No matter if you’ve just built your home, or recently finished a restoration, maintaining your home and it’s future is the next highly important step! Log homes require extended care, or you will inevitably encounter costly repairs in the long run. Log homes are tricky in that problems take a long time to show, but when they do, they’re of the upmost priority. Logs will eventually fail without maintenance so it’s crucial that you have a long-term maintenance plan in place.

Keep in mind that even if your home is in great shape, subsequent touch-ups will always be necessary. One simple way to keep track and on top of what requires attention is to make note of any problem areas and observe how different weather patterns and elements affect these areas over time. Pay special attention to the following: What walls receive the harshest, most-direct sunlight? What walls receive the most moisture from rain? Where does snow build up around the base of the structure? What plants or trees are close to the house that would rub the finish off when the wind blows? The purpose of this exercise is to anticipate where future problems may occur. This will keep your home looking newer and will require less maintenance and fewer costly repairs.
