Art Hoffman replied to Timothy S Rector's discussion Mold/Mildew on logs - never ending battle...
"Tim, I know I have responded to you previously but I will stick by my strong recommendation for staying away from TRANSFORMATION at all costs. Many, many of the professional log home refinishers in our tri-state area have stated, for the record,…"

Art Hoffman replied to Patti Veale's discussion Painted log home
"Patti, If you want to remove the paint from the logs, I have used FLOOD WOOD STRIPPER FOR DECKS AND SIDING with excellent success. Apply it to the logs by wide brush on a cool day, preferably without direct sunlight so the stripper has time to work.…"

Art Hoffman replied to Carlos Leon's discussion Woodpeckers?
"You can use a hand-held pump sprayer to apply the LambdaCS or similar chemical. You can also buy a powered back sprayer that will reach a good 40 or 50 feet for about $150. Another option would be to buy an extending spray can holder and use…"

"Nicholas, actually I told Colorado Log Home Finishing that I DID agree with him on certain  parts of what he said. What i do object to is his lack of acceptance of other professional log home finishers in our tri-state area, my observations and…"

"Nicolas, thank you for the info on Stay-Clean I/E, I have not seen that product anywhere before. I will look into it and make note of it in our next issue of Log Living Gazette as we are always interested in introducing new products to others. I do…"

Art Hoffman replied to Timothy S Rector's discussion Mold/Mildew on logs - never ending battle...
"Colorado Log Finishing: Buddy, get a life and learn to accept what is. The natural finish on homes like ours, which are Eastern white pine, looks very much like the finish was clear. I am not sure if you are just having a bad day or are mentally…"

Art Hoffman replied to Timothy S Rector's discussion Mold/Mildew on logs - never ending battle...
""Colorado Log Home Finishing": Once again, you cannot r-e-a-d. TRANSFORMATION does come in a natural/clear color, so why must you insist on being such an obstinate and nasty person on comments. I see that you sell and use TRANSFORMATION,…"

Art Hoffman replied to Timothy S Rector's discussion Mold/Mildew on logs - never ending battle...
"We used solely the TRANSFORMATION in a specific tint for all applications. No other "clear coat" was applied. And the applicator was one certified by Sashco and he is the one who purchased everything used."

Art Hoffman replied to Timothy S Rector's discussion Mold/Mildew on logs - never ending battle...
"Nicholas, MOLD BUSTER was used each time the home was coated with TRANSFORMATION and we did use one of their certified applicators. The environment in PA/NY/OH is very conducive to mold/mildew and every home we have seen TRANSFORMATION applied to,…"

Art Hoffman replied to Timothy S Rector's discussion Mold/Mildew on logs - never ending battle...
"Also, Sashco did NOT support their TRANSFORMATION product and respond to our many complaints in writing....which, again, you would know nothing about!"

Art Hoffman replied to Timothy S Rector's discussion Mold/Mildew on logs - never ending battle...
"Colorado Log Home Finishing: I do not believe in bashing other responders as you have done with me. But I will question your "worldliness". TRANSFORMATION may work in Colorado, but it is a proven fact it does NOT work in PA, NY, OH, etc.…"

Art Hoffman replied to Ron Long's discussion Insurance
"Ron, ERIE Insurance covers log homes as CUSTOM HOMES. That is the insurer that ourselves and most of our clients have used."

Art Hoffman replied to Carlos Leon's discussion Woodpeckers?
"Carlos, What you have is an infestation of Carpenter bees and they are making those "beautiful" round holes in your soffit and fascia. This is common for all homes with exposed wood surfaces and is not unique for log homes. Please refer to…"

Art Hoffman replied to Timothy S Rector's discussion Mold/Mildew on logs - never ending battle...
"Timothy, From your pictures, it looks like you have a clear finish on your logs, something like Sashco's Transformation. We made the HUGE and costly mistake of having Transformation applied to our log home when it was new. We noticed…"
