Reviews
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not the same great product available before VOCs I applied the simi-transparent redwood stain (oil base) around a year ago to half of my redwood deck. Approximately 220 sq ft. It had none of the characteristics of the simi-transparent 717 stain I've used in the 80's into the beginning of the 21st century. It used to have a significant amount of colorant solids that made my deck throughout the decades have an evenly colored apperance, bringing down the darker areas and darkening the lighter areas. If you are used to the pre VOC change product, then you will be completely disappointed. That's why I gave it the lowest stars. If you never have used this product before, you might like it, but only because you haven't experienced the best. I blame this all on the government standards forced opon us. Sorry Olympic, not your fault. My father used it on our house in Portland OR in 1952 so i have a lot of history with this product. Sad...
