Log Homes and Cedar Sided Homes are arguably the most beautiful homes available anywhere.

There is nothing that is as warm and inviting or as close to nature as a Log or Cedar sided home.  Proper care must be taken to extend the lifespan of your investment and keep it looking beautiful.

The Power Washers of North America have certified us in wood restoration.  We will take the time needed to complete your project correctly.

The effects of rain, snow, dew and sun……

These natural occurrences are quickly absorbed into unprotected wood causing it to soften and swell.  The sun’s heat causes drying, which makes the wood shrink.  These cycles of wet and dry, swelling and shrinking, cause wood to warp, split, cup and crack.

Our Restoration Process Includes These Important Steps

  • We provide a written quote explaining all the work to be done.
  • We begin by removing the old sealer/stain with a stripping solution. Our process is environmentally friendly and will not harm your wood, pets, plants or grass.
  • Next, we wash your home with a power washer using low pressure. We do not use high pressure because that will damage your wood.
  • Your home is then treated with a neutralizing agent that will brighten the wood and prepare it for our sealer/stain.
  • Your wood siding must then dry (several days, depending on the weather) to a moisture content of 12% or less. We have sophisticated moisture meters to electronically read the moisture in the wood to insure the wood is dry in order for the sealer/stain to bond properly.
  • We will thoroughly inspect all caulking around windows, doors and other entry points and re-caulk where needed.
  • We then seal/stain your log or cedar siding with a penetrating oil based sealer/stain that will never crack or peel. The sealer/stain protects your wood from the sun's harmful UV rays, resists algae and mildew, and repels water.
  • We stand behind our work with a 3 year prorated limited warranty.
