Our log home is about 5 years old. It was stained a very light color. Now it's turning very dark in places like mildew? What should we do. Help!


You probably have a plant oil based stain (like linseed oil) that is causing it to turn black. It needs to be stripped and have a good quality log home stain applied. Call Dave at 800-564-2987 for help.
