I'm working with a log home company to restain our home, which was built in 2002. The original finish was a sashco cascade and did marginaly ok for durability. I contracted with the same log home company to re-stain it this year and use sascho transformation. They power washed it and then applied multiple coats of transformation... long story short it made it look lousy. Sashco recommends corn cobing the old stuff off before apply transformation, cuz the old stuff will bleed through.The company…Continue

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.
