How do I Preserve the Life of this Kayak Rack?


While we do build our Log Kayak Racks to last for many years, they are not indestructible. In the same way that you take precautions with other valuables and possessions, there are steps that can help preserve the life of a kayak rack. At Log Kayak Rack, our team does the leg work during the manufacturing process to ensure a long life expectancy. Now it’s your turn to help preserve this protective storage unit for your kayak.

Key Ways to Preserve Your Cedar Kayak Rack

To help protect our long lasting northern white cedar kayak racks, we encourage our customers to practice the following key steps:

● Raised Legs – Raising the legs of your Log Kayak Rack on something similar to a landscaping block will help keep your storage rack dry. Having constant contact with the moist ground can cause weakened wood and rotting.
● Utilize a Finish – Applying a finish to your Log Kayak Rack can help provide added protection for your kayak rack. An added finish can help protect your rack from excessive sunlight, weathering and regular aging. Let our team provide you with a finish upgrade before purchasing or apply a finish to your rack on your own. We have found that breathable finishes extend the life of these kayak rack’s the most. Letting the existing northern white cedar wood age a bit before you apply the finish is ideal so that the stain you choose can soak in thoroughly.
