Lifeline Exterior

five star

Transparent Wood Finish

Our original exterior wall formula has been updated and improved for over 20 years. Lifeline Exterior forms a thin film at the surface of logs where the protection is needed.

Its breathability and flexibility allows logs to go through seasonal expansion and contraction while drying out to their core. Apply a clear topcoat of Lifeline Advance to maximize durability and minimize maintenance cost and labor.

five star K Wilson in WA (02/26/15) - "I have a cabin in Washington State where I used your Lifeline Exterior finish on. The Stain is very easy to use and still looks like I just put it on yesterday, and it’s been on my home for 7 years. Thanks for making such a durable & long lasting finish."

five star Marilyn B in TN (10/05/14) - "My husband & I have used your products on our homes for years. We have had good results with your original Lifeline Exterior stain. I know the Ultra stains have warranties and last longer, but we are on a budget. Oh and thank you for adding that BRONZE as a new color choice for us. Most of the homes in this area are that same color. Love your products!"
