i had previously purchase sikkens stain in order to coat my patio furnature, tool shed, etc. right off the bat i "wasnt" impressed with the smell, the way it applied, or how long it took to dry. long story short, i was happy with the color but the sikkens product had failed. i had heard of CBR products through a friend and that they had a guy that color matches by eye. i brought in a piece of my shed in order to get it matched, as i walked in the front door, the show room was buzzing. Laughter and smiles all around. the owner (bill) was just finishing up with another customer. when i was able to finally sit down talk about my issues. it had seemed he had heard all about other products failing and knew exactly how to go about fixing it. even so to the extent of already having the exact color i wanted already on file. in a matter of no time, i had my stain mixed and was on my way. i loved the way it applied and could barely even smell the stain. ever since, havent had a problem with its durability or performance. i would recomend this product to anyone.. THANKS CBR!!!
