What Is Wood Weathering And Do You Need To Do It?

Wood is a great material to use in building projects, from furniture and decks to log homes. Not only does wood have a classic look that never goes out of style, but it is also strong and easy to maintain.

Log Homes; A Special Breed

Log homes are a special breed, anyone who owns one will tell you that!  Why do people choose to live in a home that defies traditional modern home building?  The answer is simple:  Log homes provide a natural environment that can take the breathe away from anyone, especially a first time visitor to a modern log home design.  But no one talks about the maintenance of these "works of art", the protective coatings that will be needed to make these structures their best, not just when they are new but for the life of the log home.
