Rated 3 out of 5 by DHToronto from Passable I decided to try this since it was on sale. The stain came out pretty slow even at the max setting so I found myself pressing the trigger constantly, and even just pre-dripping stain onto the boards using the tool before actually running the pad over it. However, I was able to finish a very large deck and clean it afterwards. I want to use this again in a few years. My biggest problem was getting the stain into the container. It has a large opening but I was pouring from a big bucket because I had mixed 4 gallons of stain together. I ended up using a cup to fill it. This is also good because it has a better chance of evening spreading the stain over a long board than using a big stain brush.

Rated 2 out of 5 by DebbieKK from Defective It worked nicely on the first 10 or 12 boards. After refilling it leaked like a sieve! The paint was dripping from between the filled container section and the body of the tool. It was very time consuming trying to keep an eye on the drips to smooth them out. (Smoothed out this drip and added 10 more!) More sealer was dripping than going onto the boards through the pad. I was fighting a loosing battle. As a result the deck is VERY blotchy. Also, the pad was only good for about 20 boards. I only took breaks to refill the reservoir. I am now on my way to the hardware store to buy some rollers.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Kevinm27 from Poor Quality Bought the Renuvo after having a Deckmate for several years. First time using the new Renuvo the flow would not stop even when the trigger was off. The stain came out so fast that it could not be spread around. It was useless. Couldn't even use it once.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Chris8 from Tool made staining easier, but clean up a little more cumbersome. Stained my deck floor boards using the Wagner Renuvo deck staining tool. Took some getting used to. But after watching a video online i got the hang of it and it looks awesome, very even finish. Saved me so much time on the typical back breaking process on the floorboards. Clean up wasn't as easy as throwing a brush or stain pad away though.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Steve421 from The pad clogged up after only five or six deck boards were covered. The "Troubleshooting" recomendations were followed: messy andtimeconsuming The product in theory is a good idea, but in practice, is a disaster. The application bad quickly stopped laying down product after only five or six deck boards were covered. The protruding brush for painting between board functioned poorly as well. The weight of the tool when filled with material is heavy. Following the "troubleshooting" recommendations for insufficient material flow added unnecessary time and proved messy as well. The product was a complete waste of time and money.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Renee from Adequate, but barely The unit arrived with a slightly damaged feeder tube, but it didn't end up making any difference, as it was not cracked. The unit did not leak anywhere. The two brushes came off too easily, a slight twist would pop it off every time. The brushes would never become saturated with stain anyway, so we just took it off and used the Renuvo as a stainer. For this, it did a good job, but I still had to go between all the boards with a brush.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JaniceRoger from Deckmate has great features... We used this deckmate today and it covered well and was so much easier to use rather than a roller. The best part is it did the groves. Our deck looks great!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by MikeM from Worst Product I've Bought in Years I went to Home Depot last week to buy stain/waterproofing for my deck and came upon this item. After reading the box, I thought it was a good idea. Unfortunately it was not the case. First of all, the pad doesn't get saturated evenly, so numerous passes are needed. The little brush that is supposed to coat in between the deck boards is useless, so one would need to use a brush to finish that off. Shortly after starting, the stain started to drip out of Renuvo and left droplets over the previously stained areas, so numerous passes were needed. By the time I was half way done, the stain was just about pouring out of every part that had a joint or supposed seal; it was a total mess. Even thought the concept is good, the execution and quality of the product was terrible. I would have been better off with a roller and a brush. I was so disgusted with the product that I just threw it away; I didn't even bother to bring it back. A total waste of money.

Can you use Thompsons Water Seal with the Renuvo?
You certainly can. The Renuvo can handle water and oil-based materials that clean up with soap and water or mineral spirits.

Our deck boards are grooved so a flat pad will not coat all of it. Are you developing a pad that will accommodate this feature?
The deck pad included with the unit is thick enough to apply stain into grooved boards, per the testing that we have done.

Can renuvo apply rustoleum 2x paint stain or duck start wood primer ?
Rustoleum Restore and other restorative deck products will be too thick to apply with the Renuvo.

Can the Renuvo be used to paint decks, including with paints with no slip additives?
Even if only for one use it would be worth it for it's ability to paint in between the boards... thanks MikeP
The Renuvo is designed currently to be used with oil and water-based deck stains that are labeled as transparent, semi-transparent, and solid. Popular coatings that are formulated to be thicker than paint or solid stains in order to fill imperfections, or lengthen the life of a deck, will not flow through the Renuvo due to their viscous nature. If you have any questions regarding the coatings that you are considering, please contact Wagner before application with the Renuvo.

I can not find replacment pads for Renuvo anywhere. Home depot shows out of stock all the time. Where are they?
Sorry but you can't. I called the number and the pads are on back order until the middle of June, 2015. I wasn't able to even put in an order ... the lady on the phone was very nice but there was no procedure for ordering the pads at this point. I will be trying again in June. I like the product and it works well for me It normally takes me half a day to do my large deck. I was done with the deck in less than 2 hours and the amount of sealer that went down was better than I could ever get with a roller and very uniform. If anyone knows where I can get pads I'm all ears.
