Before you lay a single log down be sure to treat all your log home lumber wood with high quality preservatives that will protect the wood from cracking, splitting, natural swelling and internal decay. The Sashco and Sikkens lines of wood preservatives feature a number of industrial strength formulas specifically blended to treat and preserve log home and log cabin cypress logs.
Sashco features a terrific selection of wood preservatives including Cascade, CPR Cleaner & Brightener and Penetreat, a borate-based preservative that forms a shell of protection for log home wood. Each Sashco product is designed to handle a specific stage of log home wood evolution including protecting new wood from harmful UV rays, brightening uncoated wood and treating aging or decaying wood. Sashco Impel Rods are a unique and effective wood preservative system that acts to control internal decaying via highly concentrated, solid forms of water-diffusible borate.
The Sikkens log treatment formula is a clear, temporary waterborne exterior finish that is designed to stabilize wood and minimize splitting and cracking. Apply before building your log home and be confident knowing your logs are well protected from the stress of natural home settling and harsh weather conditions.
