ReadySeal wood stain and sealer contains all the essential elements of a quality coating for exterior wood projects. Ease of application was in mind throughout the formulation of ReadySeal to ensure all consumers a hassle-free application, saving time for the contractor and promising a Goof-Proof process for homeowners.
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.
