Real Protection on Real Wood

To protect you natural wood sidings from the harmful effects of moisture and the sun, you need a finish that works with the natural characteristics of the wood.

Our line of VX Pro Factory Finishes are environmentally compliant waterborne coatings engineered to both compliment and protect the wood by blocking UV rays and preventing moisture from accessing the wood. When properly applied in our factory setting, the VX Pro Finish will offer years of maintenance-free performance and provide a finish that stays “looking new.”

The VX Pro Finish is VOC-free for the ultimate in environmental compliance and is offered in a semi-transparent finish to allow the beauty of the natural characteristics of the wood to shine through. We offer six semi-transparent exterior wood finishes that provide exceptional beauty, performance, and UV protection (pictured below) along with color-coordinating caulk from two leading suppliers.

3-Coat System

The base coat seals the wood to protect it from harmful UV Rays and damage from moisture. It not only promotes dimensional stability, it also provides an excellent surface for top coat applications. We then apply two layers of the top coat to fortify the UV resistance and to obtain the final desired color.

Pseudo Elastic Properties

Our layers of protection expand and contract naturally with the wood to prevent any cracking, peeling and flaking of the finish.

No Chalking or Fading

Unlike other finishes, our product protects from UV damage preventing the onset of a degraded finish.

Environmentally Complimentary and Safe

The unique waterborne nature of the VX Pro System permits easy cleanup with water while the finish is still wet. Our ZERO HAP (Hazardous Air Pollutants) CONTENT makes the VX Pro System the choice for safety and the environment and gives you the flexibility to distribute and store the product without hazardous material restrictions.

Proven Performance

VX Pro has undergone both extensive laboratory and field application testing. Independent Lab Testing recognizes the VP Pro Factory Finish System as having the best weathering characteristics of any finish in its class!

What Our Customers Say About VX Pro

“I have recently had an opportunity to take a tour of the Lake States plant where they manufacture and prefinish their own siding.  The process they use is second to none, and the quality of the products are top of their field.  I have been installing their products with the VX Pro Factory Finish for over 10 years and those projects still look like the day I installed them.  I will only use Lakes States products for this reason, and I would recommend to anyone they do the same.”

Jason Price, Owner, Price Construction (General Contractor)

“We have been selling VX Pro prefinished products from Lake States Lumber since the beginning.  The finish looks beautiful, and the durability is second to none.  VX Pro is the only prefinished wood siding that we recommend!”
Eric Elhardt, Lakeside Lumber & Hardware Inc. (Retail Lumber Yard)

“We have tried most of the prefinishers in our local market and after doing so, we choose Lake States VX Pro Finish for many reasons.  The durability and performance of the stain along with the technology, science and equipment used in their local plants is top-notch.  We wouldn’t have it any other way. We like to partner with as many local companies and products as possible and Lakes States is one of our favorites.” 

Nick Zeman, Chief Operating Officer, All Around (General Contractor)

“I have been building lake homes in Northern Minnesota for over 30 years. We have tried many products to finish wood siding over these years and VX Pro Finish has been a far superior product in every respect. The durability of this product is second to none.”

Dan Meyer, Chief Executive Officer, Custom Carpentry (General Contractor)
