About Exterior Wood Restoration

We focus on the restoration and preservation of a variety of exterior wood structures including cedar shake roofs, decks, fences, log homes, wood siding, pergolas and gazebos.

Why choose Exterior Wood Restoration?

We are the only Cedar Shake and Shingle Bureau (CSSB) certified contractor in the state of Indiana. The CSSB has very stringent guidelines that must be met prior to issuing certification to a contractor. Our company continues to adhere to these guidelines when installing or restoring a shake roof.

Our restoration process is designed to restore your exterior wood to its best possible appearance. Our unique treatment formula we developed personally, Timber Ox® Green, keeps wood protected for years to come.

Timber Ox® Green

Timber Ox® Green was developed by Exterior Wood Restoration in response to our dissatisfaction with current inferior products. This unique formulation contains high solids and wood protecting compounds which do not build up or wash away. As a result, Timber Ox® Green bonds deep inside the wood at a cellular level to deliver long lasting results. It provides durable protection from the damaging effects of UV radiation, water, wood rot, fungal attack, mold, mildew and ozone.

Timber Ox® Green is an agriculturally renewable oil based stain. Since Timber Ox® Green contains agriculturally derived ingredients it qualifies as a bio-preferred stain with the USDA.
