Exterior Wood Stain Considerations
Webinar Begins In
About the Sponsor
In 2004 Buffalo Lumber got found on the internet for wood siding. From that day to this I have spent 8 hours a day 5 days a week talking to wood lovers about their projects. I have talked with over 20,000 them. Their love, their stories, their excitement and unfortunately, their pain motivated Buffalo Lumber to create these webinars to extend our education content beyond our customer base. This information is vitally needed at the design stage, so we want to inform architects of what we're learning on the front lines.
