As a sealant it works great. It isn't exactly "clear". It has a gold tint to it. We want to preserve the rustic look of an old building on our property. It was a faded red and white. It darkened the red, which was alright, but it dirtied the white terribly. This is not what we had expected.

This wood finish is not quite clear. It will darken a cedar wood fence such that it looks like it does when it is wet. My fence after applying the finish is a pretty honey color. When I asked about the color of the liquid finish (a milky pinkish beige), the company told me most of the clear finishes for outdoor use have a little pigment in them to protect against UV light. They told me that when they are completely clear, one has to reapply every six months or so. I think this is a good value for the money. Delivery was free for just one gallon from Home Depot. The crystal clear finishes that I found cost at least twice a much. The color is a little more yellow than the pics attached. My computer does not show color accurately.

    Great Product. Follow Instructions
    Excellent product. I used this on pressure treated pine colored to look like cedar By the manufacturer. Results were fantastic. TIP: Follow instructions and apply second coat while first coat is still tacky.

      Great Product-Excellent Coverage-Easy Clean-up
      I purchased a 5-gal. container for my fence based on the manufacturer's guidelines and it actually went so much further that I expected. I was skeptical about it being clear as it appeared to be like chocolate milk in the can. I called flood (they actually answer their phones) and asked if this was normal. The response was that it does look milky but drys clear so I moved forward using my sprayer and much to my surprise it does dry clear and gives the wood a warm rich color. I did apply several coats wet over wet to make sure it got good penetration as I am lazy and did not want to back-brush the product and this method worked quite well. I have over 80 feet of custom "wave" fencing and it looks better now than it did new. And clean-up was a breeze. Great product for the money and I am quite happy with the result.

        I stained my cedar gazebo before installing. It looks great and have had lots of comments from friends. We will see how it holds up in 2-3 years when I prepare to seal it again.

        I've been using CWF clear or natural every 4 years. We wouldn't use anything else. We have board and bat siding. The wood has gotten darker over the years from using it. It has kept the wood sealed very good. Great stuff.
