We are building an addition to our log home and have purchased Tim-Bor Professional to pre-treat the pine siding prior to staining. We have also purchased Flood CWF-UV5 Oil. For an extra layer of protection can the Tim-Bor be mixed with the oil stain?


No. The Tim-Bor should only be applied per the label. You should consider a different stain that is a latex stain made for log homes like Life Line or Capture/Cascade. If you must have an oil stain I would recommend Sikkens Log & Siding.
