J.D.'s Log Home Restoration & Chinking in Grand Rapids Sandblasting staining chinking caulking painting preserving power washing repairs sealing in Deer River Sandblasting staining chinking caulking painting preserving power washing repairs sealing in Hill City Having recently completed an extensive exterior finishing project on my home on Leech Lake, it gives me great pleasure to write this letter of recommendation for Craig Maturi, owner of J.D's Log Home Restoration & Chinking.

Through extensive experience gained during my 37 year career as a general building contractor in Minnesota, i have had the occasion to work with countless exterior finishing contractors on a wide variety of building projects. I am pleased to say that i have seldom encountered the overall "caliber of consiousness" that i witnessed during the two week period that Craig and his crew worked on my home. 

First and formost, Craig is very knowledgable about his profession and willingly shares this knowledge with the owner during the original assesment stage of project. Accordingly, i had absolutely no doubt that his work would be thorough and that he would be using the proper, high quality products.

Throughout the project, Craig and his crew were friendly, polite, expeditious, in their work and excelled at maintaining a neat and tidy jobsite. Furthermore, Craig was totally concerned about the quality of workmanship and took painsto go the extra mile, assuring that i would have "1st rate job" when they were finished.

In our increasingly frantic world, Craig is a man of character who not only takes pride in his work but is willing to put forth the effort needed to assure the satisfaction of his customer.

Questions & Answers

How often should we stain our home?

Every 3-5 years depending on variables.

Does my home need to be media blasted (stripped)?

It is very hard to give this answer without a proper inspection.

What kind of stain should we use?

There is choices based on your home, what shades you like, shiny or matte finish, previous stain used, etc...

Do we need to use the stain what was previously used?

In most cases it is recommended due to compatability purposes.
