by|Apr 15, 2024

A:  Ready seal is best stored in above 50 degree temps, in a repackaged can, as close to the top of the can as possible, void of air, and occasionally stirred.

    Q:Can this stain be used on a greenhouse and raised vegetable garden? Also, will the stain leak into raised beds over time?
    by|Mar 4, 2023
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Once Ready Seal is dried (2 to 14 days, depending on drying conditions), it will work wonderfully in any greenhouse, or raised bed scenario, and will not leach into your beds.

      Q:how is this stain comparable to Superdeck redwood transparent stain that you can't buy any longer? Can I stain over Superdeck? Ducksback
      by|Sep 5, 2022
      3 Answers
      Answer This Question

      A:  I would not. If you currently have a stain on your deck, it should be removed first. This product is a preservative, not just a stain. It soaks into the wood and will literally replace the moisture that the wood has lost. It is by far the best product on the market. I have ten year old decks that literally look brand new by power washing yearly and putting a coat of this every one to two years depending on use.  

      by|Sep 11, 2022

        A:  Ready Seal is a penetrating pariffin oil and cannot be used over any other stain.

        by|Sep 6, 2022

          A:  Contact Ready Seal to get the best response. Also, their web page has a good FAQ on applying over previous coatings.

            Answer This Question

            A:  I have not used it for that purpose but I see no reason why you couldn't. It drys fast with a nice seal to protect your wood surface.

            by|Aug 27, 2021

              A:  yes

              by|Aug 28, 2021

                A:  Yes, Ready Seal can be used on wood furniture of any kind.

                  The product worked as advertised. No lap marks at all. Used this product on 15+ year old redwood furniture after cleaning (four pieces used 1/2 gallon). As directed, go with two light coats. If the coats are too heavy, it will take a long time to absorb into the wood. Just follow the directions. The product was applied about three weeks ago and the furniture looks like new. I had let the furniture weather to a gray, brown, black and green color. What I thought was gray was actually dirt. The cleaning opened the wood pores and ReadySeal did the rest.

                  The color was washed out and nowhere near the advertised color. I had to return for refund.

                  Great stain
                  I didn't like my old wood stain "Behr" it faded so fast and didn't protect the wood. I cleaned the old stain with just dish soap and water using a stiff broom, let it dry. I can't use any chemicals because my deck is build on a rubber roof. I love the final look of my deck now. Time will tell how long it will last. I used Redwood color

                      Being "goof proof" helps as I didn't read the directions and went heavy on the first and second coats of stain. It still came out looking perfect and this will be my "go to" stain going forward. This review was written 2 months after applying it and it still looks great after a lot of wet weather here in the Northeast.

                      Very unhappy with this product. Pressure washed and used deck cleaner on my pine deck. Then applied notready seal redwood to the boards. Looked great for a month, but the color and water resistance has faded ever since. Nine month later 90% of the color is gone and all of the water resistance is gone. I have contacted their customer service but have not heard back. I do not recommend this product.

                        great color
                        the stain went on easy and looks great. We just applied it so I can't comment on the longevity of the protect yet. I used the redwood stain on redwood fence panels I got from home depot.
