30 Year old log home, direct sun most of the day. Want to reseal and/or waterproof. Chinking and general condition is very good, don't know if any other restraining was done lived here 3 years


You will want to know what kind of product is on it for compatibility issues. It sounds like it hasn't been stained in many years. If so, it probably needs to be stripped first. Call Mike at 866-670-3020 for help and estimate.

Two years ago I had my cedar logs washed, and two coats of stain...this was in .August. Less than two years later all areas the sun hits was faded out. I used Cabots oil stain. The cost was 10,000 and now the touch up is 800.00. Wrong stain or put on wrong? Too hot or shouldn't have been washed & bleached?
