How often would I have to replenish the surface if I used Timbor on a log home?
The surface will be stained with a Behr siding product for sealing/staining purposes.
Timbor is more typically used on wood that will not be exposed to weathering and the outside. You would need to re-apply the Timbor each time you re-sealed the wood with the Behr product. The same company that makes Timbor makes a product called Bora-Care. It is more expensive, but it is a liquid solution instead of a powder. The Bora-Care will penetrate deeper in the wood, and protect the wood indefinitely so you would not have to re apply the product ever again. Also, Bora-Care dries clear and is easier to paint or stain over whereas the Timbor leaves a white powder on the surface and is more difficult to paint or stain.
