TimberSeal Log Home Restoration and Maintenance Services Include:
We provide both chemical and mechanical finish removal for log homes based on your homes needs. Chemical finish removal works well on the majority of finishes and is often a more cost effective method of removal. This is a low pressure approach to removing the finish by allowing the product to dissolve the existing finish thereby allowing us to safely wash it from the surface. On a more stubborn finish such as a heavy acrylic media blasting will often be required. Media blasting is the general term that describes a process of corn cob blasting or glass blasting your log home. With this process a blasting media specific to the finish to be removed is used to essentially sand blast it off the surface. Media grit and size will determine how aggressive the process is overall but with this we can remove the failed finish and leave a smooth ready to stain surface on your home. With more aggressive blasting (think paint removal!) some extensive sanding will often be needed prior to sealing.
CAULKING / CHINKING:
Energy efficiency is of utmost importance to modern day log home owners and the caulking and chinking within your home has a direct effect on your cost of comfort. TimberSeal provides caulking and chinking services for new and existing log homes in addition to performing cutouts and repairs. It is imperative that your logs be air and water tight. Annual maintenance and checkups will insure that your home remains warm, comfortable and affordable year round.
While log homes are absolutely stunning in appearance they do have a few more concerns than your standard brick or vinyl home. Being that the home is constructed of wood inside and out insects are always a major concern. TimberSeal provides borate application services and can install impel rods as needed to protect your home from Mother Natures wood loving critters. Borates act as an insurance policy to your home in one sense. Once applied they recrystallize inside the log and remain dormant unless moisture absorbs into the log itself. Should moisture enter the log the borate becomes soluble and acts as a poison to wood boring insects such as carpenter ants and powder post beetles. When the log dries out and borate then again recrystalizes thereby remaining active but dormant in the wood.
Impel rods are a compressed form of a borate that work well on log ends and highly susceptible areas of your log home.
STAINING & SEALING
The most important part of your log home lies in the sealant applied to the exterior. It’s the barrier between mother nature and your home that protects the log from the elements. Applying a good quality finish properly and performing maintenance and inspections as to the performance of the finish is imperative to insuring your home outlasts you. When finishes are allowed to surpass their expected life damage can set in that can costs thousands to repair. If your in need of maintenance or restoration of your homes finish give us a call today at 1-866-WOODCARE.
