Question:


We are interested in a log home that was built in 1982. It hasn't been treated for a long time and some of the logs are rotting. We were thinking that we could just put siding up. Is this possible and if so what is the best kind to put up. Thanks

Answer:

You can just put siding up, but you need to address the rot first. If you do not it will continue to rot behind the siding and could cause structural issues later. Call Ryan at 877-788-5647 for help with this.

I cant fathom siding a log home.
And as stated, the rot must be adressed,
hence log replacement.
At that point siding has no lure.
