        Great stain!
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The best stain! We used this for our outdoor deck in Dallas, Texas and it worked great. Easy to use, low smell and so far the stain still looks new after all the sun we receive in Texas, we had over 100 days of over 100 degree temps.

          Despite some of the bad reviews I thought this product was excellent. Obviously time will tell. I only got one year out of the last product I used. This product went on easy and had excellent coverage. I have a large deck and used almost 10 gallons! with the last product, I probably only used 2/3 of the 5 gallon Olympic. Penetration was good and durability seems good so far. Easy cleanup as well. I would not recommend the cedar color however as it was orange, ended up going back and getting the royal mahogany and I was much happier with the color.

          I put this on a 28-year-old deck, all original so it's not in the best of condition. I had to use a roller because of some of the boards that have splinters. This is a 16x30 deck and it took about a gallon and 3/4's to cover it thoroughly. I did it in two parts over 3 days and I couldn't be happier with the results. I'm sure it won't last more than 2 years because of its condition but I'm hoping for three.

            Canyon Brown is ORANGE
            I chose this color specifically for the brown - it turned my brand new fence varying shades of orange!! Looks terrible and totally ruined my fence. Thousands of dollars down the drain and I have to look at this every day. Furious and so disappointed.

            Hi, we're sorry to hear the color wasn't as expected. We recommend applying the stain in a small inconspicuous area before starting your project. Feel free to contact us at techservicerequests@ppg.com or 1-800-441-9695 between 8am-5pm ET. OlympicPaint

              I used this exact stain 4 years ago on my deck and fence and it is now showing signs of wear on the deck. The product stated it would last 4 years on a deck and that is true. I just re-applied this summer. The fence is still looking good. Easy to clean up.

              It's a good product but for some reason some parts of the deck are lighter then others, I didn't want to do a second coats as the directions say not to so maybe next year I will do it all over. Also don't like how you have to have it made/mixed/tinted at the store instead of getting it and just going.

              Being an oil based stain this stuff is very durable. Forget warer based stains which dont last long. All of my neighbors like the honey gold color and it shows off the natural wood grain

              Beautiful results, easy to apply.
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I had been so upset with the look of my deck the past few years. When I came across Olympic Max Stain and Sealant, I knew the time had come. I set out to tackle the deck myself and figured if I messed up, I'd call someone in to fix my mess. I cleaned the deck first and then applied the Stain. It went on smoothly and easily. It did take two coats to get it to where I liked it but the end results is beautiful. It really looks like a brand new deck. It has water protection so water beads up on the deck but this is great as my wood is protected against rot. Honestly, it is fun to use the blower to blow the water drops off the deck. I really enjoy products that are easy for anyone to use. The redwood color came looks beautiful and not like in the past when I've used a similar product from a different brand that turned my deck red! I highly recommend this product, I am extremely happy with the results and plan to spend lots of time recuperating on my lovely stained deck! Thank you Olympus, you have a winner here!
