On this project, we worked on a 12-year old split-log sided home. At first glance, the finish looked fine, but on closer inspection, it was peeling. The customer called to have another coat of stain applied, but after inspecting the condition of the current finish, it was decided that the best course of action was to blast off the finish down to fresh wood before re-applying stain.
If a building has multiple layers of paint or stain, we generally recommend removing it with blasting, either with sand, corncob, or crushed glass, depending on the toughness and amount of finish that needs to be removed.
Most of the time, we do the blasting and apply a borate preservative in order to get the building ready for stain. In this case, the customer wanted to apply the stain after it was blasted. We work with customers to figure out what works best for their circumstances.
