"We bought our log cabin four years ago. It was a total wreck from years of neglect - carpenter ants/bees, water damage/staining from leaking roof and skylights, etc. But it was six beautiful acres with a private lake one hour from the city... Before we made the decision to tear the house down and start over, we met Ian and his team.

They literally "camped out" in the house for six weeks and totally stripped/stained and resealed the entire house! Four bedrooms, two full baths, great room, kitchen, hallways and the entire outside- including a wrap around deck- was refurbished and protected. And Ian has stayed in touch every year. He just checked on us and this past summer re-sealed the home’s exterior.

The house is our weekend refuge from our insanely, busy workweek. We are there almost every Friday night. The stress just melts away as we pull onto our road and see the perfect house up on the hill overlooking our lake. It's great to know we have someone like Ian if we have any issues. He's always reachable and does a great job!"

Using the high quality log home finishes your home will gain the following benefits:

  1. Provide the best-looking finish and distinguish your home by highlighting the grain and texture to bring out the natural beauty of your wood.
  2. High-performance polymers encase the wood fibers in the logs to protect the surface, where protection is most needed.
  3. A flexible coating expands and contracts to accommodate seasonal expansion and shrinking of the logs.
  4. Pigments and Ultraviolet (UV) inhibitors help extend the life of the finish and provide long-term protection against harmful UV rays.

Traditional Finishes Can Damage Your Log Home

Conventional exterior finishes build up layer after layer of pigment on the wood, making your house darker each time you apply another maintenance coat. More advanced finishes gives you the choice during maintenance coats to use pigmented and/or clear topcoats.Advanced stains breathe to allow the wood to dry naturally as they protect wood from absorbing moisture from rain and humidity, which also helps to minimize checking.

Professional Log Sealant & Finish Application

Contact Performance Log Finishers by calling 800-781-2551 to apply a new coat when your finish has lost its sheen or it no longer repels water. Remember, it’s not always necessary to refinish your entire log house. Maintenance coats can be applied to only those walls where it is required.
