How to Use Cedarshield

Apply with a compression sprayer, brush, roller, or by soaking/submersion. 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. Cedarshield can be used on both treated and untreated wood.

    I plan to use CedarShield on some wooden pieces of my small home greenhouse. I don’t want to have to replace those pieces of wood for a long time, and I’m counting on CedarShield for that.

    Our shopping experience was super easy. We haven’t used the product yet, but shipping was fast and our project begins this week. Buying treated lumber and then having to wait months is not going to keep the wood in nice shape. We’ll be happy to be able to paint our patio posts in short order!

    Pine wood fence, Cedar was Prohibitive in cost. Let it weather one year and then put on The Cedershield. This is the 4th year. Still looks great, no bows, splits or warping. Doing the new deck this year.

    Arrived in good shape, was afraid it would have leaked but was well packaged. So glad to have a treatment for the raw wood deck that also will repel unwanted vermin. Can’t report back on how it will withstand the test of time, yet, but we know where to get more if we need it.

    Ordered CEDARSHIELD to put on our log home…it covers everything we were looking for. Kill any pesty bugs and help add moisture to the logs. I have used CEDARCIDE before as it is can be safely used for humans and pets. I apply some before I go to work in my garden so the flying bugs won’t bother me.

    I have been using your Cedarshield product 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 in this context and forms part of my base treatment for all my wood projects. I’m currently preparing an 8′ slab of local oak for a kitchen prep table. In order to seal it and make it sanitary for kitchen use, I intend to use a bar top epoxy. I have no experience using epoxy products at this point – would there be any problem applying cedar shield a few days before I intend to do the epoxy application?
    Thanks for your advice and for continuing to make a great, natural and not-toxic (to humans and pets) product.
    Best wishes,
    AJ

      Sounds great! Allow 72 hours for Cedarshield to cure before applying any top coat. Thanks!

  78. BobChesley (verified owner)

    I’ve been using cedar shield on all my outdoor log furniture and chain saw carvings for several years. It does a great job of keeping the bugs out and repelling rain and snow damage. I recommend it all my friends on the chain saw carving sites. I let the pieces set for a few days before applying polyurethane when I want that glass coated look. Thanks for a valuable addition to my go to tools.

    A year and a half ago I had a very large carve to make out of a slab of Western Maple. It was 4″ thick, 7′ tall and 42″ wide. The log had been cut down roughly three months previously, and then we cut the portion of the log we selected into slabs. Selecting my slab I took it home and put it in my shop. I walled off a room in the shop and installed 3 large fans, a small heater and a large commercial dehumidifier. Everyday I was emptying a bucket of water and after a week I noticed some significant cracks starting. I called my friend from whom I bought the slab from and he instantly said, didn’t I give you a gallon of CedarShield. I did not even know what CedarShield was. I went out to his house and picked up a gallon of CedarShield, took it home and immediately painted it on both sides of the slab. I left the fans running, the heater on, and the dehumidifier running. To my surprise, I did not get another drop of water out of the dehumidifier. The Cracking stopped, and I carved the slab into a large picture of Christ as I was commissioned to do. This product is great.

    I have a large (30′ by 25′) 25 year old deck and have replaced the decking 3 times and the Cedar planking was showing wear and would need to be replaced again within several years. This after sealing with various product ever 1 to 2 years. There had to be a better way. I found Cedarcide did some research, and decided to give it a try. Well it performed exactly as advertised. I completely sanded the deck to rid it of the splinters and spalling. When I applied the Cedarcide, water was bubbling out of the planks, even though there had not been any rain for over a week. This was 6 years ago and there has been no spalling, splintering and minimal additional wear on the deck planks. I can now walk on the deck with bare feet and not be concerned about splinters, warping or screws backing out of the decking. I am looking forward to many more years of an attractive and safe deck. I also tested Cedarcide on my split rail fence 30 years old (spruce rails and Locust posts, The treated posts have shown absolutely minimal wear, the old posts and rails have shown little additional degradation and the replaced ones are as strong as when installed. Great product, I am no longer a servant to my deck and fence.

    I build custom tables and furniture from Reclaimed barn wood for a living.This 100+ yr .old wood can be alittle crazy .Since i started using Cedarcide to treat my table tops and other finicky pieces,I haven’t had a single top warp or returned for repairs.I ‘m not sure if all the clais are true but the proof is in the pudding .As long as the pieces are stable and aren’t being returned,The small cost is money well spent.I’ll continue to use Cedarcide moving forward.thanks

    One of the biggest things that sells me on cedarshield is that it penetrates existing coatings. There are other non-toxic wood preservatives, but that’s the only one I’ve found that penetrates coatings. That’s very useful, as generally half the wood in existence is painted, stained, or varnished, yet needs rot protection. In that case, cedarshield is the perfect answer. If moisture can start getting through paint after like a year, causing decay to start setting in, then why not use that penetrating ability to apply cedarshield as well, which will preserve the wood. On a little piece of wood whose paint was coming off and so I applied cedarshield, some more paint came off, wow! This is not a problem, this is a good thing, as this would make paint, stain, and varnish preparation easier by shaking loose potentially loose paint. And yet any paint that is still truly sound and so doesn’t need to come off will stay on after the treatment.

    Very glad to have found Cedar Shield. I used to try to preserve wood as an old child with paint and varnish, but much as I usually like painting and varnishing and am usually good at it, it was not satisfactory. The paint or varnish constantly peels off and you have to reapply it or the wooden structure will rot away. Reapplying this conventional finish is a lot of work what with the preparation, and that is the hard and time consuming part which must be gone through before the easy, fun part of applying. So much easier to be able to apply Cedar Shield and then apply paint or varnish later if desired. And Cedar Shield works better for preservation as well. So this product means less work, better preservation. In addition, paints and varnishes may not stop rot that has already started, they only (at least hopefully) prevent rot, whereas Cedar Shield can do that. So good rot stopper if rot has already started. And this product is also has a very nice cedar smell.
    As a university student, I discovered “Lifetime wood treatment” that comes as a powder you mix with water, and I was pleased to see that as a solution too, but that can only be applied to bare wood, so it’s useless for any wood with any type of coating on it. So finally also a lifetime wood treatment that can even penetrate existing coatings, as half the time or more I have to deal with wood that is painted or varnished already.
    Me and my mother’s carpenters not this past but last spring were also glad to be able to use it, because they say they’ve seen conventional end cut preservatives, and those are toxic and are green in colour and so don’t even look good, let alone the smell and the impact on our health and the environment. They were very glad to be able to use something that preserves the end cuts but doesn’t show and is non-toxic. When they strengthened and extended our fence, I also sprayed some on a wedge that they put in the ground to strengthen the fence. Since the wedge was not pressure treated wood, we had the perfect solution on hand!
    Handy that I was able to spray it on our fence and shed and preserve them better than paint while only having to do washing and rinsing for preparation, no scraping or sanding. It was handy to be able to spray it on my client’s porch railings as well. And I’ll be able to use it to preserve their fence for any slats I don’t replace as well as for the posts and beams, which I’m sure are for the most part fine right now, but if not treated, may well rot sooner or later.
    After having used it, I’ll never look back!!
