After power washing the deck and applying a brightener I applied two coats of Ready Seal on my deck. It goes on easy with a brush or a roller. I really like the natural cedar color. It looks totally awesome. A picture is worth a thousand words. I highly recommend this product.

It doesn't hold up to North East Washington Winters, it peals off of standard lumber not providing the protection and staining it claims. I put it on in the Summer 2016 and by Spring 2017 it had pealed off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Stain I bought this stain from the manufacture in 2013 after putting a redwood cedar fence around my back yard. I received so many compliments and the UPS driver even asked me what stain I bought. So glad Home Depot now sells it online. I had to restrain the backyard fence this year (2016) and the fence looks like I just installed it. The back yard is a rougher cut of board. The front fence which I installed in 2015 is a smooth cedar and I have had to stain each year. The front also is in full sun which I think contributes to having to restain. I am extremely satisfied with this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to apply, Minimal smell, Rich color The Ready Seal Natural Cedar Stain & Sealer was applied to the Oceanview All Cedar Playset, using disposable foam brushes, Wooser china brustle brushes, and a Linzer flat stain block brush; regardless of which brush used, the stain was easy to apply. For this playset, I used 1 gallon can and a quarter of another 1 gallon can to cover all exposed areas, even underneath the playset. Some areas were drier than others and absorbed the stain quite quickly; for those areas I just kept adding stain until the wood wouldn't absorb anymore. The smell from the stain is quite minimal - much like that of interior paint. When you first apply the stain, it is darker than the color on the can; however, it does lighten to the color on the can. Per the instructions, the stain is rain ready in minutes; after 6 hours, it had rained quite heavily and the stain doesn't appear to have been washed away. I didn't find any temperature guidelines on when to apply the stain; I didn't have any problem applying the coats of stain in temperatures of 55 - 60 degree weather. The cedar color really enhances the wood grain and leaves a nice satin or eggshell finish. The leftover stain was also used on a red oak top; like the playset, the wood grain is enhanced - I just forgot to remove the sticker from the board and that's why there's a lighter square on the board. I did manage to get some stain on the hammock; I used Goo Off to remove the stain and then washed the hammock with Dawn. For section of my hands that managed to get stain, I used Dawn on my hands. As for the brushes (except for the disposable foam brushes), they were cleaned with brush cleaner. If you happen to have the sealer shipped to your home, there is a thick plastic ring around the top that needs to be removed before the can is usable; I cut into the plastic ring using a knife part of my Leatherman and popped out the rest with a flat head screwdriver. The can lid can then be opened with a metal paint lid opener or whatever tool deemed necessary. I didn't see the thick plastic ring when I purchased an additional can at the store.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good stain for the price So far, the stain is holding up but i am sure i will have to re-stain in two years time. the Redwood cedar is new and does have some mill type waxy feel to it, some parts of the stain did not stain well but i knew this going in, i just wanted it protected. i will power wash the deck this fall and will re-stain. the color is right on ( Cedar ) and it goes on great with a staining pad. Don't use too much, it will cover easily. Something to note, the stain does take some time to dry, and when it is dry you do feel some oiliness when you walk on the deck but after a few days you no longer feel that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I am a senior woman and had no trouble applying this product with a small roller and china bristle brushes on 110 feet of fence. I used the cedar color which is nice but knots do stand out since it is a medium shade. I liked the rustic look. The stain goes on nicely and seemed to dry quickly on my new dry pressure treated soft wood. I have had several compliments .

I have used this for 9 yrs and have to re-coat the 500 sq/ft deck by the lake every spring. The Texas summers are very tough on this stain but I haven't tried any others. It appears to just slowly disappear but after re-coating looks good but always darker after each coating. When used around hot tub area which is under a covered porch it has lasted for 9 yrs so far.
