Question:


I have read that you recommend log homes not be pwer washed because too much moisture will stay in the log but what about log slab siding? I have a home with 2x6 framed walls sheathed and covered with log slabs. I have a lot of black stains which i assume is fungus/mold. i need to get rid of that and can't find anyone who does corn-cob blasting.

Answer:

That would not be as bad since the wood is not as thick as logs and may dry out a little quicker. Water is still not good forwood.

Call Mike at 866-670-3020 for help with the corn blasting.

I just bought a home from a bank. It was built in 1995. The logs have black areas from mold & mildew. All the estimates are not in my budget, I'm going alone on this. Where do I start?
