Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great color, poor durability We used this product on our new deck after ample drying time. Looked amazing for about 6 months and then began to fade rapidly and come off in places. Very disappointed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful color... not so beautiful outcome I used the Olympic deck cleaner, I scrubbed the deck like the directions said, I used the solid stain Olympic Elite, and within 3 weeks I see it peeling off. Very sad. I had high hopes.. I followed directions. And now I’m out money and time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Overpriced bad product! would give a ZERO star We built a screen-porch/deck and purchased 3 gallons of Olympic Elite Stain from Lowe's. I am HORRIBLY DISAPPOINTED with this stain! We spent a lot of money on this and it is supposed to last years NOT months!!! We completed our porch/deck in April and today is June 1st and it is already wearing off!!! I cannot believe all the money and work and it lasted a couple months. Shame on you Olympic for selling a bad product. We used Home Depot product on our front deck and have had no problems at all with that one. I have pictures of the build with dates along with receipts to show, we used new wood so don't blame the wood either. you just have a bad product and i would NOT recommend it to ANYONE!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Peeling and Bubbling After a Day I stained my patio set with this "stain" yesterday. Like the other 1-star reviews here (oh, how I wish I'd read them before purchasing), today it is bubbling and peeling in various spots. I'm not sure how they can call this is a stain when it really goes on (and comes off!) semi-gloss latex paint. So after years of maintaining my patio furniture, it turns out it just took one gallon of this stain to destroy all of my efforts. Returning the remaining stain to Lowe's for a refund and then going to search for an all new patio set. Absolutely unreal. Bottom line: spend $30-some on this stain and be prepared to replace your entire patio set, or spend the rest of your summer sanding and chipping away the "stain" so you can redo it with another brand. Beyond disappointed. Heartbroken really.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 4 years on old weathered wood in the NE-not bad! We bought a townhouse with an old deck that had an addition (different woods) and they never stained any of it. We went with the Elite solid stain and it lasted a solid 4 years. (Washed/Hand Sanded/Brush Painted Only) We are on year 5 and I'm about to stain it again with more of the same. The walking area is what took on the most damage, the sides are still great. We did grey on the deck and dark blue on the rails. The grey faded nice but I wasn't a fan of the dark blue fade so we got black this time. We're planning on doing our fence the same. For a budget, I'm glad we went with the Elite.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The Jury is still out I used the opaque stain on wood. It goes on very well with a brush. Hiding background variations was terrific. Clean up easy. The problem is after a week, it is till not dry. This is a combination of drying outside in the sun and in the house. Should be ideal conditions. The surface is tacky. If two painted pieces come in contact with each other they will stick together. This is enough of a problem to try all competitive brands before buying this product again. Way too expensive for a major problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mahogany Easy to use, rich color, durability and good value. Durability is essential, as the previous original stain came of from using a cleaning product
