I love the product, but when I buy a 2nd gallon, I expect it to match in color to the previous one. I brought a photo of the label to the store to assure this, but that didn't help much as the new gallon has a lot more brown in it than my original gray.

DISAPPOINTED!!
Followed the recommended procedures to the letter. Applied the product 8 days ago and it is very tacky. Assumed it would dry completely after 3-4 days but it hasn't.

        I used the higher grade Elite on another project and choose it over the lesser cost one which is also great for a redue of a larger deck.It appears to have a little more substance and a light sheen.A little more drying time and slightly tacky for a day or or two but makes everything look like new and fresh.

              This stain is amazing. We used it on docks and decks in New Bern, NC where it is very hot and humid . It went underwater through hurricane Florence and continued to look great! Just used it on our decks in the mountains. Goes on great!

                  Love the Olympic elite stain. Bought the white and had the nice employee in the paint department make it a very light gray. Looks great getting lots of nice compliments.

                  A number of years ago I used the product Deckover. Prior to that time I sealed my decks and Pier with sealer type products. I was always disappointed with these products as they only lasted one year at best, before needing to be redone. Deckover was substantially better than that, but only gave me three years of use before it began peeling! This past year I had to re-sand all my decks and the pier to remove the Deckover and replace it with what I hoped to be a better product. I chose two Home Depot products to use; "Porch and Patio" paint and the "Olympic Elite stain in a solid color!" The Porch and Patio Paint I used on the Benches on our decks and the Olympic Stain on the actual decking and pier. Obviously, I cannot comment on the durability of either product since it has only been in use for several months! However within that time I have not seen any surface deterioration or uneven wear! The Olympic Elite was the easiest product to apply! As advised by a Home Depot paint specialist I only used their "Pads" for the application...went on extremely smoothly. Clean up was reasonably easy since the stain is water based! I used fewer pads than I had initially anticipated! For ease of installation I would really want to give the product a 10 instead of just a 5!

                  Did an excellent job. I used their oil based stain in the past and was reluctant to use a water based stain but wanted the same finish. Home Depot only carried water based. Gave it a try.... Glad I did.

                  As far as a protective stain I'm sure it will be adequate. However, we chose the hemp color solid stain and it came out much lighter than the swatch. Not the end of the world, but not satisfied.

                  Horrible! Do not purchase this product!
                  We used this product to stain our deck last spring. Our deck is now destroyed! The product is peeling and the wood is splitting! We waited one year to apply any type of stain and followed their instructions to a T. We have a very large deck and spent a lot of money on this product. Now we have a two year old deck that looks 10 years old and with the cost of lumbar there’s no way we can replace the boards at this time! We are highly disappointed!

                  Hi there, we are so sorry to hear about this. There are two things that often cause stain to peel -- applying too many coats or the surface was not porous enough to accept stain. Always make sure the previous stain/paint has been safely removed from the surface in order to let our stain penetrate in. We would like to further discuss this with you, so please give us a call at 1-800-426-6306 between 8am-5pm ET at your convenience.

                    Not a good product for the money
                    Semi-transparent has terrible coverage. streaky looking and flashes dull /shiny on deck surfaces. Not a good product. Solid stain is more like paint..Too heavily bodied

                      Good coverage with very low odor. The labeling information indicates it can be applied to damp wood. However I would avoid this as it did bubble and requires several days to harden. Overall it appears to be a good product but I’ll have to wait to see how it stands up to light traffic on my deck.

                      2 trys and it got worse
                      I bought the elite woodland oil in 2019 because i believed it was the best. I cleaned and applied as per directions on can. Following spring i went to clean with a low pressure pressure washer and 99% came off in lil flakes. Called and after some troubles they did replace my product. So i sanded the rebad spots and then cleaned again. Splashed test and everything im supposed to do. Just the other day i come out to clean because of mold/algee. Looked great and i was happy when wet. Came home 4 hrs later and it looked terrible. Not even sure what todo now except deal with it and try another product of close color. I DO NOT RECOMMEND!!!
