Rocky Mount, NC (PressExposure) March 30, 2009 -- Taskmasters Wood Maintenance has recently launched their new website to help educate log home owners on the proper procedures and techniques for log home maintenance, preservation and restoration.
Teaming with Footbridge Media, a Florida based web marketing firm, they have put together a comprehensive and most informative website. With "how to" articles for all aspects of log home restoration, there is ample information that explains how to prepare a home for staining, understanding borate treatments, stain comparisons as well as stripping techniques. Also, information on caulking and chinking is available. Properly cleaning of joints, application and tooling and clean up are discussed in detail to help the homeowner understand the importance of not only using products and procedures properly, but to be able to know how to hire a contractor that will do the job properly.
Another exciting area of the website is the photo gallery. Organized in a before and after format, the pictures really show how important regular maintenance is. Examples of wood rot and fungal decay, failing stains on logs and decks and caulk and chinking issues reveal some of the problems the log home owner will face and must address if regular maintenance is neglected.
Many log home owners will take advantage of the new monthly newsletter. Full of information focusing on practical log home tips and tricks that can save time and money, as well as other revealing and interesting ideas. A crossword puzzle and a joke or two can also be found from time to time to hopefully bring a smile. Subscribers can rest assured their email address will be safe and never given to any third parties.
The slideshow exhibits log home restoration, deck restoration as well as cob blasting and roof cleaning projects from the past recent months. Pictures can be expanded to full screen to show up close detail that otherwise would not be able to be seen. A nice feature that allows the homeowner to really see what a particular restoration or preservation procedure can accomplish.
Finally, the website is for the log homeowner. To not only discover how each process is preformed, but also to allow the homeowner the ability to make informed decisions on important issues such as which process is best for their project, what type of finish can and should be applied, are preservative or mildewcides needed, and when should their log home restoration be done? All important questions to answer before moving forward with a preventive maintenance program, a partial or full restoration or a preservation project.
Hopefully the log homeowner will enjoy and appreciate the effort put into the website. It was built with the best intentions and the homeowner in mind.
