Staining my Log Home
[Return to Topics]

Hi All,
I am going to strip and restain my Log home in a week or so and am not set on brand of stain I will use yet. I am leaning toward Sikkens Cetol 1 (Expensive...uggghh) mainly because of testimonials I have seen and also its resistence to mold growth. Wondered if anyone has any ideas on this subject?
Thanks in Advance:)

Check out Sashco and Permachink before you drop the big bucks on Sikkens. Same or very similar performance at a lower cost. Both have a lot of good info on their web sites about log home finishing or refinishing.

We used Permachink on ours, and like it.

I'm going to be looking at staining my log home soon also. Let me know what product you decide on. Will you be using a tinted stain? What color?

I'm not going to be any help to you but I am curious as to how you plan to "strip" your log home.

I have a friend that strips, power washes and seals decks for a living. He uses a bio- friendly stripper. He sprays it on, then drinks some coffee, then power washes. I sure would be careful using a p/washer on a log home. May just blow through the chinking material and log seam.
