Just purchased 150 yr old hand hewn tamarack log home in northern Wisconsin. The house is finished with Sikkens butternut. It needs restaining this year. Has some insect infestations. Can painter power wash, treat with borate and restain?


A LIGHT wash, not a true power wash. Save your money on the borate since it can only be applied to bare wood to work. Be careful of painters that do not work strictly on log homes.
