I have a cedar log home on Pelee Island in Lake Erie that has been painted for a number of years and has some obvious rot in some logs and old cement repairs. I will be corn blasting it this summer. Can I leave the cabin without a finish on it over the winter to allow it to dry out and repair stain and finish the logs in the spring?


Yes, but you will want to wash it before you stain it with Log Wash to remove mold spores and dirt.
