General Finishes Exterior 450
« on: January 05, 2017, 10:01 AM »
Does anybody have any experience with this product? I'm in the process of finishing a front door that's protected from rain by an overhead porch and it gets little to no direct sunlight.

Typically I'd use Sikkens Cetol Door and Window or Epifanes, but I'm finishing the door in my shop, which is an attached garage on my house. I'm concerned about the odor with Sikkens because it's winter I can't vent the shop as well as I can in the summer. Plus, the recoats times for Sikkens are 24hrs.

Exterior 450 will work fine for your situation.  I use it extensively on outdoor projects.  I don't recommend it for anything that will be constantly exposed to direct sunlight and soaking rain.  Filtered sunlight and occasional moisture, no problem.  I apply it with a foam brush.  Super forgiving and good self-leveling properties.  You can apply multiple coats in a single day.
