Currently having my log home restored, i.e. cob blast, borate, stain. Upper level is whole log but lower is half log. I was told that the sanding removed the galvanizing from the nails (half logs) and therefore these cannot be borate treated as it will create black blotches. What do you think?


It is possible, but I would want that borate on there some how. You may have to seal the nail heads first with something.

countersink galvanized nails and plug, also consider ACQ compatable nails.
