I have been using superdeck, messmers, and sikkens log oil finishes for some time with good success.

What about acrylic clears on exterior logs over Semi-trans? There was a log restoration company years back applying a clear that turned from foggy to crystal clear (not like the solvent based stuff) after it dried. It was 4 years ago and still looks sharp, even in the high altitude sunny climate of Colorado. They sprayed on the coating, chinking and all. Any ideas on what this product could be?

Any ideas or suggestions on acrylic clears for logs? Thanks all!

For the exterior stainers check out this article from this old house...good stuff.

I just finished a log sided home. For my top coat I used Pittsburgh paints "Sun Proof" Oil/Acrylic hybrid clear coat and it looks great. Really easy to use too. It comes in the can milky but dries clear. If the wood is already sealed you have to let is tack up a bit then brush it in. It has a slight sheen to it when it dries but not too shiny in my opinion. I bought it for about $28. a gallon.
