I have a log home that was built in 1988. The first floor is a true log home and the second floor is actually stick built and has log siding. I have a few logs that are rotted and the siding is in rough shape. Should I repair the rotted logs and replace the siding on the second floor or just repair the rot and put siding over the complete house?


You should replace logs even if you put siding on the house. If you do not repair it will continue to rot under the siding and could cause a structural issue over time.

My log cabin has rotten logs at the base on the rear of the cabin and need someone to replace them. We live in East Texas near Tyler, TX. Do you know anyone who can perform this work? Thanks, Hp
