One option when a finished look is desired on exterior Hardwood Porches, Furniture, Trim, and Doors is to use 1- 2 coats Waterlox Marine Sealer , and two coats of WaterloxMarine Finish, with expected maintenance at 8-18 months in severe or direct south and west exposure. Testing is always required to evaluate specific project results.
You can add a conventional oil stain at up to a 1 part stain to 4 parts Waterlox in the first coat of Sealer for added UV resistance and color enhancement. This is an elegant finished look that we, and many clients, have experienced excellent results with.
