I’ve recently purchased a 10-year old, cedar (half) log home. Home is sound, but is clearly ready for external cleanup. I’m struggling with two big questions: First, cob blasting versus chemical stripping and, second, an oil-based product (like Sikkens) versus an acrylic (like Perma Chink). I’ve had lengthy conversations with professionals interested in the job but am very confused about which way to go. Each presents seemingly strong arguments for their ”optimal” solution. Help!
