Our cabin in northern Minnesota has log siding, we bought it as a forclosure the previous owner did not take very good care of the log siding it is in desparate need of maintenance. The stain is and has been peeling in many many spots, many areas of the logs are now gray and weathered, some logs will have to be repalced due to rot.
How do I go about making the cabin look good again. somehow I have to get all the peeling and flaking stain off, then clean and restore the siding. How do I go about


You should have it corn cob or glass blasted then replace any bad pieces of siding. Apply a borate treatment then stain with Life Line stain. Call Dave at 800-564-2987 for help and materials.
