Log Home Rot Repair
How Do You Repair Rot In A Log Home?
Replacing log home rot first requires identifying the extent of the rot and carving out these portions of your home. Sometimes entire logs need to be replaced, and other times we will excavate only pieces of a log. The intention at this stage is to be as least invasive to your home as possible while still completely removing all traces of rot.
We then prepare a new log with identical dimensions to what’s been removed with bolts that will drill into the existing logs of your home. Bolted together, the repaired sections are stained with the existing parts so they blend together and your entire home looks like new.
When Do You Need Rot Repair Vs A Restoration?
Rot repair projects are necessary when a log is rotten beyond saving, whereas a full restoration halts the process of rotting in the early stages. We strongly recommend having a professional inspect the logs of your home to decide whether a rot repair or a restoration is needed.
What Are Signs Of Rotten Logs?
- Black or darkened logs
- Hollow sounding logs when you firmly knock
- Soft logs to the touch
- Plant growth on the logs
- Insects living in the logs
