We went with Ready Seal in the redwood color, the fact that we can reapply with no sanding or stripping was the biggest selling point. Also, the ease of application and the beautiful color provided us with amazing results. I can't recommend Ready Seal highly enough. "We searched for someone to stain the fence at our new home when we moved to Texas in 1998, and found someone who used Ready Seal. It looked amazing. Our fence outlasted fences built years after ours in the still-growing subdivision, and still looked fantastic. We moved to a new home in 2009 and again chose Ready Seal for our new fence. Happily, our fence looks far better than many in the upscale neighborhood. We absolutely LOVE this product. When you spend a lot of money on a beautiful wooden fence, you must protect your investment with this product."
