Answer: 
Wolman RainCoat Water Repellent Sealer is fortified with a mildewcide that resists mildew growth on the coating film. And, its powerful 3-part water-repellent system works longer than typical sealers to prevent water penetration. It is difficult to give an amount of time any coating, including Wolman Raincoat Water Repellent Sealer, will last. In most cases, coatings can last anywhere from 3-5 years. Read More

Answer: 
To shield wood against water damage, apply one (1) new coat every three (3) years. In areas exposed to severe sun, heavy precipitation/humidity or extreme temperatures, recoat every two (2) years to maintain water repellency protection.

I have a new 500 square foot deck, rails, and two 9 tier sets of steps and need to seal it. Is the oil base the best choice or is water base just as good? Which last longer? How many gallons will it take?

Answer: 
For new wood, RainCoat One Coat Clear Sealer is recommended. Unlike other water-based sealers that require wood to be weathered for months, RainCoat One Coat Clear Sealer can be applied immediately to newly installed wood to stop rain and other precipitation from damaging wood. One gallon will cover approximately 250 square feet. In order to cover the stairs and rails as well, we suggest purchasing 3 Read More

Hi Keith, I prefer oil base products when available. They last longer and maintain the look of whatever the product is that you applied it to. Below is the coverage from the instructions.
Covers approximately 150-200 sq ft on rough surfaces and 300-350 sq. ft. on smooth surfaces per gallon

Answer: 
We do not recommend using Wolman® RainCoat® Clear Water Repellent on a canvas awning as it is designed for wood surfaces only. Instead, use Rust-Oleum NeverWet Multi-Purpose Spray Kit. This product is suitable for use on exterior canvas surfaces and dries to a flat finish. Keep in mind this product needs to be reapplied when water no longer rolls off the surface. Read More

Answer: 
I doubt it. I would use a acrylic latex paint which would work as long as it wasn't subjected to too much wind, which could crack the paint. The paint I am referring to is used to seal foam roofing and keep it safe from UV.

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 18 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lasts surprising long Good seal --lasts longer than others but it's an oil for clean-up. May 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by just one coat I gave it 5 stars even though ive yet to put it to the test. I have to say though, i put a second heavy coat on and it has yet to dry. I cant blame the product though because it is clearly called " one coat". One coat is apparently all you need! March 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very good quality at an exceptional price. I was surprised to find this product for about 70% of the price at my local paint store. There was such a big difference in price that I contacted Rustoleum, who own the Wolman's brand. Rustoleum assured me that it was the exact same product available through Home Depot. For my project, I saved about $90. August 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great sealer I bought this sealer based on past reviews, I was not disappointed. It arrived within 4 days. I easily applied it on my 800sq.ft.wood deck, with a stain pad applicator. In less than six hours it was dry to the touch. The next day it rained and the water beaded up on the sealed wood. So far I am very impressed with wood sealer. October 13, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amazing This product is amazing. My deck looks new and it brightened it up. We'll worth it!! October 20, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by raincoat clear sealer A good sealer for wood which isn't to old or degraded don't expect it in the "natural" or "clear" to change color at all, after it is dry you can not tell it was applied. Make sure if you are a commercial applier that the owner sees it wet, or they might think, nothing was applied. September 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by raincoat clear Fantastic results! Will use again in future. Perry NY. September 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love it I used a brush to apply. It was easy and looks beautiful. I did my new cedar privacy fence. My new deck is being built and I will use it on the deck as soon as it ages a little. September 1, 2015
