Note: Woods such as redwood, red cedar, mahogany, Douglas fir, etc. contain tannic acid which tends to migrate to the surface and discolor the stain, especially noticeable when using light colors. The discoloration is not harmful and can usually be removed. Apply a cleaning solution of All Wood Cleaner. Do not allow cleaning solution to dry on wood surfaces.

Check the Moisture Content of Your Logs
Do not apply Seal-Once™ Nano Guard Plus Poly Waterproofing Wood Sealer Waterproofing Wood Sealer to wood with over 22% moisture content.
To test the moisture content of your wood, borrow a moisture meter from your contractor or purchase one at your local hardware store. For quick reference:
Laminated logs: The moisture content of laminated logs is generally below 14%. These logs are usually ready for immediate application of Seal-Once™ Nano Guard Plus Poly Waterproofing Wood Sealer Waterproofing Wood Sealer once they have been cleaned and allowed to dry for the appropriate amount of time. Always use a moisture meter to confirm the moisture content.
Kiln-dried or air dried logs: Use a moisture meter to check.
Green, wet, or treated logs: These logs have a moisture content greater than 22%. Allow the logs to sit in a dry area and check their moisture content on a regular basis. Logs with high moisture content can take up to 6 months to 1 year to reach the appropriate 22% or below moisture content for applying Seal-Once™ Nano Guard Plus Poly Waterproofing Wood Sealer.
Apply a Wood Preservative
A wood preservative (borate) is only necessary for new construction with logs, siding, and structures that are infested with powder post beetles and termites. Not needed for deck applications.
Have your logs been pre-treated with a wood preservative (borate) at the factory or mill? Contact your log or siding provider if unsure.
What is a wood preservative?
Wood preservatives (borate) make wood toxic to wood damaging organisms such as powder post beetles, carpenter ants and fungi. Wood preservatives do not protect against Carpenter Bees and other wood drilling insects, only those that ingest wood. Click here to find out about additives available for prevention of Carpenter Bees.
Why apply a wood preservative (borate) before applying Seal-Once™ Nano Guard Plus Poly Waterproofing Wood Sealer?
Applying a wood preservative can protect your home from damaging organisms for the life of the home. Seal-Once™ Nano Guard Plus Poly Waterproofing Wood Sealer soaks into wood to create a film that protects against mold/mildew growth and repels water. If a tint is chosen with Seal-Once™ Nano Guard Plus Poly Waterproofing Wood Sealer, the tint provides UV protection. Seal-Once™ Nano Guard Plus Poly Waterproofing Wood Sealer on its own is not a wood preservative. LogFinish.com recommends applying ShellGuard RTU or ShellGuard Concentrate to your logs before applying Seal-Once™ Nano Guard Plus Poly Waterproofing Wood Sealer.
Caulk All Gaps and Checks
Caulking is only necessary if your project contains logs and siding. Not needed for deck applications.
It is natural for wood to crack/check over time due to changing seasons, temperature and aging.
Fill any spaces between the logs and upward facing cracks/checks in the wood after applying a wood preservative and before applying Seal-Once™ Nano Guard Plus Poly Waterproofing Wood Sealer. Fill all joints, cracks, and nail holes with a good quality acrylic latex caulk/filler created specifically for use with wood like Energy Seal or Check Mate 2 prior to applying finish.
Test the Stain
We always recommended performing a two coat color test to a clean, dry, bare area of the structure that you are planning on applying Seal-Once™ Nano Guard Plus Poly Waterproofing Wood Sealer. Please Note: Seal-Once™ Nano Guard Plus Poly Waterproofing Wood Sealer is difficult to remove once it has been applied. Before doing a full application make sure that your color selection is correct, has a look you want, and a maintenance schedule you can manage.

I did a lot of research prior to choosing Seal Once Polyblend for our deck. I was initially leaning toward the oil-based product they sell, but went with the Polyblend at the recommendation of the Logfinish rep. Though water-based, it penetrates well and has easy cleanup. It is very thin and watery, which worried me a little at first, but the redwood color we used is beautiful. It looked good after the 1st coat, but absolutely beautiful after the 2nd coat. Water beads up on it after a rain and it should hold up for 6 years on horizontal surfaces. The Logfinish rep was very helpful and they sent me 6 different colors to try out by 2nd day mail. Also, the estimated coverage per gallon was spot on. Don’t be put off by its cost. It’s worth every cent (and you get what you pay for)!

This stain/sealer is awesome!
I had used some crap stain/sealer for my deck a few years back and I knew I hated it when I first put it on. Now that it had gotten old, I sanded it off and decided I’d rather spend the extra cost on a better grade sealer.
I put three coats on the handrails and steps and two on everything else. It went on evenly, and was a dream to work with. It drys fast so you’ll need to keep moving to sustain a wet edge. I love the sheen it has. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone wondering if it’s worth the extra cost. I can’t imagine anyone being disappointed.
My deck looks like fine furniture! Now to keep those birds from perching on it!

The folks at logfinish.com were super helpful, as my buddy who just did his log home said they would be. There was a little bit of a learning curve, but I got the hang of it pretty quick. Looked great after one coat, amazing after two coats. The sample doesnt quite do the color justice as there isnt really enough in the sample to appreciate the rich ness of the color. We chose redwood and it exceeded our hopes. Looks like a pro did the job. We sprayed using the sprayer they sell, and used the wooster brushes. Good combo for a good job. We cleaned the wood with the all wood cleaner. Glad I did. Dirtier than I thought, and it seemed to take the stain better than the test pieces. I have lapped inch thick rough cut pine siding dried in place for one year, at 18 percent moisture content. This was the perfect choice. A neighbor commented that the house looked like a piece of furniture with this finish.
Not that bad
