We have a log home about 20 years old and are planning to corn blast the wood and restain. I was told it wasn't good to corn blast the cedar portion of the home--just the logs. Is this true? If so, why and how should we remove the stain from the cedar? TSP product with power washing?


It will be fine to corn cob blast the cedar wood on your home. You just have to go over it a little quicker than the logs. You will have to experiment.

What is corn cob blasting?
Our Panabode at the lake was built in 1956. the interior is as beautiful as the day it was built. The exterior is badly stained and weathered. The original exterior finish was Pratt&Lambert Okene Preservative. I don't think it was ever varnised. what can we do to remove dark water stains and then how do we refinish it? Our cottage is located west of Edmonton in Alberta. Any assistance you can give would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.
