We have a BC Red Cedar log home that had a leaky roof for a few years. Ater what seemed like a 2 month cold, my wife has been recently diagnosed with a strong allergy to mold. I was under the impression that Cedar is mold resistant, but could the leaking have created mold in the ceiling? The ceiling is vaulted, with a Cedar interior roof – then 12 inch ‘non-cedar’ joists – then plywood and shingles (now steel to address the leak). What is the reality of Cedar log homes and Mold?
