Pine log siding oozing pitch. One board is almost entirely white. What is the best way to get it off? Home is 4 yrs old with Sikkens 3 step finish.


You can take a heat gun to soften it, then scrape with a putty knife, but it will probably come back the next time the sun hits that wall. Not much you can really do to stop it. The wood was to green when stained the first time.

If you corn cob blast down to the bare wood and let it dry for ? : Then borate with glycol base and stain would that help. I have a similar problem at a home we are looking to purchase. Thanks
