Log Home Maintenance

How do you maintain the outside of a log home?

Log home maintenance is based on the environment and location of your home. Some log homes need attention annually whereas others may only need attention every two to three years.

Log home hot spots are the areas identified during log home inspections or log home restoration. These hot spots usually tend to be areas of high sun exposure, low sun exposure, high moisture, and anywhere there is splash back on the logs from the ground or a deck. Water infiltration could lead to rotten logs, premature stain failure, or discoloring of the logs due to mold or mildew forming beneath the stain.
