THE TIMBERSEAL PROCESS TO STAINING YOUR CEDAR HOME
Successfully staining your cedar sided home (whether solid or transparent) is dependent on proper prep and finishing procedures. A home that is not prepared properly PRIOR to staining is destined for finish failure early on in it’s life. This then creates a substantial amount of work to remedy. The TimberSeal approach to staining and maintaining your cedar focuses heavily on the preparation procedures first and foremost. This includes a very thorough cleaning of the homes exterior to remove any and all dirt, debris and surface contamination. In addition we apply a treatment to kill off any mold and mildew spores and remove any growth that is on the home. If the mold and mildew is not removed odds are it will bleed back through and continue growing on your home in a matter of a few months to a year.
Below is an example of mildew that has formed on cedar siding and the result after cleaning and treating the area.
