Question:


We have a 7 year old log home we had built. We are having issuses with air leaks around doors and windows. They were cut out with a chainsaw,don't know if that's how it is suppose to be done. Anyway can you recommend how we might be able to stop our air leaks. We've tried numerous things with no luck.

Thanks,
Connie Spoon

Answer:

Cutting out with chainsaws is correct, but if they didn't install "bucks" to place windows in could cause your problems. I would start by caulking around them. If you have already done this then they will need to be taken out and re-installed correctly.
