Question:


I have irregular shaped D-cut cedar logs. Some of which are rotting due to poor protection from the elements on NE side of the home. I would like to applya maitnenace free exterior. What would work best to cover these logs? Siding, stucco, Stone, etc..Do I need to be concerned about seasonal log expansion if I secure the covering to the logs?

Answer:

First, you should address the rot and not just cover it or it could become a structural issue. You should attach furring strips with expansion slots for the logs to move and not disturb the new siding. Call Ryan at 877-788-5647 in regard to the rot.
