I have a 25 year old poplar (aspen) log structure that has never been treated and is now very grey with weathering/mold. The structure is sound, how can I restore these logs look new? I was thinking water/bleach (3:1), pressure washing, then Cetol log and siding stain.


You can try to use either S-100 or Wood ReNew from Perma Chink. Be sure to allow the wood to dry properly. Corn cob blasting is also an option that will definitly work.
