Everyone knows that outdoor wood needs to be protected. Generally speaking, there are two ways to go about protecting your wood from the elements. First, you can seal the wood to protect it from water damage as well as prevent dirt, pollen and mold from getting down into your wood. Second, you can stain your wood to protect it from the damaging effects of the sun’s UV rays.
Seal It Green XTREME Exotic does both.
For those who like the fresh cut natural beauty of their wood simply applying a clear sealer may be a tempting option but over time it may not be enough. If you are faced with this decision it is important to understand the weathering process:
- Wood that is sealed with a clear sealer will not retain its natural color for long.
- Exposure to the sun will soon cause the wood to fade and turn gray or silver. This happens as the UV rays “bleach” the color from your wood.
If you want to maintain an even color over time, you have to protect the wood with a pigmented stain. The pigments are designed to absorb or reflect UV rays much the way you use sun screen to keep from getting sun burned. If your desire is to keep your wood looking as natural as possible, select a color that is similar or lighter than your wood. This will allow the wood tone to last longer as it is close to the natural color. (If you put a deep brown color on a white wood just walking on it will remove the deep color revealing the bold white underneath; this will not look good over time.)
Applying Seal It Green XTREME Exotic Wood Sealer & Stain Treatment early on will keep your wood stable by ensuring less checking, cracking, splitting, cupping and warping allowing it to maintain its beautiful, natural appearance with very little maintenance. In fact, many manufacturers and distributors are now coating their wood with Seal It Green XTREME Exotic before shipping it from their facilities. (For best results, it is recommended additional coats be applied once the wood has been installed or utilized for its intended purpose.)
Note: Previously coated wood must have coating removed prior to application of Seal It Green XTREME.
