StainLock® infusion system

We offer the world’s first machine coated pre-finished logs. The StainLock® Infusion System is the combination of the rustication process and True North’s proprietary machine coated stain process.

The factory applied stain saves the time, labour, and hassle of doing it later when the conditions may not be conducive to finishing (i.e. available time, winter, or in black fly/mosquito season!).

We are extremely satisfied with process/outcome and would highly recommend this to all future log home buyers.

  • Logs require site preparation and cleaning prior to stain application, leading to a higher cost
  • Additional work is needed to install scaffolding which increases build time
