"Personally I think most mold problems are related to architecture rather than stain selection. Horizontal wood holds moisture much longer than vertical wood, so a log home with only minimal roof overhangs is going to be more problematic than a stick…"

"Hi Tim, so are you saying that you had mold issues with both Woodguard and Transformation?? Did you use a mildewcide both times by adding it into your stain? The white residue looks to be on the surface and should wipe off and does not look to be…"

"Yeah, that natural color from Sashco is definitely on the light side for sure (and I am in no way trying to continue to disagree) but lighter pigments like that are also very known for offering the absolute least protection on a log home and require…"

"Sashco Transformation Log and Timber does not come in a clear.  And clear and Natural are not the same, it’s like saying red and green are the same, they are not.  This knowledge is not unique to Colorado."

"We used solely the TRANSFORMATION in a specific tint for all applications. No other "clear coat" was applied. And the applicator was one certified by Sashco and he is the one who purchased everything used."

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:(mrs.joycegyimah200@gmail.com ) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.

Joyce.
