Q:I'm confused by the responses about staining a new yellow pine pressure treated deck. How long should I wait before applying the Ready Seal natural light oak stain? Should I treat with 25% bleach solution first?
by|May 26, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Your wood only needs to be dry to 12% moisture content, (per pronged moisture meter reading) in order for Ready Seal to be applied. The bleach solution is only recommended for new smooth milled woods or oxidized wood. New Rough cut wood does not require any preparation.

    Q:Natural - light oak looks really dark after first application on a brand new fence. Will it lighten to the “natural” lighter color? It almost looks more like the pecan color. Is it possible the wrong label got put on the can?
    by|May 25, 2024
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Ready Seal can vary in penetration depth, based on your wood species, age, and condition. This can make a tone look lighter, or darker than the depicted tone of your choice. Ready Seal will lighten, as it slowly dries, over 7 to 14 days. Please feel free to contact Ready Seal for more detailed information.

          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!
