Read reviews, used Natural Cedar and on an old cedar slat fence after pressure washing. Tried different roller thicknesses and the 1-1/4" was the one that worked best, runs and overlaps are invisible. It didn't cover as much area as advertised on old wood but the stain looks good and keeps hoa off my case.
Easy Instructions, Easy to Apply, Even Application
After three years my deck still looks new. You cannot make a mistake applying Ready Seal, I think I may let my Labrador Retriever do it next time. Great product, Ready Seal is all I will ever use for exterior stain/sealer. Thanks Ready Seal.

can't think of any.
This stuff is not cheap, but it is worth it. Goes on easily, looks great, and is very forgiving; if you make mistakes they don't show. Only downside is for HD. The coverage listed is 800 sq ft per gallon, my experience was 125, and that is what the manufacturer stated on the product. So be aware that you might need more than you think, but it's worth it to have the best looking fence in town.

We put this stain on my back deck and it was easy working with it. Did put two coats on the floor, but since the stain soaked into the wood well, we needed only one coat for the railings. Used the 5 gallons for 400 sqf.
Very satisfied so far. After the rain the water beaded up very well.

I finally found the right stain! I had previously stained a new deck (after aging for 9 months) that sits in full sun all day long with Olympic’s top stain. Within 6 months it was starting to peel/chip and within 17 months it was a complete disaster. After power washing to remove most of the remaining stain and then sanding the entire deck, I was determined not to be doing it again in less than 2 years. After searching multiple websites and reading hundreds of reviews, I decided to give Ready Seal a try. What a positive difference. The stain was extremely simple to apply and very forgiving, no wet on wet application required. You could literally see the stain soak in so you know it penetrated...should solve the peeling stain dilemma. I applied 2 coats using a brush for most areas and a pad for the floor boards. As the reviews stated, the color of the deck has lightened over the first couple of weeks. It looks phenomenal, my next door neighbor has already asked what I used because he now wants to use it. My initial review of this product is all very positive. I would buy it again without hesitation. The only unanswered question at this point is how it wears. Now if we could only get Home Depot to stock it so you don’t have to special order it.
I was looking for a product that was easy to use and did not have to be reapplied yearly. This product exceeded my expectations. It is very used friendly - if you drip it does not show, it goes on easily, and it soaks into the wood giving it a waterproof barrier. It does not have be be reapplied for 2 to 3 years. The only negative about this product is the plastic ring that is on the can when it is shipped. It is very difficult to remove. I absolutely love this product!!! I even used it on my outdoor wood furniture. It brings out the grain of the wood beautifully.

Easy application, great color, wood just drinks it up. Only complaint is I ran out too soon before 1st coat was complete. Staining 225' of split rail. Should have been enough to complete. All aces other than that.
