Question:


when it rains hard i get leakage from the beams that hold the upstairs floor boards,the beams are notched into the exterior walls, i have caulked and restained the outside,and i can't tell from the outside where it is comeing from. it is a pine log home the logs fit together toung and groove,should i try caulking from the inside where i can see where the water is coming from.

Answer:

I would recommend that you keep investigating the exterior untill you find the leak. If you seal the interior and it is still leaking into the logs it will rot over time.
