We bought a log home in the Black Hills that has log railing around the deck. The tops of the railings are blackened and very weathered/splintered. What do we need to do to refinish/protect the railing? i'd hate to have to replace it. The deck gets lots of sun exposure, by the way. Thank you!


Sand them all down back to good clean wood and then apply stain.
