Wolman DuraStain Stain Review

Wolman’s DuraStain looked terrible when applying. It literally looks like orange paint. The product also has a strong odor. Initial appearance is not really a semi-transparent look, but more “thin paint” semi-opaque, hides quite a bit of the look and grain of the wood. 14 month weathering did show good results in maintaining color and appearance and this would be expected based on the paint-like consistency of the product. Bottom line, the results were disappointing for a stain that has 6 year guaranteed performance on decks.
