Rated 2 out of 5 by Sticker mess My bro-in-law picked this stuff up for me! recommended by Home Depot and we followed instructions and put only one coat on. It is so sticky in on most of my deck after 2 weeks and some of the days have been close to 80 degrees and most of my deck gets sun and it's still sticky. I called the co that makes this so now I have to buy more product to strip the upper layer of stain off. I am really frustrated!! June 20, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by 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. June 3, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by 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. September 25, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Has protected my deck for 16 years I apply Pacific Redwood transparent stain about every two or three years. It has done a great job of protecting my mostly non-covered, west facing 16 year old heart redwood deck. One problem I have experienced is sticky and shiny results where a deck mat or roof does shade the stained wood. That covered wood is not absorbing additional stain. Go lightly or not at all in those areas, use the recommended pad for application with a brush for between the boards. Wipe up excess stain with paint thinner on a rag shortly after applying stain to an area. May 5, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Still Tacky I agree with other reviews. This product is still tacky after over a month. July 3, 2013
