Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible product We applied this product last year and its already peeling off after winter and looks terrible . So awful disappointed and so much wasted money on my 900 square foot deck and so much rework needed . This product is suppose to be clear but has a tan / yellowish finish . Will never buy this product ever again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent coverage. I bought the Maximum Waterproofing Sealant from my local hardware store. I used it on my beautiful wood furnished gazebo. I notice my gazebo was looking very dull with so much rain in the forecast lately. My family and I used the sealant on it. It really made it look brand new and extra inviting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Use I used the Clear Olympic Maximum Waterproofing Sealant to stain over the top of my wooden swing. I had stained it last year, but I wanted to freshen it up, so I went with the clear sealant. It was easy to mix and easy to apply, there was no dripping. It dried evenly and preserved the solid stain I had done last year.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use! Looks great! I used the Olympic maximum waterproofing sealant to seal my back deck and the results were amazing! This sealant was easy to apply and after it dried my deck looked almost brand new. It did not leave a sticky film layer like I have experienced in the past. I was very happy with this product and will be using this brand again in the future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Glides on well Purchase this to refinish a few items we keep outside that's made of wood (swing set, decor, etc.). Did 2 coats as a precaution but worked well. Dried quicker than expected especially since we had a temperature drop the next day.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Strange discolorations occurred after first rain I purchased this product along with a do-it-yourself picnic table kit. First I washed all the individual pieces with Olympic Premium Deck Clear, then rinsed thoroughly and let dry, then did a light orbital sanding, then rinsed again and let dry. Then I applied this Maximum Waterproofing Sealant product. I let the sealer dry for a day, then assembled the table. Initially, everything looked great. There was an amber color to the sealer (which you can see in the third picture with the table upside down), but it had a nice warm look to it. However, after it rained one evening, strange discolorations appeared on the table when it dried. They don't rub off or wash off. I don't know what they're from. They happened at various places around the tabletop and seats, so it wasn't specific to one particular piece of wood. I saw other references to this discoloration in product reviews on the Lowes website and I was going to reference them here, but Lowes discontinued the product and now those reviews are gone. Frustrating. I guess I'll be sanding it down and doing it again with another product.
