Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Happy with application After using Thomson Water Seal for years switched to this brand. I used this on a 25 yr deck that is at 2nd business home. Took 3.5 ga on medium sized deck. It went on easy with little splash stains. At this time I am happy with the product, however, the real test will be next spring after it has been thru a Kansas winter. August 12, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by What have I got myself into?? I have used product before to stain my decks & have been really pleased with the results August 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product! Never chip or peel! Great product! Oil stain penetrates and soaks into wood for an even application. Becomes part of the wood, will never peel! Wood that has had a little time to age will remained stained for 3+yrs. Wood will age gracefully as it would naturally (will not have a partially stained/flakey look). Can always touch up high traffic areas or spots water pools. Great product! Shocked it isn't more mainstream! May 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Stain Ever!! I have used Ready Seal in the past, It is the most forgiving stain EVER,,,,if you spill, drip run etc, it spreads out evenly and blends in,,,,,,,,,and the very BEST part is,,,,,,,,you do not have to strip when you apply the next time, just wash your deck and go for it,,,,,,,,, We applied three years ago, the deck rails are still holding, but our deck is in full sun, and gets alot of traffic, so the floor needs done every year, but like I said before, wash your deck and reapply, we only put one coat on the deck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome This Ready Seal was really well worth the money - I am a 62 year old woman and I did my wooden decks in no time at all. I sprayed it on with a cheap sprayer with ease and then I rolled it just to make it more even. My decks are 14 years old and now look like new. Wish that it was stocked at Home Depot but ordering was easy and it was delivered within 5 days. July 8, 2014
