Question:


We recently build new northern white cedar home. The home is currently under roof with all doors and windows in. When we get a driving rain from the west or the south, we get some water leakage "through" the walls. The logs have not yet been sealed, but are of tongue and groove construction with two beads of sikaflex caulk and a strip of weather strip. Do you have any suggestions to deal with this problem?

Thanks for the help.
B.A.

Answer:

I would recommend caulking the entire exterior with Energy Seal before staining.
