"Hi Brian,   Good question, I waited 1 week after the low pressure washing occurred to begin staining.  Many parts of the house were 2 or more weeks out since I could not stain the house in one weekend.    I have three…"

""A latex stain is more of a rubber stain like a paint that would not breath with the wood." -Wrong! At least in Perma-Chink's case. The Lifeline stain is latex and highly breathable. "

Hello Folks, Using bleach to clean log homes has the tendency to compromise the Ph of the wood. When applying penetrating oil preservative be sure to add fungicide,biocide,insecticide after you check the Ph . If you don't the logs will turn black. The folks at LogFinish.com have the answers and the products to give you the best protection. I use them exclusively in my business and they will show you what to do to best protect your dream home.By the way,I don't work for them. Good Luck, Jim
