The Sansin Classic water-based formula will keep logs and big timbers beautiful for literally decades. This three-coat penetrating formula both enhances the natural beauty of the wood as well as allows the wood to breath. This is critical for a log home because the sheer size of the wood demands a coating that doesn't seal moisture in.
👍 We recommend Classic for log homes.
💡 Classic is typically a three-step system but can be applied in a number of different combinations in order to achieve your desired look and colour. Please consult with a Randall's specialist if this is your first time using this product.
Classic 1: This is the first coat in the Classic system when natural wood tones or translucent colours are desired. This product calls for 100% of the colour formula.
Classic 2: This is the intermediate coat in the Classic system for natural wood tones and translucent colours, or the first and second coat for saturated or ultra saturated colours. This product calls for 100% to 50% of the colour formula.
Classic 3. This is the final coat of the Classic system and calls for 25% of the colour formula. It is also used as the maintenance coat which can be applied every few years.
*A digital stain swatch is a rough estimation of the colour. Colour may vary depending on texture, grain, colour, porosity and type of wood.
Paint Quantity Calculator
1 gallon of paint will cover ~400 sq ft. Whereas 1 quart of paint will cover ~100 sq ft. To get a rough estimate of how much paint you will need, run through these steps:
1. Add together the length of each wall.
2. Multiply the sum of the wall length by the height of the wall to find the total square footage of your room.
3. Subtract 20 square feet for each door and 10 square feet for each window.
4. Multiply that final room square footage number by 2 to get the total square footage for 2 coats of paint.
5. Divide the number by 400 (gallon = 400 sq ft) to determine the number of gallons you need to purchase for 2 coats of paint.
