Environmentally Friendly Log Home Restoration
IWR Co. uses environmentally friendly log home restoration techniques. We do not use harsh chemical strippers and are switching to using only environmentally friendly finishes. These chemicals can be very harmful or toxic to humans and our environment.
Our Log Home Restoration process involves four steps: preparation, preservation, staining, and sealing.
We have developed a process that will achieve the best results for your log home.
Mike Denman, owner of IWR Co. fine tuned the procedures used over the past 20 years and developed his own unique system called the Ozzy. The ozzy helps to hand sand your log home to produce a smooth log finish and remove existing log home stain. By not using chemical strippers or media blasting (this should only be used as a last option, please read below) the longevity of your logs will be more secure. Ozzying leaves the surface of your logs smooth to the touch and is easier to clean up compared to media blasting or chemical stripping.
