Testing Highlights: What To Know Before You Scroll

On left side of the panel is Sashco’s Capture® and Cascade®. On the right side of the panel is the competition. Panels were placed on exposure racks in Sashco's mile-high backyard just outside Denver, CO. They were left outside day and night for 18 full months, facing due south at a 45 degree angle to maximize UV and weather exposure. (Remember: Sashco's mile high elevation means 25-30% more UV radiation than at sea level.) 

The evidence of poor stain performance speaks for itself. It shows as discoloration, peeling, excessive cracks in the wood, or gray wood. The panels in this study show what many homeowners and contractors alike have known for years:
Sashco's Capture® and Cascade® log stain system really performs.

“I revisited a log home about 11 years after I did the original refinish work with Capture/cascade system. The clear coat was still intact and beading up water. This was when I realized this is the best choice for all of my customers.”

“Our log cabin truly is a work of art, like a painting, and the paints we used on our easel were from Sashco. After four years, we just had our first maintenance application of Cascade. Only having to apply the clear-coat of Cascade was a money saver and made the cabin's wood 'pop' again.
