Log home restoration Montana

There is no secret in retaining the beauty of your log home.
A little care and maintenance along with the use of quality products
designed specifically for log homes will not only keep your
home looking great but will also preserve the integrity of the
logs and help prevent costly repairs. You can do no better than
selecting any of Perma-Chink Systems’ Family of Environmen-
tally Friendly Log Home Products.
Lifeline Ultra-2™ followed with a clear topcoat of Lifeline
Advance™ Satin or Gloss combine to form the ultimate
exterior finish system for your log home. Through many years
of research, development and experience, Perma-Chink Systems
has perfected waterborne finishes that provide the following
benefits.
1. Lifeline stains and topcoats provide the best-looking
finish you can find. They distinguish your home by highlighting
the grain and texture to bring out the natural beauty of your
wood. Compare them to any finish you can find. Others have
tried to copy the look and performance of Lifeline but never
succeeded.

2. Lifeline’s high-performance polymers encase the
wood fibers to protect the surface, where the protection
is needed. Lifeline forms a flexible coating that expands
and contracts to accommodate seasonal expansion and
shrinking of the wood.
3. Pigments and Ultraviolet (UV) inhibitors are
important components for protecting wood. Although UV
inhibitors help extend the life of the finish, it is the pigments
that provide long-term protection against UV rays
while highlighting the natural wood grain appearance.
Both Lifeline Ultra-2 and Lifeline EXterior contain these
necessary, valuable pigments.
As the finish wears off, pigment weathers away at
the same time. Then, as maintenance coats are applied,
you avoid the build-up of pigment that occurs with conventional
exterior finishes. The result - Your home still
looks as good after years of maintenance as the first time
you finished it. Conventional exterior finishes build up
layer after layer of pigment on the wood, making your
house darker each time you apply another maintenance
coat. The Lifeline system gives you the choice during
maintenance coats to use pigmented Lifeline and/or clear
Lifeline Advance topcoats.
4. All Lifeline stains breathe to allow the wood to
dry naturally as they protect wood from absorbing moisture
from rain, snow and humidity, which also helps to
minimize checking.
5. Lifeline finishes are easy to apply, release no toxic
fumes, are not flammable and clean up easily with soap
and water.
How to Maintain Your Exterior Lifeline
Finish?
Initial application to your exterior is two coats of
Lifeline EXterior or Lifeline Ultra-2, followed by one or
two clear topcoats of Lifeline Advance Satin or Gloss
protective finish. During inspection and cleaning evaluate
the condition of the finish to determine if any areas of
the home may need another coat of Lifeline Advance Satin
or Gloss.
After these applications of Lifeline, your exterior
