Went on as expected but only time will tell if it protects which is the primary reason I purchased. Brushed on PT wood posts and rails of fence prior to installation. Brushing was easy with 5" deck brush but a half acre of rough fencing wood still took a good amount of time. I think a second coat would give a blacker appearance but also probably unnecessary since the wood is new pressure treated and I'm worn out from one coat and color is still nice. Posts are closer to black but rails are more of a dark weathered charcoal/brown. Raw pressure treated wood is ugly so definitely better than that but may reapply in future if I decide I want rails blacker. Four stars because I don't know yet if it will protect and I had hoped it was a little more black.

I purchased the case of CreoCoat (4 cans). Each can is .88 of a gallon - NOT 1 U.S. Gallon as shown in the picture. It still costs $143.87 for 4 cans, even though you'll be getting almost half of a gallon less. I gave it an "Average" rating as I have to wait and see how long it works!

    Though the product is adequate it would be a lot more effective if it was thicker (more of a molasses consistency).

    Oh no, we can help, Mike. Make sure to apply the Rust-Oleum Wolman WoodLife CreoCoat only when the air (ambient) temperature is between 50-90°F, the relative humidity is below 85%, and when no precipitation is expected within 24 hours. Use full strength and do not thin the product. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 5 Rustoleum

      Painted one fence panel to make sure we liked it before moving on to the rest of the fence. It was faded by the next weekend. Faded as in “almost couldn’t tell I painted it” faded .Ended up just going with asphalt fence paint .

      That's odd, Chris! When applied properly, Rust-Oleum Wolman CreoCoat Black Wood Preservative will impart a solid black finish when applied as directed. Please keep in mind, surface prep is different depending on the condition of the wood.

      Easy to apply with roller. We couldn't be happier. House we built was 20 years old and had neglected railroad ties. This product brought them back to life. Amazing.
