Sand blasting your log home may be one of the many choices you face as you seek to maintain your log home properly. If you own a log home, you know that there are many opinions out there on how to do just about everything to a log home or cabin. It can be confusing to determine which course of action is the right one.
When it comes to removing old and deteriorated finish or stain, there are numerous techniques. At Edmunds & Company, we believe that if you need to take off old and tired finish, have it blasted off. We have written extensively on our blog about why we promote blasting over power washing or chemical stripping. Here are some links about this topic:

We recently got a call from someone who has lots of mildew on his logs. He has an oil-based finish on it. Unfortunately, in order to really clean up the logs and remove all the remnants of mildew caused by the oil finish, it is best to have it blasted off. Once down to fresh wood, it opens up the possibility to select a modern,quality finish designed for log homes.
It is amazing what a difference this type of restoration makes. Not sure what you might need? We’d be happy to consult. Give a call to 715-373-5744.
