Time will Tell
I used this product Q8 on two decks of a home I recently purchased with 2 IPE hardwood decks. After a thorough cleaning we applied one coat with a intended follow up coat in the spring. This product is very easy to work with without the issue of lap marks so you can enhance the wood grains and color of your decking with breath taking results. I am very pleased with the results, time will tell how durable and protectant this product will be but at firs blush I am very happy.
