I can’t begin to sing enough praises about your beautiful stain. It’s everything you advertised. It went on smooth, no lap marks, repels water, and after drying, it looked amazing and I couldn’t be happier. I did my research trying to find a better stain to work with as I’ve stained many decks in my lifetime with so-so results and constant upkeep. (BTW... I’m a 68 years old woman). I’m so glad I found this product. My porch is beautiful. Thanks so much!
