Question:


Hello ~ we purchased a home in AZ this last Sept. There's several exterior beams with wide cracks. I'm assuming they are natural. The house was built in 2003 and I don't think the beams have been treated in years. Do we fill the cracks, stain and seal or do we need a professional to look at this?

Answer:

You can fill them on the interior if you would like. Do not fill them if it is exterior.

We also bought a house in AZ built in 2003 with interior pine log beams and pine paneling ceiling. The logs have some cracks and do not appeared to be sealed. Is it necessary to seal the log beams or is it ok to leave them natural and untreated?
