Log Home Media Blasting
Media is a general term used for the various types of materials available to abrasively remove or strip existing finishes or weathering from the logs. This process prepares the logs for staining and finishing. Media blasting is labor intensive, generally very messy, and experience is a must in order to keep the wood intact. We typically like to follow up blasting with buffing and sanding to return the wood back to a smoother state.
Log Home Sanding
A lot of log homeowners consider sanding the logs to remove stains and to restore the logs to their “original” beauty. This is definitely possible, but without proper technique and experience, sanding can seriously damage your home. Sanding is a great method that leaves behind hardly any mess, and gives the result of a smooth, furniture like finish.
Log Home Chemical Stripping
Chemical stripping is a method that requires very close attention and is best left to a professional applicator. There are two types of chemicals available: caustic and solvent. Chemical stripping is a method that consists of spraying or brushing on a chemical to the log surface, waiting for a period of time, and then completing with a pressure wash of the chemical on top of the prior finish.
Log Home Preserving
The structural integrity and safety of your log home and family is of the highest priority to us! We believe that preserving the wood should be something that is done right the first time in order to keep your home as beautiful and safe as possible.
Log Home Siding
We offer installation or repair of log siding all the way to complete restoration. Through a homeowners point of view you should always treat log siding as if it were real logs.
