Question:


We used Menwood to seal the exterior logs. Now that it is time to do this again, can we change to another sealant product, and what would you recommend?

Answer:

As long as you use a similiar product, latex or oil based, whatever the case may be. I would test on a area that cannot be seen easily, it could end up being real dark. The best thing to do if you want to change products is to strip the old finish off buy corn cob blasting first. This also allows you to apply a borate treatment for rot.
