    I have used it two times now with a deckster sprayer I bought used from a guy on Grimescene. If there is a product any easier to use, I would love to see it.

    Ready Seal is great. We get ours from Sunbrite Supply. You can not screw it up. Even if it dries before you are done there will not be any lap marks. Sprays very easy.

    Tried just about everything under the sun, when it comes to stain. Settled on RS and haven't looked back. Great product, easy to apply, and easy to maintain. Many tout the wonders of new products, but I love the fact that I can count on this to perform as advertised. We use this product almost exclusively.

    I don't do a lot of wood but most of the wood I have done I used RS on. I like the product. It is almost completely idiot proof.

    Is Ready Seal Film Forming , or does it sink/absorb into the wood rather then staying on top? How long do you tell customers that it will last before you will have to come back and do it again?

    Is Ready Seal Film Forming
    No. RS is a VOC compliant penetrating oil. Leaves no drip marks, no streaks, no stop and start marks. Maintenance is variable due to the exposure the deck gets. Most go 2 years, some every year, some three or more.

    I like Ready Seal, Ron. I use quit a bit of it.

    I wish there was a distributor closer than 20 miles away, but it is worth the drive because it is a good product.

    No. I buy from Sunbrite Supply in GA, or from Ready Seal directly.

    Yes you can. Just call sunbrite or readyseal. Warning though the sample boards suck. Make your own.

    I love love love Ready Seal. Word of caution though, more than any other stain I've seen Ready Seal will let the character of the wood shine through. Most clients like it, but occasionally I'll get some complaints about how the knots and different wood color changes the final appearance. This is worst right away and generally evens out a little after a week or so.

    Cons: Its a two coat product.
    Atomizes pretty easy so I have problem with "cloud drift" on windy days despite plastic and canvas.

    Pros: can get rained on after an hour.
    Even tho its oil based, it cleans up real easy with soap and water (WAY easier than DEFY water based stain)
    Its pretty cheap
    Maintenance is super easy (clean, dry, reapply)

    Although we don't do a whole lot of decks anymore I did a test and it lasted about 6-9 months in a wet climate before it started to mold. Seems easy to use and smells better than most. Most of the time we used Penofin because of availability and ease of use, it seemed to last a bit longer than ready seal.

    Honestly if I had a way to get it easier I would have probably used it more. I ran a 8 month test, if you do a search for ready seal vs penofin on google you can see my post, although I am not going to hotlink on Ron's board.

    Because of all the acrylic in some stains it has made stripping troublesome and we have since slowed our deck restoration side of the company.

    Easy to apply
    Great people and company to deal with
    Reasonably priced
    easy maintenance
    nice colors
    It really is stupid proof
    Lazy mans stain

    Con's
    Durability
    Consistancy in finished product (new vs old decks)
    Coverage per Sq Ft Low (75)

    In a nutshell I used it for a few years but needed a higher end finish for our business model. For the average contractor it's a great product. For me personally it's the Chevy or GMC when we needed the Cadillac.
