Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not quite sure yet We researched stains a lot! We found this stain to be highly reviewed by tradespeople and laypeople alike. We originally had an opaque stain on our deck. We stripped it off, sanded, power washed and brightened. We had a professional apply 2 coats of stain. He did spray it without using a brush, perhaps that would have made a huge difference. The deck looks very splotchy, particularly in sunlight. It reflects light weird. Some sections of deck don't even look stained from some angles until you get right on top of it. Knots seem lighter not darker as expected. I am hoping come spring that it evens out. Whatever the reflection issue is I hope it resolves. It seems to look great on the new wood repairs we made. It is the older wood that seems to have more issues. December 9, 2014
