Log Home Maintenance VS Log Home Restoration
|Like any home, log cabins and homes require care and maintenance. In order for the exteriors appearance and integrity to remain in good condition, this should never be skipped. In fact, if left too long your home could require restoration and a complete refinishing. For this reason, it’s important to make sure that you stick to your maintenance schedule. Moreover, it’s is less expensive to perform regular maintenance on your log home, than it is to skip a few years and risk needing restoration.
Today’s beautiful log home kits are built from many species such as white cedar, western red cedar, hemlock, pines, spruce, oak, cypress, and are moved on-site via truck for construction. The exteriors of these log homes and log cabins require protection from the elements, especially rot and decay due to extended periods of exposure to moisture. This is why log home maintenance is important. Levels exceeding 20% WMC is where rot can begin to set in. Owners of log homes are faced with the challenges of maintaining and restoring the wood as needed. If neglected, this may mean having the home or cabin corn cob or crushed glass blasted, or chemically stripped and pressure washed , depending on the logs condition.
