We have a log home in north Idaho built is 2001 and an addition put on it in 2006. We finished the exterior with "Severe Weather Log Cabin Natural Wood Finish made by Enterprise Paint Co. a division of Valspar, and purchased at Lowes". This was a linseed oil based product applied in 3 coats yielding a smooth gloss finish. Valspar has discontinued the product and has no recommendation for a follow on product. I'm looking for a compatible top coat product for a touch up. Any ideas? Thanks


My opinion would be to strip it off if it is Linseed Oil based. Try calling Timeless Wood Care Products at 800-564-2987. They may have something for you that will work.
