"You guys have just raised the bar to what is quite possibly a completely unattainable level! Our shed arrived 15 minutes BEFORE they said the earliest time would be!"
- Cindy (Denver, CO)

SmartSheds, if left unfinished will turn a silvery grey for a rustic, weathered look, which some people prefer. However, the use of a quality stain can enhance both its good looks and its natural durability. It responds beautifully to oil-based stains in your choice of tinted transparent finishes for a natural effect, or lightly pigmented semitransparent finishes. Look for a coating that offers good mildewed and ultraviolet shielding properties as well as additional preservatives to protect it's youthful complexion. Varnishes and other film-forming coatings which can crack and peel and are not recommended for use on Cedar.
