I had a 600 square foot treated treated deck added to our home in central Alabama. We like the natural wood grain appearance and would like the best recommendation on how to treat our deck. It was built in October 2015. Would you recommend a clear sealer or stain? Best method of application?

Answer: 
I too was in your situation a few years ago. I like the natural wood look, but if I understand correctly, clear finishes offer very little UV protection. I went with Ready Seal (Golden Pine). This changed the natural color very little and offers good protection from all the elements. Application is effortless and mistake free. Mine has been on for three years and still looks great. Just my 2 cents.

I used the Natural Ready Seal on my replacement decks 2 yrs ago. This product is easy to apply (I used a stain brush but you can also use a roller or sprayer) The natural shade allows the texture and wood grain to show through while lightly staining and sealing all in one. This would be the perfect stain/sealer if it had better UV protection. A bold summer sun requires reapplication of the horizontal boards every year so far. The vertical boards held up fine. Always a trade off it seems. Beautiful appearance, easy application and clean up, poor UV protection. Still better than all of the other products I've tried. I chose this because it requires very little prep work to reapply. (no sanding, scraping, etc.)
Good luck

I have yet to find the "perfect" product. Tried a lot of products over the years with unsatisfactory results. Replaced my two decks 2 years ago and used Ready Seal stain and sealer in one. The Natural allows the wood grain and texture to show through. Home Depot sells this on line. When finished the deck looked beautiful and the vertical slats still look good. The horizontal boards appear to need a coat every year. The sun is bold on my deck and apparently the UV protection is not the greatest. But for ease of application, clean up and end results, this product is the best I've found so far. Always a trade off it seems. I used a stain brush on mine. Check out this product on line as they have several tints in addition to the Natural. Good luck Read Less

Answer: 
It depends on what type of stain you used and how you prep the wood. I used it on my deck that had previously been stained with a water based stain. I had to use a deck stripper because water based stains leave a coating (think of them as latex paint without a pigment). If you used a good 100% oil bases stain you probably could apply it without stripping.

Answer: 
Yes, my deck was previously stained. However, I did pressure was my deck. I did not use a bleach solution like Ready Seal recommends ( 1 part bleach, 3 parts water). Perhaps it would have brightened up my old treated wood a bit more if I did; but I am completely happy with my results.

Answer: 
This product penetrates the wood so complete removal of old stain is imperative. Good luck with that. After 20 years of staining an old deck (with less than satisfactory results) I finally replaced it and used this stain and sealer on the new wood. While the appearance is beautiful, the horizontal boards do not hold up well over winter. (Wisc) I'm still searching for the best product.

Answer: 
I don't think it is. There is a warning on the label about ingesting. This oil base dives deep into the wood but as such, never really dries like a water based stain or paint. Which are of course inferior to oil based products for decks. Would need to shellac over which defeats the purpose of using this product in subsequent years. (have to remove the shellac)

Yes. Go to Ready Seal.com and you can learn all about the product before purchasing. They have videos, etc and good pictures of the various colors to choose from. You may like a darker color than natural cedar. Their website states the darker colors have greater UV protection and their product is safe for the environment.

If you still have a question, their contact phone number is on their web site. I had called them and they recommended ordering the product from Home Depot because it was cheaper! I originally purchased 5 gallons and I think it was $20.00 cheaper and had no shipping charge from Home Depot. Sounds like you will definitely need 5 gallons for your project. Hope this helps.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 46 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ready Seal Stain is Goof Proof This is a great product!. I purchased Ready Seal Natural Cedar for my entire stockade fence, which is approximately 1/4 of an acre on my property I have used other stains on my old stockade fence, which I replaced last year and by far Ready Seal is the best on the market! It's easy to use and an amateur like myself can be a pro at using this product. The color is beautiful and allows the natural wood tones and grains and to come through the stain. I used a brush to seal my fence even though I had many individuals telling me to use a sprayer, but on my first coat of stain I wanted to make sure I got each picket coated well and didn't miss any portion of the fence. I think using a brush, even though it's time consuming allows more coverage and allows each gallon to go further then spraying - just my opinion. Ready Seal is a little more expensive then other brands, but the product is definitely well worth the cost! Excellent product and Highly Recommend it!!!!! June 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worked great on old bench wood Had a weathered bench, sanded, cleaned & applied. Looks much better! May 24, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by So far, so good.... I used this product on some 15 year-old, outdoor redwood screen frames. I sanded the old finish off of the frames, wiped them down, and applied the first coat with a brush. It penetrates well. The product is described as being "goof-proof", and it pretty much is. As long as you apply it somewhat evenly, there will be no brush strokes to contend with, etc. The next day, I applied the recommended second coat. Now, I'll wait 72 hours to thoroughly let it dry before finishing the screen repairs. The test of time will be the real proof of quality, though. July 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product Goes on good and covers well. Just what they described. Will buy again. July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very good stain The stain was very easy to use very happy with it it is a lot better than some stains out there July 6, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Best I've found This is the best stain/sealer I've found, but it's not perfect. UV protection is weak but that is the only negative. Easy to apply and looks great. To reapply you just need to use a mild bleach solution to clean your wood, wait three days to dry thoroughly and spray,roll or brush on. No scraping or sanding required. If it held up better to the sun it would be phenomenal. June 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by very good product I applied it on cedar using a paintbrush without any mess. The color came out a tiny little bit more towards the red side of the color chart that they provide but thats actually what i was hoping for. It could have something to do with the lumber i used though. The only thing i did notice is that it took until the next day for the wood to really soak it all up, but cedar is an oily type of wood so its no surprise. Very happy with the results and will buy more of this stuff for future projects. June 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So far, so good Applied in early sping, went on easy, looks great (4th of July). I guess the true test will be how long will it last? Time will tell. July 5, 2016
