Bad staining contractor! 5 Replies

Hi my name is Lily and have a one floor 1700 sq' log home with front and back overhangs. I chose the local guy who was supposed to be a log professional. $7500 one or two coats of sikkens and extra sanding, prepping and scraping the sun damaged side of the cabin. Now it's a nightmare. When I first saw that he didnt properly remove old before adding first new coat I quickly researched stain removal. I found someone an hour away who could have come and cob blasted last week. That wall looked…Continue

Just wanted to say Hi! 1 Reply

Hi Everyone.. I'm a new member to the forum and just wanted to say Hi! My story in relation to Log Homes is a little unusual in that I currently live in the UK ( not exactly somewhere known for log homes!) but I've bought land in Transylvania, Romania where my husband and I are retiring to in 2020. We're currently having our dream log house built on our plot In Transylvania and it's been  quite a journey so far. Firstly the bureaucracy In Romania is beyond belief so just getting the Building…Continue

Cedar deck mold 11 Replies

The log home is doing fine with Woodguard that we put on originally and when necessary since we built it. The problem I have is with our new cedar deck. I replaced the old deck which was treated boards. They warped and wouldn't keep the stain very well. I didn't like the look either. The new cedar deck gets mold on it and I can't seem to get rid of it. Tried cleaning it with a wash that was supposed to keep the mold in check. I attached a picture.Any suggestions will be appreciated.Thank you.RodContinue

Wall Leaks 2 Replies

Hello everyone. Our log home was built in 2010 and there is one large (our largest) exposed wall that leaks through the log checks during wind-driven rains. We have had the house sealed and stained twice in 7 years (other than the original stain). While it has helped, we still have the problem every time we get wind-driven horizontal rain. We have resorted to filling all the checks we can get to with log caulk which has helped greatly, but we know it is just a temporary solution and it becomes…Continue

Carpenter Bees 3 Replies

We recently bought a two story log cabin near Atlanta GA. We have a lot of carpenter bees and some woodpeckers are damaging our logs. In the back of the cabin at the roof line is about 25 feet from the ground. Difficult to reach the little wood-boring buggers! Put out two bee traps. Put a dead one in each (I used a tennis racket), but the live bees are ignoring them. Been out about three days.I have read some articles about controlling bees, but ours are quite high to reach. Especially we have…Continue
