Log Home Blasting With Corn Cob & Crushed Glass to Strip Finish, Restore Log Homes & Cabins in MD VA WV
For log homes and log cabins, both corn cob and crushed glass blasting are an environmentally sound alternative approach to wood restoration involving high pressure air and biodegradable corn cob or crushed glass media available in different grit sizes. Log home blasting is performed with crushed glass or corn cob to remove or strip old or unwanted coatings, sealers, stains and paints without the use of chemicals and chemical stripping that may not be suitable for use on some log homes and cabins exhibiting certain conditions. Log home blasting may also be used to correct surface deficiencies found on aged wood. Chemical stripping is a cleaning method that is part of pressure or power washing, and is suitable for log homes and log cabins under certain conditions, but not all homes should be washed. Does your home have an older failing finish or stain that you have been unable to remove yourself? Are you unsure what sealer or stain is on the logs because the prior owner left no information behind? Blasting with crushed glass or cob may be the alternative you need. Log home blasting is a very popular and often a necessary method for removing an unwanted failing sealer or stain.
Specifically, cob or crushed glass blasting acts like a sander with a different effect on the wood. Log home blasting is often used on neglected log homes and log cabins that have experienced rot and fungal decay and should avoid the introduction of water and chemicals from pressure washing. The circumstances requiring the cob or crushed glass blasting process can be determined upon our inspection and evaluation of your log home, cabin or faux log wood siding.
