We have recently purchased a log home in Washington state. The home was built in 1980 and one side of the house the logs appear to have turned black from the weather. What would you recommend for taking this off and what to seal it with afterward?


It will need to be media blasted (corn cob or glass) then Osborn brushed. Use a latex stain like Lifeline to avoid the blackening.
