Our home has an open beam cieling with tongue and groove.Our walls are all stone. We were getting our roof reroofed and a disaster happened the following day after the men had removed all hot mop (composite) and rock off the roof: leaving plywood, rafters, and insulation.The men tarpped the exposed roof, but the unfortunate happened when it rained the following day. Most of our tongue and groove through out our home got stained (dark and light stains) with the exception of an octagon shaped room with a steep t&g cieling. This home is a Frank Lloyd Wright inspiration.
We loved the way our cielings looked before the unpleasant looking stains. We've sought opinions but are confused. Should we sand blast with the possibility of having a cieling with grooves all over, should we replace this aged- all it's going to shrink t&g and beams with new material (that our contractor has already told us will all have to be special ordered), or what about sanding?
Bleaching is out of the question because of the extraordinary amt. of water that would need to be used.
Again, what about sanding?
