"We bought our log cabin four years ago. It was a total wreck from years of neglect - carpenter ants/bees, water damage/staining from leaking roof and skylights, etc. But it was six beautiful acres with a private lake one hour from the city... Before we made the decision to tear the house down and start over, we met Ian and his team.
They literally "camped out" in the house for six weeks and totally stripped/stained and resealed the entire house! Four bedrooms, two full baths, great room, kitchen, hallways and the entire outside- including a wrap around deck- was refurbished and protected. And Ian has stayed in touch every year. He just checked on us and this past summer re-sealed the home’s exterior.
The house is our weekend refuge from our insanely, busy workweek. We are there almost every Friday night. The stress just melts away as we pull onto our road and see the perfect house up on the hill overlooking our lake. It's great to know we have someone like Ian if we have any issues. He's always reachable and does a great job!"
Log rot can destroy a log home’s appearance and structural integrity and is a maintenance issue that log owners should address as soon as possible.Performance Log Finishers can help you identify log rot and decay and repair the damage it causes to log homes.
The organisms that cause log rot need warm temperatures (between 60 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit), plenty of oxygen, and 20% or more of a logs fiber to moist. They also need fuel that the rot organisms unfortunately find in the wood that makes up your log home’s primary building material.
If you suspect log rot or decay, contact Performance Log Finishers at 800-781-2551 to schedule a log home inspection.
