Customer Questions & Answers

How many coats do you recommend?

Asked by: Lorin
I applied 2 coats within 45 minutes of each other as directed by the manufacture. This application typically lasts 2-3 years depending on weather and sun exposure.

How often does this need to be applied to the deck? Every year or every 5 years?

Asked by: rod
I would generally say 2-3 years. On horizontal surfaces likely every 2 max. On vertical, I've been able to get by with 3 years on pickets, etc. It all depends on the sun and weather exposure, but I would say this is pretty typical for most stains that are not solid colors.

Customer Reviews

5 gal. Mahogany Exterior Wood Stain and Sealer is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product and finish Easy to apply, I used the Mahogany color on an old redwood deck and I'm very happy with the finish. .About half the deck boards were replaced and there was a sharp contrast between the old weathered boards and the new decking. I let the new boards weather for a couple weeks, then used a heavy nap roller and applied two heavy coats to the old, one to the new. Even color overall, smooth under foot, water rolls right off, it's a great product. I had to work a bit to even out the overlap areas, next time I'll use an airless sprayer to get the finish farther down on the edges between the boards. It took about a week to fully cure (in the rain) and looks better every week since.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Newly applied. Durability unknown but drips like no other stain I've ever used. I chose Ready Seal primarily due to it being available from Home Depot, it's reviews, and the fact that it could be applied in direct sunlight. The manufacturer says to apply two light coats. Maybe it's just me but I don't know what a "light coat" of stain is. The wood is either 'wet' with stain or it's not. Well, my deck is two levels (walk-out basement) and I started with the top level. Hours after finishing that top level I was still in a 'drip control' mode. I've never seen stain that is so drip prone. What a hassle. But I really like the rich, deep color of the mahogany color. For fences and single level decks with nothing to worry about underneath them, no problemo. But just be prepared to manage the drips if you have an elevated deck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Goof Proof Finish After replacing all of the flooring on my deck last summer, I let it season a year and then stained it. While the coloration of the new wood was significantly darker than the old wood, it looked like it was intentional two toning. The wife is happy. If I had one complaint, it was that I ran out of the first 5 gallons and had to place a second internet order, since H Depot does not keep this in stock in Louisville, KY. and wait a week to finish the project. H Depot should stock this brand and not that Olympic stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Stain! Perfect for Decks. Easy to Apply, Excellent Coverage I've used Ready Seal several times and it works very well. It goes on very easy and lasts 2-3 years in full-sun in the north east. The first time you apply definitely purchase extra as the wood generally will soak it up. Subsequent applications typically dont require as much, but apply 2 coats withing 45 minutes of each other.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ready Seal Excellent product very easy And forgiving to use. No runs etc. I did a lot of research before purchase, even called manufacturer and spoke to a very helpful engineer who emailed me more info. Staining is work you want to last and look good so use a superior product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from VERY VERY Nice color, you cannot go wrong with mahogany. It was very easy to apply and it's reall... VERY VERY Nice color, you cannot go wrong with mahogany. It was very easy to apply and it's really goof proof, you cannot mess it up. Just a heads up, it took about 2 to 3 weeks to really dry and reach it's true color which is beautiful, excellent product!
