I have a home built in 93. I appear to have what looks like creosote leaching out of the purlins in my ceiling. The logs affected are right next to my woodstove and another fireplace on the other side of the house. Is this an issue with the logs having to much heat on them? The oozing will still occur after there hasn't been a fire for days.


Yes, the wood stove is definitely the cause. The logs were probably not completely dried when installed and it will probably never stop. It is called Resin Bleed and normally is caused from the sun heating a wall on the exterior.
