hired contractor to take old stain off 12 year old log home.He used 2500psi oower washer and blasted away finish of my logs,he did no sanding,applied borate the next day and then applied Sikkens Log and Siding right over the borate. Is there ANY chance this work was properly done in any asspect of the work?


I recommend waiting at least one month after a heavy power wash. If the borate had any glycol in it he should have waited a minimum of two weeks. If it was a powder based it would be OK the next day if dry.
