Preserving your log home is key to keeping the weather from affecting the integrity of your home. The term “media” is a general term used for the various types of materials available to abrasively remove or strip existing finishes or weathering from the logs. This process prepares the logs for staining and finishing. Media blasting is labor intensive, generally very messy, and experience is a must in order to keep the wood intact. This method leaves a minimal texture to the wood, but nothing substantial. We typically like to follow up blasting with buffing and sanding to return the wood back to a smoother state. Because we care about your property and the environment, all the materials that Midwest Elite LHS uses are biodegradable.
