Question:


We are getting ready to put log siding on our home. We currently have all the lumber. How should I prepare the wood? Stain first with an all weather stain/sealent? Or should we install and then stain after it's on the house? Thank you!

Answer:

You can do it either way. You will have some touch up to do if you stain first then install.

Hi, i just read we can stain our 1/2 log siding after it is on the house, but should we stain it immediately and then apply a sealant? Our builder has ask that we get one with a long warranty and insect repellent.
