Thompson's Waterproofing Stain Review

This product looks like pink paint. Even when applying, it still looks slightly pink tinted.  Though it held its color pretty well, the peeling that we saw, in our 14 moth weathering test, was severe.

    I have used this brand of thing many times and has never failed me or let me down. It has always performed above beyond my expectations and made what I was doing look great. Thanks for a great product.

    + PROS: Again this product makes my jobs look professional and I will always use this product. I'm getting ready to make to build a porch swing for my wife and I will be using this product again.

    I Guess like many first time home owners, I wanted to do the best I could, so I chose Thompson’s for an initial deck treatment. I brushed it on according to the instructions and it was easily penetrated but time consuming. I was really pleased with the finish. It held up well the first and second year. Third year, not so, but I understand that it is normal. I am hoping to find a longer lasting solution.

    + PROS: Performed as advertised
    - CONS: Hoped it would last longer than 3 years

    Don’t waste your money on Thompson sealers they don’t work. First rain and starts coming off.

    + PROS: Stuff is worthless. First time it rained it started peeling off. Have to do everything all over with something that works. Don't waste your money on any Thompson products.
    - CONS: It simply DOESN'T WORK.
