I have a half log siding home that's been somewhat neglected. It's about 20 years old and the Log Jam chinking is pealing off in areas and the whole things needs re-staining. My question is do I have to take all the old Log Jam chinking off, then stain, then rechink, or can I leave some of the chinking on and stain? Then rechink the missing parts and over the old? Thank you!
