Great product
Cleaning this 25 year old 1,000 sq.ft. 2x4 treated pine deck that sits under a forest of oaks was the hardest part of the job. It had been neglected for about 8 years. Applying Raincoat with a garden pump sprayer was the easiest job. I sprayed it on liberally, using TWO 5 gallon cans, not one. I had enough left to spray all the railings and spindles as well. The product has been on for 3 weeks and water beads up nicely. However, the "fresh stain" odor is still lingering a bit. I suspect the odor will disappear in a few more days. The wood did darken a bit, but I'm happy with the results.

    Great sealer, easy to apply with a garden sprayer. I had used only this on my 25 year old deck and fence but had trouble finding it for a few years so I had tried some of the "clear" water based sealers. They were terrible - hard to apply and showed wear in high traffic areas. Glad I could get this home delivered from Home Depot.

    Very good quality at an exceptional price.
    I was surprised to find this product for about 70% of the price at my local paint store. There was such a big difference in price that I contacted Rustoleum, who own the Wolman's brand. Rustoleum assured me that it was the exact same product available through Home Depot. For my project, I saved about $90.

      Excellent product. Would highly recommend. Would also recommend doing two coats!! The wood on the deck soaked up the first coat like nothing. The second coat did the trick and it works like a charm.

      Other than a strong odor, this product exceeded my expectations. After about 5 years of neglect, my 20 year old deck is looking good! I love to see the bead.

      Pretty much impossible to rate this until it has been through a year or two of weather I can say that my fence looks better than new. This sealer really brings out the texture of the wood and makes it look great. The fence is 18 years old and was very sunbleached. I power washed it and let it dry for a week before sealing it and the appearance is like new.

      Time will tell how it holds up but product appears to be exactly what I was looking for...decent quality oil based sealer. Application was fairly easy with good flow of product. Leaves wood looking darker and treated as oil is supposed to do.

      Not a lot of oil based options but this seemed to work fairly well. It is clear but did appear to darken the deck wood a bit. Used the same product 2 years ago without powerwashing the deck first and it really darkened it up. Will see if this time is different as 100% of washed and cured for days before application. Would recommend.

      This sealer is very easy to use, sprayed it on with a 2 gal. pump up garden sprayer. Soaked into the wood well, and gave the cedar a nice finish. Calculations for coverage were off, needed twice as much as I figured (6 cans instead of 3). Overall, worth the cost (so far). Beads water off nicely, hoping the UV protection is good. Time will tell.

      We have a 15 year plus old PT deck for the railings with Tex caps and on the deck itself. We pressure washed the railings and used the clear coat. Nice to apply though not sure of what happens if you over apply. We coated the railings and we liked the results. I also coated 6x6s on the border for my shed. Very happy with this purchase and highly recommend using it. Nice clear finish.
