Staining and Chinking
Staining - This two coat application helps to ensure consistent color development on your walls and highlights the grain and texture of your wood. From the day that you apply it to the many years of durability that you get from it, this stain will distinguish your home.
A protective clear coat adds depth and clarity to the wood grain and offers you a choice of just how much gloss you would like on the finish. The smooth surface of the clear coat repels dirt and dust, and makes walls easier to clean when cleaning becomes necessary.
Chinking / Sealing - This step seals the open gaps between logs to eliminate heat loss and air infiltration. It stretches, compresses, and tightly adheres to the wood surfaces to make your walls weather tight and attractive.
