Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Faisal Truly satisfied with this stain
This stain gave a new life to our deck, shed ramp, shed base frame and our mail post. Directions labeled on the container were very easy to follow. In fact, I did not have to do any prep work as it requires no primer. I used the spray gun on the deck, a roller on the ramp and brush on the mail post. It worked well with all three. We stained 2 coats on the deck to get a bit dark stain since it gets the sun all day.
Talking about mail post, the stain looks so good that our neighbors thought we got a new post. Knowing the brand, I am not much worried about longevity. Go buy it, you will like it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by fuscia Water Proof and Refresh the Look of Your Outdoor Wood
I chose this product because my fences were looking pretty bad and being attacked by mason bees every spring. I decided to go with Woodland Cedar because I love cedar. I think clear would have been more the look I wanted, but I find that transparent looks very nice. It's a great way to update and refresh the look of your out door wood features, while water proofing it as well. I'm not sure if it's deterring the mason bees, but it's definitely repelling the water. I found this product went on even and smoothly and I was able to complete each fence section with ease.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by reb177 Beautified my 1-year old deck
This was easy to apply with roller and brush and dries quickly. Clean up is easy with soap and water.
It took 1.5 gallons to cover my 12ft x 12ft deck (144 sq.ft),despite the specifications saying a gallon will cover 300 sq.ft. Stain finish was slightly darker than I expected but very pleasing. The water sealing is promised to last 3 years on deck surface (horizontal) and 4 years on posts/fences (vertical).
See the pictures for before and after comparison. I pressure washed the deck but used no chemicals, just water, in the morning. Then in the evening I applied the waterseal/transparent stain (the directions say shouldn’t be applied in direct sunlight, hence, evening).
This proved to be a definite improvement of my deck, which is one-year old.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WonkySeaDonkey I couldn't be happier!
I bought 1 gallon of this to stain and reseal all the wood on our 8'x9' hot tub. After stripping the tub with a pressure washer and letting it dry for a day, I got started. I was a little worried when I poured it into my paint tray. It was almost a flesh color. I was even more worried when I made the first brush stroke and that fleshy color was all over the clean wood. After about 15 minutes though, the cedar color set in and it is absolutely gorgeous. Coverage was super, I did one coat and see no need for a second one. I did the entire hot tub and still have about half a gallon left. I applied this with a cheap economy 4" paint brush and it worked perfectly. So easy that I went ahead and did the picnic table really quick while I was at it. This is one of the easiest to use products I've used in a long time. I highly recommend it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cmh33 Looks and works great!
I received this awhile ago but did not want to post a review until after it had rained at least a couple times after applying to my back wood porch. Well it has rained quite a bit the last couple weeks since we applied the waterproofing and this worked very good. It wend on very easily when applying and dried pretty quick. I got a very even and consistent coverage with this. I am very happy with this color as well. My back porch was unfinished prior to applying this, the house was built in 2007 and we never thought to use anything until now and after 8 years we really needed it. I am very happy and will recommend the Thompson water seal brand.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Aayan Easy to apply, seals well, lasts a long time
This product performed great sealing my deck and giving it a new appearance. With no primer or mixing required, application was a breeze. I used an electric spray gun to cover large deck area. This stain has just the right viscosity that it had no trouble flowing through the spray gun nozzle giving my deck a nice even finish without any spatters. With single coat application and 100 degree temperature, it dried within an hour. Each gallon covering 300 square feet with single coat lasting 4 years translates to peace of mind and money well spent. I am all for it and highly recommend it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by thesimonfamily A great sealant
Easy to use and does an outstanding job sealing wood from moisture, rot and fade. The only thing nice is that it didn't darken the wood. A must use for Outdoor Wood , If you want it to last.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HDKevin Easy application. Great color
I used the sealer to do the wood decking on a 5'x12' trailer. I brushed on with a 3" synthetic brush
The trailer sits outside all year long and has 2 year old pressure treated lumber.
The wood was not overly dry but took the stain nicely. I was able to do the entire deck with about a quart. Water beads off nicely now and I expect many years of protection
Cleaned up easily
