If you want your homes stain to look good and work like it should for years to come, youll want to inspect the exterior of your home twice a year. Heres how:
1. Eyeball It
2. Do the Water Toss
Regardless of what you find during your inspection, the home should receive a maintenance coat at least every three years. Once the stain starts to peel and fade, you have no choice but to strip it down and apply fresh stain, says Mike Lautner of M&M Log Home Care.
