On one of the corners of my house the log ends overhang the roof. There is some discolouration there due to the run off from the roof. All the other log ends that overhang at the other corners of the house look great and maintain the same stain color as the rest of the house. I am preparing to restain the logs this summer. What is your suggestion to get the log end back to its original color? Can it be stained over top of?


First, I would cut them all back so that they are 2 or 3 inches in from the drip edge. Sand and stain to match from there.
