It's easy to apply, the wood loves it, cleans easily and looks amazing. I used it on a shou Sugi ban /charred wood cedar siding that had bleached out a bit on the south side and didn't on the north side of our house. I used the black on the south side to get it back to the dark and it looks great. I used the transparent on the north side and it looks fantastic. Rich and beautiful texture and grain showing through on the north side. I wish that I had it when we installed the siding.
Using the wood cream on a pressure treated outdoor patio railing was a breeze. The wood cream went on effortlessly and covered in a single coat. To my surprise, the finish beads water like a freshly waxed car finish. Obviously time will tell how long this finish performs, but my initial impression is outstanding.
