Cascade® Clear Top Coat

Cascade Clear Top Coat benefits include:

  • Maintenance made easy: Skip the arduous work of completely removing your stain when it needs refreshing. Simply clean the wood surface, apply Cascade Clear Top Coat to bring back that just-stained look, and get back to life.
  • Easy water clean-up: Skin, earth, and nose friendly is always a plus. No harsh chemicals required.
  • Easy to know when: If the surface has lost its sheen, it’s time for maintenance. No second-guessing necessary. It’s the easiest way to keep your log home looking like the day it was finished.
  • Won’t discolor chinking: Cascade Clear Top Coat is clear, so routine maintenance applications won’t affect the color of your log home chinking or other sealants.
  • Repels water: Keeps your logs in tip-top shape and your rot concerns at bay.
  • Resists mildew & algae: Ensures that unsightly growths stay where they belong – in a lab, not on your logs.
  • Protects against UV damage: Cascade protects Capture Log Stain from major color shifts to maintain that just-stained look.

Cascade Clear Top Coat is specially designed for use over top of Capture® Log Stain.

Gary, Big Bear, CA

Our log cabin truly is a work of art, like a painting, and the paints we used on our easel were from Sashco. After four years, we just had our first maintenance application of Cascade. Only having to apply the clear-coat of Cascade was a money saver and made the cabin’s wood ‘pop’ again.
