Doing it Right

Over the years we have heard of many ways to try to redo a wood home or siding or log and it seems after many tries it is always the same result in a few years, not no more we can show you how doing it right and maintaning it properly can make the life of your hope out live your expectations.


Many many homes of wood structure have been built and not properly finished and this can leave us not happy with our home or it may look unfinished. One of the main reason for this is the wood it self and the proper preparation need. For example: Peeled logs, milled logs or wood siding all seem to have the same result and the biggest reason for this is what we call milling or in layman terms water or a pitch liquid which comes to the surface on mill and peeled wood.  In most homes this has never been removed and when applying your protective coating the bond with the wood is not there, actually causing the finish to blacken, peel, discolor or even rot.  Some have tried washing with Javex, other mixture to remove the finish only to find that it comes back.


Other have taken months to scape and try to get corners stripped with limited success.  Big chemical companies promote cleaners to solve this problem, only for customers to find out in the end it does not work.
