MAINTAIN

Washing:

We use a specialized soap designed for your logs and stain. We utilize light pressure washing (~3000psi at 12-24" away) and soft bristle car wash brush to loosen the dirt, pollen, and debris from the surface of your logs. This process is NOT for removing stain, only contaminations that hinder the performance of the stain that is trying to protect your investment. 

What else is included?

They best way to inspect is to wash. The crew is up close and personal with your investment and has a front row seat to watching how weather is affecting your structure.

 

We can tell:

- if the clear coat or stain is ready to be touched up in certain areas,

- if caulking is failing*,

- if logs show signs of rot,

- if your gutters need cleaned,

- if your deck is needing help,

- if insects like carpenter bees and ants are a problem, 

- if there is settling issues, 

and more. 

The crew will make notes of what they see and, upon request, we can put together a quote to address problems before they get worse or game plan future maintenance. 

Staining/Clear Coating:

Has your glossy finish look "Less shiny?" Does your stain color look less "colorfull?" This may be more of a problem than just looks. This is the Sunscreen for the logs as well and the water repellency. When the sunscreen is wore off, they can get literally get sunburnt. When water repellency is compromised , wood will absorb water and expand...then dry out and contract...and keep doing that over and over creating more cracks and checks as well and really testing the elasticity of the caulk/chinking. Many times we see caulking fail when logs are susceptible to large fluctuations in expansion and contraction as well as a follow up to stain failure when the caulking is done to logs after staining. 

 

It is best to stick within the same stain line as used before but depending on the stain, we may be able to change manufactures if homeowner would like. We can test compatibility if needed. 

Can too much stain be bad?

Depends on the stain. Short answer is yes for the most part. Many stains used today are film forming stains which can be layered to think to retain their breathability. Too many layers of film stain are almost as bad as paint. Logs need to dry out and not suffocate or they can cause visual dark streaks between the log and stain. Deep penetrating stains applied to thick wont hurt the logs but can cause color streaks.  

That, and why would you want to pay us to stain or clear coat when we don't need to?
