Capture the timeless beauty of natural grain

Water-based elastomeric log home finish and stain

Capture® Log Stain

Why use Capture Log Stain on your log cabin?

  • Excellent elasticity, proven durability – Capture® Log Stain’s unique elastic formula allows it to move 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 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 most of  your vertical woodwork, inside and out. It won’t hide the grain, but instead brings out its natural glow.

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.
