Reviews
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely yellow Purchased this sealant to cover a bench I built. I was very happy with the color of my bench until I applied Olympic maximum "clear" sealant. It could be best described as a honey-mustard color. Will likely take a lot of sanding to re-finish with a better product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Clear I applied this last summer. I had to do it again where it had peeled off my deck flooring. I bought a 5 gallon can stored it in my basement. Went to use it again and couldn't due to the fact it separated. I stirred and shook the bucket but nothing changed. If you by this only get what you need. I only used about 2 gallons before storing and feel like I wasted about 100 dollars due to the fact I could not use it again today. I did purchase a 1 gallon can this time so it would have the same color on the deck.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Clear Like many others (I read this after the fact) this product is NOT clear It turned my beautiful redwood into a honey mustard color. Ive been re-sanding my deck for a second time! Wish I read other reviews but if you have a colored wood you'd like to keep do not use!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clear I have redwood decks on my Idaho home. Heavy snow in winter and intense sun in the summer. My decks were looking rough. I used a wood brightener to clean and get rid of some of the grey staining. After letting things dry for 48 hours, I applied Olympic Maximum Clear Waterproofing Sealant. It went on very nice and really brought out that beautiful redwood color that I have not seen in years. I will have to see how it holds up to a seasonal cycle of winter summer but so far, I really like this stuff. I am going to do some test spots on my cedar sided house. Might just put this stuff on there too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Olympic MAXIMUM Waterproofing Sealant Clear We live in the woods, with large oak trees overhanging our deck. Our deck takes abuse year round from not only rain and sun, but also sap leaves and debris. Olympic MAXIMUM Waterproofing Sealant has kept our deck protected for the last 2+ years with no signs of deterioration. With other products we used in the past, we needed to apply a sealant every year. After 21/2 years water still beads just like it did the day after application. Thanks Olympic!
