Our log home is built from the logs of two log cabins dated around the early 1800's. We have one spot close to the front door that has a rotten area in the middle of the log approx. 5" x 8" and 3" deep. What do you suggest to fill or fix this area with?


I do not really recommend filling in over rotten spots, since the rot only continues. If you do, be sure to apply a liberal amount of borate solution to the existing wood before filling. I would recommend calling Ryan at 877-788-5647 for further help in possibly replacing the logs.
