Performance Log Finishers offer several log repair routes from surface repair, partial log, and full log replacement.
Superficial Surface Damage
Some damaged logs can be repaired by injecting epoxy products that reconstitute rotted wood fibers, especially if the damage is close to the surface and not structurally significant. Rotted log ends can sometimes be repaired by using epoxy fillers and impel rods. When rotting is bad enough even these steps are not sufficient to repair a log, the best solution is partial or full log replacement.
Partial Log Replacement
Partial log replacement involves removing decayed wood until healthy solid wood is revealed. If more than 60% of the log is compromised we would then go to full log replacement. A borate-based log preservative is applied before the new log setting. After the complete process your home will look as if it was not even damaged in the first place.
Full Log Replacement
Full log replacement is far more complex than partial log replacement and is normally only done by experienced log home repair experts. The type of wood, size and shape of the log must be matched to ensure the best look and fit. Full log replacement can impact the structural integrity of the entire home, so expert planning and careful use of the right tools is essential.
Log ends can become saturated with water from lack of gutters on home or proper check maintenance which may cause log ends to rot. Here at Performance Log Finishers we can remove and replace corners to prevent rot from spreading into your log walls. Ask us about log end sealing to prevent this from ever happening to you home.
