Log Refinishing & Restoration
Log homes are often passed down through generations, which is why we offer refinishing and restoration services for log homes in the Down East area. Our way of refinishing not only saves you time and money, it is environmentally friendly.
Media blasting is an innovative new way of stripping logs by using ground up, corn, glass bead, and walnut shells. Media blasting involves a light sanding, and because media is less abrasive than sand the process will not pit the logs. Afterwards, it can be re-used as mulch (assuming the stripped finish doesn’t contain lead).
Media granules provide a soft, less dusty, and environmentally safe abrasive. Media granules are biodegradable, non-toxic, and non-sparking. When all is said and done, media blasting makes stripping easier and safer than ever before.
You benefit in many ways:
• Since no water is involved, you can apply preservatives and stains immediately.
• No harmful chemicals or damaging water will be forced through the walls.
• The surface is ideal for excellent penetration and adhesion of coatings.
• The media is non-toxic and biodegradable.
Some log homes need some extra attention after withstanding years of Maine weather, and it can be difficult to keep up with this maintenance. Log restoration transforms the oxidized, weathered logs into beautiful, newly finished wood in a gentle and environmentally friendly manner. We perform log restoration services in the Northeastern U.S.
As you can see, a restoration project transforms your log home and increases it’s longevity. It’s almost a whole new home!
