The uniqueness and beauty of log homes do have some unique maintenance requirements to keep in mind.

  • • Log walls dry out and settle over time. Even a home that has been standing for a hundred years is going to see some settling due to the unique nature of wood. Log walls consist of billions of tiny cells that were once very alive. Shrinking, twisting, and yes, even cracking are very much a part of the log home charm, and need addressing when necessary.
  • • Make sure to give your home an inspection every six months. During this routine, keep an eye out for mold, mildew, and dry-rot, as catching these early can save thousands in repair costs. This is also easily done by a company specializing in the upkeep and maintenance of log homes.
  • • Staining your home does a lot more for preserving it than you might think. Staining keeps the water beading off the walls instead of soaking in, which greatly adds to the logs’ longevity. Target to complete this task at least every three years, and possibly more for areas that are exposed to direct sunlight, wind, or severe weather.
  • • Finally, expect to focus on pest control, since living in the wilderness tends to have an increased population of wildlife, the small and the large kind.
