I was told when I built my cypress log home that I should not paint the outside of the house to allow the logs to breath and allow moisture to escape. Is this true should I continue to use a stain or is it actually safe to paint if I decide to do that?


DO NOT use paint. If you want the painted look, but the qualities of stain use a solid latex stain. I prefer Sherwin Williams Woodscapes Solid.
