Question:


WE HAVE A NEW LOG HOME CONSTRUCTED ONE YEAR AGO AND HAVE DISCOVERED ONE WALL HAS A SLIGHT 1/4 INCH BOW IN IT...CAN YOU ADVISE AS TO WHAT IS CALLED A "MECHANICAL LOG" WITH VERTICAL PLACEMENT AND SCREWS THAT CAN BE INSTALLED TO BRING THIS WALL BACK INTO FORM? THANKS FOR INFORMATION ON HOW TO REPAIR THIS AND WHERE TO FIND SUCH A PIECE THAT CAN BE INSTALLED TO THE WALL?

Answer:

I have never heard of this "mechanical log". I really wouldn't worry too much about a 1/4". You should probably have a structural engineer look at it.

I'm possibly considering purchase of this home. Could the logs that are bulged be a real concern? other than cosmetic. Or does it suggest a failure or problem with the wall? Should I walk away ? Should I
use it as a bargaining point? If I do consider it, do you do home inspections? What would you charge for the inspection? The home is at 315 Cherry st Jackson nj I tried to include a pix but it didn't take. If you could realtor.com the address and look I'd appreciate it.
Thanks
