A contractor here in Texas used more sand than cob to take off a solid stain off my log and cedar sided home, and it is very rough textured now. Saschco stain and clear are on now, but is this rough finish a good thing or bad? This is on the softer aeromatic cedar from Central/East Texas.


The rough finish is not a bad thing. It actually gives the finish more to adhere to and could last longer if the maintenance is kept up. The appearance is not always appealing and can be eliminated by sanding, but the sanding process is pricey.
