Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great product It was just as easy as the video from their web site said it was. If you are applying this to a older deck order more than think you need. The old wood really soaks up this product. I have a 17 yr old presser treated 20x40 deck and bought 15 gallons, and only was able to get one coat applied. It looks great. I love the product well worth the wait for delivery and the extra cost of the other things on the self nothing else compares. September 26, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ready Seal Easy to apply,looks great. Use on Decks and fences for 3 years never a problem. October 8, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Stain and Sealer Easy to apply. Absorbs well into the wood. Wish it would last longer before having to reapply August 26, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Horrible Quality- there are much better alternatives out there This is the worst stain I have ever had experience with and I have done a lot of fence staining. It takes twice as much as it should to get decent coverage and the color and treatment does not last long in the hot Texas sun. It is water based so that does not surprise me. But this is one of the worst water based stains out there. You will find yourself restaining after the first 6 months of application and then again every 9 months to a year. Also noticed that it does nothing for sealing. Every new home in the neighborhood a few streets over has warped fence boards after only 6 months and the color has faded greatly. Our HOA requires this locally owned and operated stain brand and will fine you if you use anything different and refuses to switch to a better brand, even after a majority of residents have complained about the quality of the stain. Disappointed that Home Depot is selling such an inferior brand. Cabot Australian Timber Oil is a much better product. October 21, 2014
