Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent!! Superior to all other similar products including Cabot. The only product with a 6 year warranty. Use to be a three year warranty. This is my second application with this product and the first application lasted a full three years as per the warranty. I would be thrilled if this application lasted six years/warranty. The deck is used constantly. Application, clean-up and dry-time are all awesome qulaities of this product. May 28, 2011
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mix well I cleaned an old deck with Oxiclean and power washer, and let it dry for several days. After applying the Wolman Durastain; it was blotchy and had more transparency where we started, lower solid content. It looked great where I double coated to use up the stain in the temporary container. I had to put on extra coats to get consistent coverage and look. I suggest making sure you really mix the stain well, remix if needed during application. The stain dries well and looks true to color. Cleans up with water, despite some confusion on instructions. This is vast improvement from the Behr stain that I use on a different deck. It remained tacky for a full summer and I finally had to cover that with house paint. September 23, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not Great Durability I have used this product for about 10 years on a deck. It doesn't hold up long, flaking and chipping within a couple of years. Rather than switch brands, I have stayed with the product only because I can continue to match the new stain with the old, which simplifies the project. Good prep work hasn't really helped much.
