We are in the process of acquiring a pine log home (20 years old) near Berkeley Srings, WV. The home has sat vacant for 2 years with no upkeep. There is extensive carpenter bee and woodpecker damage. What is the best way to patch the damaged areas and have it look decent. Our home inspector recommended we have an exterminator get right on it, patch it, and then put two coats of Sikkens Cetol Dek Finish on the logs. Is this a good strategy to repair the damage and help prevent future damage?
