Question:


We corncob blasted our log home and then applied penetreat. We then applied one coat of transformation stain by sashco. We have applied one coat and are noticing an unattractive blotchiness. Can we even this out with the second coat by applying more heavy to the light areas and lighter to the darker areas. I am very frustrated as I have spent a lot of money and cannot afford to have to redo what I have done.

Answer:

This can sometimes happen on media blasted logs. The second application light and heavy may help. If you haven't gone to far you should Osborne brush it then stain. That should help with the blotchy.

My red cedar log cabin was built in 1976. I am the 3rd owner. The 2nd owners painted the exposed wood on the inside with kilz in kitchen, and brown paint everywhere else. Should this be stripped away and resealed so it will last 40+ years? Also how often should the chink be replaced and the outside resealed? Thanks alot for your time.
