Logs are an elegant and beautiful
addition to the look and feel of a deck railing and house architecture.
Log railings are challenging to keep looking nice and there has been
siginifican evolution in the products used to treat logs. Modern stains
and finishes are highly transparent, sheen forming or flat, and easy to
maintain when done properly.
Log rail fabrication is a time consuming process but the results can be
amazing. We can replace posts, horizontal receiving rails and complete
rail sections depending on what's needed.

Log restoration is difficult and often not worth the effort on older
log railings. We can often replace the railing section and leave the
log posts in place.

Railing replacement can actually be
better economically over the long term if it is done with maintenance
free materials. We can also save you money up front with our range of
inexpensive, prefabbed metal panels and cable. In many cases we can use
the existing posts as well which saves more money while retaining some
of the original character of the structure.

Re-staining logs is
probably the most inefficient deck practices. We have to charge a
relatively high price to be able to properly stain a a railing, and
since most railings contain horizontal surfaces, they often need to be
restained more than every 4 years. That being said we do offer rail
staining or painting, and use the best materials and practices
Key features of our rail staining:
- Most cost efficient solution on most existing logs.
- Proper log maintenance can produce a high quality translucent
- Older logs can be prepared, scraped, washed and re-stained
using a solid "opague" stain which makes many wooden railings look new
