We have a cabin with 2 x 8 pine 1/2 log siding which was pre finished with a linseed oil based stain in 2005. We have done nothing to maintain our siding since installation in 2005.
A siding refinisher has come out and power washed a small area and said that there is mold underneath the finish on the siding and that he would need to strip the siding and refinish it. The areas underneath my soffit have no mold growth. Does this seem accutate, he wants $11,000 to refinish.


Anything with Linseed Oil will do this where the sun gets to it. The price is not out of line. I would not let him powerwash or you will have the same problem in 2-3 years.
