Naturally perfect wood protection for log homes.

Log HomesYour log home is a monument to your unique taste and personality. It tells the world that you won’t just settle for the status quo. So why settle for an average stain?

Not only does a log home require protection from sun and rain, but the sheer size of the wood demands a coating that “breathes” freely to prevent moisture from getting trapped and rotting the log from within. Sansin’s penetrating Enviro Stains are specially designed to protect the natural beauty of your log home. Because they use water to carry modified natural oils deep into the logs, Sansin Classic and SDF can be applied even to wood with a high moisture content – particularly useful for log homes where moisture levels of 25% or more are common. By comparison, most water- and solvent-based coatings can only be applied to surfaces with moisture content conditions of 18% or less and once applied, are more likely to trap moisture deep within the logs.

As logs age and dry, they tend to check and crack. With traditional coatings, a surface crack can be catastrophic, allowing water to penetrate and causing wood to decay. With Classic and SDF, checks only contribute to the unique personality of your home – the surface of your wood is already protected from within. And because it’s designed to wear gently with the passage of time, wood care involves only a simple cleaning and maintenance coat.

Complete protection, inside and out.

Enhance the beauty and character of your log home interior with the exceptional colour and clarity of Sansin Purity. With three finishes – in addition to Purity Floor – and a wide array of colours, the effect you want to achieve is only limited by your imagination. All Sansin Purity Interior formulations are low- or zero-VOC and easy to apply.

Sansin also manufactures a complete line of sealant products, as well as log primers and coatings specifically designed to protect against rot, fungus and decay.
