I'm considering this product to treat cedar I'm using to build raised beds for my vegetable garden. Is this a safe product for that purpose? Are there any toxicological concerns for veggies or soil?

Answer: 
I don't know about the chemicals in the stain, but since it is oil based, it killed any grass under my fence and anywhere I sprayed the stain. So . I would cover any plants or soil to prevent any contamination. The stain worked well on my flowerboxes, with good results if you protect the soil. Hope this helps.

Answer: 
Depends if it is a B/B, picket, solid etc. Sq ft is in the specs. If you are doing a B/B, then you can plan on using 50-75% more to get all sides. Let the fence age at least 6 months to dry out and put it on heavy.

Answer: 
Multiply your fence height by your fence length and then multiply that number by two. Then look at the specifications for the stain and see what it says is the coverage area for the stain. Take the product of your height x length x 2 calculation and divide it by the coverage area for the stain. This is the number of cans of stain you will need.

Answer: 
New cedar has a mill glaze or planer's crush that will prevent the stain from soaking into the wood. You can give it a year to "weather" then wash it and stain or you can remove the mill glaze by lightly sanding with a random orbital sander (smooth boards only, don't sand the rough sawn cedar). Either way, the wood should be cleaned. You can mix a cleaning solution of TSP, outdoor bleach cleaner, and Read More
New cedar has a mill glaze or planer's crush that will prevent the stain from soaking into the wood. You can give it a year to "weather" then wash it and stain or you can remove the mill glaze by lightly sanding with a random orbital sander (smooth boards only, don't sand the rough sawn cedar). Either way, the wood should be cleaned. You can mix a cleaning solution of TSP, outdoor bleach cleaner, and water. Depending on how dirty the wood is, follow the dilution directions on the box/bottle. Note- the wood must be completely dry before staining otherwise it will not absorb the stain. Staining new wood will probably need to be re-stained the next year. Read Less

Answer: 
Yes, but you will want to "back brush" with a stain pad. Be careful not to get it on any foliage or grass as it will kill it. Also, careful using the sprayer on windy days. Use a large piece of cardboard to protect area from drifting spray.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 83 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So Far So Good! After doing quite a bit of research, I finally settled on Ready Seal for our deck and railings. I've tried several acrylic products in the past, and they inevitably peel, despite proper preparation and application. After getting frustrated over the years, I decided to go back to an oil based product. I was pleasantly surprised by this stain. It goes on VERY easy, (I rolled the deck and brushed the railings), and it has excellent coverage. The color is rich, but it definitely needed a second coat to get the true color. The stain has only been on for about 2-3 weeks, and as expected the water is simply sitting on the surface of our 20 year old deck when it rains. We'll see how long it lasts, but so far, so good! It looks great and was super easy to apply! June 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Truly Foolproof Our deck had not been cleaned and sealed in several years, and it showed it. After power washing and allowing the surface to dry, I applied what turned out to be the first coat of Ready Seal. I had hoped to get by with a single coat, but the wood was so porous and dry, that I knew it was going to take two coats to get the coverage I wanted. Even with a day or two of rain and drying between coats, the seal covered smoothly and evenly and showed absolutely no areas of inconsistency between the two applications. Then, it rained again right after the second coat, with still no adverse effects. Now that it has had a couple of weeks to fully soak in and cure over several sunny days, I couldn't be more pleased with the product. The only two things I would note. First, if you're going to apply it with a pump sprayer, which I did, be sure to use a sprayer with sufficient pressure to actually spray the seal. It is just thick enough to require a good sprayer to actually "spray." Otherwise it just dribbles. (FYI: I started with a new Deck & Home Sprayer, and it was totally insufficient for the task. Don't be misled by the name of that sprayer.) Second, if your wood is old and weathered like mine, it will most likely finish darker than the color samples of the Natural Cedar. It is not unattractive -- just darker than if were used on newer wood. I am extremely pleased. See before and after photos attaced. May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Professional results, reasonable price. I have used many different stains and sealers on many different types of wood on many different decks and fences and I have to say this is the easiest product to work with. The product brushes and sprays very easy and there truly are no lap marks even when there are days between applications. The material is easy to clean up and the results are beautiful. I am very happy with this product. April 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best deck stain ever! This is a stain and not a paint. This is not water based it is solvent based, you clean your brushes with paint thinner or mineral spirits. I used it on a 20 year old deck that had never been cleaned or sealed. The deck was built using pressure treated lumber. After pressure washing the deck and letting it dry for 3 days I started staining the deck with Ready Seal. The wood just sucked it up like a sponge. I bought a 5 gallon pail and used 4-1/2 gallons. I was amazed that when it rained about a week later the water just beaded up like it does on a freshly waxed car. It's been about a year since I stained the deck and the water still beads up. It is starting to lighten up so I think I will put down another coat this fall. This is a GREAT product and I will use it on any outdoor wood that needs protection. June 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cedar Stain This product was easily applied with a sprayer and had excellent coverage. It was used to stain and seal an old, wood water tank. It is rather expensive, however, time will tell if it is worth it. Now, it certainly appears that the product was worth it. June 21, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice color The stain was just as it is supposed to be and did what it supposed to do but it is quite expensive. Has a very nice color to it. June 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by High quality material I used paint sprayer and applied heavily. All of the messy runners and drips blended and disappeared June 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good "stuff"! I can't imagine using another product on a deck. Easy to use, pretty much goof proof as far as application goes. Roll it, spray it, either way works great and it penetrates so well there is never a lap mark. June 7, 2016
