How to use
1. Start by removing any dirt or debris to prep the wood for application. Then, lightly wet the surface. Cedarshield applies best to damp wood.
2. 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
For projects thicker than 2X4 inches, apply to both sides of the wood when possible for quicker application.
3. 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 larger projects, an additional application may be required after 5-7 years.
How much do I need? (Sizing info)
