Default Log cabin

I got a log cabin coming up that I am going to restain the outside of and was just curious as to what the best way to prep it would be. We dont see to many of those where I'm at so I do not have much experience with it.

Its just a clear coat stain on their now and that is what is going back on. I was planning on spraying on a deck stain stripper on rinse it than neutralizing it and restain.

What other steps should be taken any advice is appreciated.

Thanks

Cob blasting is the best way to remove all the old coating.

I'm confused about what is product is on the cabin now. Is it a transparent/semitransparent stain or is it a clear coat? For the former, we've used the deck/siding stain remover system as you described. If it's an actual clear coat, a film-forming product like a varnish, what we'd do depends a lot on the condition of the existing coating. If it's starting to fail, I'd agree that something like cob blasting would be needed.

We've done a number of re-stain projects on home with stained cedar siding. Using deck/siding stain stripper and neutralizer (if necessary) has worked well for us. What we've tried to do is both remove failed stain and lighten darkened (weathered) areas.

Use a professional grade stripper please.
Don't buy into to the watered down products available at paint stores you will spend a fortune using an inferior product.

www.pressuretek.com their product "f-18" is a great one.

Also www.theprosealerstore.com product "HD-80"

You won't be sorry.. wet surface, apply stripper dwell about 10 minutes, medium pressure rinse, apply neutralizer and final rinse.
