We bought a log home this year. It hasn’t been mainained for years. Most of the stain is gone and the logs are weathered grey. We plan on washing with a chlorox/trisodium phosphate mixed with water, then stain with Olympic semitransparant oil based stain. You seem to favor latex. Is there that much of a problem with Olympic Maximum oil based stain. Thank you. John
I would not use any bleach on this wash and DO NOT power wash very hard. TSP will lighten it up some if left for a couple of weeks before staining. Most every product for log homes is a latex based. You will get a better chemical bond between all produts, caulk, stain etc. if you stick with latex. It holds up every bit as good as any oil base. Maintenance is the key to any of product.
