I am looking at buying home in northern Arizona. The appraiser made a big issue out of several cracks in some of the logs, especially some of the beams. Some were 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 inches deep. They sugguested that a structual engineer look at the home. How serious is this issue?


In my opinion, not serious at all. We see this all of the time and it never is an issue. It happens a lot on the interior due to dry winters.
