We have a log clubhouse in our neighborhood. We've gotten three bids to fix the rotted wood and restain it (it was painted with latex paint about 8 years go). We've been told that we should start this ASAP (before winter). Should we wait until spring or take out the rotten logs, power wash off the paint and get something on the logs now to help protect the logs that are left? And then in the Spring replace the logs?


I would wait until spring and do it all at one time when the weather gets nice. Nothing is really going to happen over the winter that will hurt it.
