What Primers &
Paints Should Be Used for a Log House?
main purpose of applying paint to the log house is to hide the ugly or
irregular patterns noticed on them as well as to protect the wood. So we must
try to understand the opacity of the paint that helps to hide the surface
before placing an order for them.
ability of the paint to sit on the surface or otherwise adhere to the surface
is called as adhesion.
you ever noticed that some small drops form on the surface of the wall or
ceiling of your log house, wherever the paint is applied with rollers? This
property of the paint to form droplets is called as the splatter resistance.
we have discussed more about stain resistance on various types of luster. What
does that mean? The resistance it offers to paint most dirt and grime is called
as the most stain resistant.
explained above that certain types of luster are easy to clean. This
flexibility offered by paint to remove stains is easily called the stain
removal ability of the coating.
painted, it should last a long time for years, at least until the entire log
house or cabin is repainted. If the paint could maintain its natural color and
does not show bright spots even after washing for a few times, then it is said
to paint to have a high resistance to abrasion.
types of paints are softer and also tend to be more flexible, thus allowing the
paint to expand and contrast with different types of weathers such as hot and
cold climates. These are best for outdoor use with its color retention ability,
in addition to being very resistant to the spraying process.
are made of more resin to resist repetitive cleaning on the surface of the log
house. They are very resistant to huge wear, but would be suffering with a
capacity of low resistance to UV rays. So it does not go well with the
exterior, but would be completely perfect for indoor use.
order to allow the subject to rest quietly, these types of paints are
introduced into the market, so that they are applicable both inside and outside
the log house. They have a high resistance against the nature of high UV
absorption which makes them the best protection for inside and outside walls of
the log house. The glazes are easier to clean and would also give low odor.
