Choosing the right finish can help keep your redwood looking exactly how you want it. For interior or exterior finishes, whether you want a clear or tinted finish, our finish guides can help you choose, apply and enjoy a finish that help protect your redwood for years.
Exterior Finishes Not Recommended
Varnishes and polyurethanes crack and peel when applied to exteriors. They are difficult and expensive to apply and deteriorate quickly. Removal can be expensive and difficult.
Oil treatments will attract dirt, are highly susceptible to mildew and darken the wood.
“Shake and shingle” type paints do not last well on redwood siding.
