Hi: I just bought several log homes for use as guest accommodations.Rather than leave the interior logs bare, I've asked the contractor to seal them. He tells me that one coat of poly is sufficient; or, he can poly, sand, and repoly, but it will cost twice as much as he quotes for "sealing" interiors. Are two coats necessary? I know that is what most manufacturers recommend.


Two is going to look best, but not a must. You should be using a Acrylic clear finish and not poly.
