Vermont Natural Coatings Penetrating Water Proofer is a natural wood preservative product that seals wood from the inside, extending the life of the wood by controlling moisture, thus reducing mold and decay. 

Juniper is nature’s strongest natural wood preservative. We infuse it into our Water Proofer to create a long lasting, zero VOC water proofer that is safe for people, pets and the environment.

More About This Product

  • Safe for use over water
  • Protects against moisture, mold and mildew
  • Invisible when dry; allow wood to gray naturally
  • Available in quarts, gallons and five gallon pails
  • Easy application & cleanup
Surface PreparationIf new wood, be certain surface is thoroughly cleaned before applying. For pressure washing, do not exceed 1200 psi and use wide-spray nozzle. Allow to dry completely. For previously coated material, be sure all loose finish is removed, then clean thoroughly. Test to ensure wood  is able to accept finish by checking if water beads on surface, or soaks into wood. If water soaks in, the wood it is able to accept Penetrating Water Proofer.
  • Stir well prior to use.
  • Apply with a brush and/or spray equipment without thinning to a properly prepared surface. Brush in any puddles of product on the surface.
  • Apply two coats. The second coat must be applied before the first coat dries. If the first coat fully dries it will not allow the second coat to penetrate. No sanding is required between coats.
  • Coat all wood surfaces and end-grain and apply in temperatures between 45° – 100°F and relative humidity of 40%-60%. Coating all surfaces increases the stability of the wood. High humidity or low temperature may lengthen dry time.
Drying/Curing TimeUnder normal conditions, surface will be ready for foot traffic in 2-3 hours after second coat. One gallon will cover approximately 300 sq. ft. depending on porosity of wood.

Vermont penetrating waterproofer with Juniper

Excellent. Water was not absorbed by wood. Nice to see the water beading on top. No color change. Used this to allow the natural grey color. Delivered to northern coastal Maine in two days! installers very pleased with application—I was very pleased with how fast it went! Now I’m going to buy products for interior staining and conditioning. Love that this stuff exists. Maureen ter Poorten

Cedar looks beautiful

I am adding some cedar tongue and groove planks that I up-cycled to a powder room. I was pleasantly surprised when the cedar still looked and smelled like cedar after I used the Penetrating Water Proofer. It’s exactly what I was hoping for. Some extra protection to keep the cedar looking great without adding unnecessary chemicals to the space.

Excellent Eco/Garden friendly treatment

Easy to use, nice smell, and completely safe for garden veggie crops.!! Two quick coats penetrated smoothly and dried nicely overnight. Going to extend the life of ****** above ground Cedar boards even further than originally planned. Looks good too!
