Flood CWF5 Oil Stain Scores (1-10)
Appearance After Initial Stain Application: 8
– The Flood CWF-UV5 had a nice rich color when applied to the ACQ Pine decking. Golden with a hint of orange color. Knots were a little lighter in color than the rest of the deck but, that is normal for a true oil based stain. Grain was highlighted well.
Preventing UV Graying at 2 Year Mark: 7
– Color retention was decent. Flooring lost about 30% color, but railings retained much of the original color.
Wear/Tear and Peeling: 7
– No peeling, but there was wearing around the high traffic areas.
