Bob from Cottage Blast did a wonderful job on our cottage in Haliburton. Our western red cedar siding was pretty beat up and needed something done. The sand blasting brought the wood back to it's original lustre. After blasting, Bob applied paint with a spray gun. We are very happy with the final result.
Stain or paint could be used but we opted for paint hoping that option would rquire less maintenance in the future.
It was all done for a very fair price and I would highly recommend Cottage Blast to anyone experiencing wood siding woes.
