We are considering buying a log home in southern Minnesota. The home was built in 1977. The exterior looks as if it has been allowed to weather naturally. If there was a finish on it it's long gone. We love the natural color the wood has taken on. But, we are wondering if we buy what we should do, if anything, to protect the wood?


Give it a LIGHT bath with Log Wash and apply a good coat of Shell Guard borate. Call 800-564-2987 to purchase and get more help.
