The Best Stain Ever
This is my second time staining my 350 sq fence. I am in a ♿ and it is easy and looks absolutely gorgeous. I sprayed first time and rolled this time. The roll method worked the best and really is goof proof.

Easy application
This is definitely easy to apply but the color is much darker then expected. Especially after applying 2 coats. Even so, I still like the rich color and have no regrets. Here are before and after pics.

Not just for decks and panels
Really was concerned it would cover up the natural beauty of the wood, but it enhanced it! Used a weed sprayer to apply and it went on easily. My spray tip wouldn't cooperate, so it went on thicker than recommended, but the results were perfect.

Amazing!!! Using on our cedar fence too! Applied with roller in undee an hour. Sanded and power washed deck prior to stain. Applied to dry deck.

Expensive but worth the price
2 bucket of 5 gallos for a 141’ x 6.5’ double pass front and 1 pass on the back of the fence I thinks is little expensive but protects our fence for a while

This stuff is great, especially for a novice! I hadn't realized until I got started that all my previous painting was latex. This oil based stain is a bit different. Applying it made me realize I really wasn't that good at it. I used a pump sprayer and had runners every now and then, but the 'goof proof' of this product is real. The stain settled out on its own with no blotches or runs. A tip to newbs like me, with the pump sprayer, it goes on a bit spotty, but will meld together over a short amount of time. If you try to make it even, as I would with a latex paint, it runs like crazy. Also, the coverage guideline was spot on. Used 20 gallons for a 220' fence, covering both sides with just a bit to spare.

Keeps Cedar Looking Great!
I have used the Natural Cedar stain for deck and outdoor projects at my homes for the last 15+ years. I do not like the weathered/grey look of cedar. This stain keeps the color vibrant while protecting the wood. Typically on very exposed surfaces (rain, sun, wind) I do need to power wash and re-stain every 3-5 years. In that respect, it is not a no-maintenance option like composite or vinyl, but I think it's worth it for real wood. The stain applies very easily and you do not have to worry about streaks, drips etc. like you would with typical wood stain. Highly recommended.
