We are refinishing a log home near Danbury, Wisconsin this week. Blasting is one of the steps to refinishing and we blast about 40 homes a year.
Sometimes we come in and do everything, which includes blasting, treating the logs with a borate solution, chinking, filling checks, doing log replacement and staining. This is what we call “whole house” jobs or full service.
On this home, after we did the blasting, we applied a borate treatment, chinked around the windows and doors and finally, we re-stained the logs and trim. Basically a full service job.
On other jobs, we may come in and do only rotten log replacement or only do the blasting and borate treatment.
For customers who are more inclined to do some of there own maintenance themselves, this can be a good option. In these cases, we work with the owner to help him/her choose the right stain. We can even connect them with suppliers of the stains who can drop ship right to their door. Click here to learn more about choosing the right stain.
Whether it is a full service/whole house project or an à la carte project, we can help with log home refinishing. We work with our clients to determine how they are most comfortable getting the job done and then… we get it done right.
