    Comments about 2015 Flagship Varnish:

    used this to refinish teak as well as varnish a new cedar companionway door i made. took to both surfaces extremely well and came out with a glossy thick appearance after 3-4 coats. i sanded lightly between coats with 220-grit. already gotten some compliments on the work!
    make sure your surfaces are completely ready before you begin work, as this stuff will highlight not only beautiful grain but also deep sanding marks and imperfections

    Pros

    • Color retention
    • Durable
    • Ease of use
    • Excellent gloss
    • Repels water

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Residential doors

      Comments about 2015 Flagship Varnish:

      I've always used Flagship Varnish as my preferred coating for residential entrance doors and exterior woodwork. It has superior sheen and takes multiple coats with ease. Leaves a mirror like finish after only 3 coats and lasts for up to three years before more coats need to be added. I would never use anything else and I can't think of anything that isn't great about it. I recommend it to everyone.
