Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 16 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 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 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 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Easy to apply. Low odor. Dries quickly. Soap and water cleanup. After building a new deck and facing it with cedar lumber and composite planks, in an effort to retain the natural color of the cedar and prevent all my hard work from graying, I treated the cedar boards with a popular brand of water-proofer/sealer. Less than a year later, large portions of the cedar boards had turned a very unsightly black, which I assume is mold. Using a belt sander, varying grits of sandpaper, and a lot of time, sweat and elbow grease, I stripped the black off the deck surface to prepare the boards for Cedar Seal. I then sprayed the entire deck surface with liquid (chlorine) shock and allowed that to soak into the wood to kill mold below the surface that may have penetrated into the wood fibers, and allowed that to dry for several days before applying Cedar Seal. Cedar Seal is thin, white and watery, and needs to be stirred before use. The product has very little odor, and smells to me like a popular brand of white glue-all. The product goes on milky white, but dries clear, with a satin sheen. My deck is cedar and framed with a dark composite deck boards. Cedar Seal doesn’t stain the composite, so I was able to apply liberally to the deck surface. Cedar Seal brings out the natural wood grain of the cedar, which is what I wanted. The directions on the can’s label speak to application with a sprayer to achieve maximum coverage, but the product can also be applied with a brush or roller. I applied Cedar Seal to the post and rails with a good quality 2-inch brush and a 9-inch foam roller to the deck surface. The product cleans very easily with soap and water. Seal comes in a metal paint can, which is fine if you apply with a brush and use the product straight out of the can, but it splatters when you pour into a roller tray, even if you are being careful, as I was. The product dries quickly and is clear when dry, making it difficult to tell where product had been applied. As a result, I'm certain I applied product to some areas several times. Within 2-3 hours of application, I was able to place the furniture back on the deck. The next day, I poured a glass of water on the deck and it beaded up. Next week, I plan to apply a second coat of Cedar Seal to the deck surface, to ensure good coverage. It’s too soon to know if the cedar will retain its natural color, but I’m hopeful it will so that the time spent to prep the deck and 3-hours spent applying Cedar Seal won't be in vein . I used about 1/2 a gallon of product to seal my 144 sq. ft. cedar deck. Overall, seems like a good product. I like that it mixes quickly, has no strong, noxious odor, applies easily and cleans up with soap and water. August 11, 2014
