"We were particularly happy with the grinding work done on our made the logs look so much better! We really liked the way you fixed that one lower log that had the section with bark and wood sticking out (like a big gouge)."
Bob & Sue Burke, Carson City, NV

?Two years after Jeff came and cleaned, re-stained and applied a protective sealant, my log house looks as fresh and new as ever! Not bad for a 40 year old place that was left to the wind and rains of the Pacific Northwest. I highly recommend Jeff?s work.?
Sandra Schugren, Gig Harbor, WA

?Our log home was originally treated with a log oil finish. The house would look great for a couple of weeks after treatment, at best. Dirt and dust would begin to accumulate on the sticky tops of the logs. Within a year, the logs would give the appearance of being dry and aged.
Fortunately we found Teresa Millwee, of Northwest Log Home Care. Teresa said that she and her crew could make our home look better than new. We were excited and contracted her to strip, stain, seal and chink the entire outside of the house. Teresa and her crew took pride in their work and presented us with a finished product that exceeded our expectations. We were so happy with her performance that we again hired her to seal and chink the interior of our house and garage . Once again, the finished product exceeded our expectations. The finish makes the logs look beautiful. The chinking provides definition to the logs and gives an artistic flare to the house and has made the house impervious to outside noise. Even the sound of the wind has been nearly eliminated.
We have hired Teresa to remove all of our carpet and laminate flooring and replace it with solid unfinished hardwood flooring. Teresa will then sand and finish the floor with Permachink Sure Shine Floor Finish. We expect the result to be as exceptional as past performances.
If you are having your home restored back to life, or you are providing your new home with its first treatment, you owe it to yourself and your home to allow Teresa Millwee, her crew, and Northwest Log Home Care to lovingly care for your home. My recommendation is given without hesitation. feel free to give us a call.?
