How often should a pine log home be caulked, stained, or sealed?


Once a log home is stained and in good shape it needs to have a light bath with Perma Chink Log Wash every 3-4 years and have a fresh clear coat applied if applicable. Check the label on the stain that you have on your home and look for maintenance instructions.

I bought a 2100 sq foot log home with loft.. has high ceiling and beams.i do not know what was used to protect exterior logs so what would be best to use...also the interior logs are rough and very hard to keep clean.. I don't know what kind of logs so what are suggestions for cleaning an or putting on a kind of clear coating to make cleaning easier? Do interior logs need treated with anything prior to putting clear stuff on..
