We are looking at a log home to buy in southern alabama and the log home has been painted twice we have no clue how long it's been painted . I think it 20yrs old .I've read you shouldn't paint a log home . Should we have a expert look at it. What do you recommend ?


If it is truly paint it should be removed by grinding, corn cob or glass blasting. Be sure to repair any surface rot or log rot issues and then stain with a good quality log home stain like Life Line. Call Timeless Wood Care Products for help and the materials you will need at 800-564-2987.
