Restoration8 has focused it's business over the years on mountain homes, primarily in the Tahoe area. We started are career in restoring Victorian and Tudor homes in Sacramento, which has carried over into an appreciation for restoration, revival, color, ambience and durability of the finished product. There's a lot more to this than paint, but paint (and stain) are the final touch. Understanding getting a keeping a quality coating is understanding the entire construction and materials process and knowing how things might expect to age.

One constant in the journey has been the love of wood, of various species, some native to the West Coast, like Redwood, Doug Fir, Cedar and Pines. We developed the Envirolast (tm)  Stain and Seal+ Wood Stain product line to have our own highest quality, water based "tribrid" oil technology. Our Envirolast is a linseed, acryli-urethane resin system, with a latest German UV technology and super top secret wetting agents to allow deepest penetration into the wood. It's also a highly architectural wood stain and seal. With a small touch of beeswax in the stain itself, it also makes a fantastic interior finish, when an additional dose of our special beeswax additive is added. Envirolast truly does it all! It is even a great masonry sealer, paver sealer and concrete sealer.

Newer to our services are installation and possible refinishing of wood floors as well as granite "puzzle cut" stone flooring. Our interior wall painting includes our own Envirolast Illuminare (tm) Oil Matte Wall Paint, a paint which is muted in sheen, but rich in glorious oil and titanium dioxide to make a most durable, lifetime wall paint. Nothing compares to this wall paint, nothing.

Exterior wood siding and decking restoration and staining remains our core business, with a focus on such things as;


* knowledge of the wood, species, and condition

* offering appropriate colors to client

* assessing the needs of cleaning, brightening and sanding

* applying sufficient coats to achieve good UV protection on sun exposed facings


Shingle Flex ™ Asphalt Shingle Protectant can add 10-15 or more years of life to your roof*, by saturating each shingle with our special Bio Oil + Ultra UV. Shingle Flex penetrates the asphalt binder in your shingles, maintaining the shingles flexibility and pliability, allowing the roof hold water out for many more years than would normally be expected.

*On the average roof when applied every 5 years

Testimonials from our clients

 "I look forward to seeing the final work when I am back in Tahoe. My neighbors told me someone asked them if the house was new construction."

(Billy Bandreth, Tahoma, CA 2021)

I have been using Envirolast XT on our Chalet View Lodge resort in Portola, CA since 2001. It's looks great and the near zero odor is a blessing for our guests. We do all the application in house.

– Bob Hickman

I'm totally impressed with the transformation of my house. The Environlast stain looks stunningly good. The siding and the decks all turned out great. Your team did an amazing job!

We try to keep up with the maintenance on it, often. As Envirolast XT holds up better than anything else we have tried.

My chalet on Squaw Valley Rd. has been maintained with Envirolast XT since 1999. I also have many rooms of Spray-Stone Limestone Plaster and my tenants from San Francisco have asked where they can find this material.

– Arnold Allen

We applied Envirolast on our new redwood fence 4 years ago. Today the fence looks as bright and colorful as day one. All the neighbors say how charming the fence looks.

– Bruce Philapanko

The house looks great with the Envirolast. The color is evened out now and the whole thing looks like it should-so much better than Super Deck!

Just wanted to say we love your product!! we've used it on or own timber farme house porch and on the picnic tables at our local charter school. The stain stands up to the abuse high school kids put it through. Now that's tough stuff!!

Thanks for specifying the Benjamin Moore Advance water based oil on Mom's house. The look and feel is original oil and we appreciate that.

– Joe Valdez

I think the West Shore Tahoe Redwood Cabin looks very nice, thanks for a good job! Also nice of you to tape the rider on as I will have to get new riders to fit that sign.
