Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by APaul 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by JHP 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.

This product was just as advertised. Applied to my deck using a garden sprayer with great results. Looks great and very easy to use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Oscar First time use
Bought this after reading reviews and must say it did exactly what I wanted it to do.
I used a garden spray applicator which should have had more pressure as it went on pretty heavy.
It all soaked into the wood and seems to be doing the job.
Time will tell when I go to re apply it in a few years.
I plan on pressure washing then re apply.
Just used gas for clean up.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FrankRizzo Great Stuff!
I bought an airless sprayer at HF for about $200 and sprayed the wolmans straight from the can on to my 2 week old redwood fence. My fenc guy wanted $2k!!! It worked great and soaked in nicely without changing the color or adding anything we did not want. Since it was primarily oil based, it was pretty easy clean up (still needed mineral spirits) and the mess was minimal. If it works as well as everyone says, it is a great value.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Trouble 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.

Nice coverage and wood penetration...so much better than water based products. Looks beautiful on cedar!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RS penetrates into the wood much more effectively than a stain
This water repellant can be used in place of a stain. It is thinner (less viscous) than water and therefore penetrates into the wood much more effectively than a stain. I'll learn how long it lasts and how well it stops mold and mildew from forming in the years to come.
