We trust the experts when it comes to teak wood protection for your decks. Read our short guide for our tips for applying and why Wood Guard is the best choice to protect your teak decks.

WOOD GUARD’S UNPARALLELED BENEFITS

Unlike other wood sealants, Wood Guard leaves no glossy sheen on your teak. All the natural grains and texture still shine through naturally when you treat your natural wood surfaces with Wood Guard.

  • SIMPLE TO APPLY

    Wood Guard sprays on quickly and easily. We recommend applying until the point of rejection, which means you should keep spraying until you see Wood Guard bead up on the surface. Then, allow it to dry!

    EASY TO CLEAN AND MAINTAIN

    Simply wipe up any spills that happen on your Wood Guard-treated decks or flooring with a damp cloth. For more stubborn or heavy soiling, use light soap and water. Reapply once a year!

  • PROTECTS FROM WATER, OIL, AND MORE

    With Wood Guard, you won’t have to worry about stains from water, oil, food, and even suntan oil! Wood Guard creates a water-repellant barrier, giving you enough time to wipe up spills quickly.

    ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY

    As a water-based non-toxic formula, Wood Guard has no odor and little to no VOCs, which makes it easy to apply for boat owners and applicators!

surface prep

At DNA Surface Concepts, the devil’s in the details. The teak detailing on a Center Console was prepped perfectly for Wood Guard’s application. First, a Festool sander was used to smooth out the surface, followed by a light blow to remove any dust.

To fully ensure that the surface was perfectly clean, it was wiped with Isopropyl Alcohol and a clean microfiber cloth and allowed to fully dry. The use of alcohol ensures that all the tiny particulates that come off during sanding are compeltely picked up and removed from the surface. This extra step ensures the surface is completely clean and allows Wood Guard to adhere and bond the best to the teak.

Remember, Wood Guard should only be applied to natural, untreated woods. If there are any existing sealants, oils, or stains on your wood surface, these should be sanded off prior to applying Wood Guard.

“[wood guard is] NICE, TRANSPARENT, GOES ON EASY OF COURSE. I KNOW IT’S GOING TO DRY OUT AND BECOME UNDETECTABLE. I DO LOVE THE PRODUCT”

APPLYING WOOD GUARD IS SIMPLE AND QUICK

In our video below, DNA Surface Concepts is using a small spray bottle of Wood Guard for the deck detail. For the best protection, spray Wood Guard onto a surface until you reach the point of rejection. This means, spray continuously until you see Wood Guard bead up on the Wood Surface. This means the teak has absorbed the maximum amount of Wood Guard possible.

For an even spray, we recommend using a hand pump sprayer. For small scale applications and edges, you can load up a microfiber sponge.

If overspray occurs, simply wipe up any excess Wood Guard.

Allow the treated teak surface to dry. Wood Guard will dry clear and look completely invisible. It starts working as soon as its dry! That’s all there is to it!
