Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Joey A longer life for exterior wood.
This product is one of the best wood preservatives I have ever used. I highly recommend Woodlife® for all applications where the wood may come in contact with the Earth. Unfortunately, you will have to order online as it is not a stock item and your local Home Depot.
Where I want the project to look aged I mix 50/50 Woodlife® and black latex paint. When dry it will provide a weathered gray appearance and greatly extent the life of the wood. I have also done the same using red latex to offer a weathered redwood aspect.
Application is easy using a brush, roller, airless spray or dip. Regardless I highly suggest that you use latex or rubber gloves. Cleanup is a breeze using soap and water.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by PTrout Won't know if it's any good until I see how it stands up for awhile.
It goes on easy, like water, and the smell lasts for quite awhile. Have to wait and see if it holds up.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by smelly Good bargain
Great product. If used as directed the smell is not an issue. The insects hate the smell also. Also it is not a stain. The green is just the color of the product. It helps tell you where you've already treated the wood

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jkrin170 Looks good
Product applied easily, and looks to be doing as it said it would. With the smell of it before it drys it should deter most anything.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Backwoods Great for fence posts and wood fences.
I used to use old fir logs for fence posts untreated for a quick fence but after awhile they rotted at ground level. but I put up a fence around my garden using 7 foot lengths of Doug fir for post and braces and soaked in this stuff they not only look good and rustic but they're still holding up strong even the partly rotted brace. It's good stuff, but the smell stays with you awhile. I'd suggest wearing gloves and coveralls when using it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NCNinTX Very satisfied with this product
Goes on easily and penetrates well. Bought it to increase protection of already treated, non-ground contact wood. Takes three or four hours to dry so give yourself some time. I ordered the five gallon pail but this stuff covers so well that I could have been O.K. with one gallon. I expect that this preservative will really do the job

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pguter Preliminary evaluation
Bought this to use next summer and it will take about ten plus years to see if it is affective. The product has a good reputation though.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by John I wouldn't think twice about ordering this again
I poured it in a container to apply it to exterior posts and beams. Its a blue dye looking color in the container. I applied it all over and was very impressed. There was a slight green ting however not even close to the picture on the container. I think pressure treated wood has a greener color then this when applied to rough cut hemlock. It doesn't smell to good (even a couple weeks later), but I didn't buy it to to smell it. I am pretty confident this is exactly what I wanted in order to preserve the wood. I probally wouldn't use this on a residential building. I used it on a free standing structure all above ground. I have footings in the ground. (a place to park my tractors). I don't think I would want this within 30 feet of my house because of the smell (which isn't super bad).
