I just bought a log home and no preventive maintenance has been done to the exterior in quite some time. No log rot was found.

What is the best method, in order, to restore and protect the exterior of my log home?

I am looking for the most economical way possible and plan to do the work myself.

Thank You.


The most economical way for you would be to sand it, but it will take some time. Corn blasting is the fastest way, but is hard for a home owner to do.
