Bear Creek Log Home Restoration - Blue Ridge Cabin Staining
At Bear Creek Restoration, we can stain the outside of your Blue Ridge log home as well as the interior! Our Blue Ridge log home restoration contractors can stain wood trim, Tongue and Groove paneling, and other wood objects. Whether you are a Blue Ridge homeowner or a builder, our water-based stains and sealers allow us to give you an even, finished appearance with a minimum of disruption in your schedule.
We take great care to protect everything that isn't supposed to get stained. This includes windows, doorknobs, thresholds, plants, rockwork, cars, and ornaments.
It may seem obvious, but Blue Ridge wood staining is very different from painting. Sure, we use many of the same tools, but so do framers and trim carpenters. The difference in procedure and quality is obvious. Don't rely on a painter to provide you with log cabin staining services - contact the experts who know and understand log homes: Bear Creek Log Home Restoration.
Blue Ridge Log Home Maintenance
Blue Ridge log and wood sided homes require regular maintenance to look their best and for the stain to perform like it's supposed to. In addition to cleaning the surface of your home, most Blue Ridge log homes also require several other annual maintenance items, such as treating for carpenter bee's in the spring, cleaning the exterior windows and screens, cleaning out gutters, etc.
For years, our customers have been asking us to present to them a predictable form of maintenance for their log and wood sided homes. After some extensive testing with a few of our clients, we are happy to offer the Bear Creek Annual Maintenance Program. Please look over the specifications we offer and contact us as soon as possible to schedule your maintenance and get rid of your headaches!
Blue Ridge Corn Cob Blasting
Cob Blasting is a high-tech way to remove dirt, mildew and old finishes. The word "blasting" is a little scary when it's used in the same sentence as "your house". Not much, though, could be gentler on your Blue Ridge log home!
At Bear Creek Restoration, our contractors use between 35-100 psi to cob blast, compared to 500-1500 psi for a proper pressure washing. Some painters use up to 3500 psi!
Rather than use pressure to clean your house, cob blasting uses tiny little grains of ground up, dried corncobs. The great benefit of using corncob is that it's so light; it doesn't eat up the wood like sand blasting. It takes just a little bite with each grain, leaving a lightly textured surface, which we then buff even smoother.
We can use the blaster inside log homes to clean up the wood from stacking. This is much nicer than pressure washing the inside, with the associated moisture problems of having all that water inside trying to evaporate.
