I recently bought a Panabode 1200sf cottage (originally built in 1962) that has not been maintained for the last 11 years.

The wood is in great shape (not rotting, dry and solid) but showing wear and I would like to blast the exterior with glass or corn cob as per the recommendations on this site.

Questions are:

1. Which is better for my application, glass or corn cob?
2. How much media do I need?
3. Where can I get corn cob if required (I am in Ontario)
4. Can anyone recomm


Corn Cob works for most applications, but if there is several old coats of stain it may require the more aggressive nature of crushed glass. you will get 40 to 60 sq ft per bag, depending on the finish being removed. Call 800-564-2987 to purchase corn cob (not sure if he has crushed glass).
