We found that this product was the worse that we used. Never again will we use Olympic Semi Transparent Stain on our deck. It lasted for about 2 years....maybe!! It started to wear and then it peeled off. We did everything that they told us to do when we painted it on the deck. Making sure that we followed the instructions to the tee. Well that didn't work and when we contacted Olympic...they said we didn't put it on properly?? I guess when you think that you have the perfect product anything that goes wrong with it is the customers fault. They don't know the saying the customer is right. Well, that will be the last time that we purchase anything Olympic if they treat their customers the way they treated us. We did our deck over this year with a solid stain and WOW all I can say....it is beautiful! Just the way it should be. Everyone who seen it couldn't get over how beautiful it looks now. So save your money and go to your local hardware store and ask the people in the paint department what they put on their decks....that's what we did and we got a great product that I know will last for longer than 2 years without looking like crap!!!
