While we don’t do many whole house strip projects anymore, we have a great customer who was willing to wait over a year for Topcoat to be the wood loving restoration team on their heavenly home in the mountains.
The home is a log cabin with a pretty brutal sun and wind exposure. The existing coating is a badly weathered and failing Sikkens finish system. We are performing a low pressure chemical strip and ph balance on the home, after which we will manually sand the trim and logs to prepare the perfect test palette for Benjamin Moore’s Arborcoat stain. The entire deck system will also be treated with Arborcoat, so its a great opportunity to test a couple of the Arborcoat lines under some harsh real world conditions which we will be able to follow up on and observe the products’ performance over time, from season to season.
