This stuff is awesome. It spreads itself. And it’s true, there is no overlap marks showing and no back brushing. Just spread it on and it spreads to where it is needed. The easiest stain/sealer I have ever worked with. And you can walk on it in an hour. I used it on two large porches that were built 2 years ago and ready for sealer. And I had them both done in 2 days. I used the Golden Pine stain and the treated wood was back to its natural color. I am very pleased.
