Answer: 
That depends on the age of the wood and outside temperature. Normally it takes 12-24hrs before you can apply a second coat (if needed). With temps above 70 degrees, the wood will be dry in 4-8hrs.

I almost covered 1980feet one coat(20 6x8 feet panels & some of my 20 posts(2 5 gallon containers), bought a 3rd 5 to finish and give second coat to some areas and posts including where cuts where made.(touch ups)

Bear in mind that you will use more or less product depending on the type of wood you are using. Rough-cut cedar will soak in more sealer than smooth cut. We have a rough-cut cedar privacy fence that we are in the process of sealing, and I have done the side facing the neighbors (our posts and rails are on the inner face of the fence) and I have used about 2/3 of a 5 gallon bucket for 110' linear feet of Read More

I used a roller. I will be spraying the inside of the fence to ensure all the posts and rails get a good coat, and to make sure I get all the nooks and crannies. Make sure your wood is dried completely - instructions on Ready-Seal's website will tell you how long to wait - or it won't absorb the sealer appropriately. Good luck! Read Less

Answer: 
this is only my opinion but I believe that as soon as the wood has a moisture content of less than 15 percent you are good to go. Most people think that there is a mill glaze from the factory but the US Forestry labs could never re-create the mill glaze .

5 gal. Pecan Exterior Wood Stain and Sealer is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 63.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best stain ever purchased! Thank you so much. I love this product! I'm not experienced with stain or home maintenance at all. As a beginner, I am learning by trial and error. This stain was fantastic to use, definitely Goof Proof! After cleaning and sanding my neglected deck, I put 2 coats of this stain on it less than 2 weeks ago. I love the way it went on and how it looked afterwards. If I can do this, anyone can! Thanks for such a great product!! Now time will tell how well it holds up to the elements. See attached pictures.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product - Easy to apply and stain. Purchased 20 gal. Stained my fence and patio. It was 4yrs old.. Cedar 6"BOB - roughly 2050sqft. Used my 2 gallon pump-up sprayer to apply the stain to the wood, then followed up with a paint brush to ensure evenness and cover overlap. It took me and another guy about 4hrs to complete the job. Very simple process and definitely a great product. Here are Before/After pics. it should lighten up with 10-14 days... depending upon the weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Stain Sealer Sprayed 5 Gallons on Boat House and Floater came out awesome and was easy to apply. Goof Proof it Is! Wipes off the galvanized brackets and gray PVC pipe with ease. I made a few runs and when I moved the sprayer I spilled some on the walkway sprayed my way down and the spot is gone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent deck sealing product Stripping and cleaning was the lengthy part, but is the most important segment of the job. Call the Ready Seal company and ask questions on your specific type of wood to be clear on optimal procedures for first coat (e.g., hard vs soft woods - IPE or Press Treated Pine). I have pressure treated pine that is at least 8 years old and was in good surface shape. I attached pictures of the after stripping and also post-Ready Seal - Pecan @ two coats. I used an applicator pad on the flat deck portion and hard to reach areas of deck and brushed in the rails and steps. There is no set procedure, the product does work as specified just don't apply more that the wood can absorb and you will be able to tell when you apply the first coat. Be prepared to go back and add a second coat on same day or a few days to a month later if you notice a good absorption rate. Product can withstand rain soon after application. If brushing, best to wear gloves since some stain will come back down on your hands and wrists when angled up on railing and vertical parts of the deck or fence. Product videos on the manufacturer site shows sprayers work equally well for larger projects. You won't be disappointed in the outcome and the overall ease of maintenance/reapplication over the long term. This is an oil based product, so mineral spirits is required if you want to preserve your brush for reuse. A small can of normal or low odor mineral spirits will work to keep your brush soaked in a cut out plastic bottle or something to similar after use will work until job completion and to keep the brush for the long term..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The other ratings for this stain tell the truth...best stain ever The stain is wonderful. Easy to apply and goof proof as promised. I did my older (last stained 7 years ago) pressure treated wood deck and railings with the pecan color and it turned out so beautiful. Everyone who comes to my house always asks what kind of stain it is (no one commented on my deck before). I think I have sent a lot of people to Home Depot for Ready Seal Pecan Stain because it sells itself. The color and tone are so rich and warm. I highly recommend this product. It has been on my deck since last fall with another coat going on this spring. Still looks great and no obvious issues like peeling or chipping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good stain for deck Stain was purchased after reading many customer reviews on Home Depot sight and several others. Appeared to be the best product out there and after using Ready Seal I agree. Stain was delivered directly to my house with free shipping in about a week. Used on 10x40 deck and 5 gallons covered new treated pine decking but will need more for railings. I would estimate 425 sq ft coverage for 5 gallons. Used semi transparent pecan color and it looked great and showed grain of wood nicely. Applied with roller and brushed between boards and excess stain. Soaked in well and repelled water after rain. Will see how it lasts

Fence looks great with the Pecan stain, fresh "yellow" wood slat-on-slat panels; wood soaked up the stain and required more than 3x the amount I estimated from the Ready Seal charts. We used a combination of pump sprayer and roll/brush-on for the application. Pump sprayer for large-scale areas and brush/roller for detail and when spray over the top of the fence was not desirable. We also found that a light first layer will soak into the wood (ours is new) over a period of several days and the color lightens. Eventually we applied a thicker initial layer and the color remained steady after application.
