Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by best of the best Have used this product in the past.. Very good results. Follow the directions and you can't go wrong. Older decks will need more prepping. Power washing or even mixing a solution of 1 part bleach to 3 parts water may be necessary to remove any graying before sealing. April 23, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product, Easy to Use. Great and made the fence look like it was new. amazed February 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product- Looks terrific! Product made my fence look brand new! Great coverage. December 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Outstanding Product I read about this product in a trade magazine. I went to the company web site to research more and order it. I subsequently found out that it could be ordered through Home Depot. It turned out to be cheaper to purchase through Home Depot than from the company (shipping charges were much less). Delivery was quicker than expected (around 4 days). The product was as good as I hoped it would be. Application was extremely easy using a pump. My 700 sf deck took about 2 hours. I couldn't be more pleased. It has been down for about a couple of weeks now. I am eager to see how it sustains over 1, 2 and 3 years. Even if I don't get the 4-5 years as advertised, the price and ease of application still make the product an outstanding value! April 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ready Seal Brushed on easily without overlapping and looked good on treated wood. Really enhanced the woods look. LIked the fact it did not pick up any dirt, sticks or any other foreign material on the brush. Made application even easier than other sealers or paints that I have used on decks or steps. Wood was a little more weathered than recommended but the finished look was very good. September 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The best A professional painter recommended Ready Seal, I had never heard of it. It is, without a doubt, the absolute best deck stain on the market! Even after the recommendation I was hesitant, definitely not the cheapest, but the end result well worth every penny. May 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Product After getting our new fence in I knew I wanted to seal and stain the fence to prevent warping of the wood and the green pressurized wood look of the fence. I did a lot of researching and all signs pointed toward Realy Seal as an excellent product, both for application, final looks, and durability. We used a cheap 1 gal sprayer we had for the application and I will admit it was very straightforward and the results have exceeded expectations. I would highly recommend to anyone. One tip from my experience, do spend the time to cover up ANYTHING that might get some over spray, and if you do get ready seal on anything other than the wood you want to spray, wipe it up immediately. I got it on some cement, fiber siding, and plastic materials I hadn't intended to and the stuff I didn't attend to within a minute or less was serious work trying to get it off (and some of it never came out)! But I can't complain and am exceeding happy overall! April 26, 2014
