I built a loghouse 22yrs ago and it has been alot of upkeep. I'm not getting any younger and I was wondering if you have heard of round vinyl covers that just goes over each log. We have about 17 logs that need to be replaced first and we don't know anyone who does it. we live in northern Ill.


I would not recommend covering the logs until the rotten ones are taken care off. It will continue to rot and could become a structural issue in time. Call Ryan at 877-788-5647 for help with that. I do not know of any vinyl covering.

I'm not wild about living in a log home. The exterior bottom half is log uppers are shingles. Can you cover the logs with siding?. If so, what kind? Interior walls are Sheetrock
