To Pressure Wash or Not? 20 Replies

Hi everyone,I just bought a log home built in 1989. Haven't even moved in yet but I've discovered Perma-Chink's Web site. Seems I'll be in touch with them soon. I'd like to start out on the right foot. I don't know when the exterior of the house was last cleaned or treated so I'd like to do it ASAP. Is it a good or bad idea to pressure wash before using Log Wash or other such product and before treating with stain and topcoat?Thank you!AlexContinue

Recently bought a log home. Noticed red spots on bottom of some beams. Unsure if it's a growth of some kind or old drips from stain/pitch. Thanks for the help.

HiWe have been living in a log home for 6 years now. The house is in the fields and each fall, starting with September we have mice inside the house.

Wall Leaks 14 Replies

Hello everyone. Our log home was built in 2010 and there is one large (our largest) exposed wall that leaks through the log checks during wind-driven rains. We have had the house sealed and stained twice in 7 years (other than the original stain). While it has helped, we still have the problem every time we get wind-driven horizontal rain. We have resorted to filling all the checks we can get to with log caulk which has helped greatly, but we know it is just a temporary solution and it becomes…Continue
