Mountain winds can be pretty fierce, especially in the winter.  After only 2+ years the stain on our log siding was noticeablely faded and worse, black mildew appeared in areas on the back/north side of our home.

Gulp, due to the height of the house, we had to hire a crew to spiff it up.  They started by power washing the whole thing.  That translates into a MESS.....soggy wood pulp everywhere, including on the window screens which was a real pain to remove.

But, here's the finished product, AFTER two coats of stain on every wood surface and lots and lots of elbow grease by yours truly cleaning the windows.  We upgraded the quality and application process of the staining and expect to have a fairly maintanence free house for at least the next 4-5 years.
