Client Testimonials & Reviews

"Utilizing their extraordinary talents (teamwork, meticulous attention to detail, knowledge of stains, paints and wood), Ron and his crew transformed our log home into a better-than-new showpiece. Ron himself is brilliant: creative, thoughtful, deliberate and a solid leader of his team. His understanding of colors, his vision for the end product and his ideas for efficiently accomplishing what we agreed to for this project enabled him to deliver a product that exceeded our dreams. The crew is delightful and very caring. We highly recommend Northern Log Home Restoration, Inc."

“Thank You! We are overwhelmed! The cabin looks beautiful! I think we were shocked! We had gotten so used to it the way it was. It looks new and fresh! The caulking is excellent! It is so even and smooth! The doors blend in so well. They looked so ad before. We are both very happy that we chose your company. You did what you said you would do and you did it well! Many long hours of hard work went into it. Thank you Ron and EVERYONE! We knew from the minute you arrived that our cabin was in good hands! Everyone knew their job and went right to work. You were all so nice and friendly. We are very happy. The windows are so clear and clean and thank you for doing the skylights!! We would definitely recommend your company to others looking for a log restoration!”

"Northern Log Home Restoration was the only business we contacted regarding having our log home stained that even mentioned having the home media blasted before staining due to the condition of the finish on our home. We also had a few known rotted logs which was something they would be able to take care of. We decided that this was the route we needed to take to get our recently purchased home back to it's original beauty. Ron and his crew were wonderful to work with. The guys were always very friendly (even when one of our dogs ate the lunch of one of them) and very hard workers, no matter how hot and humid it got.

Our home looks awesome and we look forward to having the maintenance of our home in the future taken care of by them."

"I highly recommend Northern Log Cabin Restoration. I am a perfectionist and had never hired a contractor that lived up to my expectations prior to working with Ron and his team. Their attention to detail and dedication to their craft is top notch. When we purchased our log cabin we knew the exterior was in need of help. Ron and Jayson met me on-site, walked through all the recommended repairs in great detail, and provided me with a very fair quote. We ended up staining the entire home, replacing the rotten deck rail system with a beautiful custom built log rail system, rehabing and replacing the decking, refurbishing the interior of the gazebo, and replacing the gutter system. Beyond their dedication to perfection, Ron's entire team is great to work with. They keep you up-to-date on progress, contact you immediately when unexpected conditions are discovered, and work with you and your budget to come up with solutions. Their job site is always clean and their guys are friendly and engaging. I cannot say enough about how pleased I am with Northern Log Home Restoration. Thank you."

“Ron first worked on my log cabin two years ago. He corrected a poor initial stain job and restored my cabin to what is nothing less than amazing. Timely, courteous, fair, honest and above all knows what he is doing. Great crew. Could not recommend Northern Log Home Restoration more highly.”

- RJ - Lake Vermilion, MN

“Ron and his crew at Northern Log Home Restoration did a great job restoring the finish of our log cabin near Cook, Minnesota. We purchased a hand-scribed log cabin only to learn later that the former owners had not cared for the exterior of the cabin as was needed. The old latex stain they used had failed and was causing log rot and an unsightly black appearance. Northern Log Home came in and did a complete exterior restoration, restoring our cabin to a like-new appearance with an oil-based stain. Two years after the restoration, they came out and re-stained as was recommended. The logs are now really beautiful and shedding water well. Ron really knows his stuff and I’d highly recommend him and his crew to anyone who needs log restoration or maintenance. They sis a great job for us and we will continue to use them for all our future log maintenance needs.”

"We had scheduled our cabin to be sandblasted for over 6 months. A week before our cabin was to be sandblasted the company cancelled our job.

We received Ron’s name from an acquaintance of ours. He told us to try calling him but it was unlikely he would be able to do our job on such a short notice. We called and Ron was very busy but said he would try and put us in his schedule. He started on our project 2 weeks after we called him.

He gave us a firm quote, answered all of our questions and made some recommendations (which we appreciated). We told Ron the color we were trying to achieve and he took it upon himself to find a color that would work. Of course, he sent us a picture for us to approve.

He prepped, sandblasted and stained our cabin in less than 3 weeks. He did everything he said he would do. He was very neat and left the job clean and tidy.

The cabin looks 100% better and we are so very happy we used Northern Log Home Restoration! Everything happens for a reason."

Northern treated our home as if it was their own and transformed our log home to a beautiful finish. We look forward to a long and rewarding relationship."

"After running into very big problems with our log home that got treated with the wrong products for nearly twenty years, Ron and his crew restored our house to it’s original beauty; actually after Ron finished the job it looked better than new!!! It was a really big endeavor, but his crew was fantastic, friendly, reliable, punctual and very, very hardworking. Any communication with Ron was fast, easy and we always got our questions answered. Northern Log Home Restoration, Inc. went above and beyond to restore our home and we would highly recommend them to anyone. We feel lucky to have come upon such a standup company and are looking forward to a lifelong relationship with them in order to keep our home pristine.
