Easy to apply
Best Uses
Holding Town A Tarp
In the fall of 2010, I sanded my pine deck down to bare wood, used the Sherwin pre-treatments, and then applied this solid stain as instructed. By early summer 2011, the deck was peeling, and by early 2013 the deck is peeling on all the boards, and very seriously on the floorboards. Sherwin told me that it was an application error. While that is always possible in theory, I did everything as instructed, and the product did not last. I am in process of having the deck refinished.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
Stain peels after 6 months
Best Uses
Use this product in 2010 and within 4 months is began peeling. I waited over a year and paid a professional to stain it the second time. Same thing happened. Within 6 months the stain started to peel. Sherwin Williams is claiming application error again. The product is horrible
