayer, then I back brush everything to even it all out. I clean up any overspray with a terry cloth soaked in mineral spirits. Definitely a great fence sealer as it takes time to dry. Wouldn't recommended for decks or other wood surfaces you'll be walking on.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PLYS Excellent Product...Best sealer ever used
It's obvious that those who say it doesn't soak in either rolled it on or padded it on...which product specifically said NOT to do....i had the simular experience loading it on...when i followed directions and dried off excess after it dried and soaked in perfectly....don't listen to store personal who tell you to use a roller or pad....uses a sponge or best method forever rags

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Leonard Great product, lousy container!
5 star product, 0 star 5 gal container. The 40¢ they saved at Home Depots request cost me about $10 worth of spilled product, a screw on lid would have solved the problem. Stick with the small containers.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by alangski Do Not Use !!!
I am a contractor with 25 plus years experience.
I applied on a seasoned deck after pressure washing.
I applied with a 3/8 mohair roller skin running the excess off on a roller grid to make sure not to apply to much. I use a roller on seasoned decks instead of a pad because a pad picks up splinters and quickly becomes a mess, I wound up with a tacky deck just like the others here did.
The preserva wood rep is sticking with the you used a roller when it says on the can not to use a roller. That is all they got. I could have rolled strawberry jelly mixed with honey on the deck and it wouldn't still be tacky, yet after 4 weeks of 90-100 degree weather (august) the deck is still tacky.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by EastsideBiker Never dries...gets sticky in the sun
Absolutely horrible product, avoid at all costs unless you want to spend a weekend sanding down your deck to get this product back off of it. Never dries, doesn't penetrate wood in the least -- you end up wiping off 4/5 of your investment with a towel after application. Worst of all, when the sun comes out, the wood actually seems to exude this stuff and the surface gets so tacky your shoes stick to it. Without question the WORST wood-treatment product I have EVER encountered.
