Cracking Logs on Interior and Exterior 4 Replies

Hello, I am new to the board and I attempted to find a similar question that was already asked. Seeing as though every situation is different though, I thought I would ask mine.I am purchasing this 20 year old log home and I wanted to know two things. Are the cracks going to affect my overall structural soundness and 2) how can I repair them without making the logs look awful? I saw that there are a lot of product suggestions for the Check Mate. Can I use that on interior as well as exterior? I…Continue

Is there anybody here? 7 Replies

Since it's been 2 weeks since a single sole last posted in the loghomeu I thought I check for pulse.  Roll call everyone?  Spring 2015 Log Home Maintenance season is turning out to be busy already, here's our first project, pictured below in the foothills outside of Denver.  This log home had been built just 10 years ago and was originally coated with Sikkens Cetol 1-2-3, a product which we remove often and it's one of the more…Continue

Researching contractors to media blast my home in Reliance, TN 10 Replies

I contracted a man and wife team to clean the outside of my log home and apply Woodgard to it after it dried. Unfortunately, they bought and applied deck stain instead of the already purchased Woodgard.  I called Woodgard and they told me that I'd have to wait 2-3 years until the finish wore off. It's been that long and some of the finish is gone but there are other places that still show the stain. I'm looking for information on media blasting contractors in my area to see if this is what my…Continue

Looking At Cabins

Sometimes you just have to stop and take pictures and look at the old Colorado cabins.  In my small community of less than 2000 people, South Park, Colorado, there used to be 150,000 people living here.  They left behind there homes which are a wonderful display of decay.  Old cabins like this can be found all over Colorado.…Continue

Restaining with same stain but looks like mildew present - help 4 Replies

I am restaining a log home with Wolman Durastain, Semitransparent stain (same stain as on walls now).  I know it's not the best stain but it's what's on the house now and I'd like to avoid a complete change.I power washed the walls and let dry for a few days.  It appears there is mildew on logs in several places (this mildew may have appeared during drying (?)).  The mildew can be brushed off with rag in places.  The Durastain is supposed to be mildew resistant.  Do I need to remove this before…Continue
