The interior of our log home has water stains on the outside walls. It was like this when we purchased the home. We thought that possibly the logs were stains before the roof was put on. Can water stains be removed from the logs and if so how? The exterior logs are a dark brown color so we can't tell if there are water stains on the outside.


More than likely it was caused by leaky windows or chink lines. Water stains are hard to get rid of if they are very old. They typically are deep into the wood fiber. Try sanding in an inconspicuous place to see if they can be removed.
