We have a 30 yr old log home in SE Alberta. Our home has had regular maintenance and is now due for a recoat. Our contractor had used a product called Fargo Wood Beautifier and Preservative Naturoil. We are unable to find this product now and are unsure what to use. Our climate is very dry with hot Chinook winds which dry and flake off any type of Sikkens type product. Can you recommend something that will withstand our harsh dry weather?


You should stick with some sort of oil based product. I usually do not recommend putting a different product over something else.

You can buy the Fargo Naturoil from Cloverdale Paint. They recently bought the Fargo company and still produce the log home oil.
