Customer Questions & Answers

I had no idea I needed to treat the wood pressured treated wood I bought. Should I buy Thompson's and treat the pressure treated wood ?

I had a great handyman build us a beautiful deck for our above ground pool. He never said a word about needing to do anything with the pressure treated wood. So I never did. I recently saw an ad so Thompson s in the Sunday paper. Should I get some and treat my deck?
Asked by: ShirleynDeanna
LET NEW PRESSURE TREATED DECKS DRY BEFORE USING STAIN... A one month minimum dry time is recommended. That said, I'd wait as long as the painting season permits. If you have three months before it will get cold down there, then wait until then. It's important to have three good, consecutive dry days before applying the stain when ultimately decide to do it. And two-coat everything with a quality stain. Ask the paint store person about doing it and which product to use. Some stains are meant for walls and some for walking on.

Will this product work on a pinic table i built? Will the tint stain clothes?

Asked by: Bert
Hello. As long as surfaces are completely bare and porous, as well as prepared per the back of our labels; you can apply our Waterproofing Stain on a picnic table. We recommend 24-48 hours for our product to dry with no rain or moisture in the area before use. As long as our product penetrates completely into the wood, it should not transfer to or rub off on clothes. Regards, Thompson’s WaterSeal Customer Support

Can I apply an exterior polyurethane over the transparent stain to achieve a high gloss finish?

Asked by: Jasper
Hello. Unfortunately we do not recommend applying a product over the Thompson's Waterseal. Our products are waterproofers, and therefore no product will be able to adhere. This will result in the topcoat peeling and flaking off the wood. Our products are meant to be used by themselves. Regards, Thompson's Waterseal Customer Support

1 gal. Transparent Acorn Brown Waterproofing Stain is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 31.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good finish This is a good finish. Low odor, and goes on great while letting the grain show. It also cleans up very easy with soap and water. The recoat is a bit difficult and very dependent on weather. The hue is a decent shade of brown...not too red, not too dark...just right for me but it is difficult to gauge if you are tryouts nag to match any specific color scheme. The wood grain plays a lot into it as well as the application. We have been bombarded with rain and water t has been difficult to find time to lay it down and now that I have and it has rained again, it beads quite nicely however, the performance of the same in semi-transparent has been less than ideal and re coat is quite difficult.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2 years still looks great!! It's been two years since I applied this to a pressure treated dog ear fence. usually after a couple of rains these fences fade. Needless to say mine hasn't. It still looks great. Applying it is tough depending on what you use. I found a roller with thick nap the best except in corners. A sponge works well too but causes more waste. Sprayer was a no go, splatters and you wind up having to sponge it around. Definitely worth the buy depending on your project. The color is pretty transparent, so keep in mind it will only slightly enhance the color you already have on whatever it is your sealing.

Recently bought a hose with a deck that had not been cleaned or treated in a few years. After power washing and allowing to dry for a few days I used roller to apply the Thompsons. I put a second coat on after 24 hours and am extremely pleased with the results. Applying with a roller was a breeze and the color is great. Used two coats because deck soaked up the first coat like a sponge. Second coat glided on no problem and dried in a few hours. Great finish and appearance. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to apply and give wood just a little something Basically a step up from plain water sealer with a splash of color. The liquid itself has a lot of color but does not transmit to the wood very much. As you can see from the photos, the wood stays pretty much the same color with a highlight of the grain. Repels water beautifully for 3 years on flat surfaces and 4 years on vertical surfaces. Easy to apply and clean up

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Best water sealer ever! Used this a year ago on my deck that was never stained or sealed. I sanded the deck well and applied Thompson Watersealer with a flat brush. Went on smoothly and evenly. Took me one afternoon. The color is a nice shade of reddish brown. Still looks fantastic and water repellancy has remained. Excellent product!
