Taskmasters Wood Maintenance - Beaufort Log Home Restoration
Being a penetrating stain, rather than leaving traffic ware patterns, drips, and lap marks, it completely absorbs into the wood leaving nothing to blister or peel. It simply wares out. Depending on location and weather conditions a typical application should last 4 to 5 years on vertical Beaufort surfaces (walls and railings) and 2 to 3 years on horizontal Beaufort surfaces (roof and decks).
If the homeowner wants a longer lasting finish, consideration should be given to semi-solid and solid stains. They will last longer but you lose the beautiful Beaufort wood grain showing through. And they too are "film forming stains".
The tradeoff is, if you enjoy the natural wood grain look, the home will need more attention.
If the wood grain look is not as important and a more solid finish is acceptable, the home can be attended to less frequently.
Beaufort Roof Cleaning
A general misconception among the Beaufort public is the fact that discolored roofs are the result of age and deterioration that soon will require replacement. To the contrary, discoloration is the result of an air-borne fungus known as Gloeocapsa Magma. It can be identified as dark or black staining or streaks and is most noticeable on lighter colored roofs, but can be found on most any roof. Gloeocapsa Magma feeds on humidity, heat and some form of nutrient. The first two are climate related (southeastern US.) The nutrient can come from Beaufort pollutants, fallen leaves and limestone found in the shingle itself.
