I replaced my old deck boards after 30+ years in 2016. Most years, I used Thompson Water Seal to treat the deck. In 2016 I installed all new "Cedar Tone" deck boards. I planned to allow the new boards to cure for a year and to seal them this year. While at my local paint & carpet store, Strands, they were demonstrating Ready Seal and I purchased 2 gallons.I did my deck and the treated material around the egress window and it looks great. The product went on as described and after first rain water beaded up. Moving patio chairs and table around on deck was a breeze without any noticeable marring of deck.I have a 30 year old elevated play house which I will power wash and treat next.Great product, I am a customer for life!
