Guess no one here has used it, Gwen? Are there any reviews on the HD site?

I will say that for solid color stain, "Flood" makes a great one, at least I have gotten great results, (on vertical surfaces especially). Does not last as long on horizontal, maybe 4-5 years as opposed to 15 on fences and walls.

I'm a big fan of Wolmans Deck Bright for cleaning and prepping the deck. Then I like to use Wolman's F&P to finish the deck. It's a nice transparent finish that comes in a few different tints. Ive never been a big fan of solid color staining on decks. This Wolman product brings out the the characters in the wood opposed to hiding them under a solid color. Makes for easier maintenance and finishing every few years too.
