Answer: 
No, but I would let it dry for 72 hours before you put any soil against it and you should be ok. It is a one coat process and dries quickly. If you are using treated wood you can still paint over it because the Thompson Stain is water based. Happy gardening, Marty

We applied this seal a year or two ago and it already needs redone. Can I just reapply this or will it reject the new stain?

Answer: 
I have experienced that it will reject new finish where the pores of the wood have not opened back up from the previous finish. It will fisheye but I have somewhat gotten around that problem by reapplication when weather is dry and above 80 degrees.

Rated 2.7 out of 5 by 34 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Short lived... Worst Thompsons product ever. New deck, professionally built, cleaned, and dried. THREE coats of Thompsons and I was in love with the natural color and ease of application. As of today I have had to pay someone to pressure wash and sand down the few tiny bits left on the surface. The deck is 1 year old as of last week and this product has been completely gone for over 3 months. Will spend my July 4th weekend using a step ladder into the pool while they finish resurfacing my decking. Nothing on the deck but feet, no furniture to scratch either. Just seasonal foot traffic. I've literally had nail polish last longer. And our winters are mild here I Texas. June 30, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by great product very satisfied with the final results! I highly recommend this product! April 25, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good buy Needless to say, I was a little disappointed in the color and the semi-transparent part. I did not know that Thompson had changed from mineral base to a water base and the waterproofing stain does not apply like the old mineral based products and does not look the same. I am not sure if it was me or the waterproofing stain, but after it dried it looks ok and it is waterproof. April 11, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Did What I Expected I applied semi-transparent Thompson's acorn tint to my 58' X 4' temporary dock on Keuka Lake in upstate NY. I rolled it on then backbrushed it. It lasted through the summer, a winter where the dock sections were stacked outside, and half the following summer on the dock frame. The product is easily applied to a surface that is given a normal cleaning. It will last for a year +, Probably need re-doing every two years. I have yet to find a stain that will last longer in the environment I use it. July 17, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Absolute garbage I have a 5 yr old deck, well seasoned. Pressure washed prior, and used Thompson's deck wash with stiff brush. Then pressure washed again. A little too solid for me , not as semi-transparent as I would have liked. The color was disappointing as well...but too late for that. Areas that seen the most sun lifted the most. Absolute disappointment. Now do sand the deck down and go with a quality stain, or take the chance and stain over this garbage? Not pleased....will be going back to HD to see if they stand behind products, or value their customers. May 13, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst product ever ! Do yourself a favour, if you are tempted to by this product, walk away. It will save you many hours, days, of preparing your deck and applying the product. Initially it looks great. I spent 3 weekends last summer staining the deck, now not even a year later it looks like c..p. The stain is peeling off everywhere. It looks worse then when I started. Never again, this product is utter rubbish. May 14, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by attractive color beautiful color. I selected the semi-transparent so that I could see some of the natural grain come through, which was successful. The product goes on easily and a little goes a long way. It should be applied with a roller, not a brush, as the brush leaves strokes. After application, the water beads right up as seen in the picture. in the picture, you can also get a feel for the color as you can see the unpainted vs. painted wood. I would give it a 5 star, except that I am a little worried about the products durability after a year. hopefully when applied properly, it will wear well June 2, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Junk Used this product on some new cedar siding and wood decking last fall. All surfaces were prepped and dry prior to application. After a (very) mild winter, the stain looks great on the siding, but the decking and railings look as if they have many years of wear. The stain has flaked/peeled off of EVERY knot in the decking and railing, and every area that had foot traffic, and now must be stripped and refinished. Junk. Not a happy camper. April 26, 2016
