Customer Questions & Answers

Can different colors be mixed together?

Asked by: Pappy
Since the manufacturer recommends mixing multiple cans together to get a color consistency, I don't know why you couldn't. You would have to sample the stains as you go to develope the color you want to achieve, then record the quantities of each if you want to later rematch the new color. I hope this helps.

5 gal. Redwood Exterior Wood Stain and Sealer is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 71.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very satisfied excellent product I purchased 5 different samples of various products for my redwood deck. All the horizontal wood is new and the vertical spindles, posts & latice are old wood. I tested on scraps of old & new wood. I knew which one I liked and consensuses of family was the same. Hands down Ready Seal was best in color richness and absorption. Went on easy,clean up easy, overall finished project is beautiful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product! We have a 13 year old privacy fence that had never been cleaned or protected, I honestly thought it was beyond help, it was pitiful and gray. Well, I decided to power wash it, power washing made a huge difference, the gray wood was gone! It looked so good that we figured our fence had at least 10 more good years so we decided to stain it. I compared products and read reviews and blogs for a couple of days and it seemed like semi-transparent wood stain was the way to go and Ready-Seal was a go to brand, I'm SO glad I decided to go with Ready Seal Redwood. If you have an old, thirsty fence like I do and you plan on brushing it on, with a little rolling (use a lambswool roller), plan on averaging 40-45 boards per gallon (one side of the board), if you're staining front and back, you will average 22 boards front and back. I brushed it on thick and I didn't apply the second coat, it has been a couple of weeks and we've had rain and the stain is as dark as ever. I wish I could show you a photo!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good stain I have to admit at first I wasn't to impress with the product. When I put the second coat and after a few days I could see the color coming thru I like and when people were going by were commenting on the stain like it. I am well pleased with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ready Seal Redwood Wood Stain Bought this stain to apply to my fence and two decks which was 7 years in the waiting. It provided great coverage and made them look new again. The wood really soaked it up. I'm hoping it will last a few years. Do make sure your fence or deck hasn't been previously stained with a colored waterproofing stain because it will have to be "stripped and cleaned" before applying this stain. The only drawback is I wish the sale on the stain had come earlier as I could have save $30.00 per 5-gal bucket and I had purchased 10 5-gal buckets for this project.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A good solution to preserve your outdoor wood. The product arrived, well packaged to prevent damage or spillage during shipment. After reading the instructions, I turned the can over, shook it then turned it upright and removed the plastic, Armlok II, protective seal. I applied the stain, using a thick nap roller, to a recently repaired section of my wooden fence. The color, Redwood No. 120, was a perfect match to my existing fence. The coverage, was as advertised, and the sealant appears to be working according the manufacturers descriptions. I would recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best of the deck stains for decreasing future work The deck had previously been stained with a product that even repelled itself. However, dog urine wore through that stain and the deck looked like it had a skin disease. Because that product couldn't just be cleaned and refinished, the entire deck needed to be stripped by sanding off that finish. We wanted to find a product that wouldn't require that kind of work in the future. Most stains on deck flooring must be refinished every few years. This product can be applied over itself, sparing us from all that sanding in the future. And the color was great, and the wood's grain showed through beautifully. The main thing in using the product is to be sure to follow the instructions regarding the prep of the deck's surfaces prior to its application and to apply two coats thinly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent experience Over the past month I have purchased over 25 gallons of Ready Seal stain from Home Depot, some of it delivered to my house some picked up at the store. The delivery was very quick both ways. I used the product to stain and seal my new wood fence.It was very easy to apply. I used a 12in roller, a small roller and bruches. I applied 2 coats per instructions. The color is redwood. It turned out very very well. I could not be happier with the product or Home Depot.
