I was one of the early respondents in this thread long ago and my attention has been re=directed here.
I am truly surprised to see so much complaint on this product. Iam a contractor in Maine and have used it a few times. None of the decks I used it on have problems and after reading all this, I walked out to my shop and took a look at a sample I have had there, laying in the damp ground for years now, and at a piece that had been left over on the rack outside in a location where I almost would expect mold in this climate.
Neither have any mold problem. There is some mildew spotting as I would expect. I dug and scraped at the material to see if there was any penetration of the product. There is none. The spots are ALL on the SURFACE and clean right off.
In my opinion, this is a normal cleaning situation and nothing to do with maintainance or product failure.
I have heard in this whole thread no description of anything other than the same SURFACE problems. If anyone can post a photo of actrual mold penetrating or emanating from within the product, I would be very interested to see it, but so far, the descriptions here are of a surface that simply needs normal cleaning
Excellence is its own reward!
