Capture the timeless beauty of natural grain

Water-based elastomeric log home finish and stain

Capture® Log Stain

Capture Log Stain benefits include:

  • Excellent elasticity, proven durability: Capture® Log Stain’s unique formula moves freely as your logs move, instead of cracking and peeling like the others. It provides the long-lasting protection you need and creates the dream-worthy look you want.
  • Maintenance made easy with Cascade® Clear Coat:  Skip the arduous work of completely removing your log home stain when it needs refreshing. Simply clean the surface, apply Cascade®, and get back to life.
  • Easy water clean-up:  Skin, earth, and nose friendly is always a plus. No harsh chemicals required.
  • Exterior/Interior Use: Capture® Log Stain is excellent for all of your vertical woodwork, inside and out. It won’t hide the grain, but instead brings out its natural glow.
Use Capture® on interior and exterior wood surfaces, including:
  • Logs and timbers
  • Wood siding
  • Wood trim
  • Log and wood railings and spindles

I revisited one of these log homes about eleven years after I did the original refinish work with Sashco’s Capture/Cascade system. The Cascade clear coat was still intact and beading up water. That was the moment I decided that the best choice for all of my customers was Sashco’s Capture/Cascade system.
