We bleached and TWP'd our oak log home with Cedar tone color 5 years ago. It isn't discolored we just want to recoat it to keep protecting it. TWP says we can't recoat over an existing coat. Isn't that possible ?


I am not a big fan of the TWP, but I don't know why you couldn't put another coat over it. You sure they don't mean an existing coat of a different product? And FYI - do not use bleach for a prep wash. Call Dave at 800-564-2987 for the proper materials.

Why shouldn't it be ok to use a bleach type wash on exterior of log cabin?

I need to recoat a 30 year old log cabin but want to clean it first before I re-stain. What should I clean it with? The logs are generally in good shape other than fade.
