There is something special about the beauty of a log home or cabin. The natural splendor of the wood combines rustic warmth, coziness and durability with contemporary style and flair. Caring for your log home with high quality exterior wood stains and wood finishes will protect it from the elements and extend the beauty of the wood over the years. World of Stains is an exterior wood stain supplier with many wood care product options to choose from.
Log and timber frame homes can be protected with wood penetrating finishes for a stained look, or film forming wood finishes for a varnished appearance that approaches a fine furniture look. Keep in mind that log home wood products that offer UV protection hold up better to harsh sunlight and weather. Film forming finishes are more susceptible to peeling if not maintained properly, so consider the maintenance recommendations of the manufacturer before making your choice. Once you use a film forming finish on exterior wood, you cannot go back and use a penetrating finish unless the previous coating is completely removed.
