Kona Brown
We used Kona brown woodland oil. It came out way darker and more red then expected. Also, don't paint over and area more then once or it will be splotchy.

    Kona brown
    Love the color. Exactly what I wanted. Because it was applied to a mix of old and new PT wood, it looks slightly different including where the roller overlapped. Will this card or can I put on a second coat in a week? Will the first coat repel the second? Many thanks!

    Hi Ethan, Your deck looks great thanks for sharing a picture of your OLYMPIC® project with us. You are correct that the first coat would repel the second coat as this product is a stain + sealant in one therefore a second coat would not be able to penetrate the surface. If you would like you can speak directly to one of our technical specialists at techservice@ppg.com or at 1-800-426-6306 between 9am-5pm EST.

      Woodland oil mountain cedar
      Terrible experience. I Stained a new cedar deck last season. It was sanded and cleaned with olympic light deck cleaner for cedar. One year later we have sections with faded or peeling stain. There are also some areas which were scratched. We tried to touch up scratched areas but the stain accentuates any issues we have. We wanted to just re-stain over existing but I think we will need to re sand and restain the entire deck from scratch! I also recall when applying last year that the stain did not penetrate evenly. It was difficult to apply. I should have gone with a low pigment stain.

        Olympic Elite Woodland Oil Mahogany Blaze
        It is an EXCELLENT oil based stain. We used the Olympic Elite Woodland Oil Mahogany Blaze on a yard bench I refurbished and it came out AWESOME! Well, see for yourself in the pic in include. It's been through many rain storms since and held up as good as the day we stained it. Would unequivocally recommend to anyone. We will not hesitate to use this product again!!!!!

          Butternut Latex Solid Maximum base 2 sealer
          I have used Cabot deck stains for over 7 years. I have always prepped my deck by pressure washing the loose paint and let dry for 24 hrs. Lowes no longer carries Cabot, and was told the next best thing was Olympic. I pressure washed, then began staining the next day. I applied 2 coats, with about an hour of drying inbetween. Now the surface is BUBBLING and CHIPPING off. Extremely disappointed, as I have to dedicate ANOTHER weekend to painting my deck. I will be writing to techsupport to file my claim, and will make sure to use a new product. Apparently this product only works for NEW decks!

            It was different than what I purchased before. We were able to spray paint it before. This came thicker and had to be hand painted.

            The color batch was a different number so I was surprised that it didn’t match exactly with what I had purchased from my local Home Depot

            Excellent stain with reddish hue. One thing one needs to watch in application is that overlapping marks become apparent when the stain is dry due to its transparency. To avoid this, long, random length strokes are recommended.

            The 1gal Olympic Elite was pricey but held up well over the first couple years. We had used another product on our new deck but weren't satisfied with it so we sanded it off and applied the Olympic instead.

            I have used this product on other outdoor projects before with excellent results, and will be using this on a fence to match my other projects and to give the fence new life.

            I applied it to my outdoor fence and it looks and works great. I’m looking to protect my fence for a long time. So far the water rolls right off.

            I’ve been using this stain for many years to maintain a cedar deck. I’ve tried other brands, but Olympic Elite is definitely the best I’ve used. Application and cleanup is easy and it holds well.

            The color is great, but it takes 2 good coats to deal with the cedar knots that continue to show through. The knots show up as white blotches until treated with the 2nd coat. Also, remembering that this product is oil based and is messy to clean up. Mineral Oil and Brush Cleaner will be necessary to clean brushes, roller pans and smaller stain holding containers. But it is worth the effort to help protect the wood on the fence in this climate.

            Confusing label
            Ive bought the oil base for several years now, great product. This product is water-based. The labels on the can on the oil base and the water base both are identical. Read the back one says oil-based and one says water-based but there's nothing on the front of this that says water-based. I went online and ordered what I thought I'd been ordering forever. $534 later I get it back to the shop and realize that it's water-based. Olympic needs to address this for the customer.
