My wife and I just got finished re-staining our log home. We decided to go with Sherwin Williams Woodscapes Solid Color Stain. Although it looks great and covered very well, it has a flat, no sheen appearance as pretty much expected. We were wanting to know if we can add a clear top coat to this particular stain to make it more scuff resistant and add a light sheen to it. I'm not sure if it's ok to clear coat over this stain. If it's ok to clear coat, what product would you recommend?? Thank


I have used the Perma Chink Advanced Topcoat Gloss or Satin over the Woodscapes before and it work great. Call Dave at 800-564-2987 to purchase.

If you applied the top coat gloss would it need to be removed before re staining with solid color stain in the future?
