This project is in Bellaire, MI near the Schuss Ski Mountain. The home and detached garage were previously stained with Sikkens two years ago. We were called upon to do a full restoration. You will see in the pictures some before, during, and after. We chose a sodium hydroxide stripper followed by oxalic acid to neutralize and brighten and then we osborn brushed the entire home to get to a wood surface that is perfect for applying a new stain.
