Clear Exterior Top Coat

Lifeline Advance works just like the clear-coat on your car to protect the color coat underneath. It extends the life of the finish system while adding depth and highlights to the appearance. It makes your exterior walls easier to keep clean.

Lifeline Advance has the right permeability to keep the film breathable while repelling liquid water.

Lifeline Advance is the second component in our exterior wall finish system that includes a limited warranty when used with Lifeline Ultra-2 and Lifeline Ultra-7.

five star Stuart C. (04/07/2020) - "The gloss topcoat has kept all the logs and siding stain on our place like new for 14 years and counting. Simply sprayed it on and brushed in about every 6 years. About as much work as washing your car."

five starSusan G (09/06/2018) - "I have an older log home that was plagued by carpenter bees and these teenie wasps that I was told were aphid wasps. The logs were untreated for more than 30 years and last summer a good friend cleaned, notated, stained with your semi transparent stain and Lifeline Advance Topcoat. We have seen a huge difference in the carpenter bee population. Thank god!!"

five starJon S (09/04/2018) - "This house hadn't received the maintenance it should have for a long time, it amazed everyone that looked at it as I did the job of cleaning it up using Wood ReNew then ShellGuard RTU. Followed by Lifeline Ultra-7 in Carmel and Lifeline Advance Topcoat, the house looks like it's new."

five star D Immell (03/25/2016) - "I have used this clear top coat on my home since I purchased our log home in New Mexico.

Thrilled with the quality of your products. Thanks"

five star B Corvey in AL (09/25/2011) - "We used Lifeline Ultra-7 on our home and I cannot believe how beautiful it looked once the Lifeline Advance was applied. It added a sheen which really made the color pop and added some depth to the color as well. Awesome product to work with."
