Question:


Dear Log Dr.:

We are replacing 20 logs in our home. The origional logs are pine and we are going back with Cypress. The logs that are being instaled seem to be wet. When the contractor hits them they have wetness coming out. How long before we can Borate and stain?? Moving into the rainy season as well here. What should we do?

Best Regards

Answer:

Borate them while they are wet. Install new logs and let them dry over winter before staining them in the spring. You might want to use some PS100 from Perma Chink before staining them next spring.
