11 quick and simple questions if you're considering a log home restoration.
Log home restoration can be tricky. To bring it back to its former glory, there are some key elements you should know. If you’re buying an existing log home, try to obtain a maintenance record to help determine whether new log treatments are compatible with old ones.
Compatibility is important; without knowing product chemistries, your only option is to strip the logs to bare wood and start from scratch.
