Log Home Maintenance Frequently Asked QuestionsShould I Power Wash My Log Home?
No. Never power wash your log home! The pressure can damage logs and drive water deep into the wood where it may never dry.
No. Please, do not paint your logs. Paint will not allow the wood to breath properly and could lead to premature damage.Should I Fill In The Checks Between My Logs?
No. Unless they allow wind, water, and insects to enter your log home. Checks are a natural way for the logs to breathe. If you have filled some, be sure to inspect them often for breaks in the caulk. If water gets behind the caulk, the wood can't dry out fast enough and will cause log rot!What About My Landscaping?
Make sure any bushes or plants have a minimum of 18 inch clearance away from the logs. This will allow air circulation and prevent mold and mildew issues from the plants holding moisture against the logs of your log home..How Often Should I Do A Maintenance Check?
Perform yearly maintenance checks or contact the log home maintenance professionals at LogDoctors to implement a log home maintenance program. Check for water leaks, signs of insect infestation and finish failure. The sooner these problems are discovered the less difficult (and costly) they will be to resolve.
