Log Home Restoration & Maintenance
Serving All of Your Log Home Needs
Media Blasting Logs and Siding
This process is utilized when the stain of the log home has failed, resulting in gray weathering or the beginning signs of wood decay beginning to surface. We remove the top layer of wood by blasting a mix of crushed glass and garnet, revealing the like-new wood beneath. The media blasting can also be deployed when a homeowner is ready for a lighter or more drastic color finish than is currently on their home.
Log Home Chinking
Chinking is the process of filling cracks in between the logs of a cabin. Chinking involves first installing a product’s called Backer Rod. Backer Rod is essentially small strips of foam that fill these cracks and checks in the wood. After, we will apply the chinking itself. That is an acrylic sealant that is flexible and adheres to logs throughout the movement of the logs during the seasons.
A sealed home is not only a warm one but an energy – efficient one. Our staff can use thermal tools to identify areas of your home that may be losing heat or that are not correctly sealed when building the home itself. Our team is deployed with the best in technology as well as flexible sealants for this to ensure your energy savings start today.
Log Home Staining is absolutely critical in the care of your home. Most suppliers and stain providers recommend a coat of stain every 3-4 years. Staying ahead of this will not only save the log homeowner from expensive repairs to the logs but preserve the appearance and the natural finish of these beautiful homes. MMB has teamed up with the best names in the industry, such as Prema-Chink, Sashco, and PPG to name a few, to offer hundreds of color variations as well as price levels of stain to meet any project needs.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
How can I protect my Log Cabin against wood boring insects?
Mountain Media Blasting always mixes an anti-boring insect additive into its stain applications. If your house is brand new or the logs have been blasted, we will use a product called Shell Guard before we stain, and this product will protect for the life of your home as long as the stain is properly maintained!
Is media blasting environmentally safe and friendly?
During our Log Home Renovation we used a recycled crushed glass compound from Tru Abrasives. Finer than sand, this product is easy to clean up and provides no risk to animals or humans!
Why choose to purchase a log home?
Log Home Purchases can be generational investments. Proper care and maintenance will provide you with an amazing real estate asset for generations to come.
My log home's stain is too dark after many applications, is there a way to lighten it up?
Yes! The best step here is to blast all the existing stain off the exterior of the home and start fresh with light vibrant logs.
