My wife and I are building our third new southern white pine log home 6x12x random lengths 90% complete.We have used wood guard products on the other homes and are wondering if you would recommend anything different like twp exterior and varnish for the interior. thanks


Do not use anything that is plant oil based. Most have linseed oil or some other form of plant oil and cause the logs to turn black over time. Also, these stains are only effective for a year or two. Go with a good latex stain like Life Line. Call Dave at Timeless Wood Care Products for more help and advice. His number is 800-564-2987.
