        Dishartned and Sadden by Splotchy Results
        I am in tears after many hours of back-breaking-on-my-knees-work going down the drain when the stain results were splotchy - really splotchy - like really really splotchy. I spent weeks resurfacing my deck including many rounds of cleaning, sanding and prepping the old and new cedar. I replaced some old boards with new cedar while planing down old wood and then cleaning and sanding all the wood over again so the cedar has the absolute best chance to work. The raw wood look great and ready to go. Well it didn't work at all. On my hands and knees again, I applied a smooth even thin coat and look what I got - a really bad deck stain. I noticed something was going wrong as the stain even with thin coats applied with a stain sponge was puddling. I wiped off the excess stain. It was applied at 65 to 70 degrees no humidity. In the picture, left side of deck is new wood which was washed with a deck cleaner to remove mill surfaces, and sanded to allow the stain to be absorbed. The stain did not take. Middle picture was old resurfaced wood planed, sanded and washed. It took the stain better but still not great. Right is wood waiting to be stained that I won’t stain now until there is a solution to remove the new stain. Once this stain goes bad, there is nothing you can do but go back to the drawing board because you can’t use a second coat to even things out. It doesn’t work. It will peel right off. It is the end of the season so I will have to wait until next year and spend thousands more to do it all over again. I could do nothing but sit with my love and dog crying over the wasted effort. BTW: I am well experienced home DIY including building and staining decks. This is third time refinishing this deck. This is the first time the results were bad.

          I bought this to stain my son's Rainbow swing set (Castle pkg II) that was purchased 3 years ago. Color match is almost identical to factory color. Took over 10 hours staining by brush/sponge but couldn't be happier. Took a gallon to finish the job without staining the underside of steps, flooring and rockwall.

          peeling
          We got this after having disastrous results with Rescue It and having to replace our deck and railings. We applied it after waiting the one year period and cleaning it. Not even one year later we have areas that are peeling like paint. Now we will have to get another product and redo everything. We will no longer get Olympic products.

            Goes on very uniformly...
            I've learned through experience that the key to a beautiful Deck Refinishing is surface preparation. I know we've all read it and heard it multiple times but it's the absolute gospel. I have a 20 year old Cedar Deck that I refinish every couple of years and I have tried every product on the market. Well close to it. The best results are always when I make that extra effort to prep the surface. For me that means sanding, power washing with cleaner brighter and allowing to dry before you apply the stain. This Olympic preformed wonderfully being applied in 90 degree full sun and was dry to the touch in a couple of hours. We'll see if it can hold up to Chicago's crazy weather extremes for more than a season, If I can get two season's i'll be satisfied.

              Did not work as promised
              I followed the exact directions twice in the last 2 years and both times the Olympic Maximum Stain failed. Now I have to restain and seal my deck again. I will never by this product ever again!!

                Desert Sand
                I have used the Olympic Maximum on our 24 year old deck for at least the last 15 years. The sealer had always lasted 5 years. This year we choose a tinted color rather than clear. Prepped with deck wash, power washing, and one week of drying just as always. This stain went on hard, but looks great after one day. Sorry, not the best photos.This product was BRUSHED into the wood which I think is critical for a long lasting finish. If you use a sprayer, roller, or pad I think you are asking for problems. I am not real happy that this is now a water based product, but if it works as well as the old oil based product I will be happy.

                  Absolutely Awful - Pearl Gray
                  This is my deck on day five after staining on 6/21/2019. You can see how the site shows it should look against the results on my deck. It looks as if it were stained ten years ago and used hard. We wanted our deck to show the grain, but now we have no choice but to stain again with a solid to cover up this mess. This is a deck built in September 2018, and this is the first stain application. Now my deck looks like trash.

                    Great Stain. Great Color.
                    I stained my deck recently, and I am thrilled with the results. I stripped the old stain, cleaned the deck, and then used the same color as last time. It took very well to the wood, and it came out great. My wife likes it too, and that's what really matters.

                      Label does not inidcate this is WATER based
                      I have used the oil based version of this product for years and loved it. Bought a 5 gallon to redo my deck and realized while applying this was a completely different product. Turns out it is water based. NOWHERE on the label does it indicate it's a water based product. The residual drips on the top of the can are dissolving in the rain. I can't imagine this is going to last. UGH what a waste!

                      Hi there, we're sorry to hear your experience with our stain wasn't what you expected. This product is made using an acrylic/oil hybrid resin package, and acrylic based formulas are water based. The oil in the hybrid is used for penetration, and acrylic used for adhesion. We are happy to further discuss and provide solutions for you, so please give us a call at 1-800-426-6306 between 8am-5pm ET.
                        extremly disappointed
                        I have used Olympic Maximum stain on 2 decks/porches for years. I had a new deck built in 2016. Stained it that fall & all was well for a year, but then the winter of 2017-18 the stain started coming off. Cleaned & restained the whole deck in fall 2017, and did a 2nd coat after 30 days, and it didn't even last 6 months! And it's very slippery. I've never had an issue on my other decks & they are 20+ years old & have been restained maybe every 5 years with no issue. What happened to this product?? It used to be great. My other decks are due to be restained but now I don't think I should do them & ruin what have been beautiful for years.
