But finding the right stain, with the right colors and a lasting sealant with a cleaning solution that offers brilliant colors is a big consideration.

Whether the home is new and being stained and sealed for the first time or whether your home is being enhanced – or you even want to change the color of your stain for a different look – Perma-Chink offers a careful guide about how to pre-treat the logs, clean them and then apply your stains and sealants.
 
This guide is being offered to Honest Abe Log Homeowners before it is being make available to the general public.
