Question:


We built a log home. The home was power washed and stained with WOODguard on the same day in temps about 40 degrees during the day and 20's a night. We now have very streaky coverage and a lot of black moldy looking exterior walls. Is this caused by an error in application? How would you recommend we resolve? THANKS

Answer:

The temps where border line, but the power washer probably caused more damage than anything.

Never ever ever power wash your wood. Does exactly what you discribed. I wish author of this web site would state this fact on here. Powerwashing does turn wood black and as for applying stain it should have been allowed to dry for day at least before applying stain.
