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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I used this Thompson's WaterSeal to re-finish my ugly grey-ish fence. I first pressure washed the entire fence (a lot of work), then let it dry in the sun for a couple of days. After the fence was entirely dry again I sprayed the fence with this transparent waterproofing stain. Now the fence looks brand new and should keep this look for a while and not go grey again. All together a lot of work but the end result looks so good that it was absolutely worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what we wanted! We purchased this to stain our picnic table and 2 wooden Adirondack chairs. We are going to be replacing our (small) fence this yr or nx and will use it for that as well. We wanted a nice brown stain, but still wanted to see the wood grain. Beautiful! Just like we wanted. My husband did it with a paint brush. It looks like chocolate milk when you are applying it... but it dries to perfection! Highly recommended! Remember to read temperature requirements.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed!!! I decided this year to do a seal with a touch of color. Going by the color on the product it was just what I was looking for. However, when applied not so much. First started using a sprayer which turned out to be a disaster as It went on super super thick. Then decided to use a brush which was easier and looked better as it was applied. BUT, I was expecting and wanting Transparent Acorn Brown but I got RED.. Yes, RED.. It looks horrible and I am disappointed.. The product does seal well but be warned about the color. It's NOT BROWN... For now on I will stick to clear.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from waste of money Treated my deck with this as directed on container. Was a complete waste as color uniformity was terrible from the beginning and now after 1 winter the stain has peeled up all over my deck. I wouldn't recommend this to someone I didn't like. I have never written a review here but am so dissatisfied I felt compelled to try and help someone else. It was a waste of my time and money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great color great protection and lasts all season keeping your projects looking like new The Thompson's WaterSeal stain I got is perfect from Home Depot. Transparent Acorn Brown. I tested it out on a newly installed slop sick in the yard. Perfect! and the wife loves it too. I am going to apply it also to my Gazebo over the next few days as the weather is hot and clear. I also have a deck I may also use this stain color on or maybe use a slightly darker Cedar color stain as that is in the back portion of my yard and gets a great deal of sunlight during the day. I was also using just the clear Thompson's Waterseal the first time I applied the waterproofing to the deck. This all in one product is great. It stains, it seals and last all season long. I like that just like new look so I actually apply the sealer down late spring and again in the fall. Keep the water out of the wood and prevents mother nature from ruining my prized creations.
