Question #2. the log home we're considering purchasing has a gray paint or solid stain on it. The home has passed several hands. How can I know if the right kind of sealant/stain was used? If there is no way to know, what can be done to preserve the exterior? Thanks.


You should take a sample from one of the logs to a Sherwin Williams and see if they can tell you what the make up is. If it is paint you should have it stripped off and re-stained.
