    Does anything last longer than two years?

    In any real climate?
    No.
    Epifanes is the longest lasting you'll find, but it's really not much longer and it's very pricey.
    Around here, with four seasons, there's no magic bullet.

    What application are we talking about? I've had regular ole untreated pine last several years with nothing more than a couple coats of cheap latex paint.

    10 years and going strong with two coats of kelly moore exterior latex paint on plywood and doug fir duck blinds, just need to keep the beavers away, which isn't easy.

    If you read the fine print in the application instructions most if not all waterproofing products want you to check them and reapply every year if necessary..From Thompsons Water seal
    Length of protection will vary depending on environment. Perform the splash test once a year to see whether reapplication is necessary. Vertical and horizontal surfaces will experience color changes at different rates.

    I assumed we were talking clear finishes. But yes, latex paint is a no-brainer.

    Yes I was referring to clear finishes such as on a deck.

    Now that West Tennessee has turned into a tropical jungle with a foot of rain each week, no.

    Thompsons Water Seal was my go to sealer for many, many years but last year's application didn't last 6 months. With 80' of wood porches, I don't need to apply and re-apply. This year will be some other brand.
