What is Cedarshield?
Formerly known as Turner's Choice, Cedarshield is a wood treatment that prevents rot, decay, insect damage, and strengthens the wood itself. Apply to decks, fencing, furniture, garden boxes, docks, etc.
Cedarshield wood treatment strengthens and increases the life of both hard and soft wood, great for any woodworking project!
“I have been using Cedarshield for 10 years in a number of wood applications in both New York, and now in southern Baja, Mexico where I’m doing natural construction and furniture making. It has proven excellent and forms part of my base treatment for all my wood projects.”
- Andrew Jones
How to Use Cedarshield
Apply with a compression sprayer, brush, roller, or by soaking/submersion. Continue to apply until the wood surface is fully saturated. Wood thicker than 3/4 inch should be treated on both sides and may require additional applications. 1 gallon covers approximately 150 sq ft. of wood. Allow 72 hours for Cedarshield to dry before applying paints or stains.
For best results, apply a second treatment immediately after the first application has dried. Cedarshield works best when applied to semi-damp wood in temperatures above 45°F/7.22°C. Cedarshield does not offer UV protection.
