Log Home Maintenance

 
This is the most common question in log home restoration. Northern Log Home Restoration feels that logs need annual care and maintenance. Proper maintenance will improve the longevity of your finish and lessen the risks of product failure. We recommend the following annual maintenance:
  • Cleaning of your logs-we recommend this twice a year
  • Inspection of log surfaces for signs of damage
  • Examine potential moisture issues
  • Sealants – be sure to check for any new upward checks ¼ inch or previous applications aren’t torn or pulled away
  • Gutter systems are in place and working properly
These recommendations are within the ability of most homeowners. Northern Log Home Restoration offers an Annual Maintenance Program. For more information on the program, please contact us.

 
How do I keep my log home looking beautiful for years to come?

This is the most common question in log home restoration. Northern Log Home Restoration feels that log homes or cabins require routine care and maintenance. By doing proper maintenance it will improve the longevity of your finish and lessen the risks of product failure as well as mildew or fungus growth.

After a log home or cabin has been restored or just built we recommend the cleaning of the logs twice a year, preferably in the Fall and the Spring. Dirt, pollen, mildew and other grime accumulate on the surface of the log. Removal of these will substantially help the life of the finish. You should also check over the entire structure looking for any contributing factors that can cause finish failure; including crack or holes in the chinking/caulking on the logs and around windows. Insects like carpenter ants or bees can create holes in the wood.

Northern Log Home Restoration offers an Annual Maintenance Program that will keep your investment looking beautiful for years to come. For more information on the program, please contact us.
