Prepared Surfaces - Custom Sandblasting and Staining -  705 286 4714 - preparedsurfaces@msn.com  
  When cottagers or home owners decide to build, most often wood is the material of choice.  Dampness, mould and insect invasion  are all enemies of wood, and Bill found that most contractors merely treated wood with a coat of oil-based paint or stain, and walked away feeling the job was complete. Owners however soon realized that the paint was peeling and fading, insects were boring into the logs of their homes, or stain was losing it's colour.  Prepared Surfaces is a fully insured outfit that specializes in the preparation of surfaces, for the staining and painting of cottages, homes and industrial buildings.  
Log homes are a living breathing entity.  With our huge changes in temperature, any wood contracts and expands, but it also needs to breath.  For that reason, Prepared Surfaces uses top quality water soluble stains on log homes.  Water based stains let the logs breath. Moisture, expansion and contraction are also the culprits in creating crumbling, or gaps in the chinking between logs.  We can remove the old chinking and replace it for you.
