Customer Questions & Answers

Can this be applied with a roller as well as a brush?

Asked by: cp
Yes. I used a brush for some parts and a roller for others. I can't tell the difference as far as coverage an appearance.

We are planning to sand the old coats of stain off our deck. What's the next step and how much coverage can ee expect? (Rough vs smooth figures)

Asked by: MTJ
The next step before applying Wolman Raincoat Water Repellent Sealer is to determine if there is a surface barrier present which would prevent the proper penetration or adhesion of a new coating. To conduct a Splash Test, sprinkle several handfuls of water on a few distinct areas of the surface. If the water absorbs rapidly, the surface is ready to be coated. If the water beads, puddles or is not absorbed, an internal or external barrier exists, and must be eliminated before coating can begin. Then follow the preparation steps listed on the can.

Customer Reviews

5 gal. Raincoat Clear Oil-Based Water Repellent Sealer is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 34.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good sealant, easily applied Once I got in the groove of applying this sealant, it went very well. Please note, its not 100% clear; it has sort of a golden hue when you pour it into the sprayer so it slightly "tinted" the cedar fence but not so much that it was obnoxious. Once it fully dried, it was slightly darker than the bare cedar but lighter than when wet. It covered well and so far, seems to stand up well to the rain. Initially, I underestimated how much I'd need and only ordered one 5 gallon pail. The sections of fence that I sprayed (before ordering more) held up really nicely in some recent rains. I've now sprayed everything feel ready for fall and winter. Hopefully, this product will stand up for a couple of years and won't be something I need to do every summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product to protect your deck! This product is much better than the water based treatments. It goes on easily with a sprayer and gives your deck a professional finish. I am very pleased with my purchase. This product needs to be carried in the stores.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent coverage, price Used a pad with pole extender, got 350 sqft per gallon. Price per gal. in stores was $30, this is only $20/gal. Easy cleanup with mineral spirits. Causes rain to bead up and sun doesn't fade the wood. Dries fast too. Enough left over to re-coat again in 2 years on a 1000 sqft deck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to use I researched the available products for sealing outdoor wood structures with the intention of protecting my wood deck railings from the harsh south Mississippi sun. I'm convinced the RainCoat product is the best available and I trust Rust Oleum products from years of successful use of their paints. This sealer sprayed on easily and clean up was a breeze. I used it on both some new wood and some three year old previously unsealed wood. The new wood was good after one coat. The older wood soaked up the sealer as fast as I could spray it on. I waited a week and hit that wood again. After the next rain all wood surfaces were beading the water. I'm very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from wood fence sealer This sealer went on easily with a garden sprayer. It's fool proof to apply. No runs show up no matter how messy it is applied. I just applied it in June so I don't know how long it will last but it seems to have really soaked into the wood. It dries clear but brought out the natural grain in the wood. It was a little pricey but you get what you pay for. j

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I priced water sealers all over the internet from $69.00 all the way up to $250.00 for 5 gallons. I figured this product was a good middle ground. I wanted a petroleum based product, not a water based product. I read all the reviews I could find and bought 2 5 gallon containers. This is really good stuff. It sprayed on beautifully using a 1 gal garden sprayer. Even though it was clear it darkened my cypress fence just a tad and left it a beautiful golden color. Soaked into the wood nicely and was dry to the touch in late afternoon. I used both containers and plan on getting another one for touch-ups. My garden sprayer easily cleaned up with gasoline, which is a lot cheaper than mineral spirits. A final rinse with hot soapy water and it was good as new. I highly recommend this product.
