How does Cedarshield work?
Unlike less effective wood treatments and seals, Cedarshield soaks all the way through the wood, protecting it from the inside out. This hardens and strengthens the wood against rot, decay, warping, splintering, moisture damage and more.
Can it be used on all types of wood?
Of course! Cedarshield can be used on all wood types and projects, new or old, including treated, sealed and painted wood.
How often do I need to apply?
In most instances, Cedarshield is a one-and-done lifetime treatment. As a precaution, we suggest re-checking the wood in about 7 years.
Can it be used to treat older wood that’s already damaged by water or pests?
It sure can! While Cedarshield won’t reverse pre-existing damage, it will help prevent that damage from getting worse and dramatically extend the life of the wood.
Will the product change the color or appearance of wood?
Nope—Cedarshield does not change the color or appearance of wood. However, you are free to paint or stain the wood 72 hours after your final Cedarshield application.
Is it safe to use around pets and children?
Yes, when used as directed, Cedarshield is safe to use around pets and children, and will not leach out into the environment or soil after it’s fully dried (about 72 hours).
Start by removing any dirt or debris to prep the wood for application. Then, lightly wet the surface. Cedarshield applies best to damp wood.
Wearing gloves, use a brush, roller, submersion or a sprayer to apply. You’ll know you have a full application when Cedarshield beads up on the surface and will no longer soak into the wood. Cedarshield works best when applied in temperatures above 45°F.
Allow 72 hours for Cedarshield to fully dry. Then, you’re free to paint, stain, or seal. Cedarshield is usually a one-time, lifetime treatment.
For projects thicker than 2X4 inches, apply to both sides of the wood when possible for quicker application. For larger projects, an additional application may be required after 5-7 years.
