home maintenance is extremely important to protect your investment.
Many different products are available for use during the construction
and maintaining of your log structure. During the course
of building your home, proper application of sealant between
logs and in corners is crucial, if your home is to be air-tight
and leak-free. Please make certain that you are using
experienced log builders who have built homes before and are
aware of the necessary steps involved.
your home consists of regular inspections (by professionals
or the homeowner) and correct stain/seal application.
Log homes should be stained/sealed within a month or two of
their completed construction. Future stain/seals are dependent
upon climate, log type, products used, and location. Usually,
every 5-7 years a new coat should be applied.
