I just finished three weekends of staining decks, stairs, and a big lake dock - using 50 gallons in all. Ready Seal is incredible stuff. Easy to apply, levels out for an even finish even if you spray too much in one area. I had to use two coats everywhere but the second coat could be applied soon after the first coat. I rarely write reviews but I had to submit one for this product because I am so pleased with the finished product. If you are considering a deck stain and sealer, look no further. You will not be disappointed.
