Bellingham Professional Finishes Offers Sansin’s High-Performance, Low-VOC Wood Finishes to Home Builders & DIYers in Western Washington

The Sansin Corporation, a global leader in environmentally friendly, high-performance wood protection, announced today that Bellingham Professional Finishes, located at 3924 Irongate Road, Suite C, in Bellingham, Wash., now carries the company’s exterior and interior line of wood finishes. The products are available to Bellingham’s contractor and DIY customers.

Bellingham Professional Finishes specializes in natural and painted finishes for whole house interiors and exteriors, including cabinetry, millwork, and furniture. Miranda Teel, co-owner of Bellingham Professional Finishes, said her company has spent the last two years looking beyond the industry’s standard coatings and demoing many leading products to discover alternatives for interior and exterior coatings that are environmentally friendly and high-performing.

“Our everyday decisions about the products and practices we use are guided by our commitment to environmental consciousness, and Sansin aligns with that value” said Teel. “We’re proud to offer the Sansin products not only to the high-end homebuilders we work with, but also to eco-conscious homeowners in our community.”

Sansin’s Managing Director Sjoerd Bos said Sansin is a good fit for the coastal community. “Sansin wood stains are specifically formulated to stand up to the wet coastal environment in Bellingham,” said Bos. “We look forward to working with a top-notch, discerning company like Bellingham Professional Finishes to fill the void for eco-friendly wood protection choices in western Washington.”

Bellingham Professional Finishes custom tints on-site, allowing for tailored color creation for the following Sansin product lines:

  • Exterior Enviro Stains – Sansin’s exterior stains (Classic, SDF, DEC, ENS) protect wood through unique water-borne, penetrating formulas. They contain no harsh or flammable solvents and allow wood to breathe naturally, while inhibiting decay and increasing durability and performance. Exteriors come in a range of captivating colors from naturals and saturated to solid hide.
  • Purity® Interior Stains and Clears – Environmentally friendly interior stains, gels, and clears that harness the power of nano technology to penetrate deep into the wood for uniform color that is vibrant, long-lasting and durable, without high VOCs.
