We formulate for performance, ease of use, product safety, re-do ability AND A NATURAL LOOK! As such we don't use Acrylics, Silicone or Urethane, ingredients which can OVERPROTECT in a way that you may not like OR, when it needs to be re-done, requires caustic and expensive Strippers or Sanding AND MUCH MORE LABOR to remove and replace- BAD CHOICE! Instead, we use an Alkyd and Petroleum Oils based formula that Protects, Looks Natural, Lasts Long, and is easier to re-do when the time comes (which it always does!).
All exterior woods and their protective sealers/finishes WEATHER from standing water, snow, sunlight (UV), foot traffic & dirt, etc., Mother Nature and use age takes a toll every day! Hard, shiny SURFACE coatings, paint and semi-transparent stains all eventually crack, chip, peel or wear non-uniformly, some way too soon! They are trouble to re-do, too. Our penetrating sealer/finish protects your wood from the inside (the sealer protects the wood; the wood protects the sealer), lasts long, and WE THINK LOOKS BETTER, TOO!
At Sun Frog we've been making Natural Wood Maintenance and Sealer/Finish products for almost 30 years. A lot of customers tell us that BY FAR our sealers are the best they have used, and they use them again and again! These customers are the wind in our sails!
We help staying with Natural Wood A GREAT CHOICE, which it really is.
Thank You, Sun Froggers!
