Our log home had been power washed to clean and prep for new finish. The new finish failed I guess because we power washed and should not have. It looks like the logs were not dryed out completely when new finsih was applied. If we corn blast the finish off how long should we wait to apply an new finish to make sure the logs have dried out enough?
Thanks for your help.


I'm going to guess that it has been at least a couple of years since youpowerwashedand stained. If that is the case you should be able to corn cob blast and stain right away. If not you should wait 1-3 months of good dry weather from time of powerwashing before staining.
