Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Easy to Apply I used a sprayer to apply it to my fence. There might be more waste or more that gets on the ground, but it was fast and easy. I think it gets more soaked in than using a roller or brush. It goes on with a white look to it, but as it dries to turns to clear. You can feel a difference on the cedar like you put a clear coat of a sealer or polyurethane on it. Rain beads right off. Can't say how long this lasts on the fence. Mine has been on for just over a week. Clean up is easy with soap and water. Have pictures before, during and after. Not much difference in looks between before and after other than a slight gloss look. July 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by ease of application, enhances natural appearance applied on 2month old louvered privacy fence, power washed with water let dry for a couple of days. Used a small diameter roller and trim brush to apply. very thin like water. Tape and tarp on the house and deck, goes on white or milky dries clear very quickly especially in direct sun. drips will show as white spots if you let them dry, that is what I used the brush for. I put a second coat on a couple of days later used a whole gallon fence is about 260 sq. ft. came out looking like I wanted will see how long it lasts. Can recommends spraying but I just had the house resided and did not want to chance over spray. October 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to use and environmentally friendly I used Cedar Seal to weatherproof a garden bench I'm making out of cedar. The instructions say to spray or dip to apply but I used a 2" brush to good effect. Cedar Seal is a thin white liquid, so it worked well to dip the brush in a small container held over the wood to catch the drips. I applied it outdoors and didn't notice any odor. In general it yellows and darkens new cedar slightly, giving it a warmer, richer tone. It didn't absorb evenly in end grain, so there was some color variation. It also didn't soak in as well on dense knotholes and heartwood, leaving a slight shiny surface in those areas. I had sanded the bench top smooth before applying and noticed it was slightly rougher after the Cedar Seal dried because the grain raised a bit when it got wet from the Cedar Seal. This wasn't noticeable on the rough cedar legs. Cleanup was simple with soap and water. August 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is extremely easy to apply and enhances the look of cedar as soon as it dries. Cedar-Seal goes on white and dries clear, giving the cedar the appearance of fresh cut wood. Applying 2 coats will protect the wood, avoiding the graying of the cedar, which although some people like, I do not particularly care for. I especially like its non-toxic makeup, because I can use it for the cedar on my raised vegetable garden. My neighbors tell me that I have the best looking raised garden bed they ever saw. Cedar-Seal actually brings out the look of the wood, accentuating the knots and character of the wood. May 8, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Time Will Tell Only time will tell.... I am always a bit skeptical of "all natural", "eco friendly" products because my history with these style of products has been less than satisfactory over time. I put previous history behind me and tried this product with an open mind on a cedar planter box that I will be using for vegetables/fruits. Application was easy & minimal odors. Clean-up with soap and water. As others have stated, the before & after looks are quite similar so no major change to the natural cedar look. So far it is handling the outside weather quite well.
