Penofin Ultra Red Label Wood Stain Scores (1-10)
Appearance After Initial Stain Application: 10
The cedar color on the cedar wood is one of our favorite tints. It does not add to much “orange” as some of the other decking stains we have tested. In our opinion, Penofin stains give one of the best finished appearances to wood once dry.
Preventing UV Graying at 2 Year Mark: 5
The Penofin Red Label had lost about 50% of the tint. This was hard to tell as the majority of the stained had blackened in color. The areas that had not darkened (rails and other verticals) showed the most fading.
Wear/Tear and Peeling: 8
Penofin has always had great penetration abilities. This is one of the best characteristics of their stains. Only wearing that showed was water drainage from the gutters above.
