If the woodwork in your home is looking dull and worn out, you don’t have to replace it. A natural wood stain or wood sealer can enhance the inherent beauty of the grain and protect wood from moisture and abrasion. Outdoor siding, trim, fences, and decks require even more maintenance because of the elements. A durable exterior wood stain will resist just about anything Mother Nature can throw at it.
Although wood is the world’s most popular natural building material, it can fade, rot, and degrade over time unless you protect it from the sun, rain, snow, and wind. Insects, animals, and humans can also take their toll.
The Natural Choice
What we love about wood is that it is easily repairable. Unlike vinyl, plastic, or other synthetic materials, wood can be restored over and over and can last for generations. Nothing on the planet is as sustainable as wood, but it does require routine maintenance. Hazardous chemicals are often used for wood, and they can be harmful to humans and our environment. Green wood stains and sealers are now available that can do the job without the negative impacts.
At Green Building Supply, we carry an outstanding selection of natural wood stain and sealer products that can enhance your home environment with better-looking wood and a toxic-free lifestyle. After all, we’ve been researching and testing non-toxic building products for dozens of years to make sure they meet our strict guidelines for sustainability and healthier living.
The volatile organic compounds, or VOCs, used in many types of paints, stains, and sealers can contribute to environmental smog, which increases global warming. In addition, some people have respiratory and allergic reactions to these compounds when used indoors. That’s why we bring you a wide range of premium stains and sealers made with low or no VOCs. These products provide healthier alternatives that are a smart choice for your personal space as well as for the overall environment. At the same time, our sealers and stains will perform as well or better than their toxic counterparts, offering outstanding durability as well as a wonderful look.
You will discover a wide variety of stains and sealers here, suitable for decks, siding, and all kinds of exterior and interior use. If you need stain or sealer for countertops, bowls, toys, or children’s furniture, make sure to check out our food-grade wood finish products.
