    Bought all of the recommended products as well. The product still failed and destroyed the boards. We ended up replacing the deck

    Do you still have the deck?

  5. Susan Carter says:

    I wonder if anyone has filed a lawsuit like this with their other stains. I had an entire new deck rot in two years due to water being trapped under the stain when it peeled up. I’m furious.
    Olympic Maximum solid color stain is what I used. We have had to entirely rebuild our deck. Mind you the front porch hasn’t had this stain and is still perfect after 15 years. I thought I was being proactive.

    ADMIN – Hi Susan,

    Rustoleum had a similar settlement.
