I frequently get demands from log property owner that say, "I wish to have my log home cleaned up and stained." When I ask precisely what do they imply, I generally hear" I want the logs cleaned and re-coated. At this moment I request for a couple of minutes of their time to discuss the following.
Depending upon the kind of surface that is in the logs and its condition will determine which procedure needs to be used to prepare the wood for re-coat. This is where log home repair can in some cases get a bad name.
The general rule is, if you have a latex stain or paint that remains in GOOD condition, then most likely a great wash with a chlorine service will do. If it is an oil stain, there are lots of aspects to consider.
A lot of times I have contacted us to a log home plastic sheds an alternative to wooden that has been stained (with an oil stain) just 2 to 3 years prior. As a guideline, the issue with the stain is among 2 things.
Initially, the stain was placed on a recently built home that most likely had "green" or damp logs and was not appropriately cleaned up and prepped to get the surface.
