Ron - "I could not believe the results!"

After 20 years our log home had lost it’s natural log beauty and after many years of having been stained looked almost like it was painted.  We hired The Log Doctor to restore our home to its original natural look and I could not believe the results.  They air blasted the wood with corn cobs to remove most of the old stain without damaging the wood, then they HAND SANDED the entire house to smooth out the wood.  The end result is a house that looks brand new.  All of the crew was very friendly and were hard workers. If your log home needs a face lift you should give these guys a call.  I could not be happier with the job they did.

Winter intervened before we could have our rear steps re-done. But Andrea kept in touch with us and when the weather changed her craftsman arrived and did a superb job recreating our original, wooden railings and steps. Great customer service and really, really excellent expertise in woodwork and custom railings and steps etc. We are very happy clients.

Rudy was very good, he honored his word, was punctual, polite and respectful and we were very pleased overall and will use him again.

We recently were in the process of purchasing a cabin in Como, CO.  Through the property inspection, it was determined that the exterior was not properly maintenanced over the years.  The restoration, re-staining and re-chinking of the cabin comes at a substantial cost.  We needed to have a professional come out and assess the scope of work so we could receive appropriate concessions for the work that needed to be done.

We hired The Log Doctor to complete a full restoration on our recently purchased log cabin––it was a big decision for us, but we felt very confident in Rudy’s experience, professionalism and confidence. He told me our cabin would look like new in just a few weeks, and he was 100% right. Everything turned out amazing––the cabin has a fresh new look and most importantly, will be protected for years to come.

Additionally, it is so well sealed that we don’t have mice or other rodents anywhere inside, which is a very difficult claim to make when owning a log cabin in the mountains.

Rudy’s team went above and beyond––they left the inside and outside spotless, washed the windows on the last day, and even took care of some critters we had in the attic. I can’t recommend them enough.

We have been very pleased with The Log Doctor's work. They have done two jobs for us. The crew are careful, friendly and hardworking. And both jobs were very well done. Our house looks great!

Dick T., Grand Lake, CO.

I have a log home on Shadow Mountain lake and the west face takes a bearing from sun and wind. The Log Doctor crew worked for 3 days on the logs and flashing and even added on refinishing my railing and underside of deck. It all looks spectacular. LD is not inexpensive but I feel they gave me my money’s worth. I highly recommend them.

We purchased our log home two years ago. The logs needed restaining, the faschia paint was peeling and the deck needed work. We contacted The Log Doctor and received a response right away to set up a time to visit the house. This is quite rare in our county. Rudy was so knowledgeable and explained what did and did not need to be done to our home. Once the snow cleared, the team came out right awy to complete the work. They did a great job and was focused on doing a professional job with attention to detail. The team did a wondeerful job protecting the windows and the clean up was superb. We had neighbors over Saturday and they all commented on how great the house looks. We will definitely contact the Log Doctor again!

Rudy’s integrity showed the first time we met him. We knew immediately that every word he said was truthful and that he would follow through with everything he told us. He explained the process of re-finishing my father’s log home, answering all of our questions and showing us a sample of what the end product would look like. Rudy’s team did follow through with everything Rudy promised; and by hand. They were hard workers and they were precise. Every log and chinking was completed to a brilliant finish. The log home looks brand new. We would hire Rudy again and we highly recommend him.

Kim, Alma, CO

I give The Log Doctor my highest recommendation! Rudy and Andrea were so easy to work with and the project went very smoothly - how often does that happen with contractors? They did what they said they would do, on time and for the projected price. They were happy to help out with a few additional needs that came up, too. The quality of the work was top notch - our cabin has been completely restored and looks beautiful! A+.

We maintain our log home is good shape but it was time to have the exterior refinished. This is the first log home we have owned so we were unsure of what would be required to return it to its original beauty. We researched the care and maintenance of log homes very carefully. It became abundantly apparent that only power washing and re-staining would be penny wise and pound foolish. The Log Doctor has a five step process that gets down to the original pristine wood surface before they apply a high quality stain and then a sealer. This is done by power blasting with finely ground corn cobs, then hand grinding, then power washing and then high pressure air blasting every square inch of the log surfaces. They also replaced our porch railing to maintain the original authentic character of the log home. The job has been completed and our log home looks like new. The Log Doctor crew was professional, knowledgeable, diligent, trustworthy and took great pride in their work. They were also the hardest working craftsmen and women we have ever encountered. They also kept the work site impeccably clean every day. We are thrilled with their work and recommend them highly.

We recently completed construction of a new log home in the Grand Lake area. The project came with many surprises, some good and some not so good. One of the bright spots in the complete construction process was the crew from the Log Doctor. Rudy gave us a schedule when he quoted the job and they finished the job almost exactly on the day he said they would. We used them for both staining and chinking and not only did they show up on time every day, which we found was not the case with most subs, the quality of their work was second to none.

I recently hired the Log Doctor to do a complete restoration on my small log home. It hadn't had any TLC for more than 20 years and had old layers of stain, lots of sun damage that actually turned the logs black and probably dirt and dust on the logs and siding from wind and rain and snow. The crew was delayed at the start due to materials not being available but as soon as they started they worked 12 hour days and got it done in a very timely manner. Their attention to detail and expertise in every aspect of the work was exceptional. The house looks even better than when it was new! Also excellent customer service. Every time I needed to talk my call was answered. I highly recommend the Log Doctor.

I would like to enthusiastically recommend Rudy Mendiola and his company, Log Doctor. He recently completed the restoration of my deck in Eagles Nest. He and his workers were meticulous both in the evaluation of the necessary repairs and in their work. As with many home repairs, as the work begins one discovers that the repair needs to be more extensive than the original assessment. The best products and approaches were recommended and while necessarily somewhat more expensive, I feel the job was done right and will weather the extreme conditions here in the mountains. Plus it looks just GREAT!! ! Many neighbors have complimented the improvements and I am looking forward to enjoying the outdoor space for years and years to come.

John T. - Keystone, CO

Your services were top notch. Your crew was efficient and the work done was excellent throughout.

Tim and Linda B., Silverthorne, CO

Our 3,000 sq foot home in Silverthorne was in desperate need of restoration. The log siding was absolutely black with deep cracks. Rudy's crew got in and removed all the black, sanded every single log, stained and restored the entire home and decks. These guys are obviously experienced professionals. They cleaned up the entire property every day. We could not be happier with the outcome. We are truly proud home owners again. Thank you Rudy and Log Doctor.

Lloyd M., Keystone, CO

I hired The Log Doctor to refinish my badly weathered log home last September and I’m very pleased with the results. My home looks new again. From the corn cob blasting, through grinding, staining and chinking, their employees were considerate, thorough, hard-working, pleasant, and punctual, getting the job done as promised. They not only delivered what they promised, they clearly care about the quality of their workmanship.

Ken B. - Breckenridge, CO

Interior work: We had to have the log doctor come in and sand and re stain all interior walls due to water damage. The crew did a really good job, communication was very good. This was an insurance claim and the log doctor was very patient with the timeframe of getting their money from the insurance carrier which was a huge plus. Will be using the log doctor when I re stain the outside of home in the future.

Logdoctor completed 2 projects for me this summer. We had some delays getting both projects underway. However, once started Rudy and his guys were outstanding in work and professionalism. They replaced hand peeled deck railing and later in the summer refinished and did chinking repair on our exterior. Both look outstanding. He uses top rated products and his guys pay
outstanding attention to detail. They clean up daily and we're extremely nice, conversant and worked hard (about 12 H) per day to get the job finished. 5 Stars!!!
