We are considering the purchase of a log home that has been painted with off-white paint!!! Why would anyone do that? Anyway, my husband says the paint can be removed with a pressure washer. Should that remove the paint and how do you prevent damage to the wood?


DO NOT try to remove with a power washer. It is cancer to a log home. It will need to be media blasted and then probably sanded or Osborne brushed to finish removing the paint. You can then borate treat and then stain. I recommend Life Line stain.
