Ready Seal Stain Review

Stain looked good after initial application. Ready Seal has good penetration and applies easily. The product has a very strong odor, would not recommend if the user is sensitive to smells. After 14 months of weathering the product has completely weathered away. The test board has darkened significantly and small black spots of what appear to be mold have shown up. Bottom line: although this was one of the cheaper stains on the market, unless you want to clean, brighten and stain your deck every year, stay away from Ready Seal.

    Ready Seal is very easy to apply and that is the only good quality that it has. The stain does not dry and tracks on carpet and rubs off on clothes. Lost all color in 9-12 months. Very poor UV resistance as it was gone in less than a year.
