five star S Tegman in WA (10/06/2016) - "A coat of Prelude Sealer made my uneven pine logs look balanced and consistent. It also made the Ultra 7 much easier to apply. I'm very happy with these products."

five star K Schackmuth in NY (11/05/2013) - "I cannot believe the difference the Prelude made on my freshly blasted logs. Helped keep my stain looking lighter and just looked better all around. Amazing Product."

four half star L Davis in WA (07/22/2013) - "The rep at Perma-Chink recommended Prelude as a primer for my cedar siding. The color came out nice and even just like they said. We are pleased with their recommendation."

four star D Lynch in MN (04/24/2012) - "Prelude worked out as promised when we applied it 4 years ago to our homes after media blasting not disappointed since. It’s allowed the natural tones of the logs to remain, yet there’s no hint of UV damage. It performed as promised."

Project Spotlight

  • A simple comparison of the cost of a gallon of wood stain is a mistake because all stains differ in their lifespan, coverage rate and quality of appearance and protection

    Whether you’re currently building your dream log home or simply checking off tasks on your annual home-maintenance “to do” list, we’re always looking for ways to skimp on expenses around the house.

    But when it comes to putting your best foot forward with a beautifully stained home that’s also protected from the exterior elements, you might want to think twice before being lured in by the lower price tag of a middle-of-the-road finishing product.

    Think about it

  • Lifeline Ultra-7 stands out as THE top-of-the-line, long-lasting finish. Take a look at our tutorial video on proper application technique.
