I am looking purchasing a log home. My concern is that in addition to re-staining the exterior a new borate treatment and clearcoat is needed. What is the average cost per square foot for each, stain, borate and clearcoat?
You will need to have it striped to apply borate. To strip, borate treat, and stain a 1,500 sq ft house would cost $14,000 +/- a thousand. Also, plan on budgeting about $1.50 per sq ft of living space/per year to keep it professionally maintained.
