We have had our Hemlock log home for about 20 years now in SE Missouri. I recently power washed and used a Behr silcon sealent about a month after power washing. I have just read your warning about silicon sealents and power washing. We have bare logs on the inside and most all the checks in the logs are not sealed. My question is, is the silicon mainly prevent the logs from breathing? What should I do now?
Thanks, Dale

Silicon should never be used on wood. It will break loose within a year allowing water behind it making more problems than good. It also leaves a residue on the wood so that another product will have a hard time binding to it. Save the power washer for the sidewalks!
