Choosing The Right Stain For Your North Carolina Log Home
A general rule of thumb when choosing a stain for your log home or timber frame structure is the richer the pigment the more protection it offers your home. With today’s technology and the creation of transoxide and nano pigments your logs can get great protection from the sun and still have full transparency highlighting all the grain of the wood. The pigment in stains acts as a sunscreen for your wood. It prevents the wood from deteriorating from the harmful UV rays of the sun. The sealer part of the stain prevents water from entering the wood, thus preventing rot. The water will either roll right off of the wood or bead up and eventually evaporate. We have tested numerous stains over the years and know them inside and out. We use only stains with the finest pigments and best mildew resistance that money can buy. Which is one of the many reasons we don’t use stains that come from local paint suppliers and big box stores. Whichever stain color you end up choosing it’s important you only use products that were designed and intended only for use on logs.
