We recently stripped the stain of of our log home in preperation for new stain, clear coat, chinking, sealing,ect. Basically we are giving it a full makeover. We have it stripped sanded and ready for stain. The problem is that the weather has turned cold and I'm not sure if we can get it stained without the worry of compremising the life of the stain. Is it ok to leave the logs unstained over the winter? With everything preped we should only have to log wash and maybe bleach the logs in th


Log wash yes, bleach NO! You could apply a borate solution like Shell Guard and then let it go the winter. In the spring give it a light wash with Log Wash, allow to dry and then stain.
