"TWP Disappears much quicker than Q8 will, I haven't seen a long time consumer of it, that is really happy with it."

"Thanks Ray. I sent Lovitt's a contact query about the finish and a Product Data Sheet request too. I see your a pro at this work & that matters to a hands on guy like me. I built from scratch & maintain our home, so, though not in it…"

"Try Lovitts, The Emerald line, will go over top of whatever you have on now. Not affiliated with them. Just have been using there products for 8 plus years, and have had nothing but success using their suggested formulas. Ask for Jeff. Ray…"

"Hi Scott - I've not used a clear coat of Q8 before.  I have the same color Q8 on my house as on my porch post/rails.  The post/rails are also borate pressure treated Eastern White Pine like the log walls and log siding.  Keep in…"

"Hi Michael - I have Borate pressure treated Eastern White Pine logs that were milled and erected in 1992.  After the initial application of Q8, I waited 12 months for the 2nd coating, then 3 years after the 2nd coating.  I'm five…"

"Thanks Scott. The labor part for me is a matter of my time , not cost to a contractor. I recently called a lady near me, as she owns a log house (that we see from the road) that was obviously refinished. She paid over $10k to have hers redone &…"

"I have applied Q8 twice now. I believe that the product gives great protection and water beads off your logs for years. I second coated my log home and did the whole house for consistency of color & performance but quite honestly I will only…"

"Scott, I appreciate the further comments but still must say that "easy to work with" is not what will help me make a decision as to "what finish & why". More details please. I also find soap & water cleanup as nothing to…"

"Donald, I'm hoping you have the time to share some more information: After further thought-what type logs do you have & when built? How long between coatings on first two finishes & interval with two Q8 applications? FWIW, It may get a…"

"Hi Michael - I've been using Q8 Log Oil for years now and I LOVE it.  Keep in mind that Q8 uses a unique oil which is why you can clean up after it with just water if you want to. Unlike other oil based products, it will not form a…"

I'm a noobie here but we have been living in the log house I self-built in 1979-80 from scratch. Located in E. KY, it's "stack log" constructed of ~11-12" SYP, hand peeled logs.Quite uniform, as they came from a 1930's CCC planted plot, thus an even aged stand of trees. It's a 2 story house containing a little over 300-16' logs plus board & batten dormers of rough sawed pine.I'm currently searching for my next finish , to be self applied after a clean up for some mildew & dirt (not old…See More
