Scott M replied to John & Pat Biehn's discussion I'm replacing the outside spindles on my railings
"John – I am not a huge fan of log railing.  I have just seen it rot too easily – it seems to wick and retain moisture which leads to problems and in my opinion no amount of stain or sealer is going to fix it.  I think that it…"

Scott M replied to Gabby's discussion Use for leftover log pieces?
"If you are creative with a chain saw you can make a nice picnic table and set of benches pretty easily.   I have also seen heavy rustic ponderosa branches spanned between log posts for a bed head and foot rest. Scott…"

Scott M commented on henry's blog post Little hunting cabins
"Log siding is the way to go.  I have always thought the ideal hunting or fishing cabin was a conventionally framed cabin with heavy log siding.   I have taken fallen and scrap logs to our local lumber mill and for almost nothing in…"

Scott M replied to Ron Morgan's discussion Need a high quality Clear Sealer
"The Weatherall Sustain Clear is a low VOC oil based stain that may work for you.  It is an absolutely clear stain - doesn’t contain any sort of yellow pigments like some natural stains or sealers.  This makes it a good choice for…"

Scott M replied to Kai Englert's discussion Blasting log ends and eves
"Kai   - Don’t use the media blaster on the log ends - you’re right the media will be forced into the ends of the logs and it won’t do near as good a job as an angle grinder.   Use an angle grinder first with a…"

Scott M replied to Lori's discussion LOW VOC Stains
"I have used the Weatherall UV guard stains and have had a lot of success with both the UV Guard and UV Guard II stains and Log Guard Clear.   The key is applying them correctly.  They are also all classified as low VOC products having…"

Scott M replied to Kai Englert's discussion Just Purchased Log Home Needs Refinishing
"Kai - I looked at the photos of your home and if you are planning on chinking/caulking I would recommend going with the Weatherall Textured Caulk.  You can use this product without backer rod and match up or skim over the existing…"

Scott M replied to david labaire's discussion LOG ROT
"Before you address the problem with wood rot you need to first determine what is causing it (gutters, poor drainage, backsplash, logs resting on dirt …etc.).   Epoxy consolidants I feel are best for treating wood rot on logs or…"

Scott M replied to Guy Montag's discussion Caulking between logs and chimney
" I think one of the best products that I have found for chinking between the logs and the chimney is a product called Mortar Match by Weatherall Co.   It is a very high performance textured caulk with a heavier aggregate that gives…"

Scott M replied to Kyle Gomm's discussion Oil Based Stains vs. Water Based Stains
"In my opinion proper application of a water based stain is the best, they hold up better, they’re easier to clean up and there aren’t any odors to deal with.   Additionally acrylic chinking and caulking used on most log homes…"

Scott M replied to Kim Broome's discussion Should log siding be chinked?
"Kim, Based on the photos you provided I would seriously recommend that you caulk the line with a 3/8” - ½” bead of acrylic caulk.  You may need to install some backer rod in some areas where line opens up too much usually…"
