Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product. Really like this product. Used this on a dock. Used a paint roller and it went on great. It's a thicker product than Thompson's Waterseal. The transparent stains but you can still see the grain of the wood. The color had a little more orange tint than we expected. It appears that it is going to give us years of protection. We did part of our dock with the semi-transparent and part with the transparent. You can see the difference in the pictures. September 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Refreshed the security light pole system Gotta love it used it first to refresh the security pole /light colored the wood with deep maple color and it soaked into the wood evenly and restored the pole and painted also the concrete base and going to see over the next year of PUNishing Texas sun to evaluate it's Texas ability then post an update July 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to use I first used it to waterproof the handrails around the deck (kind of as a test) and will soon use it for the actual deck. The first rain showed that the water now puddles on the wood rather than getting soaked up, so it works. The paint is a little thicker than normal stain and therefore it is easier to use and doesn't drip as much. June 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I have a new best friend! I got two versions of this product. One is the transparent and one is the opaque or solid color. I recently used the solid one on an old deck that was just at the edge of needing some repair - not quite terrible but some areas beginning to be suspect. Since we are prepping the house for sale I wanted everything tip top. I was SOOO impressed with the darker stain. It is not what I expected. It was about the consistency of chocolate pudding except it stayed on the brush and didn't drip all over. The coverage was excellent and the end result was awesome. I hope I can figure out how to upload the photo. It gave the stairs a new life. Once dry the water stands on the surface like a newly polished car finish. It took less than a gallon to do this landing and stairs. June 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product and great application Works as advertised. Application goes great by either brush or sprayer. Stain is a light translucent but still keeps much of the original wood color intact. Rain and water spray bead right off the treated surface with no issue. July 4, 2014
