Log Home Restorations are generally larger scale projects that can include but are not limited to Log Repair, Log Replacements, Media Blasting, Grinding, Staining, replacing Mortar Chink with Synthetic Chink and applying preventative treatments. Sometimes, these projects include replacing large sections of walls, floors or ceilings.
Chinking Log Homes and Cabins is our specialty. Sometimes homes are chinked for aesthetic reasons, but chinking can help keep heat in and pests and moisture out, especially if you plan on occasionally pressure washing your house to remove dirt and pollens which inhibit mold growth and can cause discoloration to your logs (usually on the top half of the logs).
Sometimes logs can be repaired removing small areas of decayed material and refilling with epoxy and e-wood type products. If the damage is slightly more extensive then we can sometimes replace half of the log, which is known as a "facelift". But, if the damage goes is more extreme and the logs are no longer structurally sound, then we will replace the damaged logs with new logs.
Stain & Finish Removal
Lack of maintenance, weather or improperly applied stains and finishes can create a situation where the entire finish needs to be removed and reapplied. Sometimes a homeowner simply wants to change the color of the stain or they need to re-stain a section of a home but may not know what product was originally used, making it difficult to match the original look.
Staining & Finishes
One of the most important decisions a homeowner will make regarding their log home, is which stain product to apply. Choosing the proper products and applying them correctly to the manufacturer's specifications can protect your investment. As an Independent Applicator, we will properly apply high quality products from reputable manufacturers.
Cleaning & Maintenance
Log homes and cabins require periodic exterior cleaning and treatments to prevent build-up of harmful organisms such as mold spores, pollen and dust that can lead to the breakdown of your protective finishes. We'll apply the proper cleaning products and preventative treatments that will keep your property looking great and prevent costly damage.
