Customer reviews for 1-gal. Clear Gloss Finish Log Cabin Home

1-gal. Clear Gloss Finish Log Cabin Home

The BEHR 1-Gallon Gloss Water Clear Log Home Finish is great for use on log- and timber-frame houses, siding, fencing and more. It features a waterproof water-based formula with mildewcide that also resists damage from UV rays and mildew. The 1-gallon can covers areas up to 400 sq. ft. The stain dries to the touch in 12 hours and should be reapplied after 1 day for best results.

I've been using this now for 5 years on a log home after stripping off an oil-based "natural" product as described by previous homeowner. The oil based product was the first product applied to a brand new log home and mildewed/black mold under the finish requiring the 3-step Behr stripping process before refinishing.
Behr Log home finish is better than Thompsons or Behr waterproofing finsih for logs as it does not require stripping each few years to re-seal/recoat. Just wash off the dust or lightly pressure wash and add coats to build finish. Still is glossy and waterproof after applying two years ago. Waterbased for easy clean-up and completing small areas at a time. Way cheaper than sikens and the specialty brand log home finishes which if you read some reviews have still had mold issues under finish. Behr appears to resist bugs/termites also. Special order it in 5-gal size during the annual $20/off paint sales for best deal.
Pros: Easy to Apply, Good Coverage, Easy to Clean, Looks Great, Dries Quickly

We have a cedar planked fence that has a huge southern exposure. We wanted to keep the fresh cedar look but every sealer would fall off in one year. The Log Cabin product has lasted 3 years now. We just bought some more to put an extra coat to freshen it up.

No, I do not recommend this product.
Behr exterior gloss transparent log finish, I apply this every year for 5 years the Behr rawhide clear was a much better product.
