Quick Facts

Exceptional Water Repellency

WOODguard is an oil-based formula that provides long-term protection and water repellency by penetrating deeply into the wood.

Application Versatility

WOODguard is ideally suited for log homes, shingle and shake roofs, siding and fences, especially rough-sawn lumber, old weathered wood, and new porous woods. Not intended for use on decks.

Proven Decay/Fungus Prevention

WOODguard effectively prevents surface blue stain, fungi, molds and mildew.

Excellent Termite/Insect Control

WOODguard protects against insects including termites and anobiid powderpost beetles.

UV Protection

WOODguard contains colorless UV blockers to help ensure that long-term exposure to sunlight won't strip wood of natural oils and beauty.  For even more UV protection, pigmented WOODguard also contains micronized trans-oxides.

One-Coat Application

From the first application, WOODguard begins protecting your wood.  On new construction, we generally recommend a second coat within 2 to 4 years.

Breathable Finish

WOODguard forms a semi-transparent, weather-resistant polymer film that protects the finish and allows the logs to breathe.

WOODguard is available in Clear and six factory colors, as well as custom colors tinted by your dealer.  CLICK HERE to see available factory colors for WOODguard.
