Blasting - Pot and Compressor for a homeowner 4 Replies

Cob Blasting - estimated cost? 22 Replies

I was wondering if anyone would know the estimated cost of cob blasting a 1900 sq ft ranch style log home. The house was built in 1994 and has never been recoated but is in pretty decent shape. I tried power washing one end but it removes part of the finishing fairly easy creating a spotted looked. I wanted the finish to have a like new look again and I just don’t think I’ll get those results from power washing.

Permachink vs Sashco 7 Replies

The local log product supplier in my area slings Sashco and Permachink.  Had a few log restoration contractors out to my house and they are all slinging Sashco.  Anyone out there have experience with both products?  Wondering why none of the contractors pushed Permachick upfront.  Is Sashco just that much better?  Whats the deal?Continue
