If you’re a horse farm owner or barn builder, you know how crucial it is to select the right finishes for the wood in all structures on your farm. Equine facilities have unique surface finishing requirements that need attention to best solutions, including attention to detail and beauty, but also with regard to infection control, mold remediation, and simply providing a functional wood surface to fulfill any design vision. Waterlox Tung Oil Finishes can reflect the level of your care about the facilities you provide for your horses, and your clients.

Why Waterlox Is the Best Wood Finish for All Wood in Horse Barns

We believe the absolute best wood finish system for a horse barn combines Zar Oil Stain with Waterlox Marine Sealer in the first, and possibly the second waterproofing coat. The reason? Waterlox Tung Oil Wood Finish not only ensures extreme waterproofing but also magnifies the natural beauty of the wood. Unlike common finishes like spar varnish (specifically Helmsman Spar Varnish from Minwax), Waterlox delves deep into the wood, giving it a natural, hand-rubbed appearance while ensuring a finish that can stand up to scratches, spills, and stains.
