My 6 1/4” log home was built in 1984. During the 1990’s we were told to paint the logs with a special paint. This proved to be the biggest mistake ever. I now have log rot that I am repairing. I am getting ready to cover the logs with siding. Will the paint have any effect on the logs after I have covered it with siding? Does it need to be completely stripped before covering? Does the chinking need to be removed? Thank you for the opportunity to ask these questions.
