We put a latex dark stain on our less than 10 yr old house and it looked so old , I want to go w/ a more orangey/ or I think cedar color .We started to remove w/ a power washer and some deck stain remover. What do recommend that is any easier to remove it? Also is there a stain that will cover any left over stain that we can not remove fully?? What type of stain do you recommend to use to make the place look like fresh wood!


The only good way to remove it is to have it corn cob blasted. You will more than likely not have to worry about left on old stain. Power washing is not good for the logs. We like to use Perma Chink Ultra 2 stain.

what is the best way to remove the remainder of 13 year old Penofen stain, to restore the log siding to "new wood" condition for future stain/preservative. My sandlbaster recommends glass media because of the low pressure blasting combined with the sharpness of the glass?
