Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BigG Best deck sealer
Been using this product on docks for several years. The first dock I did 5 years ago still looks great.
Do not over apply, any stain that is over applied will peel. Can be ordered through Home Depot.
I use a bug sprayer to apply and you must back roll for an even application.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JD I will only ever use this type of stain for the rest of my life
Its a bit watery hence why I think people spray it on. For floors, its very easy to use a roller. For anywhere else, its a bit of a challenge because it will drip. You will want to be creative on the best way to get it onto surfaces that are not on the floor. You will probably feel like you are wasting a lot of product because of the drips but I think you will save more in product rolling it on than spraying it on.
After the debacle of getting it on all the surfaces, you will immediately appreciate the quality of the finish. I have a 6 foot solid wood picnic table sitting on top of my dock. This stain leaves such a protective barrier that my picnic table that used to take a little bit of muscle to move now can be easily pushed and it will slide on the dock. Does the table then scratch the stained dock? No it does not. It really is an amazing product compared to all others I have used.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FloridaHomeOwner Best product ever for wood fencing
16 years ago applied 2 coats to a new wood fence here in Florida. After 10 years pressure washed and applied another coat to freshen it up. Fence is still going strong and looks new overall! During this timeframe my neighbors have replaced their untreated fence twice. Also treated my parents fence about 11 years ago - still looks new. Worth the extra money for this product - to avoid the cost and hassel of replacing fencing. Very glad that I can now get product at Home Depot as my fence does need to be freshened up in a few places - mostly horizontal surfaces. (DO follow the directions about wet surface application so that the product soaks in!)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NNKDock Great Product
We just built a new dock and wanted to make sure that the decking will last a long time. This product was easy to apply and the 5 gallons was enough to seal the 1,000 sq.ft. dock with two coats. It looks great! We read another review regarding the lack of a pouring spout on the container. We used a $3 siphon to transfer the sealant from the 5 gallon bucket into our sprayer w/o loosing a drop.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by joe28704 good product
This is the second 5Gal I have purchased. It has lasted a good two years and could probably go three.
it's very easy to put in on too thick and results will be you have a EXREMELY slick surface. I put it on a boat dock that gets intense sun. THIN and EVEN application is the key for best results. I would rather spray it but this product requires the extra labor. A thick spot WILL become a slick spot. The wood is high grade treated 5/4 decking.
On another dock I spray on cheaper Thompsons product, its' far easier to apply with a garden sprayer and am done in no time, doing every year at half the cost of this product. I cant complain about the Thomson it is not a "solid" coating that you can apply unevenly. On that dock it's 2x6"s so wood is far rougher than previous deck and would not take too well to the Ultra Natural. If you can swing the cost issue you wont be disappointed unless you put in on poorly.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fishbone So Far So Good
The product has only been applied for a month so it is too early to tell how well it will hold up to the scorching Florida sun and summer rain. We applied the product with the recommended pump sprayer which, worked out fine but if I had it to do again, I would have followed the spray with a roller.
The product dries fast and yields a somewhat glossy coat to the decking. We have noticed that when the decking is wet, it is a bit slippery. I have learned that there is a non-skid additive that can be applied with the first coat and probably would have tried that too had I known it was available prior to my application.
I have deducted 1 star from what would be a 5 star rating if WoodRX and Home Depot would do a better job of organizing the information and all details for this product. I had to call WoodRX to get some of my questions answered and was still somewhat confused as to what product was what. All in all I think this is a great sealer but the company could do a little better in organizing the information.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RJLNC Absolutely the Best !!!!!
We have three cabins in NC that we rent to vacationers. One deck is 14 years old and was never sealed. We pressure cleaned it and decided to use WoodRX....best decision ever!
Easiest application I ever did !!! Went on just as shown in the video, sprayer worked fine and evenly distributed the product. It went on smooth and the color was exactly what I was looking for.
And my worst nightmare about painting and sealing is the cleanup....with this product - forget about it !!!! Just rinse everything in water and you're DONE!!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by fencestainer Easy to spray, effective product.
Just used this product. Sprayed well and looks good. We bought the 5 gallon size and it was hard to pour. Coverage was so-so. But to be fair, we were applying it to an older fence, so it soaked right in. Overall performance - good. Hopefully it will last up to 5 years.
