F & P have a great product here. Looks really nice, though I will suggest if you are painting a new fence to paint it sooner rather than later having to pressure wash, etc, the old. Can see a difference between the new/old fence but it covered up nicely on the old fence with a second coat. (in the picture new fence is left to middle of pic and then the old fence - old fence has more of a glossy look to it)
Started using an electric spray gun (Wagner) and that worked for about 5 feet of the 1700 sq. ft, - a lot of solids in the stain even after straining. Went out and bought a Husky $35 dollar air compressor "sprayer" and the thing worked perfectly. - though I did still strain the stain before use.
Water beads and runs right off the fence now and it looks really good!!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by bobodaclown Easy to apply and looks good.
Ordered to cover new fence 8' x 64' board on board, 5 gallons covered the face side of the fence. Fence looks really nice. Blends in with the background better. Wife really likes the color.
Used a combination of hand pump sprayer, brush, and roller. Used the sprayer to get the side edges and the face of the setback boards, used the brush to smooth it out, and used the roller for the face boards. Took a majority of the day to complete the job.
The cover has no pour feature, think about getting a 5 gallon roller thingy, worked right from can. Used plastic container to scoop and poured into sprayer.

My deck was 15 years old and had never had anything done to it. It looked really bad but now after a thorough cleaning and applying this stain it looks great. I couldn't be more pleased. It took a lot of stain since the wood was so old and weathered but it must have worked because it really beads up after a rain.
I applied using a roller and a cheap brush for the cracks where the roller couldn't get. Although the directions say to use mineral spirits for clean up, I just discarded the roller and brush after I was finished and cleaned up everything else with Mr. Clean and water.
Ceder is a great color for me. I've attached a photo to show what the color is on the weathered wood and on new wood. The top and rails are new wood and the spindles and decking are old wood.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by CapsHockeyFan Good product, easy to work with
I used this stain on 27-year-old rough-sawn cedar lap siding, that was last stained 6 years ago. It was lightly power-washed and allowed to dry for 3 days before staining.
Reading other users describe this stain as "dark", I thought I would try it, since I didn't mind if the outcome was dark brown & the price fit my budget.
When applying this stain it does go on incredibly dark, but as you can see from the photo, it lightens up after just a few days. (photo is after 9 days of drying)
This stain flows smoothly, covers/soaks in well, and is not too overpowering with VOC's. I used a brush on the siding, and a roller and brush on the deck (which is 20+ year old & pressure-treated). I got about 250 sq ft covered per gallon.
Time will tell how it holds up to the sun and rain here in the mid-Atlantic.
