This is a very good protection for new fence boards. But you must follow directions, I found that you need to buy it early. I turned cab upside down over night. Then every time you use more from can you must shake it up. It took two coats to cover and looks very nice!

I've used Olympic stains in the past and the high quality is consistent. It is easy to apply and clean up. This stain makes the wood look like real redwood without looking artifical. It looks beautiful and brings out the wood grains. I highly recommend it

I followed the instructions exactly and it did NOT stain my deck even the least bit red! It definitely had the red pigment in it, however I don’t have the slightest clue why my deck didn’t pick the color up at all. I was expecting a gorgeous red tinted deck and all I did was waste 7 hours of my time

    I had a difficult time getting this to mix, despite a good deal of stirring and shaking. It went on fairly easily, but as I moved through the process it got progressively darker as a result. It did have rain water bead up with a boat load of rain two days after it was applied; so it is doing what I needed. It just darkens as you go off the deck and down the stops.

    Stain was far too red and not at all like a Sequoia. Photo on the can was not representative of the result.

    It made made fence look great. It still allowed me to see the natural characteristics of the wood and gave it a nice stain of red. The product also went a long way. It took me like 7 gallons to cover darn near 200 ft.
