Media Blasting - Corn Cob - Glass - Sand

Why should I have my logs Cob, Glass or Sand Blasted?
Step one in the restoration of your log home is the removal of the failed stains and finishes. The use of media is a dry process, in which media ( corncob, glass or sand) is thrown under direct air pressure to the surface of the logs or siding to reveal fresh wood. Northern Log Home Restoration will perform a test blast to determine which type of media should be used. Every log structure is different.

Glass media is 100% recycled crushed glass. The use of post-consumer glass directly benefits the environment by reducing landfill waste. The manufacturing process reduces the glass and removes contaminates and waste by-products from glass. These particles are as fine as sand from the beach. Glass media is non-hazardous, non-toxic and completely inert. Glass media is safe to use around water, shrubs, humans and animals.


Cob media is finely ground corn cob. Unlike sand, cob media will not etch glass, which makes it safe to use around windows. Cob media won't remove paint on metal edging or colored trim. Cob media is non-toxic and 100% biodegradable making this an eco-friendly product.

When any type of blasting being performed a tarp will be placed around the perimeter of the home/cabin and this will collect 90% off the media. Then the media collected and disposed of after use. Because of the air pressure there may be some media/dust entering your home depending on the craftsmanship of the structure. Remember this is dry media not water . This eliminates the chance of internal water damage to your home.
