 The Work We Perform

Log Home

Proper preparation of any log home restoration project is the key to completing the job right and achieving a high quality finish that will last for years to come.

A log home restoration is the process of stripping the logs of all foreign material to bring back it's original clean white wood grain just like the day it was first installed, except this time with a slight difference by providing the stripped logs with a profile not noticed at first glance. This profile is vital in applying the stain. It helps the stain penetrate deeper into the logs which in turn preserves the logs longer and adds a beautiful finish.

The cost might seem expensive at first, but what you really are paying for in the end is nothing compared to the value of what you get when the project is completed properly. You're home is back to its original state, protected from the elements and has increased resale value. What better investment than in you're residence that you use and depend on daily.

 What is Chinking..?

Chinking is a flexible sealant that is used to seal the joints of log homes. No matter what type of log property you own, it is important to use chinking, a synthetic mortar, to keep the log joints sealed.
The cost of chinking is usually measured by the lineal foot to be completed, which includes backer fillers and the chinking plus labor and can range from $3 to $5 per lineal foot, depending on the spacing of the logs.
The first step in a proper chinking job is the preparation of the logs first. 

If you are doing a complete restoration of your log home, here is the steps to take in the complete finish of your log home.

3). Remove all fixtures and hardware.
4). Media blast all exposed logs and wood trim, using the method of Soda Blasting, using eco-friendly media.
5). Blow off all excessive media and debris from your log home, and optional pressure wash your log home.
6). Stain your log home by airless spraying to ensure you impact all areas of your blasted logs.
