Our older log home was stained with a dark oil based pigment product seven years ago. This has mostly baked off under sun glare (off the six months of standing snow in northern North Dakota). The local vendor tells me that I can use a latex stain over the old stuff if we buff off any shine. The logs look dry and very little of the old finish remains. We're thinking of Log Wash from Perma Chink followed by Sherwin Williams Woodscapes Latex Stain. Does this sound reasonable?


You can call Timeless Wood Care Products at 800-564-2987. They have a couple of other products that you may want to use instead of Log Wash. S-100 or Mean Green.
