In the Beginning....














In 1988 off the kitchen table of his newly-built log home, Chris & Suzanne Rumball started to sell wood restoration products for the do it yourself builder. These folks had purchased log or siding homes and needed help in maintenance. Chris had built his log home several years before and had gained a fair amount of knowledge in the care of wood, thus started Cedar Laine Restoration. Chris soon realized that

he had found a niche with his attention to detail, love of wood & passion for environmental stewardship.

Take a look at us now....
