I purchased the Thompson Red Sequoia from HD for my fence, then later had to replace a few slats, but HD no longer carried the Thompson, so had to get the Olympic. Same color, but it didn't match, may have to apply several coats to try to match it.

Three coats didn't make it one winter
I put three coats on my deck of this at the end of fall. I scrubbed it down with a deck cleaner beforehand and gave it plenty of time to dry. Now the next spring it's already chipping everywhere. I'm going to have to paint it again which is ridiculous because I spent so much time doing it last year. Horrible product.

    It made made fence look great. It still allowed me to see the natural characteristics of the wood and gave it a nice stain of red. The product also went a long way. It took me like 7 gallons to cover darn near 200 ft.
