If you’re building a new horse barn, one of the most important decisions you’ll make is choosing the right wood finish system. The wood surfaces in your barn are exposed to moisture, UV rays, and other environmental factors that can cause damage and reduce the sanitation, beauty, and lifespan of your barn’s wood surfaces. That’s why it’s crucial to choose a finish system that is durable, versatile, and easy to maintain. Waterlox is usually the best choice for your new horse barn, and in this blog post, we’ll explain why.

Why Waterlox is Superior to Other Wood Finishes:
Many commonly used finishes like polyurethane or marine spar varnish are poor choices for horse barns. These finishes can peel, crack, or yellow over time, and they require sanding and reapplication. In contrast, Waterlox is a highly effective wood finish system that provides extreme waterproofing while enhancing the natural beauty of the wood. It is made from Tung Oil, which is a natural oil derived from the nuts of the Tung tree. Tung oil is a highly durable oil that has been used for centuries to protect and beautify wood. Waterlox Tung Oil Finishes provide extreme waterproofing while naturally enhancing the beauty of all wood species and surfaces.
