    Stained a brand new cedar deck. Followed all the guidelines. Less to an 9 months later it looks horrible. Peeling, flaking, spotty. Pass on Flood products. Customer service is non existent.

    Response from Flood Product ExpertAug 2, 2021
    Hi there, we are sorry to hear about this. There are two things that often cause stain to peel -- applying too many coats or the surface was not porous enough to accept stain. Always make sure the previous stain/paint has been safely removed from the surface in order to let our stain penetrate in. If you have any questions or other concerns, feel free to give us a call at 800-321-3444 between 9am-5pm EST Monday-Friday. PPGFlood

      Best on a fence
      I was skeptical at first. However the home depot employee was correct. It works excellent on an old fence. It restored beautifully. I suggest you sand your fence for a lighter tone of cedar. I suggest rolling or spray to use less paint. I didn't know & used a brush that took for ever & overused the product. I should have ordered the 5 gallon bucket vs buying individuals cans . This was a cost effective solution until i can fully replace the fence!

        Flood Cedar Tone
        I am very happy with the transformation of my house using Flood Cedar tone stain. I used a airless sprayer to apply 2 coats to the exterior Cedar shakes and the Red Cedar trim boards stained dark brown. The result is amazing. The neighbors are complimenting how it changed the look of my house. After 2 applications. The stain puts a sheen on the wood and water just beads off. Hopefully it will help preserve the shakes for another 15 years!!

          fence project
          First time I’ve used this product. Started using a simple wagner sprayer, but i still had to brush it down in spots so just switched to using a brush. Not bad but stir often for consistency. A little darker than i like, just hope it lasts a few years. The wood was commercial cedar fence boards using psi treated 2x’s for frame. Fence was up for a month prior to stain. Price was right!

            Ordered this product online and it was delivered quickly and undamaged. I waited 4 weeks for the fence to dry thoroughly and cleaned the fence to removed the sawdust that was on the boards from the manufacturing process. I used a Wagner stain gun to apply this product, backed up with a roller brush. It went on nicely and penetrated the wood evenly. I am pleased with the results and transformed a plain looking fence into a beautiful fence with deep cedar color. This should extend the life of my fence for many years.

            Once the wood deck was cleaned (pressure washed and bleached), this product was applied. Two or three coats were needed as the wood absorbed the product. Looks terrific. Negatives: barefoot on the "hot" wood can be uncomfortable and can be slippery when wet. I am told this will abate over time. Just applied and I am told should be refreshed in 18 months.

            This is a pretty solid product. With a smaller deck, I prefer to use a brush as opposed to a roller. The brush provides a deeper penetration in the wood fibers. It dried into a deep, rich finish. I use this product and recommend it too.

            Awesome product for price!
            I used this finish on two retaining walls. Both walls are made out of pressure treated wood and were installed about a year prior to staining. I did follow the instructions for cleaning with the bleach solution and scrub brush. I also did some quick sanding before applying the stain. When I started applying, I was nervous about the cedar color because I was trying to match a cedar fence and the color on the retaining wall looked more orange. I kept going anyways and did two coats (second while wet). After it dried, it the color matched perfectly! I also love how you can still see the grain of the wood after the finish is applied. The stain was very easy to apply and cleanup was just soap and water. I plan to use it on many more projects. I have have over a half gallon left after doing two coats on both walls. This is a great price for the quality.

              I bought a total of 3 of these to refinish the entire deck, floating deck and stain the entire fence line to match. I did a double coat on deck and single coat on fence. Will probably go back and do another coat on fence. Great color stain. I prepped by pressure washing everything first.

                Looks great
                Stained the deck and looks great. I used 2 coats on the railings and one thick coat on the flooring. I like the pecan look. I did buy 2 five gallon buckets of paint to complete the job. I did paint the underneath side too. Our deck is 15ft by 30ft for reference. The first 5 gallons took care of the stairs, railings, and flooring. Only had to use about 3 gallons for underneath side of deck.

                      This is a great product! After pressure washing the dock & boat house, my wife and I applied 15 gallons of Flood Cedar Tone stain. I purchased three 5 gallon buckets, and the end result looks great. I had a party for the 4th of July, and received many compliments after staining the dock & boat house. The price is great, and this stuff dries quickly; On some days it rained a few hours after applying, with no issues. Five stars!
