Capture the timeless beauty of natural grain

Water-based elastomeric log home finish and stain

Capture® Log Stain

  • Won’t crack: Protects the wood underneath to prevent moisture infiltration, UV damage, and frequent re-staining (ugh)
  • Highlights wood’s natural beauty: You chose wood to showcase it, not hide it

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.
