Below are a few questions we’ve received from local log homeowners:
“Should I Paint or Stain My Log Home?”
Whatever you do – don’t paint your log home! You might be tempted to paint your log homes exterior a new color.
There are many reasons not to paint your log home. Paint seals the logs in a way that traps moisture inside (and moisture is not good for a healthy log home.) The extra moisture can cause complicated and costly repairs that may require cutting out the rot, replacing it, and treating it.
In many cases, staining the log cabin’s wood will produce the best results. Staining helps keep the wood looking beautiful, keeps water from getting into the wood and lets moisture out.
“How often do you have to stain a log home?”
On average, you should stain your log home or cabin every 5 to 8 years depending on the kind of stain you use and how much your cabin gets exposed to things like wind, sun, rain, hail, and other harmful elements.
