    Prep by using the Restore A Deck kits and pressure washing. Which Defy stain was it? Does not matter on the chinking.

    We recently purchased a log home in the Pacific Northwest (fir logs) I would like to re-seal the logs and believe that Defy stain was used before. What steps do I need to take to re-seal the logs. I will also have some chinking to repair; is it best to do it before or after I seal the logs?

    Any of the wood stains we sell should work. Sorry but sure on the egg stain. Might need to sand it out.

    I have siding of Boliden salt cedar that I would like to refresh with stain. Any products available? Also any help with removing an old "egg" stain from it?

    No it will not. No deck stain stripper will remove a paint.

    You need to remove the old coating first with a deck stain stripper and pressure washing. Use a wood brightener after to neutralize. Look at the Restore A Deck Products for this.

    I have a log home. I purchased a TWP sealer from you and sealed the north end of the home. The rest of the log home I sealed with a product that came suggested by the manufacturer of the log home. The label on the bucket states the product is oil based and clean up with soap and water. The original product has not held up very well after two applications. The half log siding has cracks and is grayed in areas due to exposure to the sun. The old finish has yellowed and in same cases has turned to powder.
    The current color is a yellow gold tone. What recommendations/ products do you have in order to seal the logs.
    Thanks,

    Black specks is mildew while gray is sun damage. Did you pressure wash with a woo cleaner followed by a wood brightener?

    I have sanded my log home to restain it and still have some greying spots. How do I know if these spots are mildew or Sun damage and should I remove it before staining? If so, what is the recommended practice?

    Kate, you could try a stain like Armstrong Clark. It can be cleaned and reapplied as needed with sanding.

    Thanks

    You cannot blend new wood and old wood to match and you cannot match different brands. Best would be to remove all old coatings 100% and start over with a clean and fresh surface. This would give you the most uniform appearance. TWP TWP stains.

    We have a log cabin in the UP of Michigan. It has had various coats of semi transparent stain applied over the years; Behr and about 3 to 4 yrs ago Weatherseal. This summer we are adding an addition and would like it all to match. We did call and were told it is best to wait 4 mos to a year before applying stain to new wood so we plan to wait until next spring to stain. Would like to know what stain you would recommend for new pine half log siding and what preparations to make on old log cabin previously stained.

    Bill, I would look at the Armstrong Clark in one of the semi-transparent colors. TWP cannot be shipped to Canada due to changes in VOC laws there.

    I have a log home built by True North out of Canada. I purchased a TWP sealer from you two years ago. It was a clear sealer. My mistake. I sealed the north end of the home with it and it doesn't match. That doesn't bother me much because I really look at it!
    This summer I need to power wash the front and rear of the house and apply a sealer to the logs. What do you suggest I use?
    The current color is a yellow gold tone. I'll be more specific when I respond to your email.
    Thanks,
    Bill Morey

    I am sorry but we do not stock or sell gallons of the TWP 200.

    Hi,
    I understand that you can ship TWP 200 in Canada. I see that you only have 5 gal pails available, can you ship a 1 gal. I want to test the colour before ordering the 5 gal pails.
