I have a 40 year old red pine log house in upstate NY what type of preservative should I put on the exterior walls--I have used cuprinol 3 or 4 times it seems ok--the logs were untreated when the house was built


If it still has the Cuprinol on it I would recommend sticking with it until you strip the house back to bare wood. When that day comes you should treat it with a borate treatment and then stain it with a good quality latex stain like Lifeline.
