Makes The Wood Look New
Refinishing a home or any piece of furniture will bring some life back to the wood. Log home refinishing will help to make your home look freshly built or repainted. Refinishing helps your home to have a better curb appeal and increase its value.
Those who build or live in a log cabin or home do so because of its natural beauty and uniqueness. Refinishing can help the wood look polished, and bright, and make your log home a statement piece in the area. Helping to keep your home looking its best may take some money and time, but it will be worth it in the long run.
Restoration Doesn’t Let Chemicals Into Your Home
If you have painted any room or applied stain to a deck, you have probably noticed that usually come with strong fumes and chemicals that require ventilation. While a stain or refinishing product may have chemicals in it, these chemicals will not seep into your home.
Log home refinishing will help give your logs a consistent color and avoid your home looking patchy or rotting.
Prevents Wood Deterioration
Wood deterioration can come after trees have been cut down and are exposed to harsh weather. Refinishing the wood or applying a sealant can help slow or prevent the deterioration of wood. Before Rosewood can begin your log home refinishing project, we will complete an inspection to check for damages and repair them before they become more serious.
Refinishing can help prevent further damage to your wood. If the logs are sealed appropriately they will remain in good condition and be more resistant to environmental factors.
Which Is Better For Your Home, Stain Or Seal?
Stain penetrates the pores of the wood and enhances the natural color of the wood. Stains give protection from UV light, are water-repellant, and often last longer than sealants. Wood stain tends to be more expensive than sealant but is a good investment to help the appearance of the wood.
Wood sealer is a transparent barrier to repel water, insects, and more. They are not as effective at blocking light as a stain, which means that the color of your wood could fade faster. Sealants will need to be reapplied every few years.
Choosing the right stain or sealant will depend on a few factors, the climate you live in, what color you want your wood to be, and how old your home is. If you want help determining what stain is best for your specific home, contact our professionals.
When To Know Your Log Home Needs Refinishing
Each log home will have different needs and different deterioration rates. Depending on the darkness of your stain will determine how often it will need to be reapplied. A general rule of thumb is that your home should be resealed or restrained every couple of years. Rosewood offers annual maintenance and application for your log home. Don’t put off caring for your home any longer.
