House built in 1976.two story, peaked, Greatroom has exposed sawn beams along all corners and along ridge line. A wall of windows facing south has stain damage as well . Old water stains have left dark abstract patches on most of the surface. The water problem was corrected long ago but the stains were never addressed. What can be done now ? Chemical or physical solutions ? Will need a contractor because of height and extent of work.

thanks for ANY ideas or links !!!


Normally, old water stains like that cannot be removed because they are so deep into the wood fiber. Try experimenting sanding somewhere inconspicuous. I do not know of any chemical that will help.
