6 years ago previous owner had log homw stripped and stained with TEP cedar tone. Time to redo, does house need to be blaster or just pwerwashed before restain, also TWP,Penofin Log On or Organiclear for longest lasting in lower michigan climate


I do not really care for any of those stains since most of them have linseed oil in them which will cause black mold to form on your logs over time. You really need to stick with what is on it. A LIGHT wash to remove dust, dirt and pollen and allowed to dry before application of stain.
