"Thanks Charis. I actually have a whole set of samples that we received last year before beginning this process.  I'll try a blend and see if we can darken it up a bit.  Thanks for the reply... i'll let you know how it comes out."

"Hey, Adam.  It's possible the brown tone would reduce some of the red tint to the stain. What I'd recommend you do is try out some samples of the different colors to see which one might work, and I'm happy to send those samples…"

Sashco Transformation Log & Timber - Red Tone Dark vs Brown Tone Dark

I recently used Sashco Transformation Log & Timber, color Red Tone Dark on my home.  While I love the product, this color came out a bit too red for our liking.  2 coats have been applied, so it already has a good sheen.  Will using a 3rd coat of Brown Tone instead of hte red darken the overall color and give it more of the "brown" look?  Trying to decide if we are going to switch the color to brown before moving on to the remainder of the house?  Any advise would be appreciated.See More

"Adam, I would stay as far away from Transformation stain as you can. We had it put on our new log home by one of their so-called Certified contractors and it was still the absolute WORST product I have ever encountered. Within two years it was…"

"Do you mean is there a clear top coat for Woodscapes Solid? Most water-based clear coats will go over a solid stain without any issues. That said, the difference in elasticity between the two products could cause some issues. If one or the other…"

CharisB replied to Adam's discussion Woodguard...top coat?
"Transformation will usually adhere over previous stains, as long as they've weathered for a minimum of 18 mos. Sounds like you're well beyond that. THAT SAID, it's quite possible the wood itself isn't "sound," meaning…"

Adam replied to Adam's discussion Woodguard...top coat?
"Thanks Charis. I sampled transformation and like that as well, although obviously a different type of oil. Most of the wood is pretty dried out and clearly hasn't been treated in years (we bought home 1 year ago). Will transformation adhere…"

CharisB replied to Adam's discussion Woodguard...top coat?
"I don't know where to find Woodguard TC, but I can tell you that traditional top coats, almost all of which are water-based, will NOT work over top of Woodguard. Woodguard contains non-drying oils - waxes and what not - that interfere with the…"

Woodguard...top coat?

I recently came across some info for Woodguard TC (top coat), but cannot find the product anywhere.  Is anyone familiar with this, is it still available?I am applying Woodguard to my home and curious if there are any compatible, breathable top coats for a this penetrating stain?  If so, what is the best means for reapplication of the stain once top coat is applied?Thanks,AdamSee More

"It has a fancy name.  I would stay away from it...  The price is probably mostly marketing.  Here's what it made of: mineral spirits - cheap water - what the mineral spirits are hydrotreated with - cheap parrafin wax - extremely…"

"What is it made of, and how much does it cost?  Is it mostly marketing (yes) or mostly costly, effective ingredients (no)?"

"Hi Adam - No - it does not leave a gloss finish.  If you ask for some samples, you'll be able to test it out on your logs or other pieces of wood to see the type of product it is and what to expect.  If you like give us a call…"
