My fathers log home built with white pine was painted with Rhino Sheild four years ago. At that time the wood was in very good condition. It had been stained since 1995. We now have rotting wood. Rhino Sheild advertises that water can not get in. If water can't get in, how does it get out. I noticed the treatment has cracked and the some of the wood is soft and wet. what is your recomendation.


Blast it off and then grind any remaining material off. Then stain with Life Line for the wood grain look or Sherwin Williams Woodscapes if you want the painted look
