My father recently removed an old antenna from my roof. Unfortunately, he allowed it to scrap the side of the house as it came down. It was stained last year and I wasn't planning on re-doing it again. Do you think I need to sand the entire wall and restain? Or can I get away with sanding only the small scraps and staining those spots only? Will the scraps show up? Can I fill them in with wood putty? I definitely don't want to make more work for myself than my father has already has made


You should be able to just sand the areas that are affected. It is sometimes hard to blend in sanded areas with some types of log home stain. Be sure to feather it out real well to avoid lap marks in the stain.
