Wolman 1-gal. Raincoat Clear Water Repellent Sealer is a 100% clear, matte finish water repellent that allows wood to gray naturally. Raincoat Clear is a water-based formula that protects wood from water damage caused by moisture absorption. Works longer than typical sealers and minimizes cracking, checking, splitting and warping.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by still the best As a licensed contractor I've built about 150 homes in a cat 3 hurricane zone over the last 25 years. Unwilling to trust various manufacturer claims, I performed my own 5 year open air, ocean front tests near Cape Hatteras using 6 leading clear water repellent sealers on 6 different types of wood. Wolman Raincoat was the definite best in all respects. Since I completed my tests and then retired, the formula has been changed. Recently, when I tried to buy some for my own house, I was unable to to find a distributor until I tried Home Depot on-line for the second time. Glad I did - the product seems as good as ever, possibly even better. August 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by So far I would recommend this product. I went with water based due to going around a pool and lots of plants around the deck. Product went on very easily with sponge mop for deck staining. Dried really quick in the TN sun and still beads up great in the rain. The warranty says 3 years with the single coat I did, I will not complain if it lasts at least 2 years. I have a 4000sq ft deck and wouldn't mind treating every other year at this price. In a few years I will try to update my review if able. Applied 20 gallons on 11 July 2013 in Big Rock, TN. July 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good price, great coverage, true clear coverage This a good product for applying to decks where no color is added. I highly recommend it and wish Home Depot would stock it in their stores. It's a good value. May 15, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Looks like skim milk in the can; unsatisfactory end look Watery product, applied easily, but looked no better than before application. Wood seems porous and dry. No confidence that it is providing protection form rain. October 22, 2012
