Log Home Finishing

Exhaust Fans

We use large exhaust fans to control dust.

A common complaint of owning a log home can be endless years of saw dust. 

This can be avoided during the log finishing process. 

Before our clear coating begins we air blast dust away. This process can actually take a few days and man is it worth it! Once everything is super clean, we start clear coating.

Tools and Equipment

Specialty brushes we use to clean house logs prior to applying the stain or clear coats.

Log Finishing Tools

We use industrial fans to push and pull sawdust and over-spray out of the house so the finish is as smooth and dust free as possible. This also massively reduces log dust after you are living in the home.

Flood Coating

This is how we apply stain or paint to wood. We use a combination of airless and HVLP  sprayers. The idea is to  soak, saturate the wood with stain, paint or clear coat until the product is full. We do this in 3 stages around the log building

Log Home Staining (before after) Timber Pro Coatings

Here’s a before/ after example of a Douglas Fir log shop stained and clear coated using Timber Pro Coatings.

This is a 3 coat process. Each coat is flood-coated, which means getting a log to soak as much stain as it will absorb per coat.  
As the stain absorbs into the wood you back brush it out until there are no drips or sagging (until it looks even and absorbed).  We do this three times around the building.
By the time you are on the 3rd coat, the wood is what we call “full” which means you no longer see any dry spots.
