Why Media Blasting?
Over time, exposure to the elements can cause wear and tear, leaving these structures in need of restoration. One effective method for restoring a log cabin to its former glory is media blasting. Media blasting, also known as sandblasting, involves using compressed air to propel abrasives against the surface of the cabin.
1. Removing Dirt, Grime, and Finishes: Media blasting can efficiently strip away these unsightly layers, revealing the clean and natural wood beneath. By creating a fresh canvas, media blasting prepares the cabin for further restoration processes.
2. Restoring Natural Wood Grain: Over time, exposure to sunlight and weather conditions can cause the surface of a log cabin to become weathered, resulting in a loss of its natural wood grain. Media blasting helps restore the cabin's original aesthetics by removing the damaged outer layers and revealing the fresh wood underneath. This process allows the natural grain and texture to be seen once again and allows a proper surface for stain and sealant adhesion and performance.
3. Preparing for Protective Coatings: Media blasting is an essential step in preparing the log cabin's surface for protective coatings such as stains and sealants. By removing previous coatings and creating a clean, smooth surface, media blasting ensures better adhesion and longevity of the new protective finish. This process also allows the log cabin owner to select a fresh color or stain, enhancing the cabin's overall aesthetic appeal.
