We have bought a ranch in Texas with a 1986 D-log home. It has weathered silver (stain is gone) on most of one side, and the other 3 are good to patchy. It also has some test areas of various odd stain colors. We are going to use SWms Woodscape solid stain and Energy Seal caulk. Which is first - stain or caulk? Do we remove the old caulk or caulk over it? We have not found a local cob blasting Co-not many log homes in this area. In lieu of blasting....what prep is essential. We're doing


I would Osborne brush the entire structure first to remove any loose material that is still on the logs. Give it a bath with Log Wash, caulk with the Energy Seal then 2 coats of the Woodscapes. Call Mike at 866-670-3020 for help and estimates if you are looking for help with this project.
