I purchased a log home a hear ago in MI. I need to blast, restain and caulk as well as replace some rotted logs. How often should I plan on restaining, caulking and blasting this house in the future? Should this be done every couple of years or longer? Any advice is welcome. Thanks!


Once you have re-finished yor log home you need to keep up on the maintanence of appling a fresh clear coat every 2-3 years. along with a routine inspection every spring and fall your new finish can last for 10-15 years. A lot of times the south and west walls will need attention more often. Call Mike at 866-670-3020 for your finsh needs.
