Look at products  made by Sikkens, hands down the best out there.

Stay away from Thompson’s and Cabbot’s.

Arbor Coat from Moore’s is not bad.

I built a 2000sq ft log home for myself back in the early 80's. Best stuff i found for the logs was CWF made by Flood. It sprays on with a garden sprayer, 2 coats wet on wet, turns logs to a nice honey color even if they are a weathered gray. Nice part about it that the logs sucked it right in, even after a heavy rain the logs would be dry in a hour, water rolled right off. Stay away from any of the hard finishes they crack then water gets under them logs turn black and the **** cracks/peels off and looks terrible.

Looking for suggestions on the best clear sealer to use on a log home. I belive the logs are cedar.
