How Do You Repair or Replace The Logs in a Log Home?
There are a few different ways to repair rotten logs in a log home. The first step in repairing the rotten or deteriorated logs in your log home is a thorough inspection of the damaged area. We need to explore the area structurally and see not only the extent of the damage but if we can also spot what is contributing to the problem so we can make sure it doesn’t happen again. Is it insects? Is it water intrusion’? We’ll find out. We also want to determine which type of repair is going to work best.
In some cases, if the damage is minimal and affecting the home structurally then we can repair rotten areas using special epoxies and wood fillers. These are very effective for repairing small areas that might have been damaged so long as the outer shell of the log is still in tact. For areas that have been severely rotted then log replacement is going to be necessary and obviously requires a little more time and skill but will still come out looking like new.
