Jatoba hardwood siding finishing options.
Even if you plan to allow your Jatoba siding to weather to a silvery gray patina, putting a coating of a UV inhibitive finish on exterior wood is an excellent idea. You can still let your siding weather out eventually, but a UV protectant sealer helps your hardwood siding adjust to its new environment. It also helps minimize the potential for surface checking.
For an oil based finish, Penofin Hardwood Formula works very well. Penofin will weather off eventually, depending on your site conditions. But before it does, Penofin helps protect your wood while it is seasoning and adjusting to its new home.
For a water based finish, Seal Once, with a semi-transparent tint, is another beautiful exterior wood finish option. The semi-transparent tints contain UV inhibitors that will help protect your Jatoba siding as it seasons in place.
