Have a 20 year old log home. Had the house refinished 8 years ago. Do not know what they used to caulk, but I have water coming into the house during high wind storms that I did not have before. Need to know what needs to be done and if there is a contractor in my area that does that work (Illinois South of Chicago)


It sounds like they may have filled all of the checks in the logs or did not fill properly around the doors and windows. Try call Mike at 866-670-3020.

I live in Scotland UK. I wonder if you could advise me. I have purchased a 30 year old cedar log cabin which leaks between the logs when there are high winds and rain. There was old sealant between them which had fallen out in places. I had replaced where it had been but still having problems. I wonder if you advise as to the most appropriate type of caulking to use.

Thank you for your advice.
