Question:


I have 2 pine wood log homes in south Texas.
One is 30 years old, the other 25, and both are
in decent shape. I have had a few problems
with rotting and carpenter bees recently
while woodpeckers and bugs getting in have always been an issue. I am wanting to provide for a better seal
Of both structures. Considering a premium
Heavy paint/seal or stucco. Please help me make
the best decision to better seal houses. Thank you !

Answer:

DO NOT use paint. It will seal the logs too tightly and promote rot. I would recommend a light wash and apply two coats of solid stain. I like to use Sherwin Williams Woodscapes for this purpose.
