i have a red cedar log cabin in northern Ontario. I have been noticing that in the outside corners, the roof doesn't clear the corners and I am having dripping from rain fall onto the outer logs and they are starting to rot and turn black. I have had two roofing companies come in and even with an additional piece of evestrough put on, I am still having the problem..Any suggestions?


You need to get that roof built out past the logs by 2-6". Get the log ends replaced and any bad logs. Unfortunately, we cannot work in Canada.
