Product Description

Outlast Q8 Log Oil

Outlast Q8 Log Oil - Best Price + Free Shipping and Fast Delivery!

Outlast® Q8 Log Oil is one coat oil based product that is a EPA registered wood preservative designed to protect against mold, mildew,rot and insects (termites, powder post beetles) on log homes and on wood siding. It provides maximum water repellency and sheer trans-oxide color with one coat coverage. Outlast Q8 Log Oil is a totally non-film forming EXTERIOR treatment that will never crack or peel. The solution penetrates into the wood to provide protection, not just on the surface, but also deep into the wood cell structure.

What really sets Outlast® Q8 Log Oil apart is that it is more than just a stain, it is also a preservative!

  • Wood Preservative Registered with the EPA (99% of other stains lack wood preservative capabilities)
  • Penetrates deep into the wood and will never crack or peel
  • Protect against insect infestation and wood rot
  • Highly effective water repellent
  • Provides effective UV protection
  • Prevents mold and mildew growth
  • Works great on log homes, log siding, decks, and fences
  • Prevent wood boring insects including carpenter bees with the NBS30 Stain Additive (see below)
  • Delivery within 1-3 business days for most of the U.S.

Coverage: 150 - 300 Square Ft per gallon

Optional: Outlast NBS30 Insect Additive

Outlast NBS30 Looking to control that very common Carpenter Bee problem? Outlast® NBS30 will deter and inhibit insects from burrowing through or crawling on surfaces. NBS 30 Additive is effective in controlling crawling and nesting activity on painted or stained surfaces to which it has been added. Ants, cockroaches, beetles, mites, spiders, fleas, ticks, silverfish, dirt daubers, bees and wasps will not crawl on, nest on or burrow through coatings treated with NBS 30 Additive. Made from all natural ingredients 100% derived from EPA exempt plant oils. One additive bottle is good for 5 gallons.

Optional: Kleenstart Cleaner 1 Quart

Outlast Kleenstart

Proper wood prep is a critical first step to successful penetration of the Outlast Q8 Log Oil. Outlast Kleenstart Cleaner is the recommened cleaner prior to applying Outlast Q8 Log Oil. Kleenstart will clean mold and mildew and remove mill glaze. One quart makes 5-8 gallons and cleans up to 1200 square feet of surface area.

KleenStart is an oxygenated granular cleaner that mixes in hot or cold water. Mix it up, spray with a pump-up garden sprayer, leave it on for about 10 minutes, and rinse with a pressure washer. Kleenstart often does most of the scrubbing for you!

More Info

Preparing the Surface

Great Preparation is the Key to Application Success!

Q8 Log Oil penetrates and protects. The surface must be porous free of mill glaze, dirt, and previous coatings. Outlast Kleenstart is recommended prior to the initial application of Q8 Log Oil and subsequent applications. The better the preparation of the wood the longer the Q8 Log Oil treatment will last.

Wood Preservative

Wood preservatives are toxic to wood damaging organisms like termites, powder post beetles, and fungus.

Q8 Log Oil is an EPA approved wood preservative so applications of a borate treatment is not necessary prior to applying Q8 Log Oil.


Wood preservatives do not protect against non wood eating insects. Ants, cockroaches, beetles, mites, spiders, fleas, ticks, silverfish, dirt daubers, bees and wasps will not crawl on, nest on or burrow through coatings treated with NBS 30 Additive.

Mold, Mildew, and Algae

Q8 Log Oil alone stops decay, mold, and fungi. Use Outlast Mold-Buster when additional protection is required to control surface mold, mildew, and algae growth on the coating. It is recommended for use with coatings applied in high humidity environments and for applications where mildew has been a problem in the past.

Applying Q8 Log Oil

Outlast Q8 Log Oil can be applied during a wide range of weather conditions. Q8 Log Oil will not penetrate as well on wet or cold logs/wood. Below 50 degrees, Q8 Log Oil will become too thick to pump through a pump sprayer and may require hand brushing. Streaking of pigment may result if it rains within 36 hours of treatment. Simply re-spray the surface with more product, let it sit for 15 minutes and smooth out any streaks with a stiff paintbrush. Apply as much Q8 Log Oil as the wood will absorb. Clean tools with dish detergent and warm water or mineral spirits.

Caulking and Chinking

As wood dries it is natural for cracking and checking to occur. It is recommended to fill any gaps larger that 1/4" with caulk. Cracks/checks less than 1/4" should be flooded with Q8 Log Oil.

If applying a sealant after Q8 Log Oil wait for it to cure which is 2+ weeks prior to caulking/chinking. Curing time can vary with weather conditions. Q8 Log Oil can cure in 2 weeks with many warm and dry days. Low temperatures, humidity, and wet weather can lengthen the cure time.

When time does not allow for proper curing time, the caulking/chinking should be done prior to applying Q8 Log Oil.

Samples and Testing

We always recommended performing a 1 coat color test. Samples are available for color testing. Wait 24 hours after applying a Q8 Log Oil sample before observing the color. The color will lighten as the product dries.

Outlast is a Great product!
May 30, 2018

Outlast is a Great product! I ordered your "Outlast Q8 Log Oil with NBS 30 additive", last the year. My log home sits where there is little to no shade and receives the maximum UV damage each summer.. In addition a had a terrible bee and ant problem as well as other nesting insects. Using your products has made this summer almost bee/insect free. I ordered more to treat my decks this summer. Great log home product!
By far the best product I have used
May 16, 2018

Arrived within 48-hrs. Used several products, but Q8 has, by far, been the best product I have used. I apply with a backpack sprayer and brush in tight areas.
I highly recommend this company
May 01, 2018

This is my first time buying from Western Log Homes Supply and my experience with them was superb...from instant chatting online, to my questions answered quickly and professionally, to follow up emails and quick service...I highly recommend this company to buy this wonderful product!
Outlast Q8 looks great on my log cabin
April 09, 2018

The Outlast Q8 looks great on my log cabin. My ten year old cabin was looking very worn and dull. I applied 2 coats of the Q8 and now the cabin looks brand new! Like it was just built. Thanks so much.

Quality product easily available
February 02, 2018

Glad to have such a quality product easily available-- our shack really soaked it in!
Great Customer Service Before During and After
January 25, 2018

We love the product we were scared that even the clear would stain the logs too dark for us - but it didn't - it highlights them and made them just beautiful it brought the grain out in the poplar logs. The additives took care of all the bugs also. We plan to redo this year also as last year was the first time these logs were treated and then hope not again for 4-5 yrs. Great customer service before during and after :)
It worked very well -- I was very pleased
January 24, 2018

It worked very well -- I was very pleased. Easy to mix in the insect formula, easy to apply with sprayer and the rush work, easy clean-up. Thanks!
I'll be recommending the Q8 log oil
January 24, 2018

My contractor, Kyle Mickel clear coated the garage and stained the house (new construction) last summer. So far so good. He will be clear coating the house this summer. I hope to not have to do anything for many years to come. I have two foot overhangs that helps protect the siding. The sun is the culprit because I have the forest cut back to reduce moisture. I have two friends that will be stripping their log homes to restrain. I'll be recommending the Q8 log oil.
FAST shipping, great prices!!! Fantastic Product!
January 23, 2018

The Q8 log oil has been fantastic. Application couldn't be any easier, just spray and back brush! Two days after application we had some heavy rain and it just rolled off the wood like water on a duck!! Blended nicely where I left off and then started to finish the side a few weeks latter. Still have more staining to do this spring and definitely will be purchasing more through Log Home Supply!!! FAST shipping , great prices!!!
Quality and service are of the highest standards!
January 12, 2018

I was very happy with all aspects of the product. The application was very easy. Using a pump sprayer was the best application for my logs. The logs used in my home/cabin are very large. Ranging from 14"-22" in diameter. Clean up was very easy. All of the aforementioned is due, in most part, to a good "log prep". I will be using this product in the future. Quality and service are of the highest standards.
Appreciate the help!
January 05, 2018

I appreciate the help with the Q8 log oil. It was easily applied and clean up was a breeze. Thank you for sending the samples and I look forward to seeing how the Q8 log oil lasts.
High Quality Product
December 17, 2017

It worked very well. So far it appears to be a high quality product.
We love it! Shipped Super Fast!
December 16, 2017

We love it! It was recommended by our white cedar log garage kit supplier. You folks shipped it out super-fast and it was very easy to work with. The anti-bug and mildew additives have kind of a nice scent and the color lightened up nicely after a while. I especially liked the "no lap marks" and the soap-and-water cleanup. We put one coat on the new logs last fall and will follow up with the second coat this spring (still have a fresh pail). Five gallons was perfect for the 26' x 28' garage.
Effective against carpenter bees, plan to take your advice
December 14, 2017

Was able to complete the painting of the cabin before it got too cold. The covering went on easily and was effective against carpenter bees, but next season will determine how effective. I plan to take your advice and paint again next spring to ensure maximum absorption into the wood. The previous owners knew nothing about caring for a log home
Revived and Protected!
December 11, 2017

I applied the Q8 log oil on a restoration log home this summer. The house is approximately 80-100 years old with hand hewn tamarack logs and hasn't been inhabited since the mid 1980's. We hand sanded the logs and applied the Q8 oil which seems to have revived and protected the wood with one to two coats on the south exposure. It was easy to apply with a small sprayer and seems to be working well in our Western Montana winter.
Love so far!
December 09, 2017

We love the log oil so far. We are still in process of getting all siding on fighting thru Indiana weather. What we have done still looks really good. We are very happy with the product.
Love the protection it gives ALL wood, No peeling, No scraping
December 01, 2017

I am no stranger to Q8 Log oil. I have been using it for about 6 years. I have a log home and garage and a number of woodbuildings on my property. I love the protection the oil gives all wood not only my logs. When I bought my home it had been neglected. I stripped my home using an osborn type wheel and applied Q8 about 6 years ago. Last year I gave it a light power wash and applied another coat of Q8. The wet snow and rain just bead up on my Logs. No peeling , no scraping, just apply with a garden sprayer and back brush. It doesn't get easier.
Great Customer Support! Went on with Ease!
November 11, 2017

We are very happy with the stain color and it went on the logs with ease. We are excited to see how long the product lasts before we need to re-stain. Customer support during the purchase was also great.
Comes in no time at all! Working well and looking good for 12 years!
November 01, 2017

We built our log home 12 years ago along with a log sided barn and have used the Q8 Log oil since the first application. It works well and looks great. Whenever we order it comes in no time at all. We will continue to use Q8 Log Oil.
Lets the log breath and penetrates into the wood
October 21, 2017

I like using the Q8 Log Oil because it lets the log breath and penetrates into the wood. This helps resist insects and protect against weather damage. It also gives the log a fresh look which makes the appearance of the cabin look new.
Went on smoothly
October 17, 2017

After cleaning the logs & waiting a few days, we applied the log oil with a garden sprayer. It went on smoothly, we waited a few minutes, then back brushed. very nice looking job.
Works great easy to apply didn't change color of wood!
October 13, 2017

Works great!! Very simple and easy to apply. I used the CLEAR and it didn't change the color of my wood. Thanks!

Highly Recommend!!
September 04, 2017

We used the Q8 Oil on our new log cabin and it worked just great for us..It made the logs appear a wonderful warm color. We highly recommend the product.
Water just beads off!!
August 21, 2017

We loved the Q8 oil! The color we chose was perfect and the oil is awesome. We have used it in our deck beans as well and the water just beads off of them. Will be order more soon to finish the projects.
Best Product on the Market!
August 14, 2017

We have tried and tested many different products for the logs in our new home. There have been countless long conversations about the pros and cons of each one, and that none were satisfactory. When we discovered Q8 log oil, all that changed. This product has great consistency and balance. It can highlight the wood grain contrast and provide, and in our case, without any semi-transparency effect, just clear beautiful grain. We were able to combine the Outlast medium and dark, 4:1, to get the perfect color we desired. I love how easy it is to apply. The more over-brushing, the better it looks. Thanks for the best product we have found on the log home market!
Easy to apply, looks good, easy clean up
August 04, 2017

Really like the q8 log oil. Sprayed with pump sprayer and back brush. Very easy to apply and looks good! Clean up was pretty easy too.
Outstanding additives for mold and insects!
August 02, 2017

The Q8 log oil has been outstanding, especially with the additives for Mold and Insects. Our log home manufacturer recommends the product and we have been nothing but happy with it.
Easy application No lap marks
July 31, 2017

The Q8 log oil is working well for me. I am using it on pine board and batten siding. I am staining the boards and battens before installing. It is very easy to apply evenly with no lap marks showing up. I am restoring a 100+ years old barn. Not sure exactly how old the barn is- it was there when my Great Grandpa bought the place in 1909.
