Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wenge - too hot and blotchy. I bought this stain to stain my fence and deck. I purchased a total of 40 gallons of stain. I was under the impression that the floor would be cooler than it is.. Very hot to the touch and not ideal for a swimming pool deck. The stain also looks blotchy. The deck has been pressure washed and it was a warm day (not hot). Not pleased at all. We were told to apply with a brush which is what we did, but looks terrible. Spent way too much money on this deck and now it looks awful.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor coverage Overpriced and lasted one season. Had to apply two coats. Lasted on deck where it was covered. Did not where it wasn’t

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Looked good for 3 weeks-now awful I used this on a new deck. I wanted this done right so though I could DIY the project, I hired professional painters to prep and stain. We followed everything direction and recommendation to a T. It went on great and looked beautiful. Within a couple of weeks, the water stopped beading. Now, nine months later, the end of each plank is peeling, and I can’t get it clean no matter how hard I scrub, or which cleaner I use. It’s a dark brown - wenge - now covered with gray dirt. This new porch deck was a huge project and nine months later I am reading that I have to strip this stain and start again. Choosing this was a huge mistake.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lasts 1 Year at Best I bought this October 2016. In less than a year, the stain was blackening, greening, and chipping. I powerwashed it yesterday, and the stain came off with the algae. I only have a 1600 PS electric powerwasher and did not use it close to the deck. You can see where our grill was the staining is perfect, this stuff just doesn't hold up at all. Definitely not a "lifetime guarantee". This stuff is disappointing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible stain Couldn't be less satisfied. Followed the directions to the T. Used the correct stripper and brightener. Applied as directed and in the correct temperature range. One year later it looks like a 5 year old stained it, with chips and peels everywhere. Avoid at all costs!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Looks good but.... I bought Olympic Elite at $43 a gallon expecting a great product. After 14 gallons(three times what the coverage said) I'm disappointed. The first time it rained there was absolutely no water beading. It looks great but I guess I will have to buy even more for any protection. I wish I had went with another product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Coverage We bought this to stain the outside cedar siding on our house we purchased. The previous owners had let it deteriorate and had used a complicated 3 step process. The Olympic Elite Advanced cut it down to one coat/application to bring back the beauty of the house.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fall Foliage Semi-Transparent In 2015 we applied fall foliage semi-transparent stain to our new pine logs. We loved it!! Now 2 years later, the ends that are exposed to weather have turned almost black. We've tried power washing and using chemicals to get it to come clean and we aren't having much luck. On the logs that we were able to get clean, we have reapplied a coat of the same stain and it is about 10 times darker. Not sure why. With the expense of the product, we expected it to maintain it's color for more than 2 years. It started turning after only one year. Very unfortunate because we really did like the color when it first went on.
