Log Home Cleaning, Log or Media Blasting
This part of the process is focused on removing or stripping existing stain.
With media blasting or log blasting, we use dry media (such as corn cobbs, dry ice or recycled glass). This expedites the process and protects the logs from moisture, and is a healthy alternative as these forms of media are chemically inert.
Log Home Staining
Healthy choices guide our work on your log home maintenance, and products selected will include breathable zero to low VOC products.
Log Home Chinking & Log Cabin Chinking
Log home chinking is a particular method of weatherproofing a log home or cabin with a sealant that resembles concrete mortar. Many of the homes we build and maintain have profiles that don’t support chinking, and we more frequently use Energy Seal when weatherproofing. Energy Seal is often colour matched to blend with the stained log colour rather to contrast it (as is more commonly done with chinking). Talk to us about your log home’s building style and we can determine the best approach for applying sealant.
