I have a 10 year old log home .the logs are white pine . The interior logs were covered with clear sikkens finish as recommended by log manufacturer when constructed. The logs look great but the knotty pine areas are darkening . A lot of the knots now look black . None of the flat white pine is discolored- only the knotty areas of the logs. Is this a normal color change over time and should this be expected . It appears to be a uniform change thru out the house which is all logs. Thank you for


Yes, over time the wood will darken from UV. The knots could also be darkening from resin seeping out.
