1 gal. Solid Sequoia Red Waterproofing Stain is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME! Thompson's has always been the brand I go to for my wooden decks. Always quality waterseal. This product is no different. I have never tried a sealer with color but my decks are 10 plus years old and I was ready for a change. The color is a beautiful rust color and fits my house perfectly. The seal is good and I am loving it! You will not be disappointed with this product I promise! Very easy to apply and dried quick.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from reat added protection from elements when wood outside This product is a great added protection to MDF or pressure treated lumber when outside in the elements, it gives the wood or lumber a water resistant protection so rot does not start or set in. It comes in a variety of colors to meet your application or needs to match your project. The only downfall is that if exposed to the elements then I suggest to reapply every year to keep the protection on going.

Color looks great and wood is happy and protected. Now we'll wait to see if it lasts 5 years. I had to apply two coatings in some areas where the red was not as solid and more semi-transparent. Repels water like it should.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent coverage! I finally got a chance to use this Thompson's WaterSeal waterproofing stain on a picnic table I wanted to redo. I had to sand off the previous stain completely before applying this stain. Anyway, I'm happy with the result and the table looks nice again (see pictures). This solid waterproofing stain is very thick, gelatinous stuff and looks pinkish-red when you pour it out of the container, but it applies very easily. You might be a little concerned that your surface is going to look pink when you apply the stain, but trust me, when it dries up it becomes the pretty sequoia red color. I used a good quality paintbrush to apply it, but you can also use a roller or pad. The container says only one coat is needed to, at least, waterproof the surface you're staining. I didn't really like the result after one coat (see picture) and I ended up applying three coats. As a result, my picnic table is quite bright red with an orange hue (see pictures) which matches the bricks on our house quite well. The stain dries very fast; the container says in 2 hours, but I found it to be faster. I did apply it on a mostly sunny day in low 70 degree temperatures. The next day it rained quite hard and so the picnic table got tested as to the waterproofing quality of this stain and it's been holding up great. Also, for three coats I only used about one third of the gallon container, so I have enough left for another project. Hopefully, I'll get that privacy fence I've been wanting, so I can match my picnic table in the same color!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sealant We picked this up to add some water-proofing to our kids new swing-set. As we found out that most of the time the "treatment" coating is only for color, not for weather-proofing. you only need to apply 1 coat of this product to the wood surface you need to treat. It dries to the touch within 20 minute. we let it set for 24 hours before turning the sprinklers on and it worked wonders. if you try to apply a second coat, after the first has completely dried, the stain will bead up and not have a uniform look. I found this out by trying to do some touch ups on missed spots and small chips found. the color is more solid and not very transparent, however you can still see the wood grains through the stain. it's been working very well and the water just beads right up and does not adsorb. we used a little over half a gallon on the play-set and used a 3 inch brush to apply. overall it took about 3 hours to coat the entire thing from top to bottom. cleans up with water (when still wet)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes the old fence pop! I've used Thomson's before but never for this purpose. I've used it as porch and deck sealant and coloring and thought I would try it on my old weathered Cedar fence that had been up for twenty years but never painted or treated, just turned the old beaten natural gray. I had started at one time painting the back but thought it looked ugly and frankly difficult for the paint to adhere. I decided to go with a deep more solid red that still allows the natural grains to show but really makes the fence pop when you approach the house. Living in Washington we are known for our rain but going through a bit of a drier spell right now so what rain we have had seems to not have caused any change in color or the sun any bleaching out of the brightness of the finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice stain This Thompson's weather sealing stain covered good and wasn't blotchy. In a solid stain that is important. The weather seal looks good on our picnic table and on the kids playhouse. The one gallon can was more than enough to finish both projects. I was prepared for the miss it made during clean up. I suggest you always read the instructions before you start your project. I really do like the stain.
