We have half log siding on our house in northern canada,it was treated every 3yrs.with Behr rawhide oil.turning black now and what do we do to remove it ourselves.


That can be some tuff material to remove sometimes. Corn cob blasting would be the best. There has been a lot of trouble with the Behr Rwhide turning black and peeling.

I too have had a bad experience with Behr Rawhide. In my case it started to melt during a recoating porcess. Anytime the walls were subjected to water or heavy moisture(morning dew) the finish would start to show deterioration in the from of paint runs. My cabin is clad with milled 2x8 half log cedar siding and the complete perimeter distance of the building is 180 lineal feet, not counting four gable ends. It took me seven years (all by myself) to remove the Behr Rawhide. The method I used was LePages Poly Strippa (paint remover), a brush, scraper (replaced numerous blades), washing and bleaching the bare wood and three coats of another product with hand sanding in between. As you can imagine, I did not receive any help from the Behr people but a whole lot of sympathy which just made me more infuriated.

We also had problems with Behr Rawhide, Behr makes a product to remove this finish, we got it at Home Depo. Once it is sprayed on you let sit for 15 minutes or so and spray off with water hose , don't need a pressure washer. After that it is a little fuzzy from the water ,i wired brushed ours and it worked out fine.

We are considering buying a log home. It has been stained a dark color, inside and out. We love the space but the dark color is oppressive. Is there some way to remove the stain and lighten the logs (inside and out)?
