we just had our home walnut blasted and stained with a perma chink product Ultra 7. It looks horrible. Some logs are smooth and some are very grainy. Some covered well and some did not. We did everything to Perma Chinks recommendations. I need to know how to rectify this problem.
Any input is welcome. Our home is a Pioneer Log Home ( western red cedar) and is about 17 years old.
Thank you for your time,
Kate Launder


Kate, First, was the home Osborne brushed after blasting? This helps with a smoother more even finish. Even though Perma Chink says that Ultra 7 is a one coat of stain system, we usually apply a second light coat to even things out, fill in light spots and reduce lap marks. You may be able to put a second coat on in the spring after a light wash to make it look better. Experiment on a small inconspicuous area of the house.

Did the company that did the blasting do the staining?
