Log houses and cabins have a sense of charm and character that connects the residence to the natural environment. Investing in this property type means you’ll need to maintain the wood’s structural integrity to preserve its visual appeal and avoid moisture damage. Wood staining is one of the best ways to do this.
If you want to protect your home’s logs while enhancing the lumber’s natural beauty, consider log home staining services from Westslope Painting.
Our team at Westlope Painting has years of experience providing exceptional residential painting services. Our team adheres to the highest quality standards in the industry and utilizes the best quality domestic paints and stains for every project.
Since log homes are unique with specific maintenance needs, not every homeowner and painting contractor understands the intricacies of log home staining. For instance, someone might paint a log home to cover the wood’s exterior surface, but that prevents moisture from seeping out of the lumber. However, a quality oil-based stain is better than paint because it soaks into the wood giving it a natural color while blocking outside moisture.
At Westslope Painting, we understand the unique requirements of log home stain maintenance. Unlike traditional house-building materials, logs retain moisture, making them susceptible to rot, mold, and fungus. As a licensed and insured contractor, we know how to apply wood stains to log homes for protection and a boost in curb appeal.
Two ways to restore a log home’s beauty are refinishing and restaining. The first option requires an experienced contractor to blast away the existing stain to strip the logs down before applying a new coat on the fresh wood. However, restaining refers to cleaning the logs thoroughly and reapplying a new stain.
If your log home’s existing stain is faded, dull, or beginning to wear down in certain areas, turn to Westslope Painting for superior restaining services. You can also rely on us to restore your log home if its current stain no longer repels water. Thanks to our vast experience, we can accurately assess your home’s needs and provide the best solution.
Since log home maintenance is a specialized service, you must work with an experienced contractor you can trust. As a leader in log home staining services, our Westslope Painting team has the tools and expertise to transform your home’s appearance and ensure exceptional protection against the elements.
Maintaining a log home’s interior and exterior appearance may seem daunting, but it’s a breeze with Westlope Painting. Instead of painting your house’s lumber and trapping moisture inside the wood, we can expertly apply stains that let the wood expel water from its interior while repelling external moisture.
