Question:


We have D style log home 15 years old. Windows are jeldwen wood Windows. We have leaks around a couple Windows. We have caulked using polyurethane caulking and it didn't help. I've researched online and found a special caulking for logs that is gritty texture hat will seep into cracks and adhere better. Problem is we still have a leak around one of he Windows. Any advise?

Answer:

You need to use a good quality latex caulk made for log homes like Energy Seal or Conceal. Conceal is the textured caulk you are referring to. If the window continues to leak it may need to be removed and re-installed properly. Any contractor should be able to do this for you.
