      Q:Does ready seal need to be stained or filtered before using in airless paint sprayer?
      by|Dec 31, 2023
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Ready Seal is premixed and ready to go, straight out of the can! Just stir well, insuring that all pigment is disturbed and fully suspended. Also make sure your wood is fully prepared (clean & dry).....and you can immediately stain your project.

          Just buy it!
          Was looking for the most natural finish with the most protection for my cedar deck. Tried 2 other products prior to this. Nothing compares! I'll let the pic speak for itself...

            This is the second time using Ready Seal on my 6 year old deck. It is fool proof and it made my deck look amazing.

              Our old canoe roof soaked up two gallons of this stuff! I hope it protects for years to come!

              Ready Seal stain, love it
              Better than I expected. I used mahogany, had to order more, need slightly more than 1 gallon for my project of one side of a 92’ fence between myself and the neighbor, a gallon got me about 70’ of fence using a brush. It doesn’t smell bad when using either.

                Great stain
                This semi-transparent stain is true to its color. Does not have an orange or yellow tint. Covered very well. Will use again.

                This stain is the best. It really is goof proof and looks beautiful. I applied 7.5 gallons of light oak to my deck (12'x33'). With 100+ heat index, it still went on perfectly. I also like that the smell isn't strong and it's not sticky or leaves stains if it gets on skin.

                I need a lot more! Seals well, goes on easy. Color is way darker than stated, and it's the lightest available. (Yes, I did all the shaking and stirring...)

                We had a new deck built in July and waited until November to stain it. After reading many reviews, I decided to go with Ready Seal. I ordered the sample set of stain colors directly from Ready Seal to choose the right color for us. I checked the moisture content in the wood to be sure it was under 12% before adding the sample stain. After deciding on the Natural, I cleaned the wood with a Clorox solution before staining the whole deck since it was a pressure treated pine. We chose the Natural (Light Oak) stain and are very happy with the color. We put two coats on and it is beautiful; the stain went on so easy! Highly recommend!
