Sandblasting and cob blasting are important tools in log home restoration… but let’s face it. That’s not the real reason you have it done. It’s because the stain is faded or the finish is starting to peel or because no stain or sealer was ever applied and the logs are getting blackened or gray. In other words, your lovely old log home is looking sad and shabby.
But there are even more important reasons to do this… logs need to breathe. And if there are too many layers of old finish on the logs, they can start to retain too much moisture and that’s the beginning of rot.
Sometimes, hidden problems are revealed when all the old finish is removed. This makes it obvious which damaged logs need to be repaired or replaced.
Edmunds & Company likes to use a natural and non-toxic borate preservative to protect the logs before we apply a new stain to reveal the beauty of the logs and remind you why you fell in love with the place.

Sand blasting log cabins can reveal the hidden beauty under dark or stained logs. Oftentimes, log cabins and log homes darken from mildew, built-up stains or improper sealing. Cob blasting log cabins can remove unsightly external discoloration to reveal the true beauty underneath. After blasting, we use non-toxic borate preservatives to treat the logs before applying new stain. The result is a home preserved and protected from the weather. A refinished home is beautiful and adds to its value for generations to come.
Sandblasting is an effective method or removing old finish. Done by a professional, it can leave the logs in good shape, ready for staining.
Cob blasting log homes and cabins not only restores their beauty, it can also uncover hidden problems. Often, sealants, paints or finishes are used to cover up existing problems in log homes. Other problems may simply be hidden behind stains. When the finish is professionally removed, we can see hidden problems and repair them before they turn into major issues
This log home is now looking good, its logs can breathe again, and it’s protected from the elements.
