Color is Misleading
I bought this Cedar Naturaltone color thinking it would be somewhat light. Boy was I ever wrong. The color is much darker and provides a reddish tint to my deck. What a waste of money considering I bought two cans. Now I have to buy a stain stripper and redo the whole deck. Would definitely not recommend this color unless the photo is what you're going for.

    Worked well
    I used this same product 4 years ago to seal/stain our covered porch. I decided to use the Maxim in semi transparent cedar naturaltone again. I thoroughly cleaned and allowed the wood to dry before applying. I’m very happy with the end result.

      Good product with no strong smell but the color is not what I was expecting more orange, reddish-brown.

      Not as advertised
      The color is so much darker than the picture, almost like a cherry stain. This went on incredibly streaky and took 3 coats to make it look even (yes, the wood was weathered appropriately, washed, and stained by a pro.) My deck is only 144 sq ft and it took 3 gallons to do the job. I was pretty heartbroken when I saw this color at first but it has grown on me. It's been stained for about 3 weeks now and I really doubt the claim that it will last 3 years, I think it will need another coat next year.

        Hands down the best stain and sealant we have ever used! It made our very old back deck look like a whole new painted deck. The lower fume volume in it was good, too, as I am extremely sensitive to chemicals and I had no problem with fumes from this whatsoever. I highly recommend this stain!!

        I used this stain in June 20 and not even a full year later it looks awful. I spent 40 hours preparing the surface and applied it with a brush and stain applicator to ensure I wasn't using too much stain. It had two days of drying before anyone walked on it. After ONE winter, the sides look perfect but the top where we walk and the benches look like the stain peeled. I'm disappointed that I have to do all of that work again and purchase another few cans at 40 bucks a pop. It's a shame the color was beautiful. I attached a picture of after I finished staining it and after winter.

          Seems to be flaking 6 months later. Waited 2 years for wood to cure.

            Impossible to apply smoothly/even, and the color isn't even CLOSE to the pictures.
            I am so disappointed in this product. I bought it based on the pictures of the product applied to bare/clean wood. I hired a professional painter to apply it and by the time I saw the actual horrible orangish-red color that was going down he had already painted about a quarter of the deck. There was no going back without a full power-wash and likely sanding as well. On what planet do the people at Olympic living if they think this is a"natural cedar" color?! It's awful. It's actually even more red to the natural eye than the pictures show.
