KRISTI - CHRISTINA LAKE, BC CANADA - IPE DINING TABLE

"We have done numerous projects with Nova's ExoShield Walnut and this is my favorite! This table turned out beautifully. By using off-cuts from our dock, we were able to craft a gorgeous, custom Ipe table for our gazebo eating area. I chose to finish it with Walnut ExoShield to protect it from harsh Canadian winters and hot, bleaching summers. It was so simple to apply and I couldn’t be more thrilled with the outcome!"

Thanks Kristi! We can hardly wait to join you at your lake house. Looks lovely.

STEVE - CASTRO VALLEY, CA - PERGOLA DUAL STAIN FINISHING

“After waiting for wood to dry I have completed my staining. We wanted a vivid contrast of colors on our pergola, so we decided to use a combination of the Natural color and the Black Walnut to create the contrast we were looking for. The project turned out exactly how we had imagined. Superb Product!!!!!”

SEAN - PORTLAND, OR - ADIRONDACK CHAIRS

"I recently refinished my old and tired Adirondack chairs with the ExoShield Premium Hardwood Finish. The chairs were weathered from years of outdoor use. They were an embarrassment to look at and my wife and I were ready to throw them in the garbage when a friend suggested we try the ExoShield Finish.

We are so glad we did! We used the walnut color and now the chairs look better than when first purchased. The finish was so easy to apply. Just brush on, leave for a few minutes and wipe off. I easily completed the project over a weekend with time to spare to go ride my motorcycle. This oil based stain is fantastic and so much better than the brands you can buy from those large “do it yourself” home improvement stores. We now get so many compliments about our chairs and how good they look. Friends ask where can they get such beautiful looking chairs. My answer, go buy some old ones at a garage sale or Craigslist and stain them with ExoShield! You’ll be glad you did."

STEPHEN - MERCER ISLAND, WA - BATU DOCK

"We installed and finished our 2x12 and 2x6 Batu dock trim boards last October using ExoShield Walnut. After seven months, the material still looks perfect. Wow! This stuff really does last. All my previous experience has been with Penofin's Hardwood Formula. This finish blows it away. Thank you!"

BOB - VANCOUVER, WA - IPE DECK REFINISH

"I did need to do a lot of stirring before all the settled pigment was dissolved; after that, no problem keeping everything in suspension. Dry to the touch this morning, less than 20 hours after applying. Odor is minimal! I am very pleased at this point and will keep you posted as time goes on. Thanks for all your help and advice!"

STEVE - PORTLAND, OR - CUMARU DECKING

"In 2018, my Cumaru deck was over ten years old and had lots of gray weathering. I tried deck cleaners and brighteners the year before and it really didn't help much; after finishing, it was back to gray again in 3 months. In 2019, I pressure washed and drum sanded with 24 grit. The sanding definitely got it got it down to fresh, clean & bright wood - original color.

The finishing part was easy compared to all the prep work. I got over 750 SF of coverage from a single gallon of ExoShield. The coarse sanding definitely opened up the grain. The stuff just lays on so easily and really looks fantastic. I couldn't be happier.

I've owned hardwood decks since 1996 and I've tried most of the popular oil based finishes and ExoShield absolutely lasts the longest. I re-coat my deck once per year. My process is to do a light pressure wash after applying 30 Seconds Outdoor Cleaner - I let it dry for at least a week before applying ExoShield so the stain can penetrate deep into the wood. I like the Walnut color the best. It goes on fairly red but looks fantastic after a few weeks."

MICHELLE - DAYTONA BEACH, FL - CEDAR CEILING

"We’ve used a number of products here in Florida where the sun beats down on our deck and have never found a successful product. We decided to try using your Black Walnut ExoShield and it’s performed much better than anything else we’ve tried. Tung Oil is the magic and your product is the magic! In addition, we stained our entire Cedar porch ceiling with Black Walnut ExoShield and then applied a coat of marine Spar Varnish over the ExoShield. We couldn’t be happier with the results and everyone who comes over compliments us on the beauty of our porch ceiling."
