What are the ingredients in VNC's Penetrating Water Proofer with Juniper?
VNC’s Penetrating Water Proofer uses juniper as a natural wood preservative to stabilize the wood and reduce mold, mildew, and decay. It protects from the inside out and doesn’t leave a topcoat. Vermont Natural Coatings uses a technology called PolyWhey, a name that derives from whey protein. Whey protein is a waste stream of cheese making, and it’s recycled to be used as a non-toxic binder. This renewable resource replaces chemical binders found in typical paints and finishes.

How often do you have to re-apply?
VNC’s Penetrating Water Proofer should be re-applied every two to three years for the best waterproofing and protection of exterior wood surfaces. High-traffic areas like decks should be re-finished more often, but you can take a little more time with fences and siding.
Do I need to use a sealer on top of VNC's Penetrating Water Proofer?
No - you don’t need to apply a sealer on top of the waterproofer. VNC's Water Proofer is designed to waterproof the wood surface so other liquids won’t soak in - that includes finishes, stains, and paint. So anything you try to apply on top won’t stay on.
Will it change the look of my wood?
VNC’s Penetrating Water Proofer Infused With Juniper won’t change the color of your wood, but it will slightly deepen the natural appearance and make your grain pop. The clear finish allows the wood to fade and grey naturally.
Does Vermont Natural Coatings Penetrating Water Proofer work?
Yes, it works. This is a common question for products like this one that are "no-VOC" and are safe for people, pets, and the environment. VNC's Penetrating Water Proofer Infused With Juniper waterproofs exterior wood surfaces for two to three years, which is as long or even longer than more chemical-laden alternatives.
